Really wish we could give this a 5 star review as we were so looking forward to it but having just returned unfortunately thats not the case. We booked for a 4 night stay but ended up packing up and leaving a night early due to noise from the other 2 tents. This could be a lovely 'retreat' if it was managed and advertised as simply that. It has the perfect setting to be that, however, the fact that loud music is allowed up until 8.30pm clearly doesn't paint the picture for a retreat. We had 2 perfect nights with the other 2 tents occupied, who were there as we were for a nice relaxing stay and posed no problem. However the 3rd night, the other 2 tents joined together to play drinking games and loud music until 11.45pm with shouting, obscenities and rude comments being shouted at the tops of their voices. We did let management know. However, on the Thursday morning they woke up and again congregated now in the middle tent, going out to purchase more alchohol and from the moment they woke up were loud again. We had a great day out and came back around 4.30pm to have a nice relaxing spa (not that this was that important as we have one at home) but to just chill but were met with the shouting, screaming, again that carried on until we finally couldn't hear ourselves think, let alone try and read a book on the porch, that we finally decided enough was enough and packed our things and left, therefore leaving one night early and missing out on the activities booked for the next day but this was not what we signed up for. We signed up for a relaxing 4 nights away, not being in the middle of Ayia Napa! They had been spoken to by the owners and said the magic word of 'sorry' which was obviously not genuine or they wouldn't have continued to the whole day and night again. The owners at first agreed to our request of a refund for the night but then after a very disappointing customer service response from them they pretty much laid the blame on us for leaving and offered a one night return stay. Why on earth would we want to return. The tents are nice but again, felt a few tweaks needed. Such a shame as this could be a really good place and business but still an awful lot to learn and clearly in its infancy. Would only recommend if you were hiring out all 3 tents.

We have just returned from a weekend of fun at Rackery Retreat celebrating with family and friends. We hired all 3 tents so we had no worries about disturbing anyone else. The tents are spotless and fully equipped. Beds made up on arrival and very comfortable! Small kit here but again equipped with all that you need. Top stove, kettle, toaster and fridge. No freezer though. Bathroom-lovely free standing bath with a separate shower... Beautiful views for you to enjoy whilst sat in the hot tub with a glass of fizz. We hired a chef for the Saturday evening! Excellent food. Would highly recommend!

A Beautiful safari tent in an amazing location, Andrew was very helpful and the whole stay was amazing. we stayed in the Oak which is very private, had a couple of take aways but The Swan was the best. Great for a family 👪 Will definitely stay again (if there's any availability)

Book it! We had a fantastic stay, so much so we extended and stayed another night. The accommodation, location, scenery and peace and tranquillity here is second to none. We are shift workers and came to get away from it all. If you are looking for a retreat that is of the upmost luxury, to do nothing but relax and unwind then this is for you. We spent hours in the hot tub admiring the views and wildlife, nipped into chester for a lovely meal and took a walk around the local area recommended by Andrew. This family are family goals. Talking to Andrew and Jenny was all part of the experience and it is clear what a hard working family they have been over the years. You have everything you need here and you will not be disappointed. The mix of a canvas safari tent and all the luxurys is perfect. The tents not only have a lovely log burner stove but also central heating! Book it up and make the most of getting away from it all!

A family of 5 adults and I child, we stayed in the 6 berth Beech tent. I can’t fault this family run business. Rackery Retreat is set on a farm and Andrew was very accommodating in allowing my grandson to see the calves and sit on the tractor. The safari tent provided glamping at its most luxurious. The accommodation is gorgeous and everything was spotlessly clean. For us it was a staycation as we live in the nearby village of Rossett- a first family trip post lockdown .... well worth the money!
