Orchard Retreat is a real find! Situated next to a pear orchard and next to a small pond, complete with moor hen and chicks, this wonderful summerhouse is set in the most beautiful garden you can imagine.
Orchard Retreat is completely self contained, properly constructed building, but in easy reach of the farmhouse should you need anything. It's great as you can come and go as you please without disturbing anyone and, should you prefer not to eat out, there's crockery for two so you can have a picnic outside on the decking if you like or of course, inside. The interior is spotlessly clean and very well maintained.
Lynda has a real eye for detail; a wonderfully comfortable bed, crisp white linens, spa quality soaps and shower gels as well as good decorative touches. The shortbread is a real treat, as is the full English breakfast - fantastic.
I genuine can't think of anything I would change. Lynda is a very attentive host, nothing seems too much trouble and we were made to feel very welcome. I'd certainly recommend it and would be very happy to stay there again.
