“You have to book and stay here to get a wonderful experience that no words can do it justice!”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

A surprise booking for my husbands 60th birthday celebration We stayed from the 23rd -28th December and it was fantastic. From my initial contact via email with Diane and Bill to the greeting on the day we arrived and the communication after the event, I have to say first class customer service, with charm, charisma and friendliness. 10 of us stayed from family to extended family, with age range 28-86! and 2 dogs, there was plenty of space to not feel on top of each other, rooms were spacious, luxurious and had very comfortable beds with great linen. The little touches that mean so much were catered for throughout the whole of the house. The kitchen utensils, cutlery and crockery are ample, apart from not wanting to leave, there are no negatives at all with the booking, communication and the wonderful house and grounds. You must stay here to experience what we did and you will see what I mean, AMAZING!

“A house you never want to leave.”
Reviewed 30 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Oh my goodness, there are not enough words to describe how wonderful this house is. Celebrated my 40th birthday with my best friends and we had an amazing time.
The owner Diane is wonderful and so friendly. On arriving at the house i had goosebumps with how beautiful the house looked but when we walked through the door our jaws dropped. It is amazing. Every room is superb. Each room has its own style and not one dissapointed. We will definately return.

“ABSOLUTE LUXURY”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

a group of 11 girlfriends stayed in this beautiful house for a long weekend. The hamper left for us was amazing in itself, let alone the rest of the facilities provided for our comfort. The rooms were gorgeous and the views from the bedrooms including the sunset on Sunday night well they are just unforgettable. We loved the hot tub and made good use of it, the horses and sheep in "our garden" were a joy. Nothing I can say in this review can do full justice to how wonderful The Gables Retreat actually is, you have to visit it to believe it. I and all my friends who shared the time there with me would definitely recommend you book a stay here, you will not be disappointed I can assure you. Thank you Diane and your family for making us so welcome and for all your kindness

“Fantastic place to get away from it all”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

A group of 9 of us including 3 children had a fabulous long weekend at this property. The house was spacious, very clean, well maintained and beautifully furnished. The welcome hamper far exceeded our expectations and the robes and slippers were a lovely touch. Everything we needed seemed to have been thought of and provided. The hot tub was well used and the outdoor games and animals in the paddock kept both children and adults entertained. Wifi was easy to access and very reliable. Very peaceful location. Would highly recommend.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This is the second time that my family and I have stayed at this property. There is no other word to describe it other than perfect. A large welcoming hamper and well prepared rooms. The location is extremely quiet and ideal for the 'chilling out'. The grandchildren loved inter-action with the animals in the paddock at the side of the house. The hot tub was clean and well maintained. Overall, we could not find anything to complain about. WE WILL BE BACK.

We stayed at the Gables Retreat with our grown up children & their families to celebrate our Ruby Wedding. Everything about the house & gardens was perfect for us, we had children from 10 yrs to 8 months, all enjoyed the house & freedom of the enclosed garden with the toys & friendly animals. The hot tub was used & loved by alll of us. On the Sunday we had arranged for a blessing at the local church, with more friends & family coming to join us afterwards at the house for a party. It was amazing the sun shone & we had a ball. Many thanks for the thoughtful extras provided by our hosts, Diane & Bill, who put flowers in the church, and left champagne in our welcome hamper. As I said a memorable weekend, we will definitely be back.
