“Pet friendly 5* retreat”
Reviewed 6 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We were so impressed with everythng about Jo and Barry's beautiful 'New England" style house which is very unique. Combined with its luxury tasteful interior and its beautiful setting right on the water's edge of Windrush Lake, this set the mood for a relaxing and luxurious 3 night break with our dog Lotte. Jo and Barry met us personally at the property which was so nice and we had a guided tour before they left us to enjoy our break. The house itself is quite simply stunning, such a find as normally a property of this quality would not be dog friendly. Jo has thought of everthing and we really were very appreciative of the bottle of prosecco left cooling in the large fridge which was devoured whilst soaking in the hot tub on our first night of settling in. The doggy treats were loved by Lotte, as was the toffee cake and cookies for the humans (Lotte also had a taste of these!). The beds were of the highest quality, as was the bedlinen and the house felt very spacious and light. There is so much to do in the vicinity and the spa at the hotel across the road was made available to us which we thoroughly enjoyed. After a day out we could not wait to return to this gorgeous retreat each evening. We would love to visit again in the summer months when the outside decking could be utilised and Jo and Barry provide a barbeque and rattan furniture for this purpose. We have stayed in lots of houses but this one is way up at the top of our 'must return' properties.

Wow! What a great review - we are so so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is reviews like this that make it all worth it. We love having guests to visit and look forward to welcoming you back in the summer to enjoy sitting on the decking , enjoying the view with a cold drink in hand (and of course a treat for Lotte)

“Perfect hosts and beautiful home!”
Reviewed 15 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a fab time when we stayed at the beautiful and well equipped home. When we arrived we were shown around the property and had a lesson in how to use the hot tub. My little boy loved having the flexibility of going out on the decking and watching the wildlife outside and we felt very safe with the security people at the gates. The grounds are very well maintained and the lake is stunning. Jo and Barry went to so much effort to make our stay enjoyable with cake, biscuits and prosecco due to a celebration provided. Thank you!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 19 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Such a big beautiful house! So homely and luxurious. I came for my birthday with my boyfriend and my dog. We were greeted with some lovely home made biscuits, a birthday cake, a bottle of prosecco and some doggie mince pies!

The house itself is so lovely, we loved that we could play any song you could think of throughout the whole house. It was also really nice to have a TV in the master bedroom and so many channels and movies downstairs. We appreciated the heating so much as we came in January and we loved the hot tub to warm us up after a day of walking.

Don't worry if you have forgotten something. Barry and Jo have probably already got it at their holiday home! Even had towels to dry the dog after long walks, dishwasher tablets and washing powder for the washing machine!

Amazing place had such a lovely birthday here and my family loved it too when they came over one day. We definitely will becoming back! If you would like a good priced holiday with amazing views, away from all the hustle and bustle but with shops, restaurants and pubs very close by this is the holiday for you!

“Perfect retreat!”
Reviewed 5 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My husband and I have just come back from a fantastic few days in the Cotswolds and what a fabulous time we had! The accommodation was beautiful and was equipped with everything that is needed and more! There was nothing that the owners did not think of.

Upon arrival, the owners were there to greet us and house was immaculate and very welcoming. They were able to show us around and ensured that we had everything that we needed for our stay.

Of course one of the highlights is the hot tub, which is a fantastic feature, as it allows you to take in the relaxing ambience that the Cotswold have to offer!

During our stay we managed to visit all of the local towns, which were in east driving distance and had a lot to offer! We will definitely be visiting again!

“Post Christmas Haven 😃”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We have just returned from our wonderful two night stay with friends and our 2 dogs.
I can genuinely recommend The Retreat as a home-from-home break.
Jo and Barry have hit the spot with their attention to detail, providing a holiday home with all the little luxuries that make you feel like you've picked up your house and relocated it. Sonos sound system, Sky, coffee machine and hot tub to name but a few, along with the boutique-style interior make for a very comfortable stay.
Perfect to sit back and relax whilst watching life around the lake. Plenty to do in the local area too with lots of good places to eat and every conceivable activity covered on site and off.

We will hopefully be booking a return trip very soon.

We're so pleased you and your family, friends and the dogs enjoyed your stay with us. We would love to have you back again - maybe the summer when you can sit on the decking and enjoy a glass of wine with the restful lake as the view
