“Six enjoyable days!”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

I have recently spent six enjoyable days at River Ridge Retreat. Prior to going there I had sore hips, which had persisted for two years. Where I stayed in one of the wheelchair accessible units
After two days of my six day stay the pain in my hips disappeared. My bed was so comfortable and the tranquillity of River Ridge Retreat was so therapeutic to for my body and my general well-being, that I can personally recommend it..
Adele and Gary, the hosts at River Ridge Retreat are so warm and welcoming that I felt ‘at home’ as soon as I met them.
There are so many short sight-seeing places to visit whilst I was there also.
