“Exceptional accommodation owned by the friendliest of people.”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our stay at the Retreat was nothing short of exceptional. Jill & Stuart are the most fantastic hosts. They have the perfect balance of being friendly and approachable along side giving you complete privacy.
The accommodation is light, airy, clean and maintained to a high standard. The complimentary refreshments on arrival are a lovely touch.
The private use of the indoor heated pool is a real asset and together with the table tennis facility these were used daily. It was lovely to be able to lounge by the pool while we watched the children play happily for hours!
The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful with some lovely walks straight from the door. We would often sit on the balcony and enjoy a family game of cards listening to the birds singing and the lambs bleating in the sunshine. Once the sunsets the tranquility of the area is amazing- a quiet that is quite simply beautiful accompanied with a stunning array of stars on a clear night.
The Retreat would be an excellent location for an equestrian person looking for somewhere to visit with their horse as there are stables available to rent on site and an incredible cross country course only a stones throw away.
Eastnor Pottery in Ledbury is most certainly worth a visit. Our children had a go at making pots on the potters wheel which they thoroughly enjoyed.
We cannot recommend The Retreat highly enough and will be returning. Your search for somewhere relaxing to stay stops here- we promise you won't find better.

“Fantastic just what we needed ”
Reviewed 7 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

What a fantastic little cottage in perfect grounds. We were made to feel very welcome by Stuart. He met us on arrival and showed us where everything was and how things worked.
We stayed here as a group of 4 girls wanting to chill out away from it all. We were not disappointed.
The pool and sauna were amazing and kept at a fantastic temperature.
There is a table tennis and a small selection of exercise equipment too. The pool is a great size for just a chill out weekend and was used a lot for our stay.
The rooms were a great size. One bedroom and bathroom with the kitchen and living in one. The beds were very comfy.
The kitchen has everything you need and more so.
The grounds are vast and they have 2 beautiful horses and sheep. Shame about the weather for us we would have have a walk around the land however it was down pours all day. Maybe next time we will be able to get out.
I would recommend any of my friends and family to stay here for a nice weekend getaway.

One small tip take a pair of flip flops to transfer from the apartment to the pool.

“Fantastic place to stay!!”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing two night stay at The Retreat. The accommodation was beautifully presented and well equipped. We all had an amazing time using the private pool and table tennis etc. it was better than we expected!!
Jill and Stuart were marvellous hosts who explained all we needed to know on arrival and then just let us get on with our break, but were there if we required anything.
A beautiful place to stay and would
highly recommend it to anyone. We certainly hope to return in the future.
