Everything about this 2 day break was great. The accommodation, the friendly owner, the surrounding countryside were all spot on. Oh yes, before I forget, exclusive use of a heated indoor pool and sauna! Couldn't get the family out!
This was a quick last minute booking for my wife's big birthday and she says it was the best treat of her birthday week.
Will definitely return.
Had a lovely xmas stay at The Retreat. Owners were welcoming and helpful and left us with some xmas treats which was a nice touch. The accommodation was compact, clean and very comfortable. Everything you need for a home from home trip was present and the bonus was the private pool which kept our kids busy during our stay. Thank you for a wonderful stay
We were looking for somewhere to stay over the New Year break where we could also take our dog and were delighted to find the Retreat. Set in open countryside, but within easy reach of local places of interest and towns, the accommodation is well equipped and perfect for a relaxing or active (or both!) break. The upstairs is laid out in a spacious living area with comfortable sofa bed and sofa and large double en suite. The downstairs area is a beautiful spa with heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, ping pong table and lounging area, with a pretty terrace to relax in warmer weather. There are plenty of walks to enjoy nearby and on the premises, though a great time could be had enjoying the pool, board games and DVD collection if something more relaxing is required. The kitchen is well equipped and laid out, so catering for yourself is a pleasure, though there are options to order food in, as well as a great local pub (The Baiting House) which serves good food and interesting beers.
Great venue, fantastic accommodation, super pool, excellent sauna, relaxation at its best. Like to say none of those things to keep you all away, so we can go anytime, lol, but won't. Sweet hosts, sweet place, will be going back. A+

We went for a relaxing break and were not disappointed. Perfect for all ages and set within stunning grounds. The amenities were brilliant and the accommodation was great. Very warm and welcoming hosts who truly deserve the 5 stars I've rated.
Me my partner and our two year old went away for our fifth year anniversary. My partner works really hard and this was the perfect relaxation for him. The swimming pool and sauna was amazing and purely for our use during our stay. Stuart and Jill are such lovely people so kind. The house is beautiful so clean and has more than you'd expect it to have!
The bed is amazingly comfortable. And we loved having their dogs over to spend the morning with us.
The perfect getaway. Highly recommend!
Thank you Stuart and Jill. Hopefully see you again next year
