We enjoyed a quick winter break and we hope to return in the summer. Quiet and restful. The warm pool house was a welcome extra in the cold winter days.
What a lovely place, tranquil and peaceful. Stuart and Jill are fantastic hosts who have thought of everything, but leave you to have a private break with lots and lots of space. The cottage/Anex itself is clean, tidy and very cosy at night, great kitchen to cook in and a lovely new fresh on suite shower room.
The dining area is adequate and very intimate if you are looking for a romantic meal. The pool and sauna are amazing and the table tennis was a great laugh.
I stayed here for my birthday with my partner and we couldn't of picked a better location to relax in, will definitely be going back, lots of delis and butchers with produce sourced locally, great walks and fantastic views cannot fault it from the moment we pulled up to the sad moment when we had to pull away. 10/10 if I could rate it higher I would.
Great place to relax , had a great time .
Lovely surroundings in the countryside.
Kids loved the swimming pool
Stuart and Jill are lovely people and very understanding, happy to help in any way they can. The place was immaculate when we arrived. All facilities were on a good standard, we were very comfortable and had a lovely time.
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.
