Myself, husband, 4 children and Boris the dog, stayed for all of January. Some awful cold and windy weather during our stay but we were toasty and warm in Rats retreat. The cottage was spotlessly clean. It was ample size to fit us all in comfortably with enough utensils etc.
The wild life was an added bonus. There was a friendly peacock who knocked on the door for crushed cornflakes! The barn owl showed every night to fly over the lake. The foxes played on the lawn. Amazing.
We’ve already booked to return.
Looked for a place we could get our family together for a pre-Christmas get-together in Northamptonshire. We have a daughter in Northampton and brother in Towcester so Tove Valley and the Rats Retreat was an inspired find with accommodation for my wife and I our daughter and mother with our brother popping over for the day. Rats Retreat offers excellent accommodation with 3 bedrooms, one en suite and an open living area with full kitchen. Heating is inclusive and kept the property very warm. On request we were given the option of a small barbeque (out of season) and supplied with a bbq bag which we did not expect but was very welcome. Overall a very delightful stay, a lovely property which exceeded our expectations. Victoria was an excellent host and we could not have asked for more. Will return again when visiting the area in future and trying out another of the various cottages on site..
Was a ideal property to stay in Towcester near the race course for our nieces wedding and easy access to the M1 moter way and wonderfull country side to explore and walk
There were four of us from 3 years old to 86 and we all enjoyed it.
The accommodation was excellent. Clean, spacious and all you need.
The children's play area was excellent and very safe.
A fantastic girlie weekend - the 4 of us were celebrating a special birthday and have been friends for very many years. We had a fabulous time in this wonderful cottage. Would recommend to anyone. It was great thank you very much

Just returned from an amazing girlie 3 night stay at this amazing converted barn. The Rats Retreat is an amazing 3 bed, 2 bathroom 2 floor accommodation, which ticks every box. Very luxurious, bright, clean and modern with everything you need for a break away. Will definitely visit again
