So aptly named, it says it all. No matter what your troubles may be, this is the place to forget them. Such is the friendly welcolme from Bill and Barbara, the cosy fire as you enter the room and the relaxed atmosphere this accommodation offers, troubles or not, you cannot help but drift into relaxation and dreams. Thank you both for making my visit so enjoyable and in the words of the famous. "I'll be back".

I'm not one to usually leave feedback but in this case an exception HAS to be made.
The expression B&B does not do the experience of 'The Retreat' justice. From the moment that you arrive the hospitality from Bill and Barbara is aimed at making your stay a memorable one, and you will want to go back. Whether it be a quiet relaxing time or a more up beat time with a little music, then it is all possible and you will not find fault with any aspect of a stay here, the food, accomodation, location, etc. etc. all add up to great place to stay which I unreservedly recommend and as the title says.......Look No Further

Really delighted with our stay with Bill and Barbara.
We arrived on the day that Bill received his new sound system.
He even sang some Garth Brooks for us.
It was really a great experience, what B&B should be all about,

What a welcome we received from Barbara &Bill. They made us feel so comfortable,nothing was too much for them. Excellent accommodation,very clean & cosy. The entertainment from Bill was a surprise and really made our stay. We just want to go back, we feel we made friends and would highly recommend this B&B. Vi Sharon & Joanne. Bangor.

Our second stay at the "Relaxing Retreat" .. forget traditional B&B accomodation, At Barbara & Bills you receive 4 star attention from the time you arrive until you sadly have to leave. All the rooms are well appointed, spacious, immaculatly decorated and furnished in a style that makes a statement .. "You will relax and enjoy your stay with us". Bill's splendid breakfast meal certainly set us up for the day, a much welcomed choice of food, cooked to perfection whilst we chatted, nothing was ever too much trouble.Lot's to do, lot's to see when you go out exploring, be it walking by the sea at Portaferry, shops and harbour at Bangor or a lovely drive around the Lough road to Belfast. Returning back in the evening you are met by the welcoming wood burning stove in the hallway as it greets you with its warmth and flickering flames. Then being able to share our wonderful days events with our hosts over a glass of wine proved to be so comforting. Then it's time for my wife to enjoy one of Barbara' relaxation treatments, it was without doubt worth every penny, it felt truly amazing and would truly recommend the experience as a worthwhile pampering. Barbara and Bill always have time for you whatever the time of day, always providing a genuine feeling of real hospitality found no where else in our countless travels around the globe. We will return yet again next year, make sure you do too ...

Room Tip: All rooms provide a quiet relaxing stay

Everything about The Retreat is just perfect. From the moment we arrived Bill and Barbara made us feel so welcome and relaxed. Our room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean with lovely little touches - chocolates in the room, herbal teas and lovely fluffy bathrobes. Our break began as soon as we stepped through the front door and saw the fire burning and were handed a cup of tea. Bill and Barbara were happy to give us our own space or to keep us company and we really felt we'd known them for years and ended up chatting the night away and even having a bit of a sing song! The next morning was equally relaxed - so much so that I appeared in one of the fluffy robes and Barbara got me a rug to snuggle up in!!!! After one of Bill's yummy breakfasts we had a lovely walk on the beach before - reluctantly - packing up to go. I would recommend The Retreat to anyone - whether its for a romantic break or a girlie weekend with Barbara's treatments followed by a glass of wine by the fire. Greyabbey is a beautiful village - the ruins of the abbey are just beautiful and its easy to pass an afternoon wandering the antique shops. What makes The Retreat really special though are the hosts - I can't wait to go back! Visit The Retreat - you won't be let down!!! :-)

I had high hopes of my three night relaxation break at The Retreat, and Bill & Barbara managed to exceed them! It was a wonderful experience, with spotless, comfortable accommodation, wonderful treatments, great food, and all the thoughtful little extras that make a stay so special...and possibly the friendliest hosts you will ever encounter!
