“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2010

This is the perfect place to forget about about everyday life and to relax. The people that own this B and B are so accomodating and did everything they could to ensure our 2 year old was well entertained, including offering to borrow dvds for him. The room itself is very modern with a tv and dvd player. The room is cleaned every day for you and sweets, biscuits, fresh fruit and beverages are provided along with fluffy dressing gowns which are perfect for relaxing beside the log fire with. The breakfast in the morning is fab, cooked fresh to suit you, with everything provided you could possibly want. The retreat itself is set in the country with beautiful views and only a 3 minute drive from the beach. This is like no other B and B we have stayed in, it truly is a home away from home and we can't wait to return!

I was pleasantly surprised by the genuine beauty of the countryside around Greyabbey. Me and three friends had heard about Strangford Lough and the cycling routes around the area, however, the unspoilt nature reserve itself, its wildlife, and the scenery excelled our best expectations. We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast called the Retreat on the Blackabbey Road and all I can say about that place is it has been the best B+B that any of us have stayed in and between us we have stayed in a great many A++++++ ( great comfort, great couple, great grub, great therapys, great laugh) It also provided our aching limbs , with massage therapy and reflexolgy .The cycling routes here are top notch, safe and pleasant with lots of choices for all abilities. The Abbey itself was about a mile from where we stayed and certainly one of the most mystical and powerful spots in the North of Ireland. We brought back some of the best photographs taken this year and have been left wondering how this village and the surrounding area has not been flocked with tourists, our most delightful and most comfortable stay in Northern Ireland yet and we have already made a return booking for a full week already for September. For Nature Lovers ,Photographers and Cyclists like ourselves this is a truly unspoilt area that we already looking forward to return!
