We stayed there last We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed for 2 nights and had dinner on the first evening. The dinner was fantastic and it had a very intimate feel. The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff was very friendly. It was so special that my boyfriend proposed to me there. Lovely stay! Thanks

Wow, just wow. I stayed here with a large group for one night, and couldn't have found a more special location for a party. Secluded, chic and exceptionally well appointed, this place is perfect for large groups or families. We had great fun exploring the property on arrival. Very convenient for London, with fantastic facilities nearby - but with such... More

My family stayed here for two nights and had an awesome time. The little village of Flore is a great place to visit and the Real Retreat is a beautiful house to stay in. We went swimming, took walks to the local farm that had baby lambs to pet and feed. We ate at the upscale local pubs with great... More

One of the best 2 night breaks we have been on. Just leave your stressful life in the car and walk into relaxation and calmness. The hotel is a haven where you can do as much or as little as you like. There are treatments that you can have for an extra costs or just swim in the perfectly heated... More

I would recommend everyone I know and people just looking for a fantastic weekend of pure relaxation. The service was brilliant, constant laughs and a real homely feel from all of the staff making you feel totally at home and at ease. The facilities were fantastic, with the pool being heated at a perfect temperature and being so beautifully light... More

I stayed here over the new year period and I have to say I thought the property was amazing. I'm hoping to go back at some point later in the year. Some of the highlights for me were the pool (which was heated perfectly), the bridal suite bedroom was out of this world, and it also games/party room with a... More

We stayed here over the weekend and were both so impressed with this beautiful property set in the heart of the countryside. The staff Hannah and Denis were both very helpful and attentive throughout the stay. Denis cooked us an excellent meal on the Friday night and there is a comprehensive alcohol selection. The pool is very impressive and private... More

Hi I spent two days there with the family at this quiet retreat. It is one hour drive from London and just off the M1 so very convenient. It wasn't the best organised place but the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The heated indoor pool was excellent and the rooms were very warm and cosy. The living room had... More
