“Perfect peaceful country retreat”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We booked the Retreat on the strength of the good reviews and the fact that we'd have our own private pool and sauna - and we weren't disappointed!

We arrived to a warm welcome from Stuart the owner along with a bottle of wine and a delicious homemade cake. The views out of the bedroom and living area are lovely, green and pleasant. We were told the bed was comfy - an understatement! I likened it to lying on a giant marshmallow but Laura thought this was a bit OTT.

We decided to not go out walking although I have no doubt it's a lovely area to explore. We instead spent the time in the pool area. The pool was lovely and warm and a great size. There is also a table tennis table which got some good use. It was fantastic to have this and the sauna all to ourselves.

Overall we had a peaceful relaxing weekend which is exactly what we both needed with how work has been. We've already discussed going back so can't praise higher than that! Thanks Stuart and Jill for your fantastic accommodation

“The Retreat lives up to it name in every conceivable way - the perfect place to stay!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The location is superb - surrounded by beautiful countryside which provides a tranquil setting undisturbed by the noise and trappings of everyday life. The apartment is well furnished and equipped with everything you could need. The private swimming pool and Sauna is very well maintained and a joy to use. I would highly recommend The Retreat to anyone looking for luxury accommodation + private / exclusive use of an indoor pool situated in a beautiful location. Stuart and Jill really know how to make their guests feel welcome and are providing a top notch service with the added bonus of a ala-carte in-house dining experience if required.

“Amazing. Will definitely be returning!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This trip was organised rather last minute by myself as I felt that we needed a trip away. We stayed for 3 days (2 nights) at the beginning of January. When I found this apartment, I was shocked at the price. It looked too good to be true. So I made sure that this was the place we'd be staying! On arrival, we were welcomed and shown around and then left to settle into this amazing apartment. The apartment itself was beautifully arranged and designed to create a really isolated romantic ambience. The views also topped this off! There were also no complaints to be had about the facilities either as all kitchen appliances were working perfectly and the pool and sauna were truly perfect for such a trip, considering the private use! Overall, it really felt more like a holiday than a trip! Also, for the money that we paid, it was great value and i'll be sure to definitely return again in the Summer!
