We stayed here for a night on the Saturday of valentines weekend. We were in the 'Pheasants Retreat' suite. I looked a lot of reviews of other places before finally settling with pheasant suites. I'm so glad I did! I was quite overwhelmed with how nice the whole place was decorated! We especially like all the little details. It was a lovely secluded retreat. Highly recommended!

These guests stayed in the Retreat and I am delighted that our reviews fulfilled their expectations.
We do our utmost to make all our Suites as romantic and special as possible, as we understand how important this is. The photographs are lovely and show some of the little details that we hope turn a night away into a memorable occasion.

This gentleman stayed in the Lodge and it is always good to know that our guests feel they are receiving value for their money. Our cakes seem to getting rather a lot of compliments lately, which is always appreciated.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the retreat and I am already looking at booking to go back!

From the moment we booked until the time we left Lynda could not have been more helpful and charming.

The pictures of the retreat really don't do it justice in my opinion. It exceeded our expectations...and they were already very high! It is so spacious and light and with everything you could need to enjoy your stay. The fixtures and fittings are all of such a high standard and the thought and care that has been put into the retreat shows in every perfect little detail.

The breakfasts were the best we have ever had...and we have had a fair few! Lynda's homemade cakes are also delicious...Delia could pick up a few tips :0) The fact that all this amazing food is delivered to you through what we have christened 'the narnia wardrobe' ( because it's magical ) just adds to the whole experience.

Accommodation etc aside what we really loved was the level of privacy this place afforded us. We didn't see a soul until just as we were leaving. The retreat really does allow you to be in your own little bubble of peaceful bliss!

We did venture out once during our stay to the local Indian takeaway in Elmstead Market which we would recommend.

Book a stay at the Pheasant Suites...I promise you that you will not regret it :0)

We are absolutely delighted to receive such an amazing review. It is so important to us that our website and reviews live up to the high expectations of our guests. We love the "Narnia wardrobe comment" and many of our guests tell us that they wish they had one at home. I think the Aga and our own eggs should take some of the credit for our breakfasts and cakes, as they always seem to have more flavour.

Had a one night escape from our busy lives. We stayed in the lovely retreat. Finding somewhere so close to home with such high standards has proved difficult untill now!! Fantastic all round. Cosy on a stormy night however bad the weather! Yet look forward to returning in the spring/summer to enjoy the lovely breakfast outside.

We are finding that more and more of our guests, who live locally, are now regulars as they do not wish to drive long distances to stay away for one night. The Retreat is ideal as once you enter your own private garden you have complete privacy and solitude and could be anywhere in England.

What a wonderful change to staying in business style hotels, this is a true home from home. The cleanest hotel I've stayed at in England! 5 star service and excellent amenities...also a great tip to go to the local Indian restaurant 'Spice' which was superb!

We are finding more and more business people are chosing to stay with us, as the Lodge really has a homely atmosphere. If you wish to watch TV the settee is large enough to stretch out on, with a huge footstool and if you need to work the breakfast table is a sensible size. It is extremely spacious, which has the advantage of ensuring that you do not feel you are stuck in a bedroom for the evening.
