“If you want clean, contemporary and relaxing, close to seaside and walks this is for you.”
Reviewed October 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

What a gem of a one bed, hot-tub chill out relaxing stay. Everything you need and a breakfast hamper with plenty of tasty goodies. The homemade muesli and bread was really tasty. Joy was really pleasant and showed us around quickly on arrival. Finally, HOT-TUB is amazing to relax and unwind after a long day walking, all you need to bring is swimming costumes as all else is provided, robes, towels, footwear. A great place to unwind,we certainly did. Thank you Joy.

“The Retreat is a real treat”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent 3 wonderful nights at the Retreat. It was spotlessly clean and finished to a very high standard. Everything we could possibly need was provided. Kitchen very modern with plenty of crockery, pots and pans (not that we used them), foil, oil etc provided. Bathroom has lovely large shower and heated towel rail. Bed extremely comfortable and plenty of storage and TV in bedroom.
Breakfast hamper was exceptional especially Joys homemade muesli (thank you Joy) and was more than enough for our stay.
Lovely garden area with a fabulous hot tub. Something rather lovely about sitting in the hot tub with a glass (or 2!) of Prosecco, listening to the birds and watching a squirrel playing in the tree.
We ate at the Hunters Lodge Inn on 2 evenings which is less than a 5 minutes walk from the Retreat (strongly recommend booking in advance as we did as the place was packed even on the Sunday evening). Also got a taxi to River Cottage which cost £15 return.
Information sent out prior to arrival was extremely useful and Joy popped in on our first afternoon to make sure we'd settled in ok.
The Retreat is excellent value for money and we will definitely return next time we're visiting that end of the country.

Thank you so much for your lovely lines. I am thrilled to read that you had such a relaxing stay here at The Retreat with Hot Tub and Breakfast Basket.

You are so right - always a good idea to pre book the pub at the end of the road and any taxi in advance of your stay (many of our guests visit either River Cottage for an event dinner at weekends or the Hix Restaurant in Lyme Regis that Mark Hix runs).

Details are all on my home web site and sent with any booking.

Regards,


Joy

“Lovely relaxing break”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very welcoming host , Generous breakfast basket and beautifully equipped accommodation.
Hot tub was lovely and everything was well maintained and clean. Signs and instructions made everything simple. Location was slightly less rural than I had imagined from reading other reviews and there was quite a lot or road noise at busy times though this did not detract from our stay. A mirror on the end of the driveway would make exiting safer. All in all a great mini holiday. Thank you

Thank you for your review. Delighted you had a great mini holiday here in an official East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

I must point out that if guests don't turn the jets off in the hot tub after use then when it filters this can be mistaken for road noise which has happened before.

Fortunately most traffic departs Lyme Regis by early evening when there is a 4pm rush and as you said it did not detract from your stay - the Retreat is set well back from the road itself between fields and gardens.

Thank you for your review and hope to see you again one day.
