My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in January in the Garden Retreat of the Birks River House and absolutely loved our time there. The retreat was enormous with a stunning large bedroom with ensuite, huge living area with great couch and big screen tv (perfect for stretching out and watching the tennis!) and a great kitchen with everything you could ask for in it. The surrounding grounds and swimming pool were fantastic and also very private which meant we could relax by the pool all afternoon with a good book and a few drinks which is exactly what we were after! Wendy was an extremely helpful host who made sure we could settle in immediately with an extremely thoughtful basket of provisions left for us in the kitchen (breakfast items, lovely wine & port, crusty bread, fruit and some great nibbles). She has also done a great job with the interior design of the retreat with everything feeling very luxurious, whilst also practical and relaxed at the same time! Nothing more to say except we will be back for sure!
