We felt like we had gone to a friends house for the weekend, Buff and Martin were such fantastic hosts. Breakfast was superb and the room was huge and beautiful. We did some brilliant bike rides and walks from the house and even had Martin on hand to fix a puncture- what a star. I'd happily go back again and again.

The title says it all, resulting in our very short stay being a delight. Buff was a lovely host who has the ability to make her guests feel both very welcomed and very 'at home'.
We loved the character of the house, the views of the lovely gardens and the huge bath as well as the fab English breakfast the following morning.
We would certianly book again.

Orchards Retreat is a wonderful ‘arts and crafts’ era house, full of character and set in a beautiful garden. I'd previously stayed there on my own and recently returned for a weekend with my husband and our small dog. Martin and Buff were wonderfully welcoming and Buff really went the extra mile in providing a delicious breakfast suitable for my special diet. We felt very much at home and came away feeling relaxed and refreshed. In fact we are planning another weekend visit next month. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying in the large and sunny en suite room (with bath). The bed was large and very comfortable. We were also offered use of a close by bathroom with shower.

As with other reviews, there's very little to 'moan' about here. If you're looking for a great short break venue, the owners have got it just right!. They're charming, friendly, professional and very attentive. Our family stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage, which was self-contained and ideal for what we wanted, allowing us to prepare our own meals as necessary and chill-out. Other members of our family stayed in the main house and 'raved' about the rooms and breakfasts! The decor throughout 'Orchards' provides a special kind of ambience, with various decorative 'touches' .... hence the 'quirkiness', but all in best possible taste! As someone already mentioned, don't expect 'perfection' with en-suites facilities, as large rambling properties such as this have their own special 'charm'. You can't go far wrong by staying here.

Room Tip: If you have children, then the COTTAGE is a good option.

Stayed at Orchard Retreat, as we were at a wedding in the area. The B&B is in a lovely location in the countryside. I totally agree with the last 5* review, including friendly owner, nice breakfast and very quirky house. I would say the house interior is rather rustic and oozes character. Will hope to stay again if we are in the area again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The en-suite room is very nice and spacious, and overlooks the quaint garden
