A beautiful, peaceful location.
We had a lovely week at the Woodland Retreat. The quiet location was perfect for us, complete with friendly mallard ducks. The Retreat had everything we needed and our hosts, Suzanne and Danny were very friendly and attentive. Any small niggles, like needing a new battery for the remote, were immediately dealt with. For us it was an excellent base for exploring the Malverns and a number of National Trust and English Heritage sites - as well as Slimbridge. We hope to return soon!

Cozy cabin set in charming woodland setting
Located close to Ledbury this woodland cabin made an ideal location for hill walking in the Malverns. Despite unseasonal cold weather, the cozy accommodation and woodland wildlife made this an ideal base for our holiday. The owners, Danny and Suzanne, were friendly and responsive hosts and we had a very enjoyable and relaxing week away in a pretty location.

Nowhere better if you’re looking for ‘perfect’......
Ideal location if you love wildlife and the outdoors. Peaceful, beautiful, wonderful hosts in Suzanne and Danny, not to mention Marty & Miriam, the 🦆’s that kept me company during my week-long stay. If you love walking, there is no better place to be; if you’re into National Trust properties, there are plenty to choose from. I couldn’t fault the Woodland Retreat and would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for tranquility. Thank you Suzanne and Danny for welcoming me to your home.

Here the once, you'll want to return
Staying at Suzanne and Danny's is a real treat. The hosts are so friendly, thoughtful and trusting. Theirs is a super spot close to the charming town of Ledbury and the lodge we stayed in (twice now) is comfortable, has all the necessities, and being set within a lightly wooded area is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. Despite the occasional rumble of a passing train or a distant motorbike these are hardly noticed after a short while.

Woodland Retreat is aptly named!!
You cannot help but relax in these beautiful surroundings! Everything was spot on. We felt like we were in the middle of the woods and could completely switch off from the normal hurly-burly of daily life for a few days (with the lovely hosts, Suzanne and Danny, always on hand if needed). Beautiful walks to the Deer Park. Lovely local places to visit; our favourite being Symonds Yat. Suzanne and Danny definitely go above and beyond; letting us charge our electric car there and also finding and returning my engagement ring, which I carelessly left on a shelf. I couldn't fault this place. We have had quite a few weekends away this year, some quite expensive, but this is by far the best. Well done Suzanne and Danny. Hope to visit again soon. A real retreat!
