“Very relaxing escape”

I stayed here for two nights with my sister at the beginning of June. Our high hopes of the apartment were definitely met and it was actually even nicer than the impression we got from the photos. The apartment was clean and well equipped and the floor to ceiling windows on one side made it lovely and light with a great view but with no one overlooking that side of the apartment it still felt private. The en suite shower room had a great shower, a big shower head and good water pressure, important if you're washing your hair a lot after swimming!
The swimming pool really made it for us. I find public swimming pools really cold and have to speed up and down the lanes to stop my lips going purple but I found the pool was a really nice temperature so you could happily swim at a leisurely pace or just sit and chat. We also enjoyed the sauna, getting back in the pool afterwards was nice and invigorating after long walks in the countryside.
The amazing gardens were lovely to walk around and just sit and relax in and the owners' dog was very friendly, but well behaved.
Two nights really wasn't long enough so we're planning another visit later in the year. The local area is lovely and there are lots of local events going on.
We would definitely recommend it, the owners were really friendly and helpful and it's one of the nicest places we've stayed.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed May 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed here after reading the reviews, was expecting high standard and we were not disappointed. Booked last minute (night before) stuart was extremely efficient with responding and organising everything for us. We came fairly late - sorry stuart for making you stay up. Not once did he complain but kindly showed us the accommodation and swimming pool. We enjoyed two lovely days here, everything was to a good standard, nearest shops are around 15 mins away. Will definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to all my friends and family. Thank You and hopefully see you again :-)

“Fabulous property, fabulous leisure facility, wonderful owners.”

We have just returned from a weekend at The Retreat. It's a lovely place set in beautiful countryside. The pool and facilities are wonderful and the owners who live on site (next door) are extremely helpful.
