Double doors and a Juliet balcony give views of the orchard and across the croquet lawn. The fully-equipped kitchen is tucked in the corner of the generous living area with flat screen TV, comfortable settees and a dining table. A wide double-glazed glass screen leads to an elevated paved balcony with outdoor seating and distant views to the church and historic Wolferlow Court. The 9m heated indoor pool also has a Finnish sauna, wet room and table tennis table / gym. It is totally private and exclusive for The Retreat and accessible at all times. It is much appreciated by many of our guests either couples or young families. The large gardens are open one day each year for the National Garden Scheme and include an orchard, wildflower meadow with ponds, herbaceous borders and distant views across neighbouring farmland. Well away from any busy roads the property of seven acres is quiet, peaceful and private. We have friendly horses and one sheep in the fields. Attention to detail includes the provision of top quality bed linen, towels and luxury towelling robes. The Wifi connection provides excellent broadband reception. An extensive DVD collection is included for your entertainment. The Retreat is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic and luxury getaway or to bring the baby / younger children and enjoy a family time together. If the party is a little larger it is sometimes possible to use double en-suite bedrooms in the main house on a sleeping-only basis at a separate charge - please enquire with booking. Well behaved pets are accepted (subject to a small additional charge) but must be declared when booking. More

About the neighbourhood
Local country pubs and restaurants serve great locally sourced food and drinks. Upper Sapey Golf Course (27 holes) is at the end of our lane, a three day event course even closer, a local gym, horse riding school and fishing nearby, Shelsley Walsh hillclimb (the oldest motor racing event in the world) two villages away and the Worcestershire Way (36 miles) is on the doorstep. Children may like West Midlands Safari Park, Severn Valley Steam Railway or Ralph Court Gardens. English Heritage look after Witley Court (7 miles), the remains of a vast and rambling palatial mansion with its magnificent grounds and restored fountains. Next door is an amazing Italianate baroque church and its tearooms. We also have two friendly horses and one sheep.
Getting around
Getting around is by car, walking or on your bike. Lots of lovely walks and some significant hills for those that want a challenge on the bike.
