    Ruth's Retreat was a perfect get away for me and my two grown up children to have some catch up time. The added extras of wine, flowers, cereal and milk added to the homely atmosphere. The hot tub had fabulous views of the countryside and Ruth is a lovely host. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Amazing place. It has everything you could need to have a quiet, relaxing getaway. You couldnt ask for a better hostess. Ruth went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. Beautiful views and a hot tub to die for. The lodge has a lovely walk in wet room and such a homely feel. We didnt want to leave. And will definitely be returning.

    Loved every minute of being at Ruth’s retreat! Lodge is amazing and a lot bigger than it looks in the pictures. Fully equipped with everything you need (even little extras thought of by Ruth). Hot tub was amazing, just what we needed!! Perfect location if you’re looking for a peaceful location, short drive to the local towns. Ruth was a great host and we can’t wait to attend again soon!
