    It was a lovely place to get away from it all. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and the wild life, the fishing was good too. The kitchen facilities got a bit of getting use to but we did and everything was fine.

    Perfection! I had a happy husband with all the fishing, the walks were fantastic, the sun shone every day, and for the kind of chilled out break that we wanted it was just perfect. The owners Tess and Gary were very friendly and helpful and didn't mind us barbequing round the fishing lakes.

    Simply wonderful. A beautiful place to relax and enjoy mother nature at her finest. Couldn't have chosen a more wonderful place to stay. The owners very friendly and helpful. Most definitely going back.

    The only reason I gave the location a 9 out of 10 is because you can hear the road traffic when outside on the decking area but not inside. This did not detract from our enjoyment of The Retreat in any way but others should be made aware. We hope to return to The Retreat later this year as the position is ideal for visiting the coast and country walks. Excellent. Thank you

    Loved the Retreat, the accommodation was spotlessly clean. Lovely peaceful place enjoyed by both of us and our dog... My husband enjoyed the fishing.

    although we enjoyed our stay at the retreat it was our second stay and liked it enough to return we still find the kitchen facilities inadequate, we just managed , there is a portable double hob but only one ring working which I guess matches as there is only one saucepan, knives were blunt ,no oven only a combo microwave oven ,if you can manage as we did great . The position & outlook are lovely and relaxing my husband enjoyed the fishing , we would return.

    Lovely for a short break away. Very central to a lot of places. Only scored a 8 for comfort due to the bed being very uncomfortable. But the rest of the retreat I could not fault.
