“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Me my partner and our two year old went away for our fifth year anniversary. My partner works really hard and this was the perfect relaxation for him. The swimming pool and sauna was amazing and purely for our use during our stay. Stuart and Jill are such lovely people so kind. The house is beautiful so clean and has more than you'd expect it to have!
The bed is amazingly comfortable. And we loved having their dogs over to spend the morning with us.
The perfect getaway. Highly recommend!

Thank you Stuart and Jill. Hopefully see you again next year

“Fab time had by all”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My husband, our two young sons and I stayed at the Retreat for a weekend in October 2016. The property is in a very rural setting, so a car is vital. The accommodation was very clean, with everything provided that we needed for our stay. The highlight for us was most definitely the swimming pool and sauna, which we used in the morning and again in the evening! Our boys, who are aged 3 and 7 absolutely loved it - as did my husband and I. We had a very relaxing break and will definitely return again. Thank you!

“Great pool, great views, great owners”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The Retreat lived up to the details posted and then some - the pool and sauna were fantastic, and the owners were every so welcoming, friendly and helpful. It felt like the middle of nowhere, but yet only a short drive to Worcester or Hereford and plenty of nearby pubs.
We were only here for a few nights but just in that space we felt as refreshed as if we'd had a couple of weeks away.
The only thing worrying me about giving a good review it that it might be harder for us to book to go back again!

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed for three nights in the aptly named Retreat to get away from it all and relax. It had everything that we could have wished for. Large comfy couches, comfortable, soft bed, everything you need in the kitchen and a lovely location, not to mention the exclusive use of the pool and sauna.
The pool is warm, none of the shuddering when you get in. It was clean with some pool toys too (we're 40 but still want to have fun!). If the weather is nice there's an outdoor seating area.
It's a very remote location, 8 miles to the nearest shop so take snacks with you. Because it's in the middle of nowhere it's very quiet and the night sky is amazing.
There's a good selection of DVD's, books and games to play.
The shower was good too (I know that matters to a lot of people!).
It's attached to the main house but you still have complete privacy although Stuart was always there if we needed anything, not that we did, it was so well equipped.
Stuart even offered us the pick of the fruit trees and vegetable gardens!
Note that there isn't any phone coverage so no calls or texts but the wi-fi is excellent so you can keep up (if you wish) with people online.
There are steps up to the apartment so not suitable for people with disabilities.
To find this little gem that allowed us to take our dog too was just brilliant.
We'll certainly be back!
