“"A gorgeous piece of eclectic paradise"”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

This has to be the most amazing place to stay. not only is the place beautifully decorated, it is warm & inviting. Hosts Peter & Sandy are so creative not only with the delicious food Sandy cooks, but their garden, the rooms and all the small touches around the place.
We have now been twice and they feel like old friends..a most relaxing place to stay and enjoy all the beautiful surroundings...if ever you are going to Tamworth there is definitely no other place to stay and visit this unique gorgeous B & B

Room Tip: All the rooms are great....

It's difficult to write a review of this establishment - you need to visit and form your own opinion.
We went with a dear friend who occupied the Moroccan suite while we had the Japanese suite. I can't imagine the amount of thought and work Peter and Sandy have put into the suites including the themed costumes in each room , never mind the common areas and gardens. (Not that there is anything common in the " common " areas.)
Wherever you look there is something different and unusual to take your eye whether it be " ruins ", metal sheep or cement mushrooms etc in the gardens or quirky decorations throughout the place.
The gardens themselves are worth a visit and provide vegetables and herbs for the kitchen.
For dinner we had a very nice shared tasting plate accompanied by excellent wines, while the herb pancakes at breakfast were better than you will get in most restaurants.
I can't think of a better place to stay if you just want to get away for a few days and where you can cut yourself off from the rest of the world and just veg out.

Room Tip: Just decide on which themed room would suit you - the dungeon could be fun.

We spent three wonderful days here. We travel the world and love our food, and we can honestly say we haven't eaten better food anywhere. The freshness of the produce (much of it from the garden) is matched by Sandy's wonderful inventiveness to create some of the most enjoyable meals we have had in years.

Peter and Sandy were the perfect hosts - nothing was too much trouble. We loved our stay in the Moroccan room - very comfortable and well appointed, yet with just that little bit of quirkiness that makes a trip away so much more fun.

We drove 8 hours to get the the Retreat, and we will be looking for an excuse to do it again. It is one of our favourite "getaways" in a very long time. We could not recommend it highly enough to our friends and family.

Phil and I would like to thank Peter and Sandy for having us at your wonderful retreat as part of our honeymoon the Dungeon suited us. The food was amazing and we really felt like we were at home. We have shown everyone the photos and they have commented on how beautiful The Retreat is.
