“A spa under the stars”
Reviewed 30 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A well needed break was met with a well suited retreat. Judy greeted us and gave us enough information to make our stay comfortable and enough privacy to feel like we were in the countryside all on our own!
The absolute highlight of the stay was sitting in the toastie spa late in the evening watching all the stars and listening to the sounds of countryside....a totally brilliant way to wind down before settling into a comfy bed!
Judy & David were great hosts. I hope to go back some day soon and see their olive farm booming with more beautiful products and olives.

Hello Cassandra, thank you for your kind comments. The spa has only recently been installed and it was great that you were able enjoy it and watch the stars. That's exactly why we installed it. It is always good to get feedback and we are pleased that you found everything to be OK. We look forward to seeing you again. Regards Judy

“Blue Shed Retreat is a lovely, well appointed place off the beaten track.”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in the Blue Shed Retreat. From the well stocked kitchen, especially the local bacon and fresh farm eggs, to the Olive products in the bathroom that were just divine, every need was catered for in this lovely retreat. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone looking to experience that country lifestyle in well appointed comfortable accommodation, especially the bed. The hosts are very welcoming and happy to accommodate your every need. We will certainly be returning again.

“Cozy and comfortable getaway for two.”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

On arrival we were greeted warmly by Judy and David who helped to ensure we had a great weekend. The accommodation is roomy and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen. The breakfast hamper was generous, with farm fresh eggs, fruit and locally produced bacon. A lot of attention has been paid to detail and Judy has given a lot of thought to what guests want and need for a comfortable stay. The accommodation is on a working olive farm, with nice views over the orchard. In all, this is a great spot for a secluded getaway for a couple and we will happily return.

“Fantastic getaway accommodation ”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a wonderful get away spot and superb accommodation. Judy was a delightful host, providing an abundant breakfast basket, caring gifts and even a birthday present, so kind! The fire was going when we arrived on a wet day and the room was so warm and welcoming. It had all the caring touches to add that bit of luxury! We can't recommend it enough and will be back again for sure. Thank you Judy!!!
