Overview

About the property

Apartment sleeps up to four persons (two doubles)

The Retreat is the award winning and recently completed luxury holiday apartment adjoining Wolferlow House, the former rectory, set in beautiful scenery on the Herefordshire / Worcestershire border.

The highlight is the exclusive use of a totally private 9m indoor heated swimming pool and a Finnish sauna - entirely to yourselves.

The Retreat comprises a luxurious double bedroom with en-suite shower featuring a king size bed and Chinese furniture. A proper fold-out double bed settee allows extra sleeping in the sitting area. Double doors and a Juliet balcony give views across the croquet lawn. The fully equipped kitchen is tucked in the corner of the generous living area with flat screen TV, comfortable chairs and a dining table. A wide double-glazed glass screen leads to an elevated paved balcony with outdoor seating and distant views over farmland to the church and Wolferlow Court.

The large gardens are open each year for the National Garden Scheme (17 June 2017) and include an orchard, wildflower meadow with ponds, herbaceous borders and distant views across farmland.

Well away from any busy roads the seven acre property is quiet, peaceful and private.

Attention to detail includes the provision of top quality bed linen, towels and luxury towelling robes.

The Retreat is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic and luxury getaway or to bring the baby / younger children and enjoy a family time together.

Notes:
The highlight is the exclusive use of a 9m indoor heated swimming pool and Finnish sauna with fitness area and table tennis table. A wet room leads off. From the pool large double doors lead to the garden terrace with loungers, table and sun umbrella. A flight of 15 stone steps with handrail provide access to The Retreat so it is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. The garden is open once a year (year off in 2016) for the National Garden Scheme Yellow Book. Our daughter, Laura, a professional caterer provides a superb supper menu that is available on 24 hours notice - menu provided at time of booking. Highly recommended by our guests.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic relaxing break with everything you could dream of to make it special including a bottle of red on arrival! Private pool, wildlife and walks galore and dark skies for star gazing like you wouldn't believe.

Booking to return again very soon. Thank you Stuart and Jill.

We had a great stay in Wolverlow and particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and sauna.

Stuart and Jill were very helpful and their garden was a joy.

A relaxing retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for a relaxing romantic long weekend. Feels like you're in the middle of nowhere (which you kind of are). Having the pool to yourself is a massive bonus & plenty to keep yourselves amused if weather not too good - table tennis, sauna, good selection of dvds etc. Great to be able to take the dog & good walks from the door. We self catered as didn't want to drive anywhere (although there are catering options) & found this worked well as made the most of the pool without having to worry about getting ready to go out. Although sleeps 4 would be a bit of a squeeze but perfect for 2. Overall a really good stay & definitely hoping to go back.
