Overview

About the property

The Retreat has been lovingly renovated to create a 'home from home feeling'. The barn has its own secluded balcony overlooking a gently cascading stream. Set in a tranquil location, this is a perfect retreat for those wishing to reconnect to nature.

During your stay you are welcome to enjoy the owners surrounding 20 acres of ancient woodland, which leads down to the river in the steep valley below. Please note that suitable footwear is advisable as the paths are steep and can at times be wet and muddy.

The Retreat offers a spacious, light, open plan living/kitchen/dining area, with a large log burner, a generously proportioned bedroom with king size double bed, en-suite bathroom and access to the private balcony. A spiral staircase leads up to mezzanine which provides a cosy children's den, with two futon beds.

The Retreat is situated half a mile from the road, down a farm track that crosses our neighbours field. It is not suitable for vehicles with a low ground clearance (e.g Sports cars). Parking is available outside the property.

The owners and their young family live in the neighbouring farmhouse and are on hand should you need anything.

A perfect cozy retreat for a quiet break

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at The Retreat this week, capped off by some wonderful snowfall on Wednesday morning. The house is lovely, has been done out with everything you could need for a relaxing break, especially the log burner which came in very handy on the cold evenings.

If you are after somewhere quiet & off the beaten track, this place is just for you but be warned that it is down a narrow lane & track so access isn't for anyone who isn't very mobile. Despite that, it's wonderful & such a lovely place to stay.

Thank you for such a great little cottage & for giving us a truly memorable short break.

all you could want

  • 5 of 5

A lovely property. We live in a period cottage but this was very different and very bright and spacious. Lovely stove (although it took our wood burner knowledge to get lift off !!) Very well equipped. We would love to return and just regret that our typical weather meant we could not enjoy sitting out on the balcony over the stream.
