My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights at the retreat. The entire trip was great. We were really impressed with the treatments and the therapists were exceptionally skilled. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and have already booked to return!

I booked The Retreat East for a 2 night break for my wife and i after reading the reviews, so glad we came we had the Little Hive Barn it was not very big but there was every thing we needed and spotlessly clean. We had breakfast lunch and dinner here and the food was delicious and all the staff were fabulous we loved it so much that we rebooked as soon as we got home.

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights at the lovely Cow House. It was honestly everything we wanted and more. Staff were so friendly and accommodating with any request. The food was first class ! The surrounding areas were lush and had so much to offer/explore. We also booked massages and they too were one of the best we’ve ever had!! The bath was to die for in our room! We have already booked to come again later this year, when hopefully everything would have opened up more, due to Covid! Recommending Retreat East to all our family and friends :)

We had a lovely few nights in The Den, a small barn with four poster bed, kitchen and living room. The weather was poor but we had delicious food & drink delivered to our barn which was wonderful. The hot tub was great and we would definitely stay again!

Our second time staying with Retreat East and it was fantastic again. The barns are lovely with plenty of outdoor space and staff are very attentive without being over bearing. We had a delicious dinner with cocktails and had great service from our waitress (wish we’d got her name!). We also had a lovely breakfast the next day. One of our favourite things about Retreat East is that it is truly dog friendly and our dog loved his stay. So many nice walks in the immediate area and not too far from some great dog friendly beaches! All in all, a great stay and we will be returning again soon!
