Such a wonderful location to celebrate a Birthday breakfast. Delicious choices of food and drink surrounded by an exquisite country atmosphere, a roaring fire, and a festive Christmas tree glowing. We were not rushed to move on and where able to stay and chat for as long as we wished. A glorious environment for dining and chatting. Highly recommend and we'll definitely visit again soon! A million thanks. :)

Absolutely loved our stay. They only small thing we would say is that the little hive needs a dressing table and a kettle. But we will definitely come again.

It was lovely to have a breakfast out with my daughters and visit Retreat East for the first time. It was unfortunate that our food didn't come to the table at the same time and one of my daughters had pratically finished her breakfast before we had ours served. Our waitress did apologise, on behalf of the kitchen, and the overall service was very good. Look forward to our next visit! Helen Morris

A retreat is something we felt we had definitely had. Very relaxing. Loved the individual lodges and the barn where we ate. Five stars all round from us.

We had a really wonderful meal. The building itself was beautiful, as was the interior design. The staff were all first class and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be returning and are hoping to stay next time.
