    Mr Brian Webb, Woking, Surrey
    "Our second visit to The Retreat in 3 years has not dimmed our opinion of the property, rather it has been enhanced by the care, detail and support the owners have for this house. The warmth, cosiness and general high standard of this property enables my wife and I to relax, enjoy the views and ensure we are refreshed at the end of our holiday. We hope to return."
    Mr Toogood, Chesterfield, Derbyshire
    "The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very well presented. The kitchen in particular was very well equipped. Plenty of unexpected extras made us feel really welcome."
