We stayed at The Retreat as a surprise min-moon after our wedding in Wingerworth.
The property has been lovingly renovated and beautifully decorated. Despite knowing the area well we could have been anywhere as we enjoyed the peace and relaxation the The Retreat offers. Apart from a gorgeous walk and trips to The Old Poets Corner, we didn't stray far. The kitchen has all the essential and while it's not equipped for entertaining, I don't see this being an issue.
The TVs are smart TVs so if you take a usb you can watch from that or record to it.
The bed was incredibly comfortable. Everywhere was impeccably clean. The books, games and DVDs were a lovely touch. As was the welcome provisions of milk, eggs and bread.
All in all an utterly relaxing mini break and one that we would very much like to repeat. Would highly recommend. Many thanks to Ian and Elaine.

“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was a short break which I booked for my partners 50th, the cottage itself was clean and tidy and fully equipped, and we were provided with milk, bread, eggs and butter which was a lovely touch by the owners.
The location and what the village offered was just what we needed, walking distance to 3 pubs which provide wonderful food and local ales.
There were lots of information on offer in the cottage regarding walks and places of interest.
We had a lovely short break which was made extra special by having beautiful weather.
Will like to visit again.

Stayed for 3 nights as our first anniversary and enjoyed it so much we are already planning to do the same next year as it's a fantastic blend of clean and modern living space in a beautiful location with great views and good pubs nearby.
The hosts are friendly and the attention to detail is very good so fully recommended.

“Excellent accommodation,with superb views, welcome pack,relaxation”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

this is our 3rd visit in less than a year, cottage still excellent in every way, homely warm and plenty of hot water. Toiletries and welcome pack on arrival and lovely hosts Ian and Elaine.
Lovely to relax and take in the views, had a lovely week of sunshine with plenty of walks from the door. "The Dead Poets" Public house great for food and also the Marsh Green Farm Shop for food both to eat and to buy, or just to relax with coffee. The Black Swan to sit and have a drink sat in the sunshine outside after a long walk. A must visit is the Tuck shop in the village. You will not be disappointed in staying at The Retreat this is a little gem! of a very high standard and lovely through and through - could quite easily live here.

This is my second stay to enable me to meet with family in the locality. A wonderful situation, fabulous bird watching from the lounge window and stunning accommodation.
