Joy has pushed the boat out with this rental. The Retreat is so well appointed it is hard to see how it could be improved upon. Lounge and bedroom have lovely furnishings. Fittings in bathroom are very stylish, and shower has a gratifyingly high flow rate. But I reserve my most fulsome praise for the kitchen. Any and all accessories are there. The breakfast hamper is most imaginative and comprehensive. We loved the homemade bread, local eggs, Hedgehog corner brand preserves, and Joy's own muesli with a deliciously high proportion of fruit and nuts. We missed the hot tub by a week!

Liked best: Breakfast hamper
Liked least: Nothing! A bit closer to the other house than appeared from the website, but in fact was well secluded.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such lovely lines.
I do appreciate it when I know how busy your lives are.
It was very uplifting to meet you both and your wife's helpful comments about my future installation of the Hot Tubs (one each for both The Retreat and Acorns Garden Apartment here).
I do look forward to meeting you both again one day.

Best wishes,

Joy

“Outstanding accommodation in a peaceful setting”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent a fantastic few days here in this wonderful place, perfect for exploring the amazing Jurassic Coast. Joy has really made every effort to make your holiday run smoothly, from the clean, modern décor to the delicious breakfast basket, complete with home made bread, eggs, milk and a variety of cereals. She made us feel very welcome, greeting us with a friendly smile and showing us around, explaining everything we needed to know to enjoy our stay. Everything was perfect, from the very well appointed kitchen, the lovely bathroom, with a spacious shower and underfloor heating, not forgetting the very comfortable bed. A really beautiful place to stay in a really beautiful part of the country.

“Absolutely wonderful accommodation.”
Reviewed 16 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My friend and I recently stayed here for two nights and had a fabulous time. Joy is the perfect host; warm, welcoming and helpful while still being discreet and unobtrusive. The cottage is beautifully furnished and styled, and the bed was ridiculously comfortable. The breakfast Joy provided was delightful - freshly baked bread, home made jams, organic eggs, local Apple juice; it was all fantastic! I can not stress how delightful our stay was and I would unequivocally recommend this place to anyone. I wish we had stayed longer!!

Delighted that a wild and windy night found our Retreat comfy, warm and welcoming!

So glad you enjoyed your visit to nearby River Cottage HQ - there is just so much going on there these days I am amazed.

Very much hope to welcome you again!
