The Rockhouse Retreat is a unique luxury cave retreat, hand sculpted from a Triassic sandstone escarpment near the Wyre Forest in rural Worcestershire.

Located only a mile from the nearest village, but feeling isolated in its woodland setting. Only birdsong for a soundtrack, very few vehicles going by on the track below - perhaps one car a day.
