Absolutely Fabulous

Absolutely fabulous. We stayed in a framed tent which was beautifully kitted out with 2 double beds, sofas, adjustable lighting, fully carpeted, fresh fruit, power packs for phones, eye masks, ear plugs….and much more! The staff were very welcoming even when we turned up after midnight, offering champagne and nibbles . The catering staff, bar staff and the guys that ferried us to and from the festival every morning and collected us every evening were great! Well done Barney and team. We will definitely be back in 2019!!!!!” Victoria Birchett Retreat Guest 2017

Perfect Location, Really Friendly Staff

Really great stay at The Retreat. Bell tent was spacious and comfortable but it was all the extras that made it such a good experience. Perfect location, really friendly staff who went the extra mile to make you feel very welcome, great breakfast spread in the dining room and lovely bar area. Really appreciated the hot showers and hairdryers/straighteners etc. Well done team – will definitely recommend and hopefully be back in the future.” Ruth Bowland Retreat Guest 2017

Loved, Loved, Loved Staying at The Retreat!!!

Loved, Loved, Loved staying at The Retreat!!! The staff couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcomed and were so helpful and accommodating when dealing with any request that we had. Accommodation facilities were spot on and the golf buggy transport was a fab addition. Staying here enhanced our whole experience, and it certainly lived up to its name.” Laura Corbet Retreat Guest 2017
