Hi! Just wanted to say Wendy and I hope you can work your way around the new look site, including its new booking function. It will probably have a few teething problems and I’m keen to get your thoughts so do email us on
If you’re not sure which room to book, just click on the ‘no preference’ option – we will allocate it before you arrive.
If you’d like to see the most up to date reviews, do go here to our Facebook page, where many returning guests describe their experience since we took over in January. Without fail, they all love it and appreciate the small improvements we have made, like new bath/shower upstairs, new mattresses, duvets and pillows, new woodburner, overhaul of the heating system so it’s warmer now, new look courtyard and back garden, a little home gym out in the new studio where there’s a big telly and Sky TV if you simply HAVE to watch that latest episode of something or other. Oh and Daisy and Gracie the resident labradors…
In May, Retreats for You also saw the last of the major revamps, with a new look kitchen – we are very pleased with it and hope you will be too. The character-filled original floor and vaulted roof remain, as does the cosy Rayburn which you can come sit near if you fancy a coffee and a chat during your break from writing.
Finally, the bathrooms are full of bubbles and lotions and potions which you are welcome to use, featuring brands such as Elemis, Decleor, Molton Brown, SBC, Philip Kingsley and Liz Earle and more. Dressing gowns, towels, slippers, hairdryers and tea/coffee in rooms are all still available, with the addition of a wide range of herbal tea sachets on the landing. And hopefully you can find a themed week or workshop to your liking on our events page, otherwise just pick a Monday to Friday stay during the summer and ping us a request to book it! Whilst we’re not ideal for disabled access, we do occasionally take dogs in the downstairs bedroom (supplement applies, selected dates – do ask.)
Any questions in advance of booking, do let us know – but do book asap as summer 2017 is looking busy already with several weeks completely booked!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
