From the owner

The Retreat received the prestigious TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and has over 100 5* excellent reviews making it the most reviewed property in Hereford and Worcester. It is a single apartment in a cottage above the totally private heated indoor swimming pool room giving it wonderful views across the 7 acres of garden and fields. You don't share the pool with anyone else and it is available for the whole of your stay exclusively for you. The Retreat comprises a luxurious double bedroom with en-suite shower featuring a king size bed and Chinese furniture. A proper fold-out double bed settee allows extra sleeping in the sitting area. Double doors and a Juliet balcony give views of the orchard and across the croquet lawn. The fully-equipped kitchen is tucked in the corner of the generous living area with flat screen TV, comfortable settees and a dining table. A wide double-glazed glass screen leads to an elevated paved balcony with outdoor seating and distant views to the church and historic Wolferlow Court.

The 9m heated indoor pool also has a Finnish sauna, wet room and table tennis table / gym. It is totally private and exclusive for The Retreat and accessible at all times. It is much appreciated by many of our guests either couples or young families.

The large gardens are open one day each year for the National Garden Scheme and include an orchard, wildflower meadow with ponds, herbaceous borders and distant views across neighbouring farmland. Well away from any busy roads the property of seven acres is quiet, peaceful and private. We have friendly horses and one sheep in the fields.

Attention to detail includes the provision of top quality bed linen, towels and luxury towelling robes. The Wifi connection provides excellent broadband reception. An extensive DVD collection is included for your entertainment.

The Retreat is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic and luxury getaway or to bring the baby / younger children and enjoy a family time together. If the party is a little larger it is sometimes possible to use double en-suite bedrooms in the main house on a sleeping-only basis at a separate charge - please enquire with booking.

Well behaved pets are accepted (subject to a small additional charge) but must be declared when booking.

Owner's reply:
This was an isolated review amongst a host of 5* reviews. The sauna unfortunately developed a fault and has now been replaced and is working fine. We do live in the country in a small rural hamlet so guests normally come to enjoy that .... as for the weather we have no control over that.
