What can I say Rubys Retreat was absolutely outstanding.A pure luxury treat for us all think it deserves 6 ****** very much highly recommended.

Reviewed by Candice, 30th August 2019

The cottage is very lovely, it is comfortable and the hosts are really helpful. There are some good family things to do and its pretty peaceful (but we were the only ones there!) We were left wine and cakes which was a nice touch. I wouldnt advise it for people who want to stay up late and some who go to bed early as the noise carries a lot, but weRead more would stay here again. Its very nicely put together and has lots of nice little touches in the upstairs rooms. Hide

Ruby's Retreat is a fantastic cottage, finished to a high standard but with a great homely feel, ideally suited for our group. The owners made us feel really welcome on arrival and gave great local information. Fangfoss is a lovely location with plenty to do in the area.
