Stayed @ Stag's Retreat: very high quality accommodation - every detail considered. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Easy arrival with clear instructions. Lovely touch with a 'welcome' bottle of wine and chocolates. Christmas decorations a great touch too.

Excellent property. Comfortable, spacious and clean. It has lovely views across the countryside and the outside area is a great place to sit on a warm evening. With plenty of things to see and do, it makes an ideal base. Nick went the extra mile to accommodate me and my partner, who has limited mobility. By installing some ramps, she had no problemRead mores accessing Stags Retreat. I would certainly recommend staying. Lois and Steve. Hide
