  • "Beautifully maintained and modern apartment."

    The bed is super comfy! Also the host is lovely and helpful. It is a great spot to base yourself to explore that corner of the world and there are lovely places around and about. However there is little that can be reached on foot (the flip side being it is good for country rambles, especially with a dog). Because it is a little way out, I agree with others that ask for more food storage space in the kitchen, but I rearranged a little and coped. All in all, heartily recommend Woodstock Retreat.

  • "Spent a lovely week in this comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage."

    Lots of places nearby to visit and we had lovely weather. Met the owner Debbie who was very generous and lovely. Will definitely book again if we are in the area again.

  • "A lovely little property, perfect for 1 or 2 people and a dog."

    In a very peaceful location but within easy reach of a myriad of places to visit. The owner Debbie is very friendly and very helpful, with some great advice on places to visit and walks in the immediate vicinity of the cottage. The only slight negative is the lack of a storage cupboard in the kitchen but that is only a very minor thing. We stayed for 2 weeks and would be very happy to come back.

  • "Lovely accommodation in a beautiful area."

    Everything we needed, very comfortable. Lots of local walks from the doorstep. Small enclosed garden for Lexi to roam free with access to a large meadow where she could run. Nice welcome from Debbie on arrival but not intrusive for rest of stay. Lovely treats, thank you.

  • "Had a great stay, owner very welcoming, meadow for dogs was excellent, decking area was small but very pleasant to sit out in the evening with a glass wine, although the outside furniture was looking a bit tired and a sweep around with a stiff brush been useful."

    Retreat was lovely, very clean and cosy, everything we needed and well equipped. Nice little extras like a pint of fresh milk, tea, coffee and cookies (yummy) appreciated, We enjoyed our stay and would come back again. 10/10

    It has everything you need, as well as a very comfortable bed and is situated in beautiful countryside. Although close to the owner’s property you have absolute privacy and an unobtrusive owner. Highly recommended.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Woodstock Retreat, we particularly liked the views over the trees and fields, and the fact that it was not overlooked."

    It was in a lovely quiet location, yet a short drive from the coast. It does however badly need a dishwasher.

  • "An excellent short break , in a small but exceptionally well appointed and equipped property, in nice surroundings, though with limited views."

    Made very welcome by Debbie. Interesting places to visit - by car! - and good weather.

  • "Just got home from a lovely stay at Woodstock Retreat."

    Met Debbie on arrival and she was very welcoming. She also left information and recommendations of places to visit/restaurants etc, which we found to be helpful. Also a lovely touch of wine and biscuits as a welcome gift. The property was lovely and it was great to have the enclosed outside area for the dog. The bed was very comfortable and all areas of the property were clean. The only area for improvement would be that the sofa is a little small for two people to sit comfortably. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Debbie.

    Whilst everything was as it should be and more sometimes those with walking restrictions should talk to owner prior to booking to ensure they are in the right place for their needs

    Has everything you need for few days away. Clean and fresh on arrival. Surrounding area is lovely for a few walks, also all the little beach towns are only about 20minute drive. I worry about taking my dog away sometimes but she felt instantly comfortable too and settled in nicely. Wouldn’t hesitate in staying again.
