  • "What a find, this place is just what we needed after a tough year."

    It’s secluded, quiet, just perfect. The hot tub is the icing on the cake. The hut has everything you would need. The summer house is lovely and has games a radio and in the summer would be a great place to unwind. Lots of grounds around the hut that is yous and it’s well lit at night with lights along the path. The hosts are fantastic, really friendly and nothing is too much, you ask and it’s not an issue. Prosecco, cookies, posh crisps, milk and eggs are waiting for you on arrival. Owners have 3 great dogs that are friendly and greet you daily. We will look to return in the bigger River View with our kids. Oh the games room such fun. Cant recommend enough.

  • "What a beautiful place to stay and relax."

    The Shepherds hut is so comfy with everything you could need including herbs and spices and our welcome munchies ,wine,eggs and fresh flowers. We couldn't have asked for more. You have complete privacy but our lovely hosts were there to help if needed. Laying in the hot tub looking at the stars with a fire in the fire pit to warm you when you get out of the tub it doesn't get any better than this,a little slice of heaven. I couldn't recommend Orchard retreat enough. Thankyou for having us ,we will be back x
