  • “Wow....Very Peaceful”

    Back from our 4 night stay at The Retreat. One word...Wow. The directions given to us by Carol the owner were spot on. Very easy to find. The Retreat was just perfect, loved the safari theme, everything you could need was there. Very clean, cosy, set in lovely grounds and just so peaceful. The amenities are five minutes walk away for food and the local pub which, we would highly recommend for a night out.

    Back from our 4 night stay at The Retreat. One word...Wow. The directions given to us by Carol the owner were spot on. Very easy to find. The Retreat was just perfect, loved the safari theme, everything you could need was there. Very clean, cosy, set in lovely grounds and just so peaceful. The amenities are five minutes walk away for food and the local pub which, we would highly recommend for a night out. If you just wanted a relaxing night then a night in at The Retreat this is for you. The veranda is just perfect with the hammocks to just sit and enjoy the views and the quietness with a glass of wine. There is nothing i would change about The Retreat other than staying longer. The owners Carol and Ron are just a lovely couple, on hand should you need anything but they also respect your space. Very down to earth couple who made us very welcome. We just wish we could have stayed longer but we will on our next visit. The hard work that has been put into building The Retreat has paid off as it has been very well done. Don't change anything Carol and Ron just keep doing what you are doing. If you are looking for a peaceful 'Retreat' then look no further. Sharon and Nick. Hemel Hempstead. September 2019.

The property

Surrounded by the Suffolk countryside and within four stunning acres of grounds that are shared with the owner's home and their other holiday let, The Retreat is a lovely wooden lodge, providing you with a sweet escape from a busy life.

Suited for a couple looking to spend quality time together on a romantic break, this property has the benefit of being within easy walking distance of rolling hills and countryside, as well as pubs, shops and local restaurants.

Once you have arrived at the lodge, you will take three steps up onto the veranda and through the front door straight into the open-plan living space, noticing the unique African decor influences.

Cook up a delicious meal in the modern kitchen, making use of the electric oven and hobs to create a tasty dish for your loved one, and they can watch you in action from the dining table with a glass of wine in hand.

On a chilly evening, switch on the electric fire for some added warmth and nestle down into the plush settee in front of a favourite film for a completely care-free evening.

As the night draws to a close, head into the bedroom to rest your head on the king-size bed after an adventure filled day.

In the morning, jump out of bed and into the en-suite bathroom shower to wake up your senses and begin the day, with the property also benefiting from a separate cloakroom with WC accessed from the living space.

On a summer morning take your coffee outside onto the veranda, where you can gaze out onto the grounds from one of the swing seats.

If you're sat out in the evening, either here or at the garden table and chairs on the lawn, you might catch sight of some deer, foxes and other wildlife seen before within the owners' grounds, a special experience you won't find in most other properties.

You're close to all of the local amenities, being surrounded by these lovely acres it's easy to forget, so if you don't feel like cooking in the evening, take a stroll over to one of the nearby pubs that serve up lovely classic dishes.

The Brandon Country Park and the Thetford Forest Park are also within walking distance, perfect for walkers or cyclists, and for those thrill-seekers you can swing through the trees at Go Ape Thetford, a 3.4-mile drive from The Retreat, and explore the forest from above.

Spend a brilliant holiday at The Retreat and get to know this beautiful area of Suffolk.
