The Retreat is a small but light and welcoming room with a wonderful airy space and cast-iron, renaissance-style glass windows looking out across the cemetery to farmhouses which dot the slopes of the hillside beyond.
You enter through a beautiful, slate grey arched door, where there is a double bed within a cosy living area with kitchen, dining and sitting area and under-floor heating for your convenience.
The shower room is separate with washbasin, water closet and homely details such as a wooden, gothic church mirror.
This detached property is in the middle of a Baptist cemetery, which is rarely visited, set back from the road, making this a very quiet and atmospheric place for a relaxing break.

It is a 200-year-old, Grade II listed building with lots of well thought out, quaint details within, ideal for a couple to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
