We booked short stay for a work away day, the team had a great couple of days and thought the house was fantastic. When needed the guys on site were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Fully accommodating for all of our needs. We will definitely be booking again for any future events.
Overall an exceptionally good experience! We organized a somewhat unusual event for this location, but it worked out extremely well. The actual place looks very good, and is in my opinion even more atmospheric than the description implies! Facilities were very good as well, with plentiful showers (many on suite), toilets and a downright impressive swimming pool.
The hosts were very friendly, and were on-site throughout the day.
It was a lovely house in a nice location, perfect for our company retreat. A large breakfast/dining room allowed us to discuss everything that was needed. We were asked to check out before 11 however, there were cleaners hanging around from 9:30 is while we were still working. Overall a nice experience.
The house was truly amazing, all of the staff were very helpful, I would highly recommend this property and will be back again. The pictures don't even come close to what you see when you first walk in, we were all blown away.
The guys at the Real Retreat run a fairly tight ship, communication was strong leading up to our stay and I have to say the house was exactly as advertised/expected. A really nice space which can cater for all needs. The pool area is a great spot and I recommend spending some time there.
All in all we had a good experience and were happy with the level of service provided throughout.
Amazing house, Luke who looks after the place while you're there is Fantastic and a really nice guy.
They were also really friendly and happy to accommodate us where they could.
What an amazing weekend!! The house was beyond expectation, the pool was huge and the facilities were amazing. I have staying in a number of house rentals and this was the only one that provided toiletries and dressing gowns! The hosts (Luke, wolf, Jamie and Denis) were lovely and around to answer any questions or help with anything. We are already planning our next trip back!!
