“The most amazing place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.”
Reviewed 30 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A nature lover's paradise. North Warren RSPB reserve, 5 mins walk, Minsmere RSPB reserve, 12 mins drive, Dunwich heath, 15 mins drive. If you want peace and tranquillity in beautiful grounds with wildlife on your doorstep, look no further than The Retreat. A short drive to Aldeburgh and Southwold for charming town centre amenities and good pub food. The owner is lovely and full of information about the area. Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Mrs”
Reviewed 26 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This idyllic retreat is the perfect escape to the countryside. Situated in the most picturesque forest, The Retreat is welcoming, warm and beautifully furnished. The inviting window seat looks out into the forest where we could watch the wildlife and keep warm by the wood burning stove. The kitchen is well equipped for family meals while the living area beckons after our walk to Thorpeness and Aldeburgh. The bedrooms are luxurious with the choice of ensuite or family bath.

Our family highlights included having a cup of coffee on the wrap around veranda, playing with the dog who came to visit, watching the miniature donkeys or jumping on the trampoline- mostly our son but we had a go too!

Thank you!

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Ideally situated for birding hotspots in Suffolk, with North Warren literally next door and the likes of Minsmere and Dunwich Heath nearby. The trees surrounding the cottage abound with wildlife, so there is really no need to leave the property, with acres of woodland to wander through, or sit on the veranda just relaxing.

“Hidden Gem for a Holiday Home”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The Retreat is the most amazing holiday home set in acres and acres of private woodland. There are 2 resident miniature donkeys who are adorable. There is a bluebell wood, lots of beautifully scented lily of the valley plants together with ponds and streams. You can just park your car in the grounds and go for the most beautiful walks, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh are very near and there is a Hide for bird watching less than a five minute walk away.
The lounge and kitchen have windows on 3 sides making it light and spacious. It is very comfortable and yet practicable. Would highly recommend this property.
