The Retreat, is a charming escape in Dorset, Kick back and relax in this calm, stylish space. My family and I have lived in North Dorset for the past 23 years, we all love walking around the coast and countryside. I work in the local town itself, Blandford Forum, it has lots of lovely places to eat, drink and takeaways. We are 20 minutes from the nearest beach, and 35 minutes from Bournemouth. Looking forward to having you in our local area

Very disappointing
My husband booked this a surprise birthday stay cation for me and our friends. On the day we were to check in my husband received a message from the owner saying the sauna isn't working. As a result 2 of our friends dropped out, this wasn't a great start to the trip. Once we arrived we realised the room is incredibly small and compact plus the sofa bed in the second room was so uncomfortable it was near miss for them. There is a tiny unit for doing the washing and 2 gas hobs next to it. I honestly cannot imagine 4 people staying here it would be very cramped. The hot tub was nice with a good view. Besides that there's not much going for this retreat. We were told the sauna will be repaired the next day..there was no sign of anyone coming to repair it. The temperature also dropped at night and there was no heating. It was a dissatisfing stay. I don't recommend this place.
