The Retreat is the award winning and recently completed luxury holiday apartment adjoining Wolferlow House, the former rectory, set in beautiful scenery on the Herefordshire / Worcestershire border. The highlight is the exclusive use of a private 9m indoor heated swimming pool and a Finnish sauna - entirely to yourselves. The Retreat comprises a luxurious double bedroom with en-suite shower featuring a king size bed and Chinese furniture. A proper fold-out double bed settee allows extra sleeping in the sitting area. Double doors and a Juliet balcony give views across the croquet lawn. The fully equipped kitchen is tucked in the corner of the generous living area with flat screen TV, comfortable chairs and a dining table. A wide double-glazed glass screen leads to an elevated paved balcony with outdoor seating and distant views over farmland to the church and Wolferlow Court. The large gardens are open each year for the National Garden Scheme (13 June 2015 this year) and include an orchard, wildflower meadow with ponds, herbaceous borders and distant views across farmland. Well away from any busy roads the property is peaceful and private. Attention to detail includes the provision of top quality bed linen, towels and luxury towelling robes. The Retreat is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic and luxury getaway or to bring the baby / younger children and enjoy a family time together.

A flight of 15 stone steps with handrail provide access to The Retreat so it is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.

Bromyard (5 miles) Home to the Herefordshire Marmalade Festival, The International Town Criers’ Festival, the Scarecrow Festival, Dr Who Museum, Nozzstock Rock Festival, Jazz and Folk Festivals; there’s something for everyone going on here! That’s before you visit Brockhampton National Trust, Bromyard Downs or Bringsty Common.
Tenbury Wells (7 miles) Traditional market town on the River Teme hosting the Mistletoe and Holly market and has many traditional shops on the high street that you won’t find anywhere else. Good food and drink is to be expected when the town is surrounded by farms, hop fields and orchards.
