Guestbook comments from the owner

The Old Granary provides a wonderful space for a large party to all get together.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and left on the Sunday having not needing to leave the house for anything in between.

The house and facilities were just what we needed and there was plenty of space so we didn't feel on top of each other.

I would highly recommend the "Treats at the Retreat" packages, from the moment we started planning our weekend, there was nothing that Karen didn't try and help provide for us and on the actual weekend, everything was better than we had hoped for, the food especially was restaurant quality and her team of helpers were amazing, especially the young man (The Butler) we had serving us canapes and cocktails on the Saturday evening!

A huge thank you to Karen for all your help in providing us an amazing weekend that all 17 of our guests enjoyed, most importantly the bride to be! xx

The Old Granary is a fantastic, modern house with a cosy feel to it. There were 15 of us on a Hen Weekend and it was very spacious - the hot tub was a particular favourite.

I would recommend the yummy Butler for a bit of entertainment and eye candy. Beauty package, waitress service, food provided and DJ were all brilliant and made the Bride's weekend very special.

I couldn't have organised all of this without the help of the lovely owner Karen who advised me every step of the way. A huge thank you to you.
