Our weekend wedding at The Retreat was amazing! The outdoor area for our ceremony and reception was green, with lots of trees and so so beautiful, it was the perfect setting for our rustic wedding. Having guests stay onsite was fabulous, it was the perfect weekend! And team very friendly!

The Retreat was a perfect venue for our day. From the day we first inspected he property to the wedding they were so supportive and helpful. They assisted us not only with a stunning venue, but also to find suitable vendors which made the planning process so easy. In addition our guests loved the option to stay on site. We had the best day ever and couldn't recommend the venue highly enough!

Your wedding was amazing and we are so pleased that you both had the perfect day. We are always here to assist where possible with choosing the suppliers that are going to make the day relax and enjoyable. We wish you both the best of luck for the future and look forward to keeping in touch.
