The Retreat is a beautiful retreat.
The Retreat is a beautiful retreat and exceeded our expectations - it was quirky in layout and almost had 4 floors or 2 and 2 small floors - you will see what i mean when you book - it gave extra privacy from where our 2 year old was sleeping and quiet!! The house is beautifully furnished and the pool was stunning - the hot tub was not very hot but was still good. The whole pool area was spotless but was very slippy when wet! The table and chairs in the pool area allowed us to have face masks and read magazines whilst others were swimming. We travelled as a family of 3 generations and 8 of us with a 2 year old - the owners kindly left swimming aids, swimming nappies, travel cot, highchair, changing mat and some toys for the 2 year old - much appreciated. They left easter treats for all the children - thank you. There is a bathroom next to the kitchen which was useful and is not in the house description. It was useful to have 2 fridges and the washer and dryer and dishwasher were all used well! The bedrooms were spotless and the beds were very comfortable. Personally i would have liked another tv in the house - 1 is quite limiting - maybe in the playroom as when cooking i didn't want the children under my feet and they were tired after long days and didnt muster energy for table tennis - a large tv would be good in this room. A comments book would have been good and please note dressing gowns and slippers were not included though were displayed in the house pictures. There were also no radio alarm clocks. Finally on a safety note - the windows in the upper bedrooms were low and had no safety catches and we had to ensure we kept them all closed on a sweltering heat wave week when we wanted them open. Alas there is no garden but we sat out on the lawn just adjacent to the front of the house. Will we be back probably, would we recommend definitely. Thank You Mr and Mrs Collins for all your kindnesses.

Amazing Property
My family and I stayed in the Retreat for a week. We had the most amazing week. The owners were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us to make us feel welcome. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were fantastic and the games room was a real bonus. The children had a fantastic time and my husband and I had a very relaxing week. The photographs don't do the Retreat justice. We will definitely be recommending the Retreat to our friends and family and would love to return.

The owner was friendly & accommodating and The Retreat is an exceptionally clean and well furnished property. The convenience of the fantastic swimming pool is a real bonus and the games room was well equipped. The location to Lincoln city centre and local shops was very convenient. We would highly recommend this property to any of our friends.
