The Retreats ratings
Our most exclusive Retreats
Exclusive for their envied location and high-end interiors where comfort, attention to detail and luxury have all been taken into account, these properties all have the wow factor and will leave you feeling refreshed, pampered and reluctant to go home.
See the full list on our blog.
Our cottage ratings
To assist you in finding the perfect place to stay, we have awarded our cottages a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum style rating. This is based on our own standards and the award is given according to a mixture of criteria – location, aesthetic appeal, standard of luxury, facilities offered and style factors.
For example, a Platinum award goes to our most stylish and all round exclusive properties and a Bronze award may go to a cottage that may be a little less refined in places but still meets the high standards necessary to fit into the collection.
Look out for the above Coastal and Country icons on the individual property pages.
Holidaying with babies and children
Our star ratings are designed to highlight those cottages which are most suitable for your young ones.
Here’s a brief explanation:
5 Star: Suitable for children of all ages and including a private garden. Some have outdoor play equipment, games room, a specially designed child’s bedroom, or some have a combination of all three.
4 Star: Children will love these properties but they are missing one or two elements of the five star properties.
3 Star: Equipped with games, toys, children’s DVDs and dressing up box but may lack a garden. Some of these cottages do have specially designated children’s rooms or playrooms.
2 Star: Welcoming to children but with no private garden or limited outdoor space.
1 Star: Primarily for couples but can supply a travel cot for a baby on request.
