Perfect position for walks in the Forest. Rowan Tree Retreat is very well equipped should you wish to cook but equally there are places nearby for meals. We went to the New Inn and the Dig and Muffler - both really nice. The bed was very comfortable and the garden perfect and secure for our dog. Hot tub was a must!

What a fantastic place! Comfort, a gate right into the woods, and everything we could possibly want a stone's throw away. Will have to come back when there isn't a heatwave, to make proper use of the hot tub.

All of the really positive reviews are full justified. This is a wonderful cottage in a fantastic location. The cottage is suitable for couples and family's but perfect for anyone who has a dog or in our case two dogs. Having a full enclosed garden (dog and wild boar proof) was incredible combined with the dog treats, mud daddy, dog bowls and the gate that goes straight into the forest. There are some wonderful walks through the forest and along the river Wye to Symonds Yat with two great pubs on the river. We also had a great Sunday roast at the New Inn which is less than 10 minutes walk away. In addition to all of this Audrey also supplied some lovely treats and essentials. Highly recommended and will hopefully be back soon.

Thank you for hosting our stay at Rowan Tree Lodge! It was the perfect break for us all, and your service was fantastic. We had some great walks and loved using the hot tub. Thank you so much for all the thoughtful extra touches too, Audrey!

Rowan Tree Retreat is a wonderful escape from it all. It is exactly as described by all the reviews you have read. We loved, above all, the fact that you genuinely felt welcome. With some hosts you get the sense that you are being ‘allowed’ to stay in their home. Audrey makes you feel like family - especially if you have a dog as there will be treats, a mud daddy and even a special waste bin. The retreat itself is very comfortable and cosy, the underfloor heating is a real bonus. The hot tub is fantastic, tucked away near the trees. We were unlucky in that we had only a short stay during storm Eunice and lost power for 8 hours. Audrey went out of her way to check on us personally, providing candles and a list of local places we could go to that she had gone out to check out herself first. Beat that!

Please note these terms and conditions and house rules may change any time and without notice

House Rules

Please leave the cottage clean & tidy as you found it.  If there are any breakages please let us know immediately.  The garden and drive gates must always be closed as we have wild boar nearby and they can literally de-turf the lawn over night.

Guests are required to leave the house as they find it ie tidy with all the plates, cutlery, glasses, cups pans etc cleaned and put away. Please place all rubbish and recycling in bins outside before leaving. Although a security/damages deposit is taken if the costs exceed this you are fully liable for your stay for any damage or items taken/broken. Please note you must not invite other people to stay during your holiday at Rowan Tree Retreat unless preauthorised. Only a maximum of 4 people can stay plus 1 baby in a cot. The sofas are not to be used for beds. The leather cushions on the sofas are zipped to the sofa & they must not be removed. This has happened in the past the zip has been damaged and it was very costly to repair which you would be liable for.

Please be aware of other neighbours nearby and keep the noise level down. We do not allow music outside after 11pm and if you do play it before please keep it to a reasonable noise level that would not disturb people nearby.

Apart from fair wear and tear if there is any damage inside or out reasonable charges will be incurred payable after your stay if you haven't paid before your leave.  Charges will also be incurred for items missing e.g, bath robes.

Access

The cottage and garden is for your own enjoyment.  We have a garage in the drive where you park which we require 24/7 access to but will avoid disturbing you should we require access. We also monitor the hot tub so will pop over to check it but again we do our best not to disturb you. Occasionally we may need to do some maintenance but we will try and give you advance notice. If the hot tub needs urgent maintenance, it may be unusable in which case there is no refund but this is highly unlikely The gas tank is filled when low so this may happen during your stay. We try and give notice when the windows are cleaned but this isn't always possible.

Security Deposit

We will take a security deposit of £200 at the time of the booking which will be refunded after you have left and the cottage checked. 

Cancellation By us

If for any reason we have to cancel your booking in advance due to
circumstances beyond our control for example fire, flood, exceptional weather conditions, epidemics, destruction/damage to the property you will be refunded the full amount of the booking.
If we have to terminate your holiday early for the above reasons you will be refunded you based on the time remaining of the booking. No additional compensation, expenses or costs will be payable.  

Cancellation By You & Refund Policy

We advise that you take out travel insurance to cover all eventualities should you need to cancel.

If you cancel more than 6 weeks in advance you will lose booking deposit unless you rebook for different dates

Any time from 6 weeks before your stay there will be NO refund

Any damage beyond fair wear & tear will need to be paid for
