Best B&B I have ever stayed in. Cabin is amazing and quiet, scenery is lovely and the oats are the loveliest people you will ever meet. The breakfast was the best way to wake up and goddamn delicious. Cannot wait to come back.

We came to get away for a peaceful night, 'The Retreat' was perfect! Holt is a beautiful town, magical at this time of year. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and right on time. Our hosts were fab and we will definitely be back!! Thank you.

It is very hard to leave 'The Retreat' once you have settled in. This is simply the most perfect place to escape to and de-stress. I could not think of a more perfect setting. With the beautiful drives along the coast and charming spots to pause and enjoy, it's a great spot to be. Our hosts were lovely and treated us to possibly the best breakfast ever! We don't want to leave. I hope we will be back sometime soon.

We came with the intention to "recharge our batteries" and that certainly happened in this peaceful and calm surroundings. We found the cabin extremely comfortable and homely and the breakfasts certainly filled you up. We received a really warm welcome from Matthew and Jacqui and both were extremely caring. Explored much of the surrounding area and fell in love with Blakeney (and the seals!), Salthouse, Cley and Holkham. Beautiful walks. See you again!

We were so pleased that our original choice of 'place to stay' was fully booked otherwise we may never have discovered 'The Retreat'. It has got to be one of favourite 'B&B's ever - Matthew & Jacqui are lovely people who have got the balance right in making you feel welcome, asking about your day etc, to giving you the privacy to relax and enjoy this wonderful cabin & their garden & surroundinfs. Breakfasts have been fabulous - kept us going all day - we would recommend cookies in Salthouse for lovely seafood at really good prices, and splash out at Byfords in Holt. Places to visit - well everything in this area is worth seeing - Felbrigg Manor was my favourite National Trust Property - we will certainly be booking for next year as soon as we get back.


Thank you Matthew & Jacqui xx

We have had a lovely stay, tasty breakfasts and wonderful surroundings. The 'Retreat' has provided us with a great base to explore the local area by day and relax in the evening once Daisy is asleep. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Huge thanks.

'A BIG THANKS' Matthew & Jacqui for sharing your beautiful garden and "the Retreat" with us. A fantastic area for cycling (thanks for letting us put our bikes in your games room) and visiting National Trust properties. Would recommend a visit to Sheringham Park and the Poppy Line. A fantastic holiday in every way. Going home a few pounds heavier due to Matthew's breakfasts but also a lot more relaxed and happy!

Enjoyed our stay here! Very nice surrounding area, lovely garden to look out on. The ride on the steam train from Holt to Sheringham was lovely, bought back memories of childhood. Altogether a lovely weekend, a perfect birthday rest.
