Good location for walking as long as you know that working farms can be noisy. At 6am every morning a loud grinding sound from a nearby building disturbed our sleep for at least an hour.
There are no "panoramic views" or "far reaching views" as claimed on website.Just a view of the adjacent field through the small kitchen window. There is no "delightful dining area" just a table against a wall under some shelves.
The TV screen on the wall was a bit too small to view clearly from the sofa on the opposite side of the room. Especially any text.
Bedroom door and shower room doors creaked really loudly and lengthily and the bedroom door wouldn't close properly.
Bed 'lumpy' on one side.
The "sunny courtyard" is where your and your neighbour's car are parked. The view is of the rear of another building.
Farmers were pleasant. Shower was good.




Just what we needed

We spent a lovely week seeing family and friends in Yorkshire for the first time in months. Everything was just as advertised. Our only (tiny) quibble was that the cottage is set in the most beautiful countryside but did not face it, nor did its outside space. Being able to sit and look at a view would have brought us back over and over again as everything else was perfect.



Another Excellent stay

We booked at short notice and were not dissatisfied with our stay. We have stayed at Robbies retreat several times now and always been happy with everything. All covid controls meet specifications and we felt satisfied that we were as safe as possible.

We were disappointed that there was no welcome pack and could not understand why this could not have been adapted with sachets of products and biscuits instead of home made items. The mattress was terrible and the towels although clean were a bit well used and worn. The shower hose clip is on the wrong way round and we needed to take the shower head off the wall until the water ran warm otherwise it squirted outside of the shower on to the floor. Cleanliness was good and there was a good/adequate range of cutlery and crockery.



Excellent as always

This was our 3rd visit and was just what we needed after shielding. The premises are spotless and measures to meet covid requirements are in place, would recommend to anyone wanting a getaway in a quiet area of beauty.

We only booked Robbie's Retreat a few weeks beforehand, but we were so glad that we had! Spotlessly clean, with a good shower and large comfortable bed, and a pleasant kitchen/lounge/diner that gave us all the space that we needed. Reassuring to see how well cleaned it was and the precautions taken by the owner to keep us safe in these worrying Coronavirus times. Only possible criticism was that the only glasses were for a pint or wine, neither really suitable for my vodka! Not to worry, we walked across the fields footpaths to the pub (just over half a mile away and a lovely walk) and the kind bar staff gave us a glass in exchange for a donation in their charity box. We would definitely return to Robbie's Retreat!
