"High quality touches and details everywhere"
We have designed our luxury accommodation farm stay to make you feel incredibly special.
Soft, exquisite linens, handmade items and select little nooks have been crafted for you to relax and enjoy the views from our large picture windows. It has been designed with extra insulation and wide overhanging eaves to capture morning and evening winter sun and to keep it blissfully cool in summer.
Our unique rock-edged deck is the perfect place to enjoy a romantic glass of bubbles with sweeping views across the river to farmland framed by limestone bluffs. And if you wait till dark, you will discover a night sky that is truly beautiful, best viewed from the double outdoor bath. The peaceful burble of the close-by river has to be experienced to truly understand how tranquil Ripples Retreat really is.
