We had a terrific time at Chinese Elm Retreat! My kids and dog absolutely loved the gardens while the adults appreciated the BBQ and outdoor furniture. The beds were super cosy and provided us with a great rest! We'll definitely come back!

We booked the Chinese Elm Retreat for a for a long weekend celebration. The lounges, dining room, and kitchen were perfect for the 12 of us and gave us plenty of space to enjoy our time. My 4 poster double bedroom was super comfortable and has beautiful views to wake up to. This was our first visit but we'd love to visit again in the future!
