And it gets five star review. Someone Liz who visited in April 2024 write on TripAdvisor said: "We stayed in the Cobbett Lodge which includes the sauna and hot tub inside the lodge. I couldn’t fault it. The sauna and hot tub were bliss! The instructions to the sauna were very easy to follow and we spent a lot of time relaxing in there. We had a great, relaxing weekend." Among some of the new area for improvement people have flagged, are the need to bring some of your own toiletries as not everything is provided.

The Duke of Cambridge pub is within walking distance. The pub describes itself as a traditional English pub offering the perfect combination of a traditional country pub with a relaxed modern design, ideal for a great pint of local beer or a delicious taste of Surrey fare.

A reviewer added on TripAdvisor: "The Duke of Cambridge pub is literally a 30 seconds walk over a small bridge so you don’t have to leave the retreat . Nice pub and the food is lovely and well priced."
