The Retreat have been taking care of Lily our spaniel as she has advanced arthritis. Lily is so well looked after she loves to go. The treatment they offer is so varied and always something new to help her. Bruce our 2yr old spaniel has just had his first treatment for hip dysplasia and loved every minute! For a nervous boy he was relaxed incredibly quickly and loved his swim.

Highly recommend, don’t go anywhere else superb treatment.

These people care!!! They are the best priced too and they only have your animals best interest at heart and the atmosphere is so welcoming and lovely. My doggy Kizzy is my World and The Retreat has been her World and saviour! I cannot thank Danielle and Imogen enough for all the care they have given so far to my doggy. 5 star service with so much genuine love and concern. xxx
