Just 90 minutes from London, 60 minutes from Cambridge and 30 minutes from Colchester, Retreat East is the perfect sanctuary for those precious moments. Our collection comprises of a range of outstanding, characterful barns and a 16th-century farmhouse, all of which have been designed with a sustainable rural chic vibe, perfect for hosting you guests overnight so the party can continue.
We’re passionate about creating sensational dishes using the finest locally sourced ingredients – including from our own Kitchen Garden. Our Head Chef Adam Spicer (Masterchef Professional 2019) has created three sensational menus to choose from. All our menus focus on using the best local artisan producers and our team has expertly refined these menus to truly showcase our passion for fresh flavours and organic produce.
