Last minute change....amazing service

"Easy and user friendly webpage to book with. We initially booked a property and paid in full, however a week before we were due to go the owner contacted us direct to say that could not accommodate our dates, which put us in a real panic not knowing what we would be able to do. However, after contacting Eden retreats direct and we had call back from Josh, you put our minds at ease and gave the option of a refund or in finding us an alternative accommodation. We took the option of an alternative place/accommodation, which ended up being at a lower price than what we had paid for originally (the refund was paid back to us, promptly). We have no negative feedback on where we have just had a lovely week of relaxing, chilling and exploring. Amazing accommodation, perfect location, with loads of lovely extras upon our arrival. We stayed at Old Well Cottage, Belncarn, Cumbria, we highly recommend this place, the owners were very welcoming, lovely family run place. Thank You Eden for your recommendation, we would highly recommend using Eden to our family and friends."

"I recently booked a holiday next January for a group of 12. I found the property online with Eden and after messaging on the online chat spoke to them to confirm a couple of things, which was really helpful as I was able to speak to someone who had visited the property and could answer all my questions. Both the online and personal experience were straightforward."

Advanced booking for 2022

"We have just booked two properties at the same location with Eden Retreats for October 2022 to celebrate a number of special occasions in the family. Age ranges will be between 7 and 75.
