This was our first time using Eden…

"This was our first time using Eden Retreats and we were not disappointed. We stayed at Old Well Cottage, Cumbria. We were very impressed with Eden Retreats and the standard of the cottage and the owners. The cottage was perfect - very clean and had everything you would need. The welcome gifts were a nice touch as was the home baking. We will definitely use the company again."

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 Diamond, 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 a 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."

Fabulous stay - very friendly and very quiet

"Just come back from an amazing 5 nights in one of the properties called "Old Well Cottage" - just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the hosts for arranging such good weather!
