La Retraite is an off grid pod set in a private valley where springs rise and flow into the lake and onwards to the river Cherwell and the Thames surrounded by young woodland and farmland both livestock and arable. You may wake up to the baaing of lambs or the lowing of cattle in nearby fields. Deer and badges inhabit the valley along with numerous birds and rabbits. Pheasants and Partridge from the nearby shoot will wander past too.
La Retraite has solar panels, potable water, a log burner and infrared heating and a shower and compost loo.
It sleeps two and can just take a baby in a travel cot.
Dogs are welcome but must be kept under control at all times.
The pod has a superb sofa bed and you wake up to views across the small lake. On sunny days breakfast on the deck by the lake or BBQ by the picnic logs.
