Press page

Welcome to the Boutique Retreats Press Page. Whether it’s a bijoux cottage for two nestled in a fishing village or a palatial pad for a family gathering, we’ve had a great response to our retreats from the press. We’re hugely proud of them, so we’re more than happy to arrange press trips or provide images and information – just get in touch.

In the press

We think our retreats are really rather special and it seems other people do too! Our retreats appear in the press now and then and like a proud parent we like to show them off, so take a look below at our recent coverage.
