Their attention to detail is astounding, with gorgeous treats including handmade Belgian chocolates, a decanter of port, fresh flowers, fluffy bathrobes, Egyptian cotton towels and finely woven linen on the king beds.
Once you have settled in with your choice of Twinings tea and a cake stand filled with luscious treats, there will be decisions, lovely decisions, that need to be made. Will you slip into the spa bath, book a massage and be pampered with Sothys Paris day spa treatments, wander the magnificent gardens to discover the lily-strewn ponds or perhaps borrow the Retreat's MG sports car?
Whatever you choose, remember to breathe in the fresh mountain air and listen to the symphony of birds.
In-cottage meals are available, but don’t miss cooking at the pond-side barbecue area – a stunning spot as the sun sets on the sandstone escarpments. Whether for a couples’ retreat or for a family holiday Crystal Creek Meadows will inspire."

Harnessing the exclusive Sothys Paris Eau Thermale range, you'll melt under the experienced hands of a trained therapist. For the complete indulgence, succumb to a day of pampering with your beloved.
