          Hi, We are thinking of staying later this month. We have a 2 1/2 year old and are wondering if the retreat is family friendly? Do you have a baby sitting service while we go for dinner etc.? Regards, Bob

          Hi Bob, Yes we are family friendly. There are very few dates available though. We can provide a 3rd party babysitting service. Please email us directly for further information. Kind Regards Tony
