What does your ultimate romantic getaway look like? Think hot tubs, a cinema den, deep bubble baths, sea views, comfort, pet-friendly and a light, trendy space for you to enjoy.
Specialising in stylish boutique hotels, with a reputation for providing comfortable luxury, Lovers Retreats offer the ideal mini-break.
Appealing mainly to couples, romance and pure luxury are at the heart of the independently owned retreats. With relaxation at the top of the agenda, each thoughtfully designed, sumptuous property is beautifully situated by the beach and boasts exclusive locations with unmatched views.
Lovers Retreats have thought of it all; from lighters to light the fire and the 'his and hers' dressing gowns to the essentials when guests arrive; local tea and coffee, an elegant cream tea and - of course - a bottle of Bubbly to get your getaway started in style. Completely pet-friendly, 4-legged guests receive a Doggy Hamper on arrival!
With a passion for property, Charlotte and her fiancé Joey had owned a selection of Buy to Lets in Portsmouth for a few years. The couple were keen to channel their creativity and enthusiasm into something more rewarding; something special and original that would make people smile.
Lovers Retreats are the ultimate in luxury; somewhere to relax, reconnect and make memories. Each retreat has been imaginatively transformed into an elegant, light and cosy getaway; designed specifically for guests to feel both at home and 'away from it all'.
In 2014, Charlotte and Joey moved to Cornwall and purchased their first renovation project in Ladock. With holes in the roof and a flooded basement, the property was in desperate need of some serious TLC. The couple purposefully transformed it into a beautiful, tranquil home, adding a balcony over the river, and lots of unique features. This was the beginning of Lovers Retreats and Charlotte and Joey soon began their next project in Charlestown.
The Public Toilets (AKA Loo With A View!) had come up for auction and, with their love for a challenge, the couple decided to go for it! It took 9 months to receive planning permission and over a year to renovate. The exciting build was featured on George Clarkes Amazing Spaces, and it is now almost fully booked for the third year running.
From the first ever renovation to the most recent, Lovers Retreats continues to expand. As their property portfolio develops so does the imagination, creativity and confidence of Charlotte and Joey. The passion behind the retreats is clear, only adding to their charm.
Having recently purchased an old Bungalow, Lovers Retreats are determined to follow their vision and pioneer the sustainable property movement by creating an eco-friendly SIPS build (Structural Insulated Panels). This inspiring project will be the third retreat in the collection.
What better way to unwind than to enjoy the fusion of a thoroughly modern getaway with authentic coastal living? Oozing with coastal chic the Lovers Retreats embody our definition of 'boutique'; stylish, intimate, exclusive, luxurious and, of course, perfectly quirky.
