The Rockhouse Retreat is a unique couples retreat in Worcestershire and proudly Britain's first 21st-century cave house romantic retreat, as featured on Channel 4's ‘Grand Designs’ presented by Kevin McCloud.
We have also been featured on Channel 5's ‘The Saturday Show’ with Sarah Beenie, Good Morning Britain with Andi Peters and The Loraine Kelly Show. We were also selected from 180 projects to be featured on 'Kevin's Grandest Designs' to celebrate 20 years of the inspiring show.
The grueling restoration of this 800-year-old hand sculpted wonder created a wave of national and international media coverage, including a film posted on The LAD Bible which received over 3.4 million views in just 24 hours. The thought-provoking restoration which took thousands of man-hours and was created in just nine months, which involved the excavation of over seventy tonnes of rock by hand resulting in a unique romantic retreat set in acres of secluded Worcestershire countryside and is the perfect place to retreat from the modern world.
This wonderfully romantic retreat is a one-off hand-sculptured cave house carved from a Triassic sandstone escarpment on the banks of Honey Brook near Bewdley and the Wyre Forest. Secluded amidst the outstanding natural beauty of three acres of private woodland, evidence shows that it has been occupied for over 750 years until it was vacated in 1962, and laid empty until this incredible restoration in 2015.
As much a sculpture as a cave house, The Rockhouse features stylish modern-day creature comforts such as under floor heating in the bathroom and cleverly hidden lighting for a nurturing and natural ambience throughout.
Great for celebrating special occasions or a rejuvenating wellness weekend away, 'The Rockhouse' has a generous bedroom with king sized bed and wood burning stove, a snug sitting room with inglenook fireplace, fully fitted kitchen with an electric range, three ovens, an induction hob and ample terrace for dining, either cooking on the gas BBQ or alfresco dining around the fire pit.
The Rockhouse Retreat is within walking distance to the historic riverside town of Bewdley, and close to the ancient Wyre Forest, Severn Valley Railway, West Midlands Safari Park and many other local attractions. It is a super venue for a romantic weekend away, a unique corporate team building day, a fully catered festival wedding or the ultimate 'romantic surprise'. Or why not simply relax, reconnect with nature and be romanced by the rejuvenating atmosphere of this uplifting magical cave house. The Rockhouse Retreat is way more impressive in person and the setting is as breathtaking as The Rockhouse itself!
