The Rockhouse Retreat, Britain's First 21st  Century Luxury Cave House Holiday Retreat

The Rockhouse Retreat is a unique romantic retreat in Worcestershire and proudly Britain's first 21st-century cave house retreat.   

This secluded hand sculpted retreat has been occupied for 800 years and was featured on Channel 4's ‘Grand Designs’ presented by Kevin McCloud.   Hidden amongst the tree canopy in 3 acres of secluded Worcestershire woodland, it is the perfect romantic retreat to rest, relax and rejuvenate on the banks of Honey Brook whilst feeling energised by mother earth.     

The Rockhouse Retreat was one of just five 'Grand Designs' selected from 180 amazing spaces to be featured in 'Kevin's Grandest Designs', a special episode commissioned to celebrate 20 years of the inspiring Channel 4 TV series. 


"The Rockhouse Retreat is way way more impressive in person and the setting is as breath taking as The Rockhouse itself!"

The restoration of this hand sculpted wonder took thousands of man-hours and involved the excavation of over seventy tonnes of rock by hand and was completed in just nine months creating a unique romantic retreat set in three acres of secluded Worcestershire countryside. 


As much a sculpture as a cave house, The Rockhouse features stylish modern-day creature comforts such as under floor heating in the shower room and cleverly hidden lighting for a nurturing and natural ambience throughout. 

 The Rockhouse has a generous bedroom with king sized bed and wood burning stove, a cosy 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 ignite your inner cave spirit with alfresco dining around the fire pit. 

Honeymoons, marriage proposals and special occasions; The Rockhouse is the perfect retreat to surprise your darling love or pamper yourselves with a wellness weekend away. It's secluded location enables you to relax and reconnect with nature.
