This was our second stay and once again we had a very enjoyable relaxing break. The property is spacious has everything you need and our two furry friends love it too. - Carolyn - December '15

Mountbatten Retreat was in, for us, the perfect location at only 3-4 minutes walk from the river playground, brewery and cafes. The space was a perfect size both to share with another family, and to have some space from one another if needed. The collection of toys for kids was an added bonus. We would happily stay here again. - Chris - October '15

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home from Home We had a fantastic few days in Bright made all the better by the comfort of staying in Mountbatten retreat, with our four legged friend Jimmy. I have to congratulate the owners on their attention to detail in making sure that all of their guest's needs were more than adequately met. This was the first time that we had taken our "rescue" dog Jimmy away, and he loved the walks, and the whole "holiday" experience. The only negative was the dreadful smell of the fruit from the ginkho tree in the front garden, but some things are beyond all control! Two nights was not enough and we will definately be back! We would thoroughly recommend this property to all especially the close proximity to the town and walks
