Have thoroughly enjoyed our facial, swim and sauna, followed by a delicious afternoon tea. Luxurious facilities, attentive staff and overall superb experience. We will definitely do this again!
Went with friends last night for the first time and I thought the facilities were lovely! The only point I wanted to make would be that it would be really good if you had a phone or something to ring through to reception to order drinks, rather than having to walk though, but other than that it was fab x
gorgeous pool lovely setting. just chill and enjoy
lovely setting! had a lovely brunch, massage and time in the Spa today! good value for money too. Will definetly be back, soon!

What a lovely place!! 5*!
Visited last night with a group of friends for an evening spa (8-10). Lovely atmosphere and very relaxing. The only disappointment was that as the restaurant and bar area was quiet, the bar manager closed up the bar and left well before we were finished therefore we couldn’t have a drink after the spa to end the evening, at the end of the spa it was a quick change and out - this put a dampener on an otherwise lovely evening.
I have just been for lunch with a friend. Lovely venue, great ambiance, friendly staff & great food. Will definitely return. Thank you x
Had a brilliant full spa day here with my mam. From the amazing treatments we had, the lovely staff and the delicious food it was all perfect! We had a the best time! Thank you x More...
Absolutely lovely afternoon tea, the best I’ve ever had! Fantastic atmosphere. Lovely, friendly staff. Perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon. ❤️

Been for pamper day today fab day from start to finish
We enjoyed a fantastic evening meal at The Assembly at Rickerby Retreat. The drinks menu was vast, with some great sounding cocktails. I enjoyed a Raspberry Bellini but was also tempted by the gin selection too. The restaurant was well designed, a relaxed atmosphere with great views across the grounds. But the food - that was amazing. We experienced the best food we've eaten out in Carlisle (in over 14 years). It was fantastic quality and I would highly recommend enjoying the food for yourself. 5 stars. Well done to the Chefs More...
Amazing, accommodating and rememberable. We have been tonight for a swim and food. We have had 8 course taster menu, and had an amazing time. Can’t wait to tell my friends about it! More...
Although it’s local you feel a million miles away from anywhere. A relaxing atmosphere and facilities in such beautiful surroundings. The restaurant is amazing and the food is to die for. Will be back and would recommend to others. More...
Fabulous evening last night. Food, surroundings, staff & atmosphere all truly superb. Lovely to be able to sit out on the rooftop terrace. Would thoroughly recommend.
Amazing treatment by Louise was just what I needed! Relaxing from start to finish Thank you .... x
Dinner on Saturday evening- BEAUTIFUL! I called ahead to arrange fizz at our table, the staff were completely happy to help when I asked for a personal touch. The food was all delicious and it was a welcomed surprise to receive well presented, perfectly balanced food but with decent sized side orders so my hubby was left feeling full � The cocktails were very very good as was the service, which I’d say was professional yet warm & welcoming. More...
Great food , lovely staff. Great customer service.
We had a beautiful meal last night, three years waiting for it as we don't live in the area anymore and of course the floods happened. It was like being on holiday, the atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious. Daniel gave us a guided tour of the spa and swimming pool after our meal. We look forward to coming again soon. Thank you. More...
Can’t recommend enough - our friend who struggles with mobility due to a stroke was with us - everyone was helpful/friendly - nothing was too much trouble, from the moment we arrived to having a manicure, eating in the restaurant, and when we left. We definitely will be going back. Thank you for a lovely day � More...
Myself and my boyfriend were in Carlisle for a couple of days away and as a Birthday treat we booked in for brunch and a massage. From the moment we arrived we fell in love with the place. Eggs benedict and bacon pancakes were amazing, perfect portion size for brunch. I had a hot stone massage and my boyfriend had a back, neck and shoulder massage which were brilliant! Staff were so friendly and chatty and had such good customer service, we felt really welcomed and well looked after all day. We didn’t want to leave. Shame there is no accommodation as an option but won’t stop us recommending the place or coming back again! Thank you for having us!! More...
Hired the pool with my husband and children. Loved it. We will definitely be coming back
