Natural Retreats offers luxurious self-catering holidays in areas of breathtaking natural beauty.

Launched in 2006 by founder and CEO Matt Spence on his family land in the Yorkshire Dales, the company features four additional stunning UK locations including Fistral Beach and Trewhiddle Cornwall, West Highlands Scotland and Llyn Peninsula Wales, plus three further beautiful properties across Ireland.

An exciting project to completely transform and revitalise one of Scotland’s best-known destinations, John O’Groats, is set to open in summer 2012. Alongside leading tourism partners Heritage GB and Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), Natural Retreats is creating 19 luxurious apartments and 23 standalone holiday residences. The development is underpinned by strong sustainability principles including the use of locally-sourced materials and trades, green-build techniques and using local contractors and tradesmen. In 2011 the company also expanded to the US and the beautiful South Fork Lodge on the banks of the Snake River in Idaho. Located in the heart of North America’s pristine wilderness, Natural Retreats has worked with the Rockefeller family to make South Fork Lodge a luxurious, traditional American experience. Natural Retreats has aspirations to open up to 40 sites across North America and has recently opened new sites at the wonderful Hot Springs in Virginia.

The flagship site in the Yorkshire Dales offers cutting-edge, sustainable design and luxury.
