Redefining a Lifestyle

About Relais Retreats

The Relais Retreats are there for our guests.


Our Mission

We are redefining a lifestyle for discerning travellers, through a new brand of English waterside escapes infused with a worldly point of view and located within two hours of London. 

The Relais Retreats are there for our guests, like the familiar home of a cherished friend, offering hospitality, entertainment and nourishment for body and soul. Places to unwind, relax and indulge your senses. Telling the stories of our locations, elevating nostalgic Englishness with a well-travelled mindset. 

Our waterside retreats will redefine the easy restorative escape, setting the scene for new traditions and stories yet to be told.

The Relais vision is to create a new style of living, defined through a curated collection of retreats in evocative waterside settings.

Our Values



Professional English hospitality that is personal, warm and genuine.


Our retreats and our people are integrated within the community and positively contribute to the rhythm of life in our destinations. Where possible, we work with local partners and suppliers in creating a sense of place and authentic experiences for our guests. 


Kind and mindful gestures encourage a sense of well-being, inspiring our guests to feel happier and healthier, and to return time and again. 


Our English locations are elevated by a well-travelled, culturally open mindset that infuses our operations, from design to menus to how we act towards our international clientele.


We create the sense of staying in the familiar home of a cherished friend, where guests feel at ease, relaxed and just as connected as they want to be.
