We are now taking bookings for Spring / Summer 2021. You can book directly or via AirBnB. May 2021 and we’ve just had the final “Big Push” to get the cabin ready.
The standard Booking Fee includes linen and normal cleaning costs. Our standard rate is £125/night, £300/weekend and £750/week.
Flashman’s Retreat is not the Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur (see: Flashman and the Great Game). At the same time it’s definitely better than a cabin on board the Balliol College with Captain John Charity Spring (see: Flash for Freedom!).
It’s a cabin. And if that’s what you’re looking for, we’re sure you’ll love it!
