The Retreat

The Jim Cronin Memorial Fund are pleased to offer this four bedroom property to charity members and Monkey World adoptive parents, and their guests.

Nestled deep within the woodland adjacent to the charity’s Education Centre, The Retreat offers peace and tranquillity for those wishing to get away from it all. This beautiful four bedroom property will provide you with a home away from home during your next trip to Monkey World and, with the option to add on an additional two bedrooms from The Hideaway, it provides the perfect solution for large groups and families wishing to spend time together in the heart of Dorset. 

With flexible accommodation, family-sized lounge, kitchen and dining room – all with the call of the gibbons from Monkey World echoing through the trees – The Retreat offers a little slice of heaven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Please note: Due to its location, this property is not suitable for those reliant on public transport.
