Retreat Homes & Lodges Limited began building lodges in October 2004. The Managing Director Alan Rooke and Production Manager Trevor Lawson have been instrumental in managing the growth of these construction activities since inception. Prior to this they were both involved with lecturing and training construction students at Carlisle College for a combined total of 47 years. This has enabled them to select a highly skilled workforce with the majority of our employees having been trained by ourselves.
Retreat Lodges (Manufacturing) Limited began trading after identifying a need for premium quality timber lodges individually designed to a client's specification. By January 2005 we had completed the first lodge and had been approved by the National Park Homes Council as complying with British Standard 3632 Residential Park Homes. Since then we have seen steady continued growth.
We believe this growth is due to our belief in quality design, quality build and quality finish.
