Living in cave would have been appealed to you; Rockhouse Retreat might make you change your tune. The Cave is located in rural Worcestershire, England. The exclusive locale is built into a Triassic sandstone escarpment near the Wyre Forest. Therefore, as a residence, a long history of cave was occupied for more than 700 years before it was abandoned in 1962 and reverted back to its natural state. In 2015, enthusiast and owner Angelo Mastropietro pick a unique idea and spent almost $230,000 to restore it into a romantic, secluded getaway.
The 6700-square-foot Rockhouse blends modern style and comfort with the calmness of nature. Its interior features a number of comfortable upgrades that you wouldn’t expect in a cavern. However, this includes: a walk-in “rain forest” shower; heated floors in the shower-dressing room; a fully-equipped kitchen; free Wi-Fi; a music-docking station, and a Nespresso machine. Furthermore, there is an outdoor kitchen terrace with a gas grill and fire pit. Although, Mastropietro’s retreat is well-situated for those that want to spend time exploring nature. The area boasts several outdoor attractions, such as 40 kilometers of walking trails and the West Midlands Safari Park. Guests can also visit the historic riverside town of Bewdley to adore its commercial offerings. The Rockhouse Retreat is currently available to book through its website.
