- “Lovely spot, very serene. They have horseback riding, river rafting, lectures and discussions. Quite an honor to be invited; they're very stimulating events. So I'm told.”
- ―Rupert Giles[src]
The Watchers Retreat was an event held every year in the Cotswolds, England by the Watchers Council. It was considered a great honor to be invited and events included horse riding, hiking, and lectures. Despite being assigned Watcher duties to Slayer Buffy Summers, Rupert Giles was never invited to the retreat.
