“Brilliant venue for family/friends get together!” 10 of us plus a dog stayed in this barn in February 2016 for a walking holiday. It's a great space for a get-together. The owners were very helpful when it came to arranging keys/parking. The barn is basic with camping tables and a wood burner downstairs and one big open space for sleeping upstairs. There is no shower just cold running water. You need to take the usual equipment you would take camping, including stoves, minus the tent! I would recommend a warm sleeping bag if like us you are staying in February as there is no heating upstairs. Excellent venue for walking, booked the Royal Oak in Wetton for food, another good pub at Hulme End. Note on car access: there is parking for 2 or 3 small cars next to the Barn, the track is not one I would recommend driving down if you have a low sports car, my Yaris only just managed it!
“Switch off your mobiles, computers and breathe” As a well-travelled couple, we have been for business and pleasure to various hotels and family run businesses in different part of Europe however DDG Retreat is definitively something else. Olga and Sacha have brought to life a corner of Andalusia making DDG Retreat the perfect escape to busy life and stress. The Gibraltar rock stands proud on the far away sea, a strong reminder Africa is a stone throw away. Mountains and plains as far as the eye can see will satisfy the born-adventurer in you. Coming back to the retreat, areas are divided into intimate spaces catering for the most demanding of guests. The luxuriant plants and trees at the heart of this divine place give a Caribbean feel to your holidays while vultures dancing above your heads make you truly feel in the midst of nature. Breakfasts and dinners are second to none, so treat yourself to date night with your partner in this romantic venue where you will be attended by the most discreet yet pleasant staff.
“Fantastic active family holiday” We had a great time here, the owner couldn't do enough for us, the tent was exceptional. We found plenty of activities to entertain the whole family close by, cycling, horse riding, beach, excellent walks. And after a strenuous day what better way to end than a bbq and relax in the hot rub!!!
