An experience not to missed

There are simply no words to describe the feeling when you arrive at Bagend, the best I can think of is home.
Elliot, is a gorgeous man, with heart of gold and generosity, When you arrive, you will never want to leave and after my third visit, I've heard this many times.
Simply put go back to your basics needs and visit this place and lose your heart.

Paradise Yoga Retreat

I only have positive things to say about Bagend, Rustic Yoga Retreats. Elliot, the most wonderful host, such a generous and special person. He looked after us so well and cooked very delicious and healthy meals. The rest of the team, Andreas and James, were also really friendly and helpful. Our Yoga teacher, Brittany was fantastic! I really enjoyed the Yoga practice and workshops. She adapted the sessions according to the needs of the group and catered for all of us.
Bagend is an idilic place for a yoga retreat, I feel extremely lucky and grateful for this experience and can't wait to go back.

An amazing, intimate experience

I can't recommend this experience highly enough! From the kind, attentive hosting of Eliott and co. to the beautifully innovative, yet rustic nature of the location itself, everything was as I had hoped it would be and more. Relax, rest, energise, explore - you can do it all at Bagend!
It's not for those who want pandering and pampering, but if you want to feel part of a real, rustic "home" in the Sierras - this is the place to be. Total soul-food.

Yoga tactic retreat

Rustic retreat yoga was everything and more I could wish for. Elliot is a superb host who serves delicious vegetarian food and is charasmatic, friendly and very funny. The yoga was great and even more special because of the remote location and stunning mountain views. The pool offers a welcome reprieve from the hot sun and a perfect place to read, chat and generally replenish the body. I'll be going back for sure

Perfect week

Rustic Retreats was wonderful - an idyllic location to do yoga in the heart of the mountains. The food was incredible, the accommodation very comfortable (great first experience of off-grid living!) and there was a lovely pool. Above all, the atmosphere created by Elliot was so lovely - really friendly and homely. A perfect week of relaxation and yoga!

Abundance of joy and peace in Bagend

This was easily the best week of my life in 2015 ... and i went back a few months later! The host Elliott is a complete diamond and the yoga instructors i had were wonderful. The food is just divine, so fresh, bought from local markets and plentiful, my bowels were so healthy and if we wanted a little drink then it was not frowned upon.


Everything here is choice, if you need to sleep in and miss a session at 7am then its fine, similarly, if you want to use the amazing platform when the taught sessions are not on then you are free to do so. The pool was bliss, with a panoramic view of mountains upon mountains, you are in a secluded location and it feels so good! There is a gorgeous walk to the local village which is well worth it for a bit of spanish flare. I love the off grid approach and it makes you think about your water and electricity consumption ... living in a yogy way is the approach here. I wholeheartedly recommend a retreat here to everyone, you won't regret it. xx

Unique experience

I enjoyed my stay at rustic retreats a lot. Great people and great yoga. A very relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere. Very hot in july though! Quite simple, but they make sure to inform you why. I would recommend this for a good budget retreat.

I had one of the best weeks of my life at Rusic Retreats, left feeling like a new person!
I was glad of the balance, healthy living but could enjoy a glass of wine in the evening if you like, also came home with a tan!
Will definatly return at some point.

Perfect week

Had an absolutely wonderful time with Rustic Retreats. Really felt at home for a week and my yoga improved so much. Perfect surroundings, lovely fresh food and lovely people!

Really beautiful place in the mountains where your mind rests. You can spend your time reading under lemon and almond trees, go hiking or meditate by yourself. It is a place where you can decide to do yoga whenever you feel so. Elliott is an amazing person and he has done a lot work for building the place and keeping it ecofriendly. Just great!

Simply Beautiful!

Living 'off grid' isn't for everyone, and isn't something I have experienced before I went to Rustic Retreats. The wonderful owner Elliott is inspirational in what he has created at Bagend. Truly beautiful area, full of lemon and almond trees, such a wonderful place to ground yourself, and a perfect place to deepen your yoga and meditation practice. Comfortable accommodation, the MOST amazing vegetarian food, Elliott is also a talented cook amongst other things!


I truly found my experience at Rustic Retreats life changing, and will be forever grateful to Elliott and of course 'The Marmadukes'! I would not hesitate to recommend Rustic Retreats to anyone looking for a retreat in the true sense of the word! No fancy yoga leggings needed, and definitely pack your torch! x

Excellent, yoga, food, location,

This was a great retrear for total wind down from the everyday grind. I can honestly say I did not want to leave. I am planning on returning next year. Elliot the owner is a fabulous chef and meals were plentiful and always very tasty.

Becky the yoga teacher was very knowledgeable about all forms of yoga and meditation. I learnt so much from her. Each day was different which was great for my short attention span.

Added bonuses were the house cats, the fabulous pool, numerous fruit trees (need lemon for your tea just go and pluck one from the nearest tree) and the stars at night. I even got to see shooting stars!

Thank you Elliot, Becky and the Marmadukes for a truly memorable week!

Fantastic Week at Bagend

Bagend has some magical quality that makes just being, the easiest thing in the world. Elliot Walters is a wonderful host and an all-round amazing guy - wait till you try his watermelon curry. We went on a cave walk, an over-the mountain walk for Tapas and to Totana Market, led by Elliot and Stick. History, geography and interesting tales were provided by Elliot. Gotta love him. Thanks Elliot. Mel Melvin, the yoga teacher when I was there, was fantastic.


No matter the level anyone was at, she was supportive, encouraging, motivating, funny and well, just lovely and very real. We had the opportunity to, improve our practice; try different styles of yoga; have in-depth discussions about interesting stuff that came up in the workshops or whenever; medidate twice daily; connect with nature and ourselves via a scavenger hunt; ohm and salsa. It was so much more than yoga. Thanks Mel.
Cath and Anna, the volunteers, worked their butts off to make sure everyone was fed, watered and happy as well as DIYing, cleaning and lugging stuff up and down hills. Shelley came in twice a week to remind us that there was an outside world with cars, noise and crowds and have good blether before disappearing into the house to do outside-world, work stuff like organise retreaters travel schedules and transfers. The information and timetables supplied made the journey from Alicante airport so easy and stress free. I didn't have to ask anyone for additional info when I was in transit. Thanks ladies.

I slept like a baby in my tent, by the pool, in a hammock, so relaxed that I didn't even care/notice the bugs. Can't believe it. I met a amazing, diverse bunch of individuals including the retreaters. I felt spoilt, loved and cherished all week, with not a luxury item in sight. I left revitalised, relaxed and grounded with a handful of new friends and a renewed respect for our planet and resources.

Alicante was shiny, busy and noisy on Thursday night.

If you're looking for an off-grid, back to basics, soul-healing experience then I would highly recommend Rustic Tetreats. I am definitely going back :)

An absolutely wonderful week with a beautiful location.

I loved everything about the retreat and cannot find fault with any of it. The owner was wonderfully enthusiastic although not in an overpowering way, allowing us to take us much time to ourselves that we needed. The food was perfect and my vegan diet was catered for amazingly well. I absolutely loved the food. The yoga teacher enabled and supported lots of inner growth and a real opening in my practise. I shall never look back again with my own personal practice.
I cannot recommend this retreat any more highly. Go go go!!!!

Yoga and respite in the Spanish mountains

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2nd visit to Rustic Retreats near Totana, Murcia, Spain. I also visited last year. The chilled atmosphere, friendly yoga teacher and staff and delicious freshly prepared veggie food has left me feeling healthier and de-stressed. Trains from Alicante are clean, regular and cheap. The swimming pool is a wonderful luxury in this remote, hot and mountainous part of Spain. The glamping tents and beds are comfortable with electricity for phones etc. Great to meet fellow yogis (beginners and advanced) from the UK and other parts of the world. Hope to be back again next year. Om Shanti. Ann xx

What a magical place Rustic Retreats is! While it may not be your traditional 'luxury' retreat it is much much more than that and the experience is one that will never be forgotten. From the delicious food to the passionate yoga teachers, I cannot recommend this retreat highly enough. Not only do you learn about wellbeing and have the opportunity to revitalise your health but you also learn about sustainability and waste which everyone today should become more aware of.

Magnificent and magical Bagend;)

Aghhh magical Bagend... What a magnificent little corner of paradise hidden in the valley, surrounded by lemon and orange trees. We had an amazing time there, meditation in the morning followed by yoga on pretty much top of the mountain, it couldnt have been better - surrounded only by nature and silence, perfect spot to re energize! Must mention the delicious food, all local, veggie, organic! Would reccomend it to everyone who is a bit of nature, yoga, offgrid junkie;) thank you again for this experience Elliot, you have created an amazing place there, that i will come back to one day;)
