About Guitar Retreats

Guitar Retreats began life in 2008 as a fun weekend arranged for friends and colleagues who wanted to play the guitar but felt constricted by work, family life and lack of free time. So we hired a holiday home, all piled in with food and drink and we taught the group to play a few chosen songs together over the course of the weekend. It was such a success and so much fun that we repeated it and more and more people wanted to join us!

So here we are now 12 years on, dozens of events and hundreds of budding guitar players have been on our retreats, we continue to grow and thrive with new ideas and longer more exotic retreats. We now also offer vocal coaching, performance skills and songwriting courses. We have a steady core of regular customers who come back again and again for the fun and the camaraderie.

We aim to provide a stress free environment where you will have the time to learn, play and practise and jam in the company of like-minded people.

Getting there is part of the adventure and we offer you magical locations and special places to experience.

We have always believed in providing a fun first, laughing and learning ethic. We choose excellent teachers with an ego free approach to improving your playing, singing and performing. Think of our guitar retreats as a club where you can come and meet old friends and make new ones, pick up a few tips and indulge your favourite pastime to the full in beautiful locations across the UK and Europe.
