Ever since moving to Derry Duff, we have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm from any visitors we have had. We wanted to make it possible for more people to share in our beautiful corner of the world. We have designed and built a unique, stylish, luxury lodge, overlooking a small lake so we can invite guests to enjoy stunning mountain views, the wild landscape, peace, calm and our organic produce. The Hidden Haven offers a boutique farm stay experience with guest services – the ideal place to take your foot off the pedal, relax and unwind, immersed in nature on a working organic farm. The Irish Independent selected The Hidden Haven as part of their FAB 50 list of the Best Places to Stay in Ireland for 2023.
The lodge has been designed with relaxation and comfort in mind; it is spacious, stylish, light-filled and restfully decorated, with a focus on high quality, Irish made and eco products. The lodge has a large open plan kitchen, dining, living area with vast windows with far reaching views, and double doors leading out to a BBQ and eating space. The spacious bedroom with a super king size bed and organic cotton sheets, opens onto a deck which sits over a small lake. There is a large walk in wardrobe with ample storage and the bathroom has a huge rain shower, as well as a bath with a view. An undercover porch leads into a boot room area, with a heated towel rail for drying wet gear and wellies in multiple sizes.
We understand how valuable it is to relax and unwind when on holiday and we aim to assist you in this important goal by delivering a large breakfast hamper to you on your first morning, full of locally produced, home grown and home made food, sufficient to last for your stay. Your lodge will be cleaned daily, should you wish and we offer a laundry
service. We will be on hand to provide a messaging concierge service. Should you wish to dine out and enjoy a drink with your meal, we can arrange taxis. The lodge has a fully equipped kitchen with a DeLonghi coffee machine and grinder and NutriBullet blender. There is a Sonos speaker but no TV. A wood fired hot tub is being installed in the first week of December 2023.
With the basics taken care of, you can serenely savour a coffee on the deck with the water lapping beneath you. Take a long soak in the large ‘tub with a view’. Read a book in the swivel chair surrounded by mountains or cosy up on the squishy sofa by the wood burning stove and play games. Cook up some Derry Duff Dexter steaks on the BBQ. Take a stroll round the organic farm, pick some blueberries, meet the chickens or hike further up the mountain to introduce yourself to the Dexter cattle. Farm tours are available so you can learn about the regenerative farming techniques used, to produce organic, nutritious food for the local market. There are also plenty of interesting things to do in the local area and an activity list is provided in the lodge.
The lodge sleeps a maximum of two adult guests in a super king size bed. We have a three night minimum stay. As the lodge is located on a working farm with livestock, we cannot accept pets. Please note that the lodge is in a very remote location and a car is recommended. Check in is from 4pm and check out is 11am. Prices vary according to the season and all prices include the cost of the breakfast hamper.
