About this retreat
CUMBRIA – THE LAKE DISTRICT
Our Cumbria retreat villa is a magnificent abode, affording superb views across the immaculately manicured grounds, to the fells beyond. World-famous for its beautiful lakes and mountainous landscape, this is the perfect retreat destination for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts.
This retreat venue was built with comfort and relaxation in mind; rooms are adorned with deep cushioned seating to sink into and relax, whilst the large oak dining table comfortably seats a large group – ready to tuck into dinner after an evening yoga session.
For those who fancy some me-time away from group, the original fireplace at the front of the house now offers a wealth of wood panelling – creating a wonderful snug cove for catching up with your favourite literature or planning your next hike.
Each bedroom is individually designed to reflect the location, the heritage, and beauty of the area. Rooms are completed with soft furnishings, including top quality mattresses and luxurious linens to ensure a restful night’s sleep. Each room is accompanied by a tiled ensuite bath or shower room.
There is also ample parking for those who wish to travel by car.
As well as the whole of the Lake District, also now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cumbria includes the Eden Valley, the North Pennines, the Furness Peninsula, and a small part of the Yorkshire Dales – offering endless hike-routes for those who want to appreciate the beautiful natural environment.
Also within close proximity are a number of popular towns, including: Ambleside of Windermere lake and Keswick on Derwentwater. You can find out more about all that the area has to offer via the Visit Cumbria website.
All of our retreats are pitched towards all levels of yoga – from newcomers to skilled yogis – our Retreat Leaders will always adapt classes to accommodate the abilities of our attendees.
During our retreats, guests will enjoy Vinyasa Flow, Restorative and Yin yoga sessions along with meditative elements. Your retreat leader will run two yoga sessions daily, in the morning where guests will undertake a more dynamic class and in the evening where the focus will be around relaxation (see example itinerary: Alpine Retreat Itinerary). All classes are optional and aim to rejuvenate our guests, whilst also helping you to build on your practice.
This retreat will be led by wellness expert and yoga teacher of 25 years, Jennifer Ellis (view profile).
We believe that on a retreat our guests should eat well and plentifully and therefore we employ a private chef to cater for your meals. Our recipe creator will cook a range of healthy and delicious meals using fresh, local produce and a buffet brunch will be available every morning until 12.
During the retreat, guests will also enjoy one evening meal at a local authentic restaurant.
Our meals are vegetarian and pescatarian. We are happy to accommodate food preferences or allergens where possible, though specific dietary requirements will incur a small surcharge of £50.
(This is because many specialist products i.e. gluten free / vegan are not easily available in retreat locations and thus need to be sourced further afield.)
For each of our retreats, we handpick our favourite excursions to help you explore your surroundings and have unique and memorable experience. Excursion information will be available after booking and we are more than happy to assist you booking onto external trips.
