Yoga Retreat Venue Hire 2024 : Please only Use the form at the bottom of this page to contact us for booking the retreat center.
We have been successfully running our own yoga retreats here since 2008 & are increasingly being approached by other yoga teachers asking whether we would consider renting the space to
them for their own retreats.
We have decided to make the space available for hire for up to 20 people during 2024 the weeks we are not running our own retreats. We are available for hire certain weeks throughout the year.
We generally run our retreats starting Saturday evening & finishing Saturday morning (7 nights accommodation & 6 full days of yoga ) to fit in with bus times & to allow the day free for change over. We would ask that you plan your retreat dates within this time frame unless you are planning your retreat sometime between November & March as we have more flexibility in the low season.
The retreat is equipped for all weather conditions.
As experienced Yoga Teachers ourselves we really understand the demands of holding a safe &
nourishing space for students on retreat and as such make expert & understanding hosts.
If you are new to holding your own retreats & have any concerns or need any advice we are more
than happy to help you out.
We will keep out of your way & leave you to get on with things but One or both of us will be
discreetly onsite at all times incase you need any assistance .
