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 2020
the weeks we are not running our own retreats. We are available for hire certain weeks in April,
May, June, July, August, September & October.
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.
If you book early you can choose your week & we will work around you, later on you will be able to
choose from a selection of free dates.
The retreat is equipped for all weather conditions.
As experienced Yoga Teachers ourselves we really understand the demands of holding a safe &
comfortable 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 .
