    The accommodation is a beautiful family-owned stately home that has been refurbished to a beautiful standard stay-in, keeping its original features. There are no en-suite bedrooms because of this.

    The rooms are sumptuously decorated to a very high standard. They are all spacious, luxuriously decorated in amazing fabrics, and have beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It has a classic feel so you will feel spoiled yet it also feels homely so you can completely relax and switch off.

    The house has a huge, welcoming lounge with cozy sofas and an open fire. The dining room is light and airy with fabulous views of the grounds. There are fascinating paintings and fresh flowers everywhere. Built in 1908, in striking sandstone, it stands grandly at the end of a long drive flanked with lime trees. It is a world away from the everyday and is a place that will leave you feeling relaxed and positive.

    It is a family home, a wedding venue, and now a yoga retreat venue, and so it continues to bring people together. It was bought in 1979 by the same family who own it now and have carefully restored the house and manicured its beautiful gardens to its present glory.

    The retreat is very private and the yoga studio looks out onto the terrace, gardens, and extensive countryside. It is the perfect place to relax, switch off, and feel that you are being looked after for a relaxing and revitalizing weekend yoga break.

    On this New year yoga retreat, the classes are suitable for all abilities, from beginners to intermediate and advanced levels. Everyone is welcome. There is a range of inspiring and experienced teachers who are well practised at adapting the class for everyone’s level.

    Whether it be Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Ashtanga, Sivananda, Yin or others, all classes cover pranayama, asanas and meditation to help increase oxygen flow, balance, clarity and to promote a peaceful mind. Morning sessions are a more dynamic practice and the evening sessions are gentle with lots of stretches, meditation and relaxation.

    The retreat begins at 4 p.m. on the 28th of December with time to settle in before the first yoga class at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m. New Year’s Eve has it’s own special New Year schedule. The New Year schedule is extra special and a surprise! On booking, AdventureYogi will send you the full new year itinerary. The retreat ends at 12 p.m. on Monday morning after a yoga class and breakfast.
