"A great retreat "

I loved the overall concept put together by Carla and Debbie. The yoga sessions along with the food and the overall atmosphere were well aligned. It was well thought through as the yin yoga session were well adopted to the overall topic of detox. The postures that we did were well aligned to further help detox along with the well chosen food every day.

The yoga alignment sessions then help to improve your practice.

The fantastic massage that was included was very appreciated by everyone to reset your body and mind for the sessions to come to be able to really deepen the practice.

The 1:1 session in the end rounded up the whole experience. I am able to have a nice well balanced home practice that supports effectively the areas of my body that I feel I should be more mindful focusing in my practice. Thank you for a great experience!

"Caring, creative and inspiring"

I felt immediately cared for, and felt that both the group leaders sustained that throughout the week; and with the comfortable accommodation, especially delicious food, and with the thoughtful and creative yoga sessions, I had a very enjoyable and inspiring week.

"Great hosts, well designed programme, good company "

Varied programme with lots of exercise. An excellent detox diet, never felt hungry once.

The other ladies were great company. It was good being with other like minded folk and to be in a supportive environment.

I have never been on such a long programme before but the time flew.

Really enjoyed the experience and lost inches. Result.

"A relaxed, cosy getaway "

The week was very well organised so all attendees didn't need to plan. Each day was carefully laid out with a perfect balance of yoga and downtime.

The food was delicious, all plant based, with recipes for us to take home. Cooking workshops were included for us to practice some easy & healthy options too.

The rooms were very cosy and comfortable, allowing us to have personal time away if we needed. There was also a hot-tub and a large living room so we could spend time with others on the retreat if desired.

A massage was included within the package, which was a perfect add on to a relaxing week.

We did a wide range of yoga with some pilates and meditation also. We learned a lot about the different types of practices/postures and we were taught how to conduct our own self-practice when we get home. Tailored exercises were given to help us build our individual practices. Each yoga class was accommodating of all levels.

Carla & Debbie did an amazing job at looking after us and making sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing week. I would definitely recommend and I'd love to go again!

"Fantastic retreat, recommend without hesitation "

Food, rooms and yoga studio were fantastic. Carla took care of everything with perfect attention to detail. I’ve never felt so welcome and so looked after. The structure of each day was perfectly tailored to our needs and also flexible. Debbie was very knowledgable and her teaching gentle yet firm. She helped me to improve my practice massively and by the end had me doing postures I’d never tried before. The hot tub was a real treat. The massage included as part of the retreat was the icing on the cake. A real reset for me ... I’ve come home relaxed and inspired to develop my yoga practice further.

"Fabulous getaway"

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived, Carla is a wonderful host welcoming and efficient. Jacqueline the Yoga instructor was introduced to us all at the meet and greet on arrival and from then on they couldn't do enough for us. Plenty of hot drinks available throughout the day and so much delicious food that it wasn't possible to feel hungry even for all the yoga classes that we did. Rooms were spotlessly clean and beds really comfy. Didn't want to leave at the end of the 3 days. Will definately be booking again.

"Didn't want to leave! "

Everything was better than we had expected! The food was delicious! A lot of the meals were vegan and we were surprised how much we loved them, I want the recipes so I can make them at home! The accommodation was lovely and comfortable, and there were nice areas you could relax in, in between classes. Carla was on hand for anything we needed throughout our stay, and Jacqueline the yoga teacher was very friendly and knowledgeable! She also gives a great massage, if you get a chance to have one, definitely worth it! In our spare time we went on a walk nearby but there are loads of walks near. Huge range of herbal teas, healthy snacks etc you can have any time. The yoga classes were very good as there was a range of different types we explored, and doesn't matter if you are a total beginner! Definitely recommend!

"Weekend retreat"

What a fab weekend I had with my best friend at the retreat. We loved how welcoming both Carla & Jacqueline were. They put everyone at ease and made us feel very welcome immediately.

I personally liked how flexible they were with regards to the itinerary in that you were not pressured to attend all of the classes if you didn t want to.

The plant based food was delicious and Carla tried to cater for everyone’s dietary needs and we had a few!

I enjoyed trying different types of yoga that I hadn t tried before and appreciated that Jacqui gave me alternative moves for any poses I was unable to do.

As the weather was good we also took some classes in the garden which were uplifting.

Already planning on when we can go back and would definitely recommend Deighton Lodge x

"Deighton Lodge Yoga Retreat"

I thoroughly enjoyed my yoga retreat! I was particularly pleased with the lovely warm welcome from Carla on arrival and throughout the stay. She was so lovely it was more like staying at a friend's house than in paid-for accommodation.

The food was also amazing. I was a bit nervous before-hand of whether 'nutritious plant based food' would be enough to keep body and soul together for 3 days but I needn't have worried! From the Sunday dinner on the first night (stuffed butternut squash) to the range of options on the breakfast bar I loved all of it.

We were also lucky that the weather was fantastic and we were able to spend most of the free time, and some of the yoga classes, in the beautiful garden.

I also enjoyed the opportunity to have a go at some different styles of yoga that I had not done before. I felt like I learned a lot from Jackie.

"a brilliantly relaxing couple of days"

Carla was a brilliant host and made us feel very well looked after. I liked the variety of the yoga and the chance to be outside was brilliant!!

Nicola Long

Everything from the location, the weekend itinerary, the facilities, and the food was wonderful. Carla has used her enviable talents to create a peaceful, relaxing, beautiful, luxurious and unique space that makes the retreat so special. She is also such an attentive and welcoming host (fabulous cook too! 😊) I don’t feel a 10/10 would do it justice. The people I shared it with, the first class yoga tuition from Debbie and the massage just made it even better.

The Sunday Chill out session with Reiki and sound therapy was so relaxing and a welcome new experience. I also enjoyed the cookery workshop - great addition to the itinerary.

So much thought and attention to detail has evidently goes into the retreat. You genuinely feel that Carla and Debbie care about your wellbeing and there to ensure you have the most relaxing weekend.

"1st time learning yoga. Amazing! Welcoming!"

This.was the first time I have done anything to do with yoga and wanted to give myself a good basis to start. Carla and Jacqueline were very welcoming and made me feel at ease. The yoga is very varied. The food is amazing! I am not vegetarian or vegan and absolutely loved it. The snacks provided were delicious. Carla is very accommodating to peoples dietary requirements and always goes the extra mile to make sure everyone is happy. I would recommend a massage from Jacqueline as this was one of the best I have had done and definitely released tight areas.

"A very relaxing break"

Beautiful house, it has lots of outdoor space with lovely little corners where you can sit alone if you wish to have some self time and then common areas to spend time with the group. I really enjoyed this as part of the visit was to spend time alone, reset and relax. It didn't feel claustrophobic, the house is big enough to allow for everyone to have their own space. It was lovely to go out for walks or running early in the morning, we were lucky enough to have amazing weather which made it even better. My room was lovely, with a view to the fields, quiet, very comfortable bed and a great wet room.

Lovely food and snacks. Menus are plant based. Very much my kind of cooking so really happy with that! Everything was delicious.You can help yourself to herbal teas throughout the day, nice touch.

The Nidra class was very enjoyable. It was the first time for me and really helped.

I found both Carla and Jackie very welcoming.

"Can’t wait to return!! "

Just returned from a few days at the wonderful Deighton Lodge and I already can’t wait to go back. I was immediately made to feel welcome by the lovely Carla and Jacqueline the wonderful yoga instructor. There was the perfect balance of yoga and relaxation time and the lodge was idilic. Great location and surrounding area, very peaceful and the bedrooms were lovely and cosy. The yoga was amazing with a great mix of styles to suit any abilities. Both Jacqueline and Carla were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they really made me feel at home. Carla’s home cooking and snacks were just delicious! There was always plenty to eat! I would highly recommend a massage by Jacqueline also!! Thank you so much ladies for such a great few days, it was just what I needed and I can’t wait to visit you again :)

"Wonderful Yoga Retreat"

The accommodation was very good, comfortable, clean and fresh. The food was all vegetarian and excellent, with scummy little veggie snacks available all the time. Carla, our host, put me completely at ease as soon as I arrived and this was very important to me as I was travelling alone. Lovely comfortable and large ensuite room with a two seater sofa with very comfy bed. Jacqueline, Yoga instructor, was first class. I wish I lived closer to York as I would go regularly to her classes at her studio. I didn't feel pushed to do crazy asanas, I could just work at my own level. No competition in her classes!

"LOVELY RELAXING RETREAT EXPERIENCE "

Went for a 3 day yoga retreat :) had an amazing time... could have stayed longer

Food - 3 meals a day plus snacks, I brought my own snacks however didn't eat any of them because I was kept full by the meals included. All plant based and natural. I have very specific dietary requirements as I follow an anti-inflammatory diet. Carla, the owner, catered to my specific dietary requirements whilst still making absolutely delicious food and snacks - very accommodating and inclusive meals... didn't think it was possible to overindulge on healthy food but I did! 🤤🤤

Room - Double ensuite, spacious, cosy, comfortable bed, lovely bathroom facilities.

Garden and lounge space - comfortable, scenic, quiet and peaceful.

Hosts - So friendly, patient and welcoming.

Yoga - 3/4 daily sessions. Even though the yoga is more aimed at beginners/ older age clients, I learnt about yoga nidra (which I will try to continue) and feel like I did a lot of stretching and hip opening which I need, especially as I do a lot of fitness - some adaptations made. I feel like I deepened my yoga practice mentally and achieved relaxation which is just as important as the physical, much needed when living in the hustle and bustle of London.

Overall rating - 9/10

Would I come again? In a heart beat

Would you recommend to others? Most definitely.

"Fabulous yoga break at fabulous location with fabulous hosts"

It was lovely to meet Carla who made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. We felt at home straight away. The food was delicious. The facilities were wonderful, the location was so very pretty. Jackie, the yoga instructor, was great - very knowledgeable and helpful (and great fun!) I really enjoyed trying different yoga practices, loved being able to practice outside.

I would highly recommend this yoga break.

"Deighton Lodge Simply yoga"

A fabulously calming retreat which was exactly what I needed. The yoga could be as challenging as I wanted it to be. Everyone was given the care and attention they required during our yoga practice. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. Free time and yoga was perfectly balanced. Carla and Jaqueline are great hosts, friendly, approachable and knowledgable. A fantastic few days that was so much more than simply yoga.

"A relaxing retreat"

Loved the food, the accommodation has everything I needed and the yoga was divine. Carla was extremely friendly and accommodating, our yoga instructor was extremely knowledgeable and adapted the yoga to my needs. The group was small so we all had a customised yoga plan and the location was wonderful, the house over looked beautiful fields and it was just off the A1 (handy for driving).

"a wonderful wellbeing retreat"

the whole experience felt well thought through. Carla looked after us all so well and we were incredibly well fed! Debbie was very attubed to the group as a teacher and kept the styles varied and built things up each day, which really boosted my confidence in what I could do. The extra touches such as the massage, 1:1 sessions, hot tub, food recipes, goodie bags and wellbeing sessions really added value and thoughtfulness to the whole experience. Deighton Lodge is a lovely venue in a beautiful location.

"Had an amazing time"

Carla and Jacqueline were very friendly and welcoming. Carla's plant based cooking was outstanding. It was fantastic how much Yoga we manage to do in the short time we had and Jacqueline does fabulous sports massage too. The venue is warm and inviting. Another added bonus is that it is 5 minutes from McArthur Glen designer outlet.

"Perfect relaxing break "

This was my first yoga retreat and it was even better than I could have wished for. My room was luxurious; the food was plentiful, delicious and healthy; the setting was beautiful; the yoga classes were varied, engaging and challenging with an attentive and calming teacher. Carla was an excellent host and made us all feel at home.

"Good yoga break"

Carla Mitchell (owner of Deighton Lodge) is very welcoming and friendly. I joined the end of one retreat and then joined with a full day separate retreat on my final day. Everyone was lovely and welcoming. I loved making a face mask on day two and having a full body massage. I also really enjoyed the relaxation yoga. The meals were hearty and tasty. There was a hot tub available for our retreat, which some of the group enjoyed. I was able to relax and read for a while. I particularly enjoyed the yin yoga with Jackie on day three. It suited my ability. My room was well appointed and comfortable. The classes with Debbie were mixed and, even when I could not manage the exercises she was encouraging and helpful - just asking that I keep moving. A very enjoyable experience.

"My new annual January detox holiday! "

What's not to like? The food was incredible, location stunning, classes were fantastic. Carla and Debbie and Lucy could not have made us feel more like a little family if they tried! We completely crammed as much in as possible within the 3 days. I felt relaxed, rejuvenated, fit and healthy all in one. Will be returning next year with absolutely no doubt! I've even roped in a few of my friends to have a look at retreat dates. It was worth the 4.5 hour drive at 4am to get there!! Thankyou so much for this experience

"Deighton Lodge Yoga Retreat - November 2018"

I was looking for a yoga retreat that was reasonably priced, had super comfortable accommodation, and offered lots of yoga sessions as well as relaxation. The Deighton Lodge retreat was perfect!

Thank you so much to Carla, Debbie and Lucy (and your team) for the most wonderful weekend away! The full body massage was absolutely amazing and hugely appreciated after working the muscles hard through the sessions. It was lovely to also have relaxation time - I can highly recommend the lovely trail walk nearby and prosecco in the hot tub was such a treat! Thank you also to Carla for being so thoughtful and diligent preparing meals and snacks to cater for coeliac disease. I really appreciate the effort you went to and it was wonderful to be away and feel so relaxed about the meals. Carla, Debbie and Lucy are fantastic! All in all, what a great yoga weekend with a great group of people!
