There are five tents at The Gathering situated in the old sheep croft and kitchen garden, all with fabulous views of Grindslow Knoll, which joins the famous Kinder Scout. The tents are named after sheep breeds which you will see around you in the pasture: Swaledale, Gritstone, Ryeland, Portland, and Masham. The tents are made with natural materials, much of them recycled by local craftsmen from old farm implements and furniture.
One of the larger tents is wheelchair friendly. The tent is heated by the loven stove, for which you will be supplied with a basket of wood daily. The stove has a cooking hob and roasting oven.

Below the garden is Grindsbrook, a rocky moorland stream in dappled woodland which kids love to explore. There are steps down to the stream and a bonfire area which can comfortably hold a group of 20 for magical evenings.
All guests have open access to the Gathering Barn in the farmyard. This is a beautiful gritstone barn built in 1881 and it is now converted into a tasteful and comfortable gathering place for rainy days and party occasions.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to reconnect with nature and to honor your inner goddess. It will also be a week where you will have precious mindful time with your child or children in beautiful surroundings where they can climb trees, build dens, and run wild!
During this retreat, the week will start from Monday to Sunday with classes from Tuesday to Saturday. For the moms, there will be a two-hour Vinyasa flow class each morning, while the children are taken off to forest school.

This retreat will be focused in the Pachamama theme. "Pachamama" is the local name used by indigenous people in the Andes for Mother Earth. She is the goddess of fertility and presides over planting and harvesting, and has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain all life on earth. She embodies the mountains and the boles of great trees, rivers, streams, and the swelling ocean.
The forest school is for children of all ages and can be described as an inspirational process that offers children opportunities to achieve and develop confidence through hands-on learning in a woodland environment. Your little one’s curiosity will be encouraged as will exploration with all of the senses, empowering children in the natural environment, and encouraging spatial awareness and motor development. The location provides ample opportunity to spark your child’s interest in the natural world, surrounded by mountains, woods, and streams. As well as forest school children will have the opportunity to go on nature walks and maybe even feed the lambs!
During this retreat, yoga classes will be Vinyasa flow style in the mornings and Yin and Restorative yoga for the evenings.

Opale has trained all over the world including India, France, and Ibiza, and she has been practicing yoga since 1995. She studied Iyengar yoga focused on alignment, restorative, and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga focused, on Udjaih breath and bandhas. Opale also studied Indian philosophy, did a Vipassana meditation retreat in India, and practiced Pranayama with Emil Wendels. In 2015, she was certified to teach integrated yoga and mindfulness after a teacher’s training course with Hugh Plouton.
Kerry has lots of experience and training in the UK and India teaching Vinyasa flow, Reiki, natural life coaching, among other talents. She is light with playful notes, but also with a warrior spirit. Through her own awakening, she has been studying women's healing practices for many years. Kerry guides movement and tools that allow women to remember who they are and be in the space of how that feels. Kerry will lead awakening Vinyasa flow sessions and gentle women's wisdom.
Jessie provides professional massages and other treatments. She is a pleasure to be around and has the added bonus of magic hands and the strength of a shot-putter.
Set in the beautiful wilderness if the Peak District National Park, this retreat will take place at The Gathering Edale in Edale, United Kingdom. The pretty little village in the Hope Valley is nestled at the bottom of the mountains, surrounded by woodland, moorland, and streams. Overlooked by the Iron Age fort on Mam Tor, Edale Valley is a wide expanse of green which lies just to the south of the great gritstone and peat mass of Kinder Scout, which is usually accepted as the southern end of the Pennines.
Edale itself is a small village with just over 300 residents and is a popular center for walkers and hikers since it lies in a beautiful setting below Kinder Scout, the start of the Pennine Way, England’s first and most famous long-distance footpath. The valley is served by the railway, a factor which may be less important than it used to be but which played its part in making Edale accessible to Manchester and Sheffield, and London is only just over three hours.
The gathering is at Grindslow House, a Victorian shooting lodge where the estate has farmed sheep for centuries. Traditionally the shepherds in Edale Valley would gather at Grindslow House to bring down the sheep off the open moors for shearing and sorting. The gathering of the sheep would take place about four times a year and involve all the farmers in the valley. There are still sheep on the farm today.

It is guaranteed that all the food will be delicious and nutritious, and there will be plenty of child friendly options. There are two great pubs in Edale as well as fantastic earth-fired pizzas available within walking distance if you feel like doing your own thing.
An hour’s walk or a ten minute drive there are four show caves open to the public in and around Castleton: Peak Cavern, Speedwell Cavern, Treak Cliff Cavern, and Blue John Mine. Castleton is awash with them and that is just over the hill.
Edale is teeming with great mountain bike routes right from the village. Please see the maps in the tents for routes. The Gathering has a couple of spare bikes available.
The Edale and Ollerbrook Booth route is circular and it takes 10 minutes to get there and 15 minutes to get back. You can head down the lane in front of the Nags Head Pub, across the old stone packhorse bridge and up the steps into the meadow, and arrive to Ollerbrook Booth where you will see a pretty collection of cottages and farms.
Car-free cycle routes, stately homes, fishing, rock-climbing, mountain biking, paragliding, lidos, and rivers. All the activites are within a quick drive or train ride from The Gathering. You can take a 10-20 minute drive on the train from Edale to Hathersage to visit The Lido, Hathersage, a great pool for kids and grown-ups with a fabulous grassy area for lounging.
It opened originally in 1936, and now it is a fabulous 33 meter lido heated to 29 degrees. It offers large shallow end plus areas to sunbathe, hot showers, and changing rooms. You can also visit Chatsworth, one of England’s finest stately homes and a top visitor attraction in the area. Visit the house and grounds or simply stroll through the park for free. There is always something going on like evening events and concerts.
It is also suggested to visit David Mellor, one of England’s finest manufacturers and designers of modern cutlery, kitchen knives, tableware, and kitchenware. You can visit the extraordinary factory, exquisite kitchen shop, and try a very good café.
The Moorland Center is in the heart of the village. It is a good place to get acquainted with the area, with some interactive displays about the fauna and wildlife up on the moors. There is also a great supply of maps for all sorts of activities in the area alongside postcards and local gifts.
This is a circular route that allows an hour exercise to strengthen the legs. It is a good climb up the stone path to The Nab for those with strong legs, but perfectly suitable for energetic children.
The walk begins at the end of Grindslow’s drive just across Grindsbrook, a stream that tumbles down from the heights of Kinder Scout and over the sheep-cropped pasture of Grindsbrook Meadows. The village has two pubs, two cafes, a post office and shop, a small school, a playground, active church and a village hall.
This retreat includes one relaxing treatment to ease you into the pace of the week. Additional treatments are available upon request for an additional cost.
When you make your booking let The Gathering know which direction you are coming from and they will send you detailed directions. Edale is approximately one hour from whichever motorway you leave, M6, or M1 from North or South.
Please book your flight to arrive at Manchester Airport (MAN).
Upon arrival to Manchester Airport (MAN), you can take the train to Manchester Piccadilly mainline station and change trains to Edale. It is an hour and a half journey. Edale is well connected by trains since a small two carriage train connects the valley between the cities of Sheffield and Manchester and it takes approximately 30 minutes to either city.
Both Sheffield and Manchester are just over two hours from London. It is a three and a half hours trip by train from London to Edale via Manchester or Sheffield with usually a 20 minute changeover.
