"Surpassed all expectation "

Suzy and Philip have put their heart and soul into every aspect of Sunny Brow. It’s a really special place where loving care runs like a thread through every aspect. Suzy went out of her way to make sure everything was uniquely tailored. I arrived frazzled and left feeling the most relaxed for ages. Can’t wait to return.

"Relax, Restore and Renew"

I loved the location, healthy (and tasty) nourishing food, clean accommodation but most of all Suzy‘s holistic therapies. The bespoke package was great, enabling me to have exactly the experience I needed to relax, restore and renew. Suzy and Philip are great hosts.

"Perfect"

Myself and my daughter have just had the most perfect few days away at this lovely little idyll. Fabulous yoga sessions in the yurt in the woods with the sounds of the birds singing and the water flowing in the brook. Our meals were bespoke and absolutely delicious. Our two hour massage was just heaven and the cottage we stayed in was beautiful and warm and cosy. Can't recommend this gem enough.

"Restorative yoga retreat "

Suzy is an amazing yoga teacher and a wonderful healer ! She includes a massage in the retreat but it really is a healing treatment, it’s very special and it would be worth to go just for that:)

The food was great, the cottage very nice. Perfect to restore and relax. I will come back !

"Sunny Brow- Perfect in every way"

My first time at a yoga retreat and it was an amazing experience. I have never been so relaxed and can’t thank Suzie and her team enough for making it such a wonderful experience. The massages and treatments were the best I have ever had- anywhere! I am already looking at booking my next one at Sunny Brow. Value for money was outstanding.

"Lot more than I expected"

It was my first retreat and due to the pictures on the homepage I had some expectations. However, the accommodation, the yoga, the staff, the other treatments, the surroundings, the food, everything exceeded my expectations. It was a fantastic experience.

"A Transformational Experience "

This was a very special experience. The accommodation, food and setting were all outstanding. The yurt used for yoga and meditation was a special place, especially for meditation - in the woods by a babbling brook. It was, however, too hot and too small for the number of people for some yoga poses. Having said that, a new yoga studio is under construction and so this will soon be resolved.

My massages with Suzy were amazing and deeply spiritual experiences. The meditations with Jyoti were truly inexplicable journeys - I meditate regularly but it has never been like this.

I went on the retreat as part of my recovery from very serious mental health problems. The healing work that was woven was more effective than an private or NHS medical treatment I've had in the past two years.

I can't praise Sunnybrow Farm highly enough - so much so that I've already booked to go back later in the year

"Nurturing for body, mind and soul"

Gentle, nourishing and warm atmosphere in a stunningly beautiful setting. Calming and healing yoga practices in the cosy wood-burner-heated woodland jurt. Nourishing, abundant and yummy macrobiotic food. A massage so caring and relaxing I fell asleep. Affirming insights from Suzy's soul reading. And a respectful, warm and enjoyable group of fellow 'retreatees'. This is a special place, where the body can recoup and the soul can rest a while, surrounded by beauty. Thank you Suzy (and Hanka and Phil) for these precious things you've given. I returned home replenished. <3

"couples retreat "

Suzy's attention to detail and the care with which she delivers everything (be it yoga, dinner or massages) was hugely appreciated. Had a lovely stay!

"Recent stay"

I have just returned from Sunny Brow

It was a truly life changing experience. Set in beautiful woodlands the accommodation was first class.

Everything was top quality.

The yoga was tailor made to our requests twice a day.

Food was just amazing- home cooked with an amazing array of natural organic ingredients. Cooked by owner Suzy and Hanka. Both talented and passionate about the food they feed you- and lots of it too.

Owners Suzy and Phil are so passionate and skilled about their home and go out of their way to ensure your stay is perfect.

I made some amazing new friends and my memories will last forever.

I cannot recommend Sunny Brow highly enough and I can’t wait to return

"A special time for me"

I loved the location, which was quiet and beautiful. Yoga/meditation in the yurt to the sound of a running stream. Suzy is a fantastic instructor, very genuine, down to Earth and yet also intuitive. Her food was amazing. Bracken Barn was a perfect retreat for me, where the high-spec conversion combining natural materials/colours with creature comforts provided a perfect back drop to my stay. On top of my yoga package I also had a soul reading session which made the whole time at Sunny Brow Farm very special. I would certainly come again

"Idyllic yoga retreat in the Lake District"

A beautiful barn conversion in the heart of the Lake District, within easy reach of Hawkshead, Coniston and Ambleside. The farm is surrounded by scenic woodland for you to explore at your leisure. You receive a lovely warm welcome from Suzy and Phillip as you are shown to your luxury barn conversion. Each barn has a shared bathroom, living accommodation, kitchen and dining area. The members of the yoga retreat eat together in the Old Dairy, as this is the largest kitchen/dining area, making it easy to get to know each other.

Yoga and meditation sessions, as well as some massages, are conducted in the large yurt by Suzy and Jyoti. Both have a wealth of yoga and meditation experience and provide holistic and spiritual guidance during the week. They are always on hand for a chat and the family really make you feel relaxed and part of their little community. The group are encouraged to share their thoughts and feelings, however you can contribute as much or as little as you want.

The brunch and dinner are served in the dining area of the Old Dairy, as well as outside if the weather permits. The food is excellent home cooked hearty meals – brunch is two courses and dinner is three courses. These are all lovingly prepared by Suzy and Jyoti, with many recipes in Suzy’s published cookbook.

You also have time to yourself to explore the surrounding area, or do absolutely nothing if you wish. The week is planned, but it is a very relaxed schedule, designed to accommodate all members.

"A truly exhilarating retreat "

From the moment you enter into Sunny Brow Farm it is very clear that a lot of love goes into the development and running of this retreat. There are some sheep grazing, a few pigs, dogs and cats that you would expect to find around a farm that make wonderful sounds that would otherwise be a very quiet secluded space. You can walk to the drunken duck pub about 0.8 miles away or into Hawkshead about 20 mins walk, otherwise the places like Ambleside and Windermere are all within a short drive.

The accommodation is modern, clean with super comfortable beds.

Now onto the food; Suzy and Jyoti managed to make up some of the most amazing foods I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. It was very much seasonal, healthy, nutritional and absolutely 5* top quality. I suffer from allergies and they went the extra mile to cater for my requirements.

The yoga retreat was amazing, we were fortunate to have a fantastic group of 7 in total. There was yoga in the morning followed by brunch, free time then more restorative in the evening with an amazing meal to follow. The treatments are highly recommended also and great value for money. I can honestly say 100% that there will be a return to Sunny Brow and would recommend to anyone and you will not be disappointed.

Suzy has managed to establish such a beautiful intimacy between human to human, human to animals, and human to nature. She opens your eyes to see love everywhere in your life. This is a experience that will stay with you for a long time.

massage, yoga, meditation- all amazing and helped me to restore an recharge

"Perfect. Tailored to my deepest needs. "

I felt at ease with Suzy from the moment I arrived at Sunny Brow Farm. She is warm and welcoming, and within 10 minutes of arrival I knew that I would benefit hugely from her ability to empathise and connect at a deep level.

All our work together was 1-2-1 and Suzy worked with compassion and love throughout. She tailored the yoga, meditation, healing and massage to my individual needs each day.

Suzy’s cooking is all about nourishment and it was heaven to be waited on with the most comforting home-made soups , fresh bread, seasonal vegetarian dishes, and healthy desserts. Each morning yoga session was followed by a scrumptious brunch ( wild mushrooms on sourdough with kale / fresh pancakes with berries, pecans and honey) eaten al fresco with views of the beautiful farmland and sheep. There is a small stream running through the woodland, and over the little bridge is a winding path leading to a yurt and a fireside gathering space.

My accommodation was beautiful and airy, with quality furnishings. The living space was comfortable and relaxing, with tv, dvd collection, sound system. My bedroom had a sense of simplicity that was very restorative and peaceful. The bathroom was luxurious and spacious.

I am truly thankful that Suzy and Phil were able to provide me with a beautiful space where I could retreat and restore at a really difficult time in my life. Suzy really commits to communication at a deep level and was able to guide me on my journey. I am truly grateful.

"Relaxing retreat"

The location is just heavenly, so quiet, peaceful and beautiful settings. I feel that all levels and abilities were catered for in the yoga. I especially enjoyed the yoga actually outside amongst the trees and the sound of rippling water in the background. What could be better for a therapeutic experience. The food was all freshly prepared and tasted amazing. Suzy was very attentive and made me feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend a visit to anyone looking for a relaxing retreat for the mind, body and spirit.

"Just switch off "

Absolutely lovely host. Suzy was very welcoming and a joy to have as a yoga tutor. The yut was a wonderful experience too. I adored the meditation and the sounding, which was a new experience for me and one I will continue to practice. Clare’s massage was amazing and I didn’t want it to end!

The rooms are beautiful and done to a very high standard, and the surroundings are so pretty and peaceful. You could not fail to feel relaxed here and I would recommend it to anyone 🥰

"Yoga chill out at Sunny Brow farm"

Yoga in a yurt surrounded by nature is a brilliant idea. The massage by Suzy is highly recommended. The walks were a good workout and the views were stunning. We were served delicious vegan food.

Susanne Mead

"Amazing"

The location, the accommodation, the hospitality, the yoga and the additional therapies were perfect above and beyond what I had hoped for. I left positive, rejuvenated and on new journey in my life steered by Suzy, this retreat was an amazing experience that will stay with me for life or until I can get back for a continuation of the soul searching I have started. Would I recommend? Absolutely, without hesitation.

"A pocket of peace in a frenetic world"

Suzy is an inspirational, positive teacher. She created a wonderful atmosphere. We absolutely loved the yoga in the yurt beside a babbling brook. Hannah’s vegan food (a first for me), was lovingly prepared, delicious and plentiful. The barn is renovated to a high spec, enhanced by a cosy log burner each evening. My daughter and I loved every minute, and will definitely return.

"Amazing Experience "

We cannot fault our stay at Sunny Brow. Suzy is a brilliant, caring hostess and yoga instructor. The 2 hour couples massage was outstanding and the yoga and meditation in the yurt truly enlightening. Lovely location and the accommodation spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Loved every minute of our stay and would highly recommend.

"Idyllic retreat in beautiful location"

Very restorative week spent with like minded people under the guidance of welcoming and intuitive hosts. The mix between yoga sessions, food and free time was perfect. The accommodation has been tastefully renovated with considerable thought and finished to high standard. Additional treatments available which were well worth a bit extra.

Highly recommended!
