Accommodation

Yewfield is a luxurious and comfortable vegetarian B&B that is situated in an amazing location with a light, airy, and spacious studio ideal for yoga. There are over 80 acres of land around the house, including native woodland, rough fell pasture, a small tarn, and a stream. The grazed pasture is carefully managed, giving priority to ecological considerations. The views from the house are truly inspiring and breathtaking.

Situated in over 30 acres of its own grounds, Yewfield is an impressive country house with gothic architecture dating back to 1859. Rooms are furnished to a high standard. Double and twin rooms at Yewfield are individually appointed to a very high standard, all with en-suite bath and shower, TV / DVD, radio, and tea / coffee making facilities.

Program

There will be two yoga classes each day with Jaya. Mornings will begin with meditation and pranayama followed by a flowing Hatha class. In the evenings, there will be a shorter more restorative and slower paced yoga class. Please avoid a heavy meal 1.5 hours before the class.

Arrival time is on Thursday from 15:00 onwards. You can arrive earlier from 13:00 if you want to explore the beautiful surroundings. The first yoga session will be at 17:00. The weekend will finish in mid-morning on Sunday after yoga and breakfast.

Instructors

Jaya Jaks
Jaya teaches a dynamic flow style that combines the integrity, precision and alignment of Iyengar with the movement and breath awareness of Vinyasa. Jaya's techniques tend to suit students of varying abilities, as they can be both calming and challenging. Most important, Jaya creates a safe and nurturing environment that encourages self-discovery and non-competitiveness. She is particularly skilled at one-on-one adjustments.

Retreat location

Yewfield is ideally situated for breathtaking walks or just relaxing and enjoying the views of this exquisite region of rare natural beauty, indeed the inspiration of the Lakeland poets. Yewfield is set in a quiet elevated position with panoramic views over the Vale of Esthwaite, Lake Windermere, and the Fells beyond and just a short distance from Tarn Hows, a well known and popular destination in the Lake District.

How to get there

Driving directions from Ambleside

  • Take the A593 towards Coniston and after 0.6 miles at Clappersgate, turn left onto the B5286 towards Hawkshead.
  • After approximately 1.5 miles turn right towards Coniston, Tarn Hows, and The Drunken Duck.
  • Approximately 1.7 miles past the Drunken Duck, you will see a sign to Hawkshead Hill.
  • Drive up the hill and Yewfield is at the top on the right.

Driving directions from Hawkshead

  • Go through Hawkshead on the B5285 Ambleside Road for approximately 0.6 miles.
  • Take the left turn onto Hawkshead Hill sign posted for Brantwood.
  • Carry on up the hill for approximately 1.6 miles and turn right at the Baptist Chapel.
  • Continue along this short country lane and turn right onto the Ambleside Road and Yewfield is the second driveway on the left.

Arrival by train

To get to Yewfield, there are hourly trains running from London Euston to Windermere (changing in either Oxenholme or Preston). If you are coming by train, then let Yogakutir know what time your train gets in and they can see if anyone else is on the same train so you can share a transfer together from Windermere.

The local company is Abacus Taxis and the cost will be approximately 25 GBP. There are usually taxis at the station but please let Yogakutir know your plans and if there are lots of people arriving at the same time, they can alert the taxi company and let you know so you can share.

Alternatively, you can take a bus that goes from the station and you need to get off at Hawkshead Hill, a 5-minute walk from Yewfield. They do not run all day so you will need to check the timetable on the Cumbira buses website.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 50% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 42 days before arrival.
