Join us for a full week retreat in this incredibly peaceful setting, just a couple of minutes outside the charming village of Hutton-le-Hole. Allow yourself the time to go deeper into practice and tap into the stillness of this beautiful countryside setting.
Barmoor Lodge is an Edwardian house on the North Yorkshire Moors with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside from every side. Bedrooms are basic but bright and airy and communal areas are cosy with open fires and big sofas. The yoga space itself is in its own building just outside the lodge and has a wooden floor, a log burner and huge windows which bathe the space in natural light. A simple garden surrounds the house with a few tall pines and picnic tables at which to sit and admire the views.
There are no single bedrooms, but you can choose from sharing in a double room, triple room or multiple room (between four and six sharing). All bathrooms are shared too. If there is someone else who has booked onto the retreat who you’d like to share with, feel free to let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate (you must both book the same type of room).
Expect seasonal, organic food which is nutritious and delicious in equal measure. Meals will include plenty of options, so you can choose to eat light if you wish but if you’ve got a good appetite, don’t worry, there’ll be plenty to fill you up. Food will be predominantly vegan, although we’ll have cow’s milk available for cups of tea etc. Food will be rustled up by the lovely Emily Evans, former chef at Purple Valley Retreat Centre.
