February Hiking and Yoga Retreat in the Lake District
Lake District, 15th - 18th February 2024
Have a change of scene this winter and stay in comfort at our Lake District yoga retreat venue and get out in nature and enjoy hiking and visiting the beautiful Lakes. Yoga twice a day and vegan food.
For a winter escape come and experience a hiking and yoga retreat in the Lake District. Stay in a cosy veggie B&B and relax in your room or by the fire. It’s a peaceful time to come to the Lake District when so much of nature is in hibernation. Time to get out into nature and connect at this time of year too. It is one of our favourite times of the year to visit as the crowds are gone and it takes on a slower pace of life.
With our qualified and very experienced mountain guides on hand to lead the day hike, and your yoga teachers to lead a more gentle yet equally as stunning walk to Tarn Howes directly from our retreat centre, immerse yourself in nature and feel the benefits of this, being away from the frenetic and urban landscape of your day to day living. Take a packed lunch and just sit and watch the world go by, or enjoy a bit of forest bathing and meditation.
Start the day with an energising yoga class and after a day’s excursions, unwind with evening yin and yoga Nidra followed by a vegan and vegetarian feast.
The hikes on this hiking yoga retreat are intermediate level. If you are an inexperienced hiker we recommend practising before coming on this retreat or choosing our Peak District retreats where the hiking is accessible for beginner hikers.

Fantastic venue. Beautiful house and gardens, tastefully decorated and quiet. The food was delicious, healthy but filling as well. Not tempting me to eat snacks in between! Tried horse riding for the first time in a perfect setting at a good price. A good mixture of quite a difficult hike and optional activities with relaxing yoga.

Another fabulous Adventure Yogi --- adventure! Fantastic, peaceful location, delicious food, the perfect balance of walks and yoga(s), incredible weather and really lovely company. The teaching was inspiring and the organisation faultless. My second trip - planning to make it a hat trick the first chance I get!

Price definitely reflected the quality of the weekend. Lots of yoga, amazing food and nice accommodation in a great location. The yoga was great. I liked how the morning one was more energising and the evening one more relaxing. Lovely yoga space.
