Tell me more about the yoga yurt?
Our yoga venue is the best part!

Bed linen, wood and kindling for the wood burner and all self catering cooking utensils in the hut

How far away is the yoga yurt from the shepherd hut accommodation?
The huts are based at Rydal Hall and the Yoga Yurt is set in it's own private forest in Grasmere. We will have a very picturesque walk to the yurt along the famous coffin route into Grasmere which will take about 45 minutes or alternatively we will drive to the woodland which is only 5 minutes. There will be a gradual gradient increase towards the end of the walk to reach the yurt but I can assure you, it will be worth it as the views are stunning.
What if my partner wants to come but does not want to do the Yoga?
That's absolutley fine, I understand that a partner might just want to walk in the fells or relax on the grounds of Rydal Hall. For this reason you can just book the 2 persons retreat price for £439.00 which means your partner gets 3 nights accommodation with you and continental breakfast for their stay.
What about charging my phone?
It is really useful to bring a battery pack for charging your phone. Alternatively, there are plug sockets in the toilet/shower block.
