YOGA HIKING WEEKEND – NAB COTTAGE, LAKE DISTRICT

THURSDAY 6 JUNE  – SUNDAY 9 JUNE 2019

I’m so excited to be offering a long weekend yoga retreat in the heart of the stunning Lake District National Park for the third time already. We will be residing in Nab Cottage for the weekend, which overlooks a beautiful lake and is surrounded by hills. There are many wonderful walks from the cottage including waterfalls, caves, valleys, mountains and rivers.

We will be staying in a retreat centre overlooking Rydal Water near Ambleside. Listed in The Daily Telegraph as ‘one of Britain’s 50 best kept secrets’ the cottage dates from 1556 and has charm and character. You can choose to spend time outside in the terraced gardens with secluded seating areas, enjoy the wood fired sauna or hot tub, borrow a canoe and paddle out on the lake, squirrel yourself away with a book in ‘the old opium room’, or borrow a guitar in the snug. The whole place has an easy going and welcoming atmosphere, ideal for relaxation, reflection, and enjoying good company.

We will be practicing yoga in a beautifully converted barn overlooking the fell each morning and evening. Each day we have a hike through the beautiful scenery of the Lake District.

Delicious home cooked and nutritious meals will be on the cards for this weekend, the team at Nab Cottage pride themselves on using fresh, organic and fair trade produce.
There are seven bedrooms in total, most of which are ensuite. The rooms at the front overlook Rydal Lake and those at the back look up to Nab Scar. Most rooms are arranged as twins but there are a couple of doubles as well, so please state your preference when booking.

Reiki, Shiatsu, Reflexology, and Traditional Oil Massage are available by request, at a charge of £45 per person per hour.
