Description

Join us for a cosy mid winter yoga hiking break at the beautiful Yewfield country house. This is such a great time to visit the lakes and shake off those mid winter blues.

Our Yewfield yoga hiking break is based close to the stunning location of Tarn Hows in the heart of the Lake District.

A peaceful and friendly yoga and hiking retreat in the heart of the English Lake District, Yewfield is ideally situated for walking and enjoying this exquisite region of rare natural beauty which has been the inspiration for many poets and artists. Yewfield offers vegetarian accommodation for non-smokers with stylish rooms, stunning views and peaceful ambience. Yewfield has been awarded a Visit Britain Quality in Tourism Rating of 5 Stars.

You can read the Blog Post of our Yewfield Yoga Hiking break in June 2018 here.

February can be great time to visit the lakes with a good chance of snow capped mountains, cosy fires and great hiking.

Yewfield winter Yoga Hiking Break – Accommodation

Situated in 80 acres of private grounds with lovely walks from the doorstep, Yewfield offers many opportunities for exploring this unique national park. The gardens provide a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the stunning views, or on cooler days, sit by the log fire in the lounge and catch up with a good book.

Dining Room for Winter Yoga & Hiking at Yewfield

We have a variety of en-suite rooms in the main house plus several rooms situated at Rose How and the Apartments next door.  Rooms are either on a single room occupancy or on a twin share basis and if you are coming on your own as most do, then you will be allocated a room with a member of the same sex.

The public rooms of Yewfield provide quiet corners for you to curl up with a book or just enjoy the quiet ambience of the house. Music, books and DVDs are available to borrow from the extensive library. On cold winter days the wood burning stove keeps the lounge cosy. Yewfield is indeed a special place to make the most of your relaxing winter break in the Lake District.

On Saturday after yoga and breakfast, we will be hiking about 9 to 10 miles to explore the local area around Tarn Hows.  There are several stunning hikes we can choose from, but you should expect to be out for a full day and return to Yewfield around 4pm.

The hike will include sections of rough and possibly wet ground, but will be mainly on good footpaths.  There may also be significant uphill sections, so we can enjoy some good views and we sometimes hike to a minor summit.

On Sunday we will do a shorter hike of around 7-8 miles down to the Lakeshore at Coniston, before returning through woods and climbing again to Tarn Hows.

We have some fantastic scenery and country to explore including the popular beauty spots of Tarn Hows and Coniston.

 These walks are moderate walks of up to 10 miles each day.  However, it is the Lake District and so there will be some steep and rocky sections and possibly wet and boggy sections.  Therefore a good level of fitness is required and boots are strongly advised.

ALL HIKES WILL BE LED BY A LOCAL QUALIFIED MOUNTAIN LEADER

There will be a total of five classes during the weekend starting with the first class on Friday evening.  We offer two yoga classes on Saturday with a walk in between through the stunning scenery of the Lake District. There will also be a yoga class on Sunday morning before breakfast and then when we return from our hike, before departing.

The yoga studio is in its own building just to the side of the main house with floor to ceiling windows and great views of the garden and surrounding hills.

The yoga is varied and so will be suitable for beginners as well as for those who have practised before and classes will take place before breakfast and after we return from our walk.

The general focus of the morning sessions will be to energise and warm up the body for our walk, and in the afternoon, will be to stretch out those tired muscles and relax the body and calm the mind. Yoga and hiking are a good combination, and everyone leaves feeling rejuvenated and re-energised.

A limited number of mats will be provided for your use but feel free to bring your own mat if you prefer.

If you have any queries regarding the yoga sessions, please contact us.

Set in a quiet, elevated position with panoramic views over the Vale of Esthwaite, Lake Windermere and the Fells beyond, Yewfield is situated in over 80 acres of its own grounds. The house itself, with its impressive Gothic architecture, dates back to 1859.

The extensive grounds around the house include native woodland, rough fell pasture, a small tarn and a stream. The grazed pasture is carefully managed giving priority to ecological considerations, which qualifies it to be part of the Environmentally Sensitive Areas Scheme.

We have a variety of single rooms available for single occupancy at £350 per person, and twin rooms available for twin share,  situated in the main house, Rose How and the Apartments next door.  Twin share is £295 per person.  All rooms are ensuite.

If you would like a single room, please book early to avoid disappointment.

Note : if you are coming on your own, as most do, we can place you in a twin-share room with a member of the same sex.

The public rooms of Yewfield provide quiet corners for you to curl up with a book or just enjoy the quiet ambience of the house. Music, books and DVDs are available to borrow from the extensive library. On cooler days the wood burning stove keeps the lounge cosy.

Getting There

We can offer a optional pickup for the suggested train from Euston Station to Windermere train station (This same train can also be picked up from Manchester and other stops) :

Friday 21st February :
depart 1230  arr 1554

Getting Back

On  Sunday 23rd February, departure day, there is a train from Oxenholme departing 17:14 (arriving London Euston 2011, en route other connections).  We will arrange a drop off for this train after the last yoga class, for those who have booked pick up and drop off with us.

The trains from Windermere do not run regularly on Sunday, so having the transfer go directly to Oxenholme, saves time and means we can have a reasonable hike on Sunday.

The easiest ticket to buy is a return from Windermere or a return from Oxenholme (and buy the small local journey between Oxenholme and Windermere separately)

Please note that recommended train times may change closer to the time.

Train tickets are best bought in advance online and cheap tickets are usually issued 12 weeks before travel at http://www.thetrainline.com/buytickets/default.aspx

Alternatively if you do have a car and are happy to drive and car share, please send us a message.
