Our May hiking and yoga long weekend break in the Lake District is based at the stunning Lanehead near the lovely village of Coniston. We will be staying for 3 nights with 3 full days of yoga and hiking included.

Hiking and Yoga in the Lake District – Accommodation at Lanehead

Lanehead is an exceptional period property situated on the eastern shores of Coniston Water, a Lake District home like no other. A fantastic and unique base to come together for our May weekend of Yoga and Hiking. It is perfect for our group and we have the entire property for our exclusive use.

Hiking and Yoga in the Lake District

Accommodation will be in twin share ensuite rooms and the house at full capacity can accommodate 29.  However, for this break, our group size will only be 14 so much smaller and so there will be plenty of space to accommodate any Covid restrictions.

Hiking and Yoga at Lanehead

All rooms are ensuite with great views of the surrounding grounds and hills.

Yoga in The Lake District – Hiking

We will be offering 3 guided hikes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Coniston offers us a huge variety of stunning hikes over the fells or around the lakes.

Because of its location Coniston is perfect for a spring break in May for hiking and yoga in the Lake District. Lanehead offers great options for hiking from the door.

Yoga in The Lake District – Yoga

At Lanehead we have our own dedicated room which we will use for our yoga classes.  There will be 6 yoga classes during this 3 night break.  Please note that on this break we are offering a single class yoga class at each session and this will be a mixed ability group class.  On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we begin the day with a yoga class before breakfast, then head out for our walk.  When we return from our walk later in the afternoon, we enjoy tea with lots of Yen’s delicious homemade cake.   Later each afternoon, or early evening before dinner, there will be a yoga class.

The planned routes with estimated distances and times are below, however, these may be adjusted depending on the weather conditions at the time.

Moderate Walks

Friday (11km, 450m of ascent)

On our first day we will take a hike up along some beautiful woodland trails to the picturesque spot of Tarn Hows.  We can explore around the lake where there are some lovely viewpoints of the surrounding hills and the Tarn itself.  Our return will take alongside a river and down through more woodland with some stunning waterfalls.  We then head into the village of Coniston, where we take a break and explore, before we head back to Lanehead.

Saturday (11km, 350m of ascent)

We will hike around the western shore of the lake where we will get stunning views across the water and of the surrounding Coniston hills.  There is then a short uphill section to reach Kelly Hall Tarn which is a fabulous spot for photos and to explore.  We then head back over to Coniston Water for a short Ferry ride (not included in the price) across to Brantwood the famous home of Ruskin.  Then its a short walk back to Lanehead.


Our final hike of the weekend will take us exploring the beautiful forest of Grizedale.  It has some gorgeous forest trails and views over Coniston Water and towards Windermere.

Note: These walks are moderate walks by Lake District Standards of about 11km (7.5 miles) each day. However, as it is the Lake District, there may still be steep and rocky sections and possibly wet and boggy sections. Therefore a good level of fitness is required and boots are strongly advised.  All of our weekends are aimed at people who have a good level of hiking and general fitness.


We have a dedicated room for our yoga practice with views out over the gardens to the Lake and mountains.

You will be able to attend 6 classes during this break.

Yoga classes will be mixed ability catering for beginners through to experienced practitioners.  Choices will be offered for your practice.

Yoga sessions will generally 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 hike, and in the evening, will be to stretch out those tired muscles and relax the body and calm the mind. Yoga and hiking are a great combination, and everyone leaves feeling rejuvenated and re-energised.

Please bring your own yoga mat and pillow case as a minimum.  Other yoga equipment is provided (brick, block, strap, bolster, blanket and scented eye pillow), but you may prefer to bring your own if you have any.

Any queries regarding the yoga sessions, please contact us.

Lanehead’s extensive facilities include en-suite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, yoga room, lounges and dining room.

There are two lounges with cosy fireplaces, with fantastic views of the grounds, lake and hills which are perfect for relaxing.

There are extensive grounds, views of the Lake, a separate annex for dining and a yoga room with more views.

Lanehead makes an ideal location for our May yoga hikes break.

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.
