Our June bank holiday weekend is a wonderful time to visit the Lake District. The temperature can be warm and it should be ideal for walking. We also may even manage a dip in the nearby lake.
Lanehead is a fantastic building, set in lovely grounds, with superb views over the hills and lake. We have it for our exclusive use for this extended weekend of 3 nights. We have two rooms that will be used for yoga classes and both look out to the gardens and hills and are conveniently located on the ground floor of the main building and annex.
(please note that all meals will be vegetarian and some other dietary requirements can be catered for if we are informed well in advance)

A 4 day bank holiday break to do Hiking and Yoga in the Lake District in June. We are based at the stunning Lanehead near the lovely village of Coniston and we will be staying for 3 nights with a full 3 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 3 day extended weekend of Yoga and Hiking. It is perfect for our group and we have the entire property for our exclusive use.
The house at full capacity can accommodate 29, and the rooms can sleep from 2-6 people per room, but for this break, our group size will be much smaller, so there will be plenty of space.
All rooms are ensuite with great views of the surrounding grounds and hills.
We will be offering hikes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and Coniston offers us a huge variety of stunning hikes over the fells or around the lakes. We will be offering one group hike suitable for all for this weekend.
Because of its location Coniston is perfect for our June Bank Holiday hiking and yoga in the Lake District weekend and offers great options for hiking from the door.
At Lanehead we have two dedicated rooms which we will use for our yoga classes.
For this event we are able to offer yoga classes according to ability and we will ask for you choice of class upon booking.
We have found that we do have a wide range of ability during our weekends from beginners to teachers.
So for this weekend, at each yoga session slot there will be an improver/gentler class for those who are new or returning to yoga, (also suitable for those who may have an injury or a specific concern) and also an intermediate class for those who practice regularly or those with a longstanding practice.
You will be able to attend 6 yoga classes during the break. We offer a yoga class on Thursday evening before dinner and then 5 more classes during the Bank Holiday. A morning class Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and a class upon returning from our hikes on Friday and Saturday.
There will be two yoga teachers who will teach the classes and will split the classes so you have one which is appropriate for your level, you may have two teachers over the weekend.
Hiking and Yoga in the Lake District – Meals
A light supper on Friday evening, dinner on Saturday, Sunday are included and will be homemade. We will provide a buffet style breakfast and a packed lunch. Tea/coffee is also freely available for whenever you fancy it. Homemade cake is also included when we return from our hikes.

Our accommodation is in a fantastic location with many and varied walks directly on our doorstep.
Walk options will depend on the weather and current conditions. However, these are typical options and if the weather is suitable we will be offering these walks or similar. If the conditions are not suitable the walk options will be reduced, but we will still offer walks whatever the weather.
There will be one group hike each day
Thursday (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.
Sunday (11km, 450m of ascent) 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. Also, if we have time we will aim to visit the famous and picturesque village of Hawkshead, with its lovely pubs and tea shops.
NB: These walks are moderate walks by Lake District Standards of about 11km (7.5 miles) each day with a steady but relaxed pace. 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.
Please note all hikes will be led by qualified Mountain Leaders
For this weekend we are able to offer yoga classes according to ability/experience and we will ask for you choice of class upon booking.
We have found that we do have a wide range of ability during our weekends from beginners to teachers. So for this weekend, at each yoga session slot there will be an improver/gentler class for those who are new or returning to yoga, (also suitable for those who may have an injury or a specific concern) and also an intermediate class for those who practice regularly or those with a longer standing practice.
You will be able to attend 6 classes during this break.
We will have two dedicated yoga rooms on the ground floor, and the group will be split across the two rooms.
And if the the weather is good we have a lovely space in the Garden.
Sessions will take place on Thursday evening to get you in the mood for the weekend, then Friday, Saturday and Sunday before breakfast and after we return from our walks on Frida and Saturday. The general focus of the morning sessions will be to energise and warm up the body for our walk, and in the evening will be to stretch out those tired muscles and relax the body. There will be an emphasis on the breath and movement, and our priority is for the yoga to be enjoyable and safe for all.
There will be two yoga teachers who will teach the classes. 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.
Everyone who has been on one of these weekends all agree that yoga and hiking compliment each other perfectly and make for the ideal weekend getaway.
