New for 2024 our new destination – Yorkshire. After the popularity of our destinations in the mountains of the UK we have spread our wings to this stunning location.
Situated a short drive from the pretty old market town of Richmond, the location is to the north of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, so you can enjoy hikes heading into this area of outstanding natural beauty. Known for its glacial landscapes explore huge U-shaped valleys and experience an expansiveness you don’t get in other parts of the country.
Swaledale, which is part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park that you will explore, along with Arkengarthdale, is one of the most northerly of the dales and it has perhaps the wildest, most unspoilt scenery in the National Park. Many of the villages and tiny hamlets – such as Gunnerside (from ‘Gunnar’s saetr’) – still carry the names given to them by Viking farmers who settled here over a thousand years ago.
Still famous for its breed of hardy sheep (the Swaledale ram is the logo of the Yorkshire Dales National Park) as well as locally-made cheeses, a visit is also an opportunity to see the local farming, craftspeople and business community keeping this very much a working dale.
The bustling village of Reeth, with its art and craft shops, pubs and cafés, is a focal point. There are also lovely villages further up the dale such as Muker, Gunnerside and Keld. All offer easy access to unspoilt landscapes, and provide walkers and cyclists with the perfect holiday escape.

'Truly wonderful yoga and hiking retreat in the Lake District. The retreat center was gorgeous and very special with a lovely staff, delicious food, and very comfortable lodging. The yoga teacher, Nikki, was fabulous — all of our sessions were beautifully led and we were held with such care and competence, I wish I could take her classes daily. And the hikes were great, especially Emma’s. Would recommend this retreat to everyone and am confident you’ll feel restored. Thank you!'
