Welcome Home

Join us here in Shilbottle for yoga, massage and quiet retreats in our Airbnb accommodation.  Just a few miles from the beach, we have beautiful sea views, open countryside, big skies and a well equipped yoga studio with underfloor heating.

Established in 2009, our mission has always been to create a space for yoga, wellbeing and quiet retreats – a space to ‘just be’.

Three friends and I enjoyed an exceptionally relaxing and rejuvenating weekend yoga retreat at A Space to Be. Lucy and Henry are excellent hosts and our individually tailored package included yoga and massages. Breakfast, evening meal, snacks and afternoon tea and cake were delicious and plentiful. We also managed to fit in a walk into Alnmouth and an evening meal at the great, local Indian restaurant which is a short walk from ASTB. We really didn’t want to leave!

What a lovely, quiet and restful week I had staying with Lucy and Henry! The place is really special and I enjoyed the great views from my room, the good night’s sleep and perfect breakfast. They made sure I wouldn’t miss a thing! It was wonderful to just go down the stairs and practice yoga, either on my own or joining Lucy’s classes. The area is amazing for walking and enjoying the coast. Shilbottle is also easy accessible by public transport from Newcastle and a good base to explore Northumberland by bus. Lucy and Henry also recommended places to visit. I’d love to come back soon…
