A Space to Be Yoga Retreat
Ideal for personal retreats or quiet getaways our peaceful guest rooms are available for individuals or small groups throughout the year.
I booked this for my Mam for her birthday and she had a really brilliant time! The accommodation was lovely and she really, really enjoyed the yoga and Thai massage! She came home on Sunday feeling incredibly refreshed!
KATHARINE, A SPACE TO BE RETREAT
Located directly above our yoga studio your room looks out over open fields towards the sea. Arrive from 2pm and settle in to your room with a cup of tea. Enjoy a local walk (on the doorstep) or a massage in the afternoon/evening. Most of our guests enjoy exploring the area, visiting the coast and eating out at local pubs and cafes, but we can also arrange light meals for you to have at home.
Wake up in the morning to enjoy the dawn light shimmering on the distant sea. Get up early for a bracing walk or just lie in bed and feast your eyes on the sheer quantities of space and sky visible from your bedroom window. Our morning yoga practice begins at 9.30am and you can have a light breakfast beforehand or wait until after yoga (11am) for a more substantial brunch.
Depart after yoga feeling refreshed and rejuvenated – or stay a while longer – watch the skies changing, take a different walk (or just enjoy the same one again – its pretty good), book another massage, visit the coast, lose yourself in a good book (or our famous local bookshop Barter Books), fit in some more yoga – you have time and 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!
