A Space to Be, Retreats

Our Northumberland Retreat

Stay with us at A Space to Be. Whether you simply want to soak up the views and fresh air or plan a full itinerary of yoga and massage you are welcome as a guest in our home.

There are lovely walks on the doorstep in Shilbottle, and it is a short drive to the beach at Alnmouth or Warkworth.

Our guest suite shares an entrance with the yoga studio but is otherwise a self-contained unit and can be booked for retreats or on a bed and breakfast basis.

We can accommodate individuals, couples or groups of up to three and we offer three types of booking:

  • Just Be (B&B only)
  • A Space to Be Retreat (half board with yoga)
  • Workshop Accommodation

Our minimum stay is two nights between March and October.

Just Be

If you would like to stay with us on a B&B only basis the easiest way to organise that is through Airbnb, where you can easily see our availability and make your booking online. If you are unable for any reason to book via Airbnb you can of course contact us directly but please note that the end price is exactly the same.

Massage and Yoga sessions with Lucy are subject to availability, please enquire at the time of booking.


A Space to Be Retreat

On selected dates throughout the year we offer retreats for individuals or small groups. Prices starts at £165 per person and include two nights on a half-board basis with private yoga classes twice a day.

Guests staying on one of our retreat packages can also receive 20% discount on any massage treatment and this can be scheduled in the evening during your stay.

If you would like to stay on this basis please use the link below to see what arrival dates are available. Please note we do not take firm bookings more than six months into the future but you can contact us if you would like to pencil in a special date. To secure your booking we will ask you to pay a non-refundable deposit of £160. We will then contact you to confirm the length of your stay and number of guests.

The balance is payable on arrival.


Workshop Accommodation

Join us on a fully catered residential basis for Lucy’s Study Retreat Days, arriving on Friday and departing on Sunday. The price (£195) includes the cost of the workshop as well as two nights dinner, bed and breakfast and two additional yoga practices in our studio.

You will have a private bedroom but will be sharing the bathroom with one or two fellow workshop participants. We have three bedrooms which will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. Evening meals and breakfast will be served in our family kitchen.
