About the event

Staying in the gorgeous Glaramara Hotel we enjoy comfy and spacious rooms, great food, and awesome scenery. It’s a beautiful spot nestled in the heart of Borrowdale Valley surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. The reward to effort ratio here is high with walks from the door and gorgeous swims around every bend. Suzanna and Amy have heaps of local knowledge so you needn’t to worry about a single thing. All aspects of this weekend retreat have been planned to perfection from your daily morning yoga to the best post-swim tearoom. 

Our small retreats are suitable for anyone with entry level yoga skills and some prior wild swimming experience. We are open and inclusive to all abilities with an emphasis on relaxed, down-to-earth enjoyment. Confident dippers and breaststroke swimmers will love Suzanna’s wide-ranging knowledge of wild swimming locations, whilst yogis will enjoy Amy's grounded and unpretentious teaching style. Worried you are not bendy enough to join a yoga retreat? Fear not, this isn't an advanced level retreat. In addition, Amy and I are both plus-size instructors and we understand how different bodies move in different ways. 

Each day there is a relaxed schedule starting with the choice of yoga, swimming or a lie in before breakfast. Most of our swim locations involve a walk so we head out after breakfast to enjoy the valley and find a great place to swim wild. A packed lunch from the hotel is included or we can visit a tea room or pub. After lunch there is time to walk and swim a bit more, or head back to the hotel for some down time before pre-dinner yoga. After a fulfilling day, Glaramara serves an amazing three course dinner, using the best local and seasonal foods and catering for all dietary requirements. This retreat is not a health retreat, we are down to earth, wine drinking and scotch egg eating kinda people.

With no mobile signal in the heart of the valley, fully immerse yourself in this rewarding retreat and switch off from notifications and the outside world. We invite you to join us in our 7th year hosting laidback weekend retreats, soothing frazzled minds and relaxing weary bodies.
