Great Ayton Lodge


A small group (4/5) luxurious retreat space in the beautiful North Yorkshire village of Great Ayton, which was recommended in Sunday Times Best Places To Live as one of the best villages in the North. (April 10th 2022).

The yoga practice space is light and airy, with bi-fold doors looking onto an open aspect and a wood fired burner for the cooler months. Bedrooms are cosy with beautiful shutters and soft furnishings. Feedback says beds and bedding are 'supremely comfy'.

There are two retreat-options available at The Lodge:

1. Independent Stay:

Come and relax, with friends or alone. Stay for for two or three nights or a full week. Rest, relax and rejuvenate.

Use the yoga equipment provided and save yourself the work of carrying yours. Add in food from the local market or the various new places to eat such as the Pomegranate Persian Tea Room and perhaps book a treatment or massage at Body Bliss - which is 2 mins round the corner.  They offer a range of therapies to help you unwind and to support your health.

2. Supported Stay:
