£395 – £450



Set in the beautiful Cumbria countryside, we will be staying at St Marks Stays near Sedbergh.

Myself and Kirsty Brown are offering this retreat as a chance to immerse yourself into the beautiful science, art and philosophy of yoga and Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is the Science of Life or longevity and offers a great deal of wisdom regarding diet and lifestyle habits as a way of optimising our health.  You will have the opportunity to develop your knowledge and understanding through yoga classes, pranayama, Ayurvedic talks, home cooked food and cookery demonstrations. Relax, reflect and recharge in this beautiful house. While I teach yoga and talk to you about Ayurveda, Kirsty is our delightful chef for the weekend. You will enjoy delicious and nutritious rich food made by Kirsty.

You can create the perfect weekend by doing some or all of the activities on offer throughout your time with us. There will be active and restorative yoga sessions, mediation and pranayama, stargazing, free time for walking and relaxing. Kirsty will give you Ayurvedic cookery demonstrations during weekend. You can do as much or as little as you like. All meals are included. A plant based delicious vegetarian/vegan menu following Ayurvedic principles will be prepared for you. Which can be adapted to accommodate intolerances / allergies upon request.

This retreat is for anyone looking to enrich, empower and energise themselves through Yoga and Ayurveda either as an individual, couple or group of friends or family.  

There are only 12 places available; our aim is for an intimate, comfortable and friendly group who can enjoy each others company. At the same time as receiving undivided attention, time and support from myself and Kirsty.

Within this former vicarage we are treated to pure luxury. There is a beautiful yoga studio, stunning kitchen and dinning room plus gorgeous lounging spaces. 

There are five spacious and luxurious twin rooms and two double rooms available, each with an en suite bathroom. All the rooms are very comfortable and designed with relaxation in mind.

The outdoor space is stunning set in the beautiful Howgill Fells,  we are treated to amazing views, lovely gardens and wonderful fire pit area for stargazing.

St Marks Stays is in Cautley, which is 2.5 miles from the small town of Sedbergh, Cumbria. Our live in hosts are Damian and Joanne, who are lucky enough to live at St Marks Stays and will be around during our stay.
