Nestled in the picturesque Cumbria countryside, our tranquil retreat awaits you at St Marks Stays near Sedbergh.

Myself and Kirsty Brown extend a warm invitation to this retreat, offering you a unique opportunity to delve deep into the captivating realms of yoga and Ayurveda.

Ayurveda, often referred to as the “Science of Life” or “Longevity,” imparts profound wisdom on how to optimize our health through dietary choices and lifestyle habits. During your stay, you’ll have the opportunity of expanding your knowledge and insight through a variety of enriching experiences, including yoga classes, pranayama sessions, enlightening Ayurvedic discussions, sumptuous homemade meals, and captivating cookery demonstrations. As you bask in the serenity of this exquisite house, you’ll find the time and space to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate.

While I guide you through the intricacies of yoga and share my insights into Ayurveda, Kirsty will serve as our delightful chef for the weekend. Her culinary expertise will treat your taste buds to a delectable array of nutritious dishes, adding a delightful dimension to your retreat experience.

Crafting your ideal weekend is at your fingertips, with a myriad of activities to choose from during your stay with us. Whether you opt for a full schedule or a leisurely pace, our offerings include invigorating and restorative yoga sessions, moments of meditation and pranayama, celestial stargazing, free periods for leisurely strolls and relaxation, and Ayurvedic cookery demonstrations by Kirsty. You have the freedom to engage in as much or as little as you desire, with all meals thoughtfully provided.

Indulge in our delectable plant-based vegetarian/vegan menu, thoughtfully designed in alignment with Ayurvedic principles. We are also more than happy to tailor the menu to accommodate any dietary intolerances or allergies upon your request.

This retreat is open to individuals, couples, or groups of friends and family seeking to nurture, empower, and revitalize themselves through the transformative practices of Yoga and Ayurveda.

We’ve reserved only 12 places to maintain an intimate, welcoming, and convivial atmosphere, where you can savour the camaraderie of like-minded individuals. You can anticipate personalised attention, dedicated time, and unwavering support from both myself and Kirsty.

Set within the opulent confines of a former vicarage, our retreat offers a haven of opulence. You’ll find a splendid yoga studio, a kitchen and dining area that exudes elegance, and delightful lounging spaces that beckon relaxation and connection.

We offer five beautiful twin rooms and one elegant double room, each boasting its own en suite bathroom. Furthermore, we offer an additional double room with a shared bathroom. Every room has been thoughtfully designed to ensure the highest level of comfort and to cultivate a peaceful ambiance perfect for relaxation.

The outdoor space is stunning set in the beautiful Howgill Fells, we are treated to gorgeous views, charming gardens and delightful fire pit area perfect for stargazing.

St Marks Stays is located in Cautley, just 2.5 miles from the charming town of Sedbergh in Cumbria. Our gracious hosts, Damian and Joanne, are fortunate to call St Marks Stays their home and will be readily available throughout your stay to assist you.
