Summary

How would you like to get away for a weekend and revitalise yourself with like-minded people in stunning Leicestershire surroundings?

Our 3-day energising retreats include; candle-lit yoga session, Astanga yoga classes, meditation/relaxation, Ayurvedic treatments complete with delicious healthy vegan food in wonderful surroundings.

Stunning house and views, 10 beautiful rooms, 7 Yoga classes/workshops, delicious Vegan food and gorgeous Ayurvedic treatments. Our venue is in the middle of the country and is easily accessible, only 10 miles from Grantham, which is a 1-hour train journey from London.

Waltham House was built in 1929 by Toby Greenall, 2nd Baron Daresbury as a hunting lodge, it is situated in the famous Belvoir country.

The house was built in the 'Arts and Crafts' style that was popularised by Edwin Lutyens and was very much in vogue at the time. The house and gardens are a classic example of the late period of the style and the house is adorned in oak panelling and wood carvings, including one of Bacchus, the Greek god of wine!

The house is now the home of Toby Corbin-Greenall, Lord Daresbury's great-grandson, and his husband and they have refreshed both the house and gardens which had been largely untouched since the 1930's until recent years, while still staying true to the original style and character of the historic house.

Our stunning venue combines the modernised communal area's of the kitchen and lounge/snug, with traditional dining room and long room, providing the perfect mix of modern comfort with traditional period style.

The long room will be the home for our yoga practice throughout the weekend, delivering a unique atmosphere commencing with the candle-lit yoga session shortly after arrival on Friday evening.
