A weekend yoga holiday based on the beautiful Yorkshire Coast. Converted barns/stables provide luxury four star ensuite accommodation set in the small rural village of Buckton.
From the accommodation you can explore the scenic coastline, walk along the 6 mile long stunning 100metre high Bempton cliffs (featured in The Daily Mail Newspaper's "The 20 finest views in Britain") and visit the RSPB Nature Reserve, the best place in England to see Puffins and Gannets.
Filey and Flamborough Head can be reached by clifftop and beach walks where you can discover one of "Britain's best beaches" as defined by The Times Newspaper and spend an afternoon rockpooling, exploring the caves or strolling on the beach. A short drive enables visits to the seaside resorts of Scarborough and Bridlington. Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are one hours drive away.

Price includes accommodation, daily brunch and delicious vegetarian evening meals prepared by a chef specialising in vegetarian food and using local organic produce, morning & late afternoon yoga classes with yoga equipment provided, guided beach and clifftop walking trips.
