fun filled day of walking,
cycling or sight-seeing?


Alexa teaches private yoga and meditation classes in the studio beside the cottage for individuals and couples. Classes can range from a more energetic Ashtanga class to a more gentle Yin/restorative session.


All mats, bolsters, blocks, blankets etc provided and classes are tailored to meet your needs. Days and times can be arranged to suit you. The cost is £45/75 mins or £50/90 mins per class. 

Again, please email Alexa in advance if you would like to book your class.  

After class you can stroll back to your accommodation feeling rejuvenated and relaxed and ready for a glass of wine and an evening cosying up by the fire.
