The Lakes has launched its own ‘yoo Retreats’ experience at the estate, in collaboration with the doyenne of wellbeing, Denise Leicester, founder of luxury skincare range and spa brand ILA.

Available for up to eight guests, the retreats take place within our beautifully designed and fully furnished lake fronting homes amongst 650 acres of private Cotswold countryside.

Supported by our 24hr concierge team and surrounded by nature, guests can escape everyday life in a truly calming and breathtaking environment. A holistic concept centred around finding inner harmony and based on yogic healing, the retreats explore deep relaxation yoga, meditation, lymhpatic drainage and nordic walking, complemented by nutritious home grown foods and fresh juices.

Each retreat runs over a four day period, from Sunday evening through to Wednesday morning with prices ranging from £1,400 to £2,400 per person depending on suite size.

THOUGHTFULLY PREPARED RETREATS WITHIN THE NATURAL SURROUNDS OFF A 650 ACRES COTSWOLD ESTATE

“Retreating means withdrawal. This retreat is about allowing us to reconnect with nature’s healing rhythm, and in doing so we can realign ourselves and strengthen our inner essence.”

DENISE LEICESTER | FOUNDER OF ILA

“This is a retreat to escape family, social or work pressures. The combination of rest, yoga, chanting, walking, eating well and rest releases emotional toxins and, I felt, truly helped to restore my vitality. I not only felt re-energised but recalibrated. Most importantly, I found it a place to reconnect my body and mind in a way that is hard to do in my frantic life.”
