Accommodation for Yoga Weekends

We will arrange the accommodation for you in one of these lovely holiday cottages, most within walking distance of Saddle Street Farm. There are a variety of bedrooms with shared kitchen, bathroom, sitting room, garden or patio. We stock the fridge with simple breakfast items, milk, tea/coffee etc., and there’s a fantastic village shop for everything else.

If you prefer to be more self-contained, you can select the B&B option and we will put you in touch with your host to arrange arrival times and get directions – all are very easy to find.

The cottages are for 2 nights. If you’re coming for Saturday only, we have a single (The Tack Room) and a twin (The Apple Loft) at Saddle Street Farm. These are in the Studio, with shared kitchen and shower room. Please ask. Or check the B&B options below.

Yoga down the generations.

Grannie Polzeath 1927

With a bit of poetic licence it’s fair to say there are five generations of yogis in our family. Grannie Winifred probably hadn’t heard of Upavista Paschimottanasana when she was larking about on the beach in Polzeath with her friend in 1927, but it looks remarkably like it. (She’s on the right.)

FamilyyogaclassWhen Jean Lovegrove (the Mothership), Rachel Lovegrove (Her Yogaship), Harry (her Stroupwafel), Hayley and I are all at Saddle Street Farm for Rachel’s Yoga Weekend, perhaps we can recreate this photo taken on our last holiday at Quinta Mimosa and add another generation: Taylor McGhee!
