A luxurious weekend in a fabulous castle in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside.  September 25th - 27th

Quirk of the castle!

We chose Augill as we love its location, unique style and homely atmosphere, and the rooms we will use for the yoga/pilates sessions are also unique, this means we have limited mat space. So, we need your name on a list and true to the phrase, it's first come first served! On booking, we will check which mat classes you'd like to join over the weekend. .

ONE to ONE SESSIONS - £45.  

Really want to maximise your time? Book yourself a one to one session!

Whether you would like to have a bespoke pilates or yoga session tailored to your specific needs, you have a specific injury or requirement that you’d like advice on or you’d simply love a treatment we have a few spaces available to offer you a bespoke 45minute one to one session.

 * Helen offers Yoga, Indian head massage, facials or holistic massage.

 * Esmé offers Pilates, deep tissue massage, Myofascial release or manual lymphatic drainage.


It's important to us both that you actively choose how to spend your time. You can join us for none, one or all of our activities. You could sit & reflect on a comfy sofa, embrace solitude in your lush ensuite bedroom or take in some fresh air with a mindful stroll in the garden. Your weekend. Your choice.

On that note, you're welcome to bring a partner who would prefer to do just that!
