“Fantastic venue for our yoga retreat”
We hired The Healthy Home as a venue for a weekend yoga retreat and it was just fantastic. The guests loved the house, as did we. It accommodated us brilliantly – there were 11 of us in total, and we used the Big Room as a yoga studio. The house is huge but feels cosy and homely due to the quirky layout and variety of rooms. It meant there was always somewhere for the guests to go if they wanted their own space, or to socialise as a group.
Everyone had privacy in their own rooms, and felt at ease to use the house to its full potential. We catered in-house and the kitchen suited us fine, and there was plenty of room for us to eat in the dining room. The beds are incredibly comfortable, and we used the option of putting additional air beds in a couple of the double rooms and these were also surprisingly comfy. The house is sited in beautiful, peaceful countryside which was a great backdrop for our weekend, and fantastic for our walks – both long and short. It’s really easy to get to and our guests arrived by train (with us picking them up) or directly by car.
I could see my guests visibly relax as they walked in the door and we couldn’t get them to leave at the end of the weekend! Thank you so much to Gina for providing such a great venue, we will definitely be back. – Lucy and Stu 2015 (www.Lucyoga.com)
“Fantastic place to stay, highly recommend”
Myself and 9 friends spent a weekend in the healthy home to celebrate a 30th birthday. From the offset Gina the owner was incredibly helpful and she kept in regular contact with me to see if there was anything she could do for us whilst we were there. She sent me numerous links to local bars/restaurants and also provided some suggestions in regards to activities we could do both locally and in the house given that we were celebrating a birthday. The house is a little hard to find at first, unfortunately the postcode only takes you so far and then you have to find the rest of the way yourself however once you’ve found it it’s easy to find again it becomes quite simple!
The house itself is beautiful and the sheer size of it was simply gobsmacking the rooms were never ending. I would recommend that if you are spending a couple of nights there to spend at least one of them in the house to make use of all of the space that there is. We spent the first night in the ‘party room’ and it was more accommodating for all of us along with the numerous games that we had brought with us. Skipton town centre is about 15 mins in a taxi and there are pubs and bars and shops to keep you entertained so although it’s in the countryside you won’t be stuck in the middle of nowhere. If you are thinking of renting the house then please do so, you won’t regret it. I will definitely be looking at coming back”
