ZestlifeThe Location

Silverholme is an eco friendly 5* Georgian Manor house on the shores of Lake Windermere, near the small town of Ambleside. Silverholme sits within the Graythwaite family-run country estate spanning 5,000 acres of the English Lake District. The house surrounded by parkland and gardens has unparalleled panoramic views and private access to the lake. You will find it hard not to sit back and relax in the opulence this retreat venue has to offer. Silverholme will take your breath away.

The Accommodation

Silverholme has been exclusively designed to ensure you experience the Lake District at its very best. The magnificent manor house has all the modern luxuries you could ask for but still holds true to its period character. Every room throughout the house has been tastefully appointed. All of the stunning en-suite bedrooms are light and spacious, with distinctive furniture and style and views of the lake or woodland. And with four reception rooms including the grand dining room, quiet library and calm drawing room, there are plenty of peaceful corners that you can find to unwind in.

ZestlifeThe Yoga Space

Just a short stroll across the courtyard from the manor house lies the the Coach house. It has recently undergone a modern renovation using wood from the estate for its warm wooden floors and has surround sound systems in place, ideal for playing music to help you drift off into relaxation. Its high ceilings and full length doors opening out onto the garden, allow the yoga room to be filled with natural light making it a calm and tranquil environment; the perfect space for your yoga and relaxation practise.

The Yoga Teacher

Laura Bell, The Zest Life founder, will be sharing her love and knowledge of yoga on this detox retreat. With over 12 years worth of yoga teaching experience she brings together a vinyasa flow style class that is suitable for all levels and abilities. The classes are fun and informative yet deeply restorative and nurturing. There will be more dynamic yoga sessions in the morning with more calming, relaxation sessions in the evening. Meditation plays an integral part of each session.
