Beckfoot Retreat is located in a remote part of the UNESCO  World Heritage Lake District National Park.  We are nestled in the micro-climate of the Wild Ennerdale valley - an SSSI landscape accessed via a single track road, ensuring peace & tranquility.  The only B&B one field away from the water's edge.

We offer regular packages of nurturing activities - using nature as our partner with several  trained practitioners - yoga,  movement, mindfulness and Tai Chi - & activities: walking, cycling & forest bathing. 

We also offer massage and other therapies - advanced booking is essential.

In January, 2020 we launched our Off-Grid Retreat workshop days.  A mix of creative movement, drama, creative writing, sculpting, art, meditation and new challenges.  Ending the day with a gratitude session.



Our bedrooms are spacious and furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and retro items.  Comfortable and calm with views of Ennerdale Water and the Fells. Breakfast, soft fluffy towels and lotions and potions provided.
