The Yan at Broadrayne is a farm cottage nestled amidst the Central Fells and a short stroll from the idyllic village of Grasmere. It is located at the heart of the Lake District National Park, midway between Windemere and Keswick, making it easily accessible by car, bus, train or coach. You can enjoy beautiful views of green rolling hills and expansive lakes all around you. The peaceful, tranquil setting makes The Yan the perfect location for a rejuvenating and deeply restorative break to get away from it all. Stroll into Grasmere village during free time, go for a walk and enjoy seasonal produce at the Farm bistro. Or simply unwind in the yoga space, chill out areas and enjoy an afternoon tea: it’s up to you. Practise yoga in both indoor and outdoor spaces, in the sun or under the cool shade of luscious trees.
