Deighton Lodge Review (2024) – A pampering Yoga experience in the UK

practising outdoor

Overall Score 4.1

Deighton Lodge masterfully blends luxury retreats and a cosy atmosphere in England’s countryside. A renovated farmhouse, transformed into a lavish rural hideaway, hosts Yoga retreats focused on relieving stress and maximising your “You” time.

Not far from the city, yet located in Yorkshire’s peaceful nature, it is a perfect option for a relaxing long weekend. Different retreats options are available and all levels are welcome.

Carla and Jacqueline will make you feel at home while you can enjoy the comforts of a beautiful rustic villa.

Courses & Classes


Different retreats options are available, all revolving around different Yoga styles (Vinyasa, Restorative and Nidra) and Meditation techniques.

Deluxe Yoga Retreats offer one-to-one coaching and access to all the facilities (in particular, a hot tub, Reiki and massage). Detox Retreats are focused on a healthy lifestyle and balanced plant-based nutrition.

luxury yoga retreats

Simply Yoga Retreats are the “shoestring” option: only Yoga without additional fuss. Zen days are luxury one-day getaways to recharge your batteries.



Tucked away in Yorkshire’s green farmland, the refurbished farmhouse is located in a convenient spot, immersed in peaceful nature, yet not far from the city.

Walk around York and shop in the picturesque Shambles Street featuring overhanging timber-framed buildings. Visit the famous York Minster, one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe.

Don’t miss the Castle Museum, an insight into the medieval society and the prison system of the time. Cycle on the Solar System route near the farmhouse or explore the surrounding hiking trails.

Food & Accommodation


Carla prepares healthy plant-based meals 3 times a day. The majority of meals consists of juices, smoothies and soups. More specific cleansing and detoxing options are also available. Meals are well balanced, you won’t leave feeling hungry!

Value For Money


Retreats are kind of pricey, which comes as no surprise considering the luxurious location. Also the basic retreat is not so cheap. We believe this boutique Yoga centre is mainly destined to an exclusive public rather than backpacking-style yogis.

beautifully furnished bedrooms

Rooms are nicely curated but might feel a bit tiny. The yoga studio is also quite small, though you can practise outdoors when it’s sunny or in the barn, when available.

Both Yoga teachers Debbie and Jacqueline have extensive experience in Yoga.

Our Opinion


If you are looking for a 5-star pampering Yoga experience in the British countryside, then Deighton Lodge is your best bet. The renovated farmhouse is a feast for the eye and the senses.

spaces designed with minimal rustic style

Rooms are beautiful, just not super spacious. The retreats are focused on Yoga (different styles) and healthy nutrition, rather than a plethora of activities.

the outdoor jacuzzi is a plus

Its convenient location and the short-term retreat options make it a perfect getaway for busy people who need to unwind in nature while being in the proximity of the city of York.
