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.
The 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 beauty of this location is its lake frontage. You will be able to dip, plunge or swim in Lake Windermere whenever the mood suits you. You will feel invigorated and empowered as you connect back to nature in this stunning body of water surrounded by majestic mountains. This retreat also offers daily guided longer swims with our swim instructors where your every safety will be catered for and as little or as much kit as you need will be provided. Regardless of your swimming ability, you are all very welcome to join in on this retreat.
