About Pauntley Court

Set in stunning countryside, just two hours from London and only one hour from Bristol and Birmingham, Pauntley Court offers a tranquil escape.

Steeped in history dating back to the 1300s, it is the birthplace of Dick Whittington and was home to Elinor Fettiplace. The house is full of character and offers luxury accommodation and exquisite gardens with far reaching views across the surrounding countryside.

Retreat programme

The first class will be on Friday evening, followed by a delicious dinner. Lara will then lead you through two classes on the Saturday, a more dynamic morning class to align to body and breath and an afternoon practice to delve deeper into the postures and relax and restore. On Sunday there will be a morning practice before breakfast, another shorter class before lunch and the end of the retreat.

Between classes, there will be the opportunity to walk, enjoy the beautiful grounds, have a massage or relax in one of the comfy lounges.

Arrival time on Friday 18 November is from 4pm onwards. The first yoga session will be at 5.30pm. The weekend will finish on Sunday 22 November after lunch at 2pm.

Things to do

The surrounding area is perfect for a long country walk or if you fancy exploring further afield you can take a trip to Gloucester's historic cathedral and docks or add a day of walking in the Malvern Hills. There will be massages on offer in the free time and comfy sofas where you can curl up with a good book.

Accommodation & food

The luxurious rooms are spacious, light, charming and comfortable. All rooms are very well appointed, most are en-suite or have a private bathroom. Two rooms share a bathroom.

Delicious organic food will be served throughout the retreat. All meals will be vegetarian  - delights to nourish your body and soul.

Comments

I had a really wonderful weekend - truly nourishing, wholly inspirational and a lot of fun too. It's a beautiful venue, there was delicious food for every meal, a really super group of like-minded spirits, a great massage and, of course, Lara. She is an awesome teacher, a very special person

It is the ideal retreat for anyone wanting a break that focuses on well-being. I would absolutely do it again. Yoga on a Shoestring are a fantastic company to deal with, everything ran like a dream.
Sarah
This was truly the best yoga retreat I have EVER been on. Lara's yoga is so inspiring, nurturing and restorative it created a unique spirit amongst the group and we were all challenged and supported to develop in a way we never had before (both on and off the mat). It's a beautiful location and the food was delicious.
