Inspired Days. The Studio

Planning a course, creative get together, or presentation, then our studio is the perfect place to generate that spark of inspiration. With full access to the studio, kitchen facilities, lounges, dining room and garden with views to die for, we can help you create the space you need for up to 12 people. We can leave you to it, or help your collective be a hive of positivity by providing treats and drinks at all the right times. If you prefer we can also arrange catering for you.

The studio comes as part of booking the whole house if you are planning a residential retreat.

If you wish to just book the studio it is £25 half day, or £50 full day

Be Inspired in the Studio

The studio is included as part of the whole house booking, or available to hire per half day, or day if no residents have booked the whole house out. Suitable for activities such as business meetings, presentations, creative courses, photography, small yoga retreats and as far as your imagination can take you. Furniture can be moved in and out of the studio for flexibility.

You will find courses and events on our Facebook page

Adventure is out there

Think of Damian and Joanne as your new favourite travel agents who have your personality in mind. Life gets pretty busy, so simply tell us what your group is in to and we can suggest activities in the area and even link you with local suppliers. Being in the perfect location of Cumbria and also The Yorkshire Dales National Park, you will have access to so much. The UNESCO World Heritage location of the Lake District is as close as a 20 minute drive and in the other direction, key locations in The Yorkshire Dales National Park can be reached in 30 minutes

Unveil your hidden passion

Want to share your expertise with a group of like minded people? Then do get in touch with us and we can create an Inspired Days week with a whole host of experts. We are looking for experts and tutors to help us put together various weeks throughout the year for people to book on to. It could be something for foodie lovers, fitness fans, or days of learning how to be more creative. If there is something you are looking for and you can’t find it, then do call us and we can look to organise it going forward.
