The Location

Lea Close Farm is a 3rd generation working family farm nestled in 155 acres of woodland and pasture just a 10 minute drive from the A1.

The purpose built “Yoga Shed” was handcrafted 18 months ago from wood harvested locally and insulated with sheeps wool. With views over the surrounding woodland and no shortage of fields for classes outside it might well be Stainton’s best kept secret!

Our campsite is tucked into a quiet corner of the farm, alongside a beck. The area is free from light pollution and on a clear night the view of the stars is simply breathtaking. We will be ‘glamping’ in bell tents (4 to tent), with shower facilities and a roaring campfire!

There is ample parking onsite.
