THE BACKDROP

The setting for Full Circle Retreats is Whasdyke Farm – a traditional Lakeland fell farm. Both the field barn and cow byres are made from traditional Lakeland slate, and the byres are a reminder of by gone days when this farm would have had a small dairy herd. Now we farm sheep and beef cattle.

As the crow flies we are only one mile from Windermere village but as a small hill rises between we have a wonderful sense of seclusion here, surrounded by fells and a network of single-track lanes.

We’d like to give you a glimpse of what life is like at Whasdyke through-out the year, and if you’ve booked a retreat, what it could be like when you visit.

All Full Circle Retreats are non-residential. For some lovely examples of the various guest houses, cottages and hotels that are available in the area please visit our ‘Where to Stay‘ page.
