All Full Circle Retreats are non-residential. So if you were wondering where to stay, we are really lucky to have so many superb hotels and guest houses all within an easy drive to Whasdyke. A simple search will reveal a host of wondrous places. To help you, we’ve listed a variety of accommodation in the Lakes on this page, most within ‘spitting’ distance of the farm. From rooms for one over the weekend, to whole cottages for the week for groups of friends.

Please check all the accommodation websites for up to date details on rates and availability.
