The peaceful surroundings and natural beauty of Valley View provide an inspirational environment for creative groups to create a personalised retreat. We welcome crafters, artists, photographers, writers and dance groups. There are few places in the world where you can find such a variety of natural environments within a few miles. From ancient woodland, to rolling hills, from meandering rivers to rushing waterfalls. And from sandy beaches to majestic cliffs and from rugged moorland to picturesque villages.
At Valley View we welcome yoga teachers to bring a group for a personalised retreat. We provide catering but you create your own programme and have full use of the site and facilities. Or yogis and yoginis can arrange a personalised retreat or holiday. Contact us to discuss your requirements. Full access to the the site and our studio and relaxation areas are available for groups of eight students plus a teacher. You can arrange your own schedule and call on us for support
Valley View is a perfect base for the walking holiday. Both the Coast to Coast and the Cleveland way are nearby and the terrain is varied and interest.
We all encourage guests to take a break from driving during your stay. Whitby is a two mile walk along the disused railway line. Robin Hoods Bay is a beautiful five mile walk via the railway line, moors or cliff top. There is also a pub and a tea room in Sneaton which is 1/2 hour walk and a supermarket at a similar distance.
Individuals or smaller groups are can sometimes book vegetarian bed and breakfast in our main house or self-catered short stays in our log cabin. We do ask all guests to respect the retreat style ambience of the site.
