Full Description

This beautiful Georgian country house was once home to economist John Maynard Keynes and ballerina Lydia Lopokova as their retreat for contemplation and calm.

The house was completely redecorated in May 2007, and all 7 bedrooms were decorated using natural materials. Every room has plenty of character and all have views over either the Sussex Weald or Downs.

The garden has many mature trees, where you can sling one of the many hammocks and relax to the sound of birdsong. For the more energetic there is a tennis court hidden behind a row of ash trees, while glorious walks across the South Downs offer inspiring sea views.

The firepit in a woodland clearing provides the perfect setting for spinning yarns and stargazing as night closes in. It's known that Lydia Lopokova the Russian Ballerina was inspired to dance on the lawns under the moonlight. perhaps we will too!

There are three cats and a dog at Tilton house. They are kept away from the rooms, but do roam the halls.

The morning practice is rich and challenging, building breath, strength, integrity and spirit as you deepen your practice throughout the weekend. Evening sessions are a little more chilled, offering workshops, slow flow and relaxation.

Whether you're just getting started with yoga, or an experienced practitioner, there's something for everyone, just take it at your own pace.

Classes will be in our own private yoga-yurt, and I, for one, am pretty excited about that.

Delicious chef-prepared vegetarian meals will punctuate each day, keeping you nourished and well-fed. Home grown, fresh seasonal produce from the kitchen garden is used as much as possible in the menu and the drinking water even comes from a spring on the Downs.
