Enjoying healthy and flavoursome vegetarian food is an integral part of our active yoga retreats. The food is provided by the experts at the B&B, who also have a few vegetarian restaurants in the Lake District. Breakfasts are a hit, with a huge choice of yoghurts, toasted nuts and seeds, jams, soaked dried fruits, cereals, eggs, toast, tea and coffee. Enjoy a healthy packed lunch with their home baked breads and for supper enjoy flavours inspired from their vegetarian restaurant in Ambleside. It will be hearty, warming and healthy after an active day of hiking to restore your energy and fill your tummy. There are alternative milks and we can also support any dietary needs – just let us know.
