This summer the Climb & Yoga – Chimera Climbing dream team is getting back together again to deliver a brand new special trip to the gritstone paradise that is the Peak District.
The Peak District is one of the most popular climbing destinations in Europe, with thousands of classic routes on great quality rock, suitable for all levels and set in some of the most picturesque countryside England has to offer.
For this trip, we will be staying in charming cottage accommodation in a beautiful rural setting in the heart of the Peak District. There are three cottages, all built in 1637, all of which have a fully equipped kitchen and access to an all-weather tennis court, games room, a private sauna, large landscaped private gardens with dining patio, BBQ and local woodland.
By the end of this retreat, you will feel relaxed, rejuvenated and be a stronger, more flexible climber. This trip will be packed full of yoga and climbing, whilst allowing time to enjoy the local surroundings, bonding with friends and making new ones!
Wednesday 8th July to Sunday 12th July.
Wheston, Peak District National Park.
Climbers and yogis of all levels.
- Climbing at all the best crags the Peaks has to offer under the instruction of a professional
- Morning and evening ‘Yoga for climbers’ sessions led by Climb & Yoga’s founder, Sandra Berlin

Food and transport are not included. Please see further information below.
There will be one yoga session in the morning and one in the evening. We will be climbing throughout the day. A full programme will be provided nearer the time.
Climbing will take place under the supervision of a professional instructor, where all the basics can be learned at your own pace. With so many picturesque crags on offer, you can sample many of the most classic routes that have made the Peaks famous.
Sandra will guide you through the ‘yoga for climbers’ sessions during your stay. These will involve energising morning classes to set you up for a great day of climbing and some well-deserved relaxing and restorative evening classes to wind your day down and gently work and stretch the body.
We are staying at three superb self-catering country cottages located within the Vicarage Farm’s grounds. Built in 1637 and set in six acres of delightfully landscaped private gardens and woodland, they enjoy uninterrupted views over fields, dry stone walls and quiet country lanes.
Also included are fully equipped kitchens in every cottage, an all-weather tennis court, games room, a private sauna, large gardens with a dining patio and BBQ, and local woodland to explore.

Although the farm is located in a beautiful, secluded setting, there is a wide range of restaurants, bistros, cafes and pubs (most serving food all day) within just a few miles.
However, if you’d rather prepare your own meals, there is a fully equipped kitchen in every cottage.
Transport is not included in the price of the retreat. In addition to getting to the Peak District you will also need to arrange your own transport to and from the crags each day. Generally speaking, the easiest option would be to drive. It takes between 3 to 5 hours to drive on average from London, depending on which part you are coming from and on traffic obviously! Drives to and from the crags will take between 15 to 25 minutes each way. We would strongly recommend lift sharing.
