Tilton House Yoga Retreat, East Sussex

Tilton House is a historic Georgian house nestled on the South Downs near Lewes. Edged by woodland, with far reaching views over the Downs “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, it’s a deeply atmospheric place, set in six acres of grounds with mature trees, a tennis court and a fire-pit for stargazing. There is sumptuous accommodation and delicious vegetarian food with an international flavour.

London is only an hour away and Brighton a 20 min car journey. Glyndebourne is just 10 minutes by car. Charleston Farmhouse, home to the Bloomsbury set, shares the same private road, which winds into a network of footpaths that is The South Downs Way. Walk up onto the downs and find expansive views over the English Channel, stirring to the soul on any day.

The house was completely redecorated in May 2007 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, you could 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. The fire pit 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.

FOOD

Food at Tilton House is quite delicious. Most of the produce is grown organically, locally, and is generally vegetarian, although occasionally we may have some fish.
