Yoga & Spice

Whitby, Yorkshire and the Humber

Yogandspice at Valley View is a small retreat centre and vegetarian bed and breakfast set in secluded woodland not far from Whitby, North Yorkshire, between the moors and the sea.


Accommodation is in woodland log cabins or in a spacious bed and breakfast room with ensuite slipper bath and direct access to the gardens. The log cabins include one two bedroomed and a one bedroomed and can be booked on a self catering or bed and breakfast basis, but the site is totally meat free. Groups of six or more can also book a fully catered vegetarian break.

Vegetarian, Vegan and Ayurvedic Cuisine

The owners, Lorraine and Mark grow their own produce and guests can buy organic vegetable boxes. Lorraine is the author of a book about Chinese food and an Ayurvedic coach. She offers cooking lessons and consultations if wanted. Breakfasts include free range hen and duck eggs from the Valley View poultry, home grown stewed fruit or home made spiced rice porridge or muesli.

For the more adventurous the signature dish is Ayurvedic Kitchari a complete protein with spiced mung beans and basmati rice. Sour dough bread with home made preserves is a more traditional option. As well as tea and coffee there is a range of home grown herbal teas.

We can also offer evening meals to veggie and vegan guests, either in the conservatory or left in the cabin.


We have our own yoga studio where we are offering personalised yoga retreats for individuals or couples on a half board basis.


Guest have full access to the four acre Valley View site which has woodland, gardens and a stunning waterfall. Lorraine offers private yoga lessons and Mark is a Mountain Leader and Single pitch climbing instructor and offers guided walks, navigation sessions and a chance to try climbing.

Valley View is in the North York Moors National Park and the stunning coast line is in walking distance. Nearby attractions include the steam railway which visits the iconic villages of Goatland and Grosmont famous for their appearances in Harry Potter and Heartbeat.
