Some Old Vicarage exclusives

As well as our onsite leisure facilities, we offer a number of activities that are tailored especially for you - all in the comfortable surroundings of The Old Vicarage.

A few options are featured below but we can try to arrange almost anything - just ask!

Mobile therapy treatments

If you fancy the ultimate in pampering, why not treat yourself to a health or beauty treatment in the comfort and privacy of The Old Vicarage?

Sharon Faye (MICHT MIFHB) offers a wide range of treatments, including facials, massages, aromatherapy and specific therapies for legs and feet. A popular choice is the Weary Walker's Package - ideal after a day out on those Yorkshire hills! For more details, contact Sharon on 07873 329257.

Yoga classes

We have links with several professional yoga teachers who can offer exclusive sessions in the private surroundings of The Old Vicarage. They cover a variety of styles from energising and flowing to strengthening and meditation. Sessions can be delivered on a one-to-one basis or for a small group and work really well in our beautiful gym overlooking the walled gardens.

Guests have found the sessions to be a wonderful part of a group holiday, complementing walking and other activities, or just to help you relax and de-stress on an individual basis during your stay.

Gillian Howells - Dru Yoga

Gillian offers Dru yoga meditation that will help you find that still place within and give you techniques to use in your own home. The sessions will not only offer yoga movements and posture but also provide a deep relaxation to help the body assimilate the energy generated and still the mind. Please contact Gillian on 01748 825362 for more details or email

Painting and drawing workshops

The breathtakingly beautiful scenery of the Yorkshire Dales is enough to make anyone want to pick up a paintbrush and if you feel like being creative then why not book an exclusive painting or drawing workshop with one of the region's best-loved artists?

Nora Yates is a professional artist and qualified teacher based in nearby Richmond. Using the beautiful environs of The Old Vicarage for inspiration, her bespoke workshops are suitable for adults and children alike and can be tailored to total beginners or established artists. All materials and equipment are provided and sessions can be taught individually or in small groups, for half, full days or even longer.
