Relaxing but with plenty of energetic bits! Great fun.

I booked as I enjoy Cilla’s classes and liked this location.

It’s a lovely hotel with very comfortable rooms. Breakfasts were great with wide choice & good service but disappointed with the meal on Friday evening.

My favourite part was the schedule of classes. They were varied enough for all abilities so it didn’t feel intimidating at all. They were well-taught and welcoming to us all – it was a lovely friendly atmosphere. This meant that mealtimes were friendly too, although it was also easy to ‘do your own thing’ if you wanted to.

It was relaxing but with plenty of energetic bits! Great fun.

Welcoming & friendly

‘I’ve now been on several weekends and always enjoy them. The instructors are experts in their field, and good teachers. It’s lovely to be in beautiful countryside, surrounded by nature. Lindi organises these weekends very well, and is great at communicating plans and details in advance.

One of the nice things is that I enjoy the company of many people in the group, and although some people know each other well, it’s a welcoming, friendly and not “cliquey” atmosphere! I like to spend time on my own and if that’s what I feel like doing, it’s easy to do so.’

An opportunity to take part in activities as well as exploring the local area

‘You don’t have to be good at the activities on offer, just have an eagerness to participate and to do as much or as little as you can. After all, it’s your weekend.

I like the way it was organised and the fact that the groups weren’t too big so there was a chance to chat to fellow guests. I think the choice of locations is great and it provides the opportunity to take part in the activities as well as exploring the local area. I also liked the fact that even though there were schedules, it felt relaxed overall, which is what I was looking for. It’s up to you how much you would like to participate. There’s no obligation to spend time with other people if you don’t want to, although I found this happened naturally.

I went on my own the first time and then with a couple of friends the second time. I enjoyed both weekends equally as much.

I honestly think SIMPLY ESCAPE weekends are a great idea. They’re in lovely locations, all communication is spot on and they’re affordable. Lindi is lovely too and really goes out of her way to check you are having a good time and that your needs are met. People were lovely on both weekends I went on and can’t really think of anything that I would change.’

A chance to relax and unwind. Simply fabulous.

‘A lovely weekend break in the beautiful Peak District and a chance to relax and unwind. The activities are designed so that beginners or more experienced people can participate. Everyone we met was very friendly and the organisation was spot on. There is no pressure to do anything you don’t fancy. There is plenty of opportunity to relax, either alone or with friends.

Good for anyone who wants to try new activities from yoga to boxing!  Simply fabulous.’
