Enjoy a peaceful retreat in the heart of one of the UK's prettiest villages, Dedham. Our converted Tudor candle factory has a yoga studio offering a full schedule of yoga and meditation classes midweek. Guests are welcome to come and stay in the house while the studio is open. Joining classes is optional with advanced booking advised. Enjoy walks in outstanding natural beauty with clean air. Ask about private 1:1 yoga, standup paddle-boarding and cycling activities.

The space
The Tallow Factory has a lovely energy and while being in the heart of a village is convenient for all of the cafes, pubs and shops, it still feels tranquil and is a deeply relaxing space. The Pink Room can be made up into twin singles or king size bed and has private shower room adjacent. Shared access to downstairs kitchen and garden We request that guests kindly don't use the living room directly under the yoga studio while classes are on. But other times this space is available for watching TV or reading by the fire and playing music.

Where you’ll be

Dedham, Essex, United Kingdom

Dedham has everything you need for a relaxing getaway in unspoiled English countryside. Being in the heart of the village in a tranquil courtyard across from the church, you are steps away from a world-class gastro pub and a lovely cafe, as well as walking distance to one of the country's best-stocked Co-op grocery shops, locally sourced butchers, pharmacy and more. In just a few minutes walk from the house you can find yourself in the middle of completely unspoiled countryside. Stroll down to the River Stour, and either retrace John Constable's steps along the banks or hire a boat and row to Flatford Mill, scene of the infamous Willy Lott's Cottage of "The Hay Wain". Enjoy afternoon tea in the National Trust café overlooking the tranquil millponds before walking back to Dedham via East Bergholt for breathtaking views of Dedham Vale.

There are also tennis courts available for your use just 5 minutes walk away which need to be booked in advance, as well as a safely enclosed children's playground.

Hello! I'm a yoga teacher and writer living in the English countryside with my dog Dylan. I love yoga, art, film, music, writing, hiking and traveling all over this beautiful world. In 2015 I moved back to the UK to open a yoga studio in my family home The Tallow Factory in the heart of the idyllic village of Dedham. Its a magical place which still looks very much like the landscape that John Constable painted in the 1700s. Ask me about private group and individual yoga classes.

During your stay

If I am away my assistant or housekeeper can be available if needed. Prior to confirming your booking I will provide a full schedule of current yoga and meditation classes so that you know when the house will be shared with other clients and guests. Your bedroom is within a private wing of the house and the room has its own key. The kitchen is also within a private area separate from the yoga studio and opens onto a patio and garden with outdoor dining area. So you can enjoy parts of house in peace while the classes are on if you don't want to join. Guests are kindly asked not to watch TV or play loud music in the living room while classes are in session as the studio is directly above. Thank you.
