More about the Summer Solstice Retreat
Nestled by the sea in beautiful small village in East Yorkshire countryside, with far reaching views, The Old Vicarage in Mappleton sits impressively in the natural landscape with ‘blue flag’ beaches and open fields beyond.
The detached former vicarage is believed to date back to 1822 and features a walled garden with ancient fruit trees. The house itself has been tastefully restored to retain its rustic charm and period features.
The setting makes for a beautiful and calming backdrop where you can get away from it all, relax, unwind, reflect and recharge and forget about the day-to-day.
