Morris Mountains FAQs:
Particularly useful when you’re looking at joining us for the first time as you are likely to have several questions about the trips.
Why 'Morris Mountains'?
As we passionate about everything that we offer, we know that we can provide you with the best experience possibly, right from the yoga to food with all in-between. As it is a very small business, we pride ourselves on giving that personal touch, and you will go away feeling that you truly have shared an experience with people who do ‘walk the talk’ and not just put on a show.
What time can we arrive and what time does it finish?
For a normal weekend (Friday-Sunday) the retreat starts at 5pm Friday (can arrive from 4pm) and we finish at 1pm on the Sunday. The timings in-between depend on what we get up to.
For the bank holiday weekends (Friday-Monday the retreat starts at 5pm Friday (can arrive from 4pm) and finish at 1oam on Monday morning. The timings in-between depend on what we get up to.
What food is included?
Our weekend packages include:
- Evening meals on both Friday and Saturday. (and Sunday if a Bank Holiday weekend)
- Breakfasts – Our standard breakfast is a selection of cereals, yoghurts, fruit and toast. Please note we do not offer a cooked breakfast.
- Packed Lunch for Saturday – We supply sandwiches, fruit, cereal bars and crisps. However, we do not supply any drinks so please ensure you have a water bottle with you.
As well as meals, we also provide a variety of complimentary soft drinks and beverages – tea & coffee which includes herbal, fruit and decaffeinated options and fruit squashes.
We do not supply alcohol but you are welcome to bring your own.
Occasionally, we do stop off at cafes on route on our walk so this is at your own cost.
I am travelling on my own, are the trips suitable for this?
Yes of course!! We think it is great that people get out and do these things, and we appreciate that just because you enjoy something, it does not mean your circle of friends enjoy the same thing. So know that you will be welcomed as a solo traveller, and you never know, you might meet some new friends. You would need to share a room with another individual, but this will only be in single sex rooms.
Do you have single rooms?
Due to the layout of the accommodation and the limited numbers on the trips we don’t do single rooms, all rooms are twins.
Do you need to have yoga experience?
We like to think that there is no limited to your experience as a yogi, even if you have never stepped on a yoga mat before we welcome you to step on ours. The whole idea of the retreat is to give you an experience that you will take away with you, so if that means this being your first stepping stone to starting yoga or just like combining it with your day to day activities then this is the retreat for you.
What is the style of yoga?
The style of yoga is whatever style happens on the mat at the time. The primary style that is taught is Hatha yoga, but some people may find that their body needs to stay in a certain position for a while then thats absolutely fine. Because we will be doing some sort of walking over the weekend, certain positions are held for a bit longer to be beneficial.
Are non-yoga partners welcome?
Yes of course, as with solo travellers, we appreciate that partners do not necessarily enjoy the same things so yes non-yoga partners are welcome to come along.
Can I bring alcohol?
You are more than welcome to bring alcohol on the retreats, we just like to make you aware that we have the right not to take you out walking if we feel that you are still under the influence the next day, due to safety reasons.
Transport during the weekend
Our weekends don’t include transport.
As often as possible, we aim to walk straight from the door of the accommodation. However, sometimes the best walks are a little further away and we need to drive. For these occasions, we encourage our guests to car-share to get to and from the walk location, so that we fit into as few vehicles as possible. If you are a driver, if would be very helpful if you would consider volunteering for this if required!
Please also remember to bring some loose change for car park charges, which are sometimes unavoidable.
Can I bring my dog?
As much as we love walking with our four legged walking companions it is not always possible to bring them along on our weekends and walks.
If you would like to bring your dog, this cannot be confirmed at booking as it will depend on the whole group so will be confirmed only when the weekend is fully booked and all parties have put in writing that they are happy for the dog to attend the weekend.
Is there an age limit?
Morris Mountains is all about creating a social space for adults and as such all of our retreats are for over 18’s only.
There may be an exception if the weekend is booked exclusively for a group.
Food: Vegetarian or Vegan?
All of the food that is provided is vegetarian.
Vegan options are available so this needs to be stated in the dietary section on the booking form.
Food: allergies, intolerances and gluten free
Please ensure you list any allergies and intolerances clearly during the booking process, with notice we are able to offer gluten free meals and can accommodate most allergies. However, please note that due to the shared nature of the kitchens we cannot eliminate the possibility of cross contamination. If you have any questions then please contact the office.
