An internationally-renowned centre for mindfulness that sits on 550-acre estate in within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and bordering the River Dart. The whole Estate is certified organic and run using sustainable and organic practices and home to a plethora of rich flora and fauna. The Estate has been a dwelling since the 14th century but the Grade I-listed Palladian villa high was built in the 1760s. The stunning gardens have been through many changes over the years and are set in a Lancelot Capability Brownian landscape. There are 19th century pleasure gardens around the house formal terraced gardens, walled kitchen garden, where much of the vegetables for the meals are grown. Woodland Garden was established where the lower part of it was a Victorian pinetum There are two orchards which have been planted since 2000, as well as the estate beyond.
All heating and hot water systems at the venue are run entirely on an environmentally-friendly biomass wood chip boiler, making our accommodation.
