Feel nurtured by the gentle energy of this farm environment. The 18th century brick barns, that provide the backdrop for your event, have been through many transformations in their time. An adaptive space for learning, change and growth. Walk outside; see how the new sits alongside ancient farming landscape. Feel welcomed. Settle into yourself.
You will love the non-corporate, yet practical set up at dove farm. Ideal for daytime workshops, as well as being a quirky, alternative venue for meetings, training events and residential retreats.
You will be based in our warm and welcoming Dove Studio
