Wanting outdoor space?
we have acres of it, here at the farm, with a delightful farm and riverside walk
to explore and spend time in nature.
Our accommodation is well suited to residential retreats of up to 12 guests plus group leader and assistant.
Larger group size? that's possible too, with more guests sharing - or with the addition of tents for summer retreats. Why not use dove farm as your base, and then call upon nearby B&Bs to supplement your overnight capacity?
Retreat leaders may prefer to stay overnight, off site, at the Duncombe Arms
just round the corner. Luxury rooms in boutique hotel style adjoining the pub restaurant. Why not add as an accommodation upgrade for retreat participants? Just 10 mins walk from the farm.
