For your Workshops & Retreats

Workshops & Retreats
You will love the non-corporate yet practical set up at dove farm. Ideal for day workshops for arts and crafts, as well as meetings, training events and residential retreats.

You will be based in our Dove Studio

Want to stay for longer? Take a look at our cottages based on current room configurations, our accommodation is best suited to residential retreats of around 12 guests plus group leader and catering assistant. You can always use nearby B&Bs to supplement capacity

You will appreciate being able to plan and organise your retreat in a way that fits your theme and purpose. You can be totally independent but do have a chat with us if you need extra help on board. Jane is an experienced teacher, coach and facilitator, as well as being a trained celebrant. 

Sometimes a guided meditation or guided walk delivered by another person, can free you up to organise your next activity, while a blessing or ceremony to embed values and learning, could help your event make that lasting impact. 

We generally hire out the cottages, studio room and outdoor areas of the farm, on a self catering basis, with the usual teas, coffees and biscuits (sometimes cake!) provided and included in the hire price. Talk to us about size of group and your requirements.
