Welcome to the calming atmosphere of the EarthSpirit Centre. We will be organising a four day workshop here in March 2023 at this wonderful venue, a converted barn complex in the secluded Somerset countryside. The Centre is not far from the M5 and A303 and the nearest rail station is Castle Cary.

If you would like more details please contact the organisers: Sarah McCloughry and Ken Orchard (see below)

You have the joys of a hot tub and a sauna, delicious vegetarian/vegan food, walking up Dundon Hill (an iron-age hill fort) or Lollover Hill and the treat of visiting the alternative atmosphere of Glastonbury.
The Hot Tub complex and Sauna will be available. There will again be fantastic vegetarian food and special diets on request (a small charge may apply) The centre is accessible by wheelchair.

Accommodation is in a well-appointed single, twin and multiple occupancy rooms, some with en-suite. Limited camping spaces are available.
