News and Diary


Autumn 2017 seems to have arrived all too quickly; what happened to summer? A bit of a damp squib really, with no two days the same, except for an amazing Bank Holiday Weekend.

Now September is here, the Long Barn will come back to life with regular classes and one-off events.

Jos leads T’ai Chi and meditation classes, Zen  Brushwork, and hosts the End of the Road Cafe sessions. Kate Burford  offers Shiatsu, Amanda Brown offers yoga, Vici Williams teaches Mindfulness, and Pip Wright directs singing workshops.

During the summer, there has been a lot of tidying up and finishing off jobs that have been on the go for ages; the Long Barn doors have been repainted, the piggeries are finally pointed, and the area in front of the Wood Fired Oven concreted. Also the Well that gives its name to the Well House has had its windlass restored, so looks as it would have in the 1870’s.

The Bull Pen restoration will continue in Autumn;  the next job is wiring and work on the interior; It will get finished sometime!  Our intention is for it to be a  further space for quiet contemplation.

We look forward to seeing you here sometime.

Jos and Peter
