At 42 ACRES we consciously create space for connection; to nature, to each other and to our true self. Our 24 bedroom Somerset retreat space set in 42 acres of beautiful ancient woodland and wild meadows acts as the perfect setting for a diverse range of transformational programmes. We offer workshops, weekends and week long programmes focusing on movement, creative play, social change, emotional healing, yoga, mindfulness and foraging.
From thought provoking weekends with activist Satish Kumar to rewilding and reconnecting with nature, our retreats create a space for individuals to re-set, reconnect and nourish their body and mind. We encourage guests to rediscover their creative flow, offering courses on painting in nature and learning to cook with wild foraged herbs. Our retreats work with the seasons so fluctuate between different workshops and programmes throughout the year.
As a company, 42 ACRES creates the space for inspiration and a total reimagining of how we can really feel alive and purposeful in the world. For this reason, we also operate a conscious coworking space in Shoreditch. Together, Somerset and Shoreditch work with individuals, entrepreneurs, pioneers and change makers to create a community of people that value working on their inner world in order to build the foundation for working on their outer world.
Central to so much of what we do is our deep appreciation for high quality, sustainably sourced, organic food. 42 ACRES Somerset also acts as a working farm where fruit and vegetables are grown on the land using varying methods of farming techniques that help regenerate the soil and give back the nutrients to the land. Whether applying biodynamic, permaculture or non-plough techniques we find the best methods to suit our local landscape and bring retreat guests delicious, locally sourced food.
