place

Seven hundred acres of ancient forest encircle the main house, originally built as a dairy farm in the 1800s. Through centuries, 42 acres has evolved into our retreat space.

We can accommodate up to twenty-four people. We have 11 bedrooms rooms in total, 8 in the main house and 3 in the deer cottages.

communal spaces

Meeting & Reading Space

Part of a larger communal space, the round table and ochre chairs can be used as additional dining space for 12 people, or as a meeting place. There is also a reading space designed for curling up in front of the wood-burning stove.

Dining Room

Part of a larger open plan space, the Dining Room is a perfect place for group meetings as well as meals on retreat. It has slate flooring and a central oblong dining table which sits 12 comfortably. The tea station is also situated here for ease as well as another wood burning stove for warmth in winter.

Kitchen

A spacious farmhouse kitchen; with a large centre island, professional spec cooker, butler’s sink and French doors opening onto the front garden.

Reception

With French doors opening out to the 42 Acres panorama, the Reception is the central point of the main house. You can find a luxurious range of Victoria Ogilvy Sacred Art & Essence products here in our shop. We also leave our visitors’ book on the main table for guests to share their 42 Acres experience before they leave.

Group Room & Snug

An intention behind 42 Acres is to create a space dedicated to transformation and the Group Room is at the heart of this. With doors looking out into open fields we hope to create a special space for everyone who visits.
We have 24 meditation cushions and the room can fit 16 yoga mats in the main area and 2 mats in the snug.

Library

Tucked away behind the Group Room is the 42 Acres Library, filled with books: lent, left, gifted, devoured and here to be enjoyed by everyone.
