The site is entirely off grid, for simple but elegant living:
There are natural waterfalls and fairytale bathing pools. Please do not use any chemical soap in the natural water.
There is a cosy wood fire sauna, for more of a deeper cleanse.
Beautiful fresh drinking water is accessible from a pump in our kitchen yurt, filtered directly from the spring. Other than this, there is no running water. (No hot showers)
We have toilets that are private and secluded.
We have solar panels rechargeable stations for phones and minor equipments, but no mains electricity.
Phone signal and data network service is very scarce in the valley, depending on your provider, you may pick up some signal in the parking area.
Stay in our lodges:
Accommodation for all our workshops is in celtic roundhouses with open fires or solid timber yurts with wood stoves and polished wooden floors. We also have separate women's lodge and men's lodge.
For additional private space:
You are also welcome to pitch your own tent on our meadow or park your camping van in the designated parking field.
NOTE: for Cauldron of Plenty, due to the amount of people on site, you need to bring your own tent or camper van.
How to get there

Essentials to bring
Your own bedding (sleeping bag, blankets and pillows). There are comfortable foam mattresses in our lodges.

Towels, bring a second one to sit in the sauna
(Wellingtons are by far the most useful for crossing the valley’s many streams and for easy on and off, entering and leaving tents, walking boots\sturdy shoes are more recommended for mountain walks).

(Depending on which events you are attending you will receive a detailed list of items to bring)
Cloth and threads
Stylish and beautiful clothes (a must for Sacred Man:Sacred Woman, and The Cauldron of Plenty!)
Poems, stories and songs. Any other wild thing that your gut prompts you to bring; bring it!
For Cauldron of plenty:
BRING YOUR OWN TENT or camper van
(Due to the amount of people on site, there isn't enough room for you to stay in our lodges).
Relax and take time for yourself leading up to your visit.
You are coming to a wild ancient place, bring your wild soul, your blanket (sleeping bag), your pilgrims boots (Wellies) and your spiritual panache (Ok your can work that one out when you get here).
You are welcome by our fire, it may have taken a journey of a thousand years to return to this ancient home; there is a place for you you, claim it!
