A limited number of bursaries are available to those who cannot afford to come otherwise. Contact us for an application form.

Your booking is only secured after payment of your deposit or full payment.

If you have only paid a deposit 

The remaining balance will automatically be debited from your account 4 weeks before your retreat starts and an email reminder will be sent to you in advance of the payment being taken. If you have concerns about paying the balance amount, please contact us as soon as possible on 01803 732542. If you have only paid a deposit and your retreat is less than 4 weeks away, then your card will be charged for the remaining balance in the next few working days following your booking.

If you have to cancel

If you have to cancel, let us know as soon as possible: cancellation charges are dependent on how far we know in advance of the course.

We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), however as a small charity we regret are not able to underwrite these kinds of costs and as such our policy is non-negotiable.

We strongly recommend you take out your own insurance in case you have to cancel through illness or unforeseen circumstances. Cancelsure insurance forms are available by calling Cancelsure on 01666 841353. 

Partipant behaviour on a course or retreat

The Trust reserves the right to ask participants to leave The Barn if their behaviour is deemed inappropriate or is impacting negatively on the experience of other participants. The full fee may not be returned in such cases.

We also ask participants who want to leave The Barn unexpectedly to inform the manager beforehand.
