The Barn is definitely a very special and magical place with an amazing team of coordinators and admin support. I went with a little trepidation which was totally unfounded - the whole experience was comforting and restorative both physically and emotionally. The location is stunning and the program well established to ensure you get the maximum out of your retreat. I totally underestimated the strength of community established in barely a week and the meditation/silence periods gave you ample time and space to reflect on whatever challenges you were facing. I will definitely be back on a regular basis to reinvigorate my faith in human nature.

The Barn will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you to the coordinators and manager for making my time there so special. The structure and coordination throughout my weeks retreat was seamless, staff always more than happy to support you in whatever way needed and are masters at creating a beautiful and supportive atmosphere amongst retreatants. I know that I will be back again (already looking to book and just got back yesterday!)

My week at the Barn was one of the best experiences I had. It was my first retreat ever and the serenity of the place, the amazing coordinators (Huly and Barry) and the loving group of people made it so special. I want to go back again as soon as I can!

Very well organised and a very supportive place for you to meditate, live in community and work on the land. Great for those new to meditation or those wishing to give themselves space to practice further, with like-minded people. Many thanks to the staff and teacher who provided so much support to make the week as rich and nourishing as it was.

I had such a special time at the Barn this August. It was a beautiful experience of building community and engaging in mindful activity. The Co-ordinators and visiting teachers were excellent and the accommodation was lovely. It's located in a stunning area of Devon with an extraordinarily high density of retreat and education centres. Totnes is also a great town to explore. I can't recommend the whole experience more!
