Our place - "The Land"
“The Land” is a two acre wooded garden with many flowering shrubs, trees, landscaped areas with water bodies and sitting spaces.
The buildings include the main house where there is residential accommodation for up to 12 people.
The accommodation is simple, retaining a rural South Indian feel, but also has western amenities. This has meant that we are able to comfortably share our facilities with groups from very different backgrounds.
There are five bedrooms attached to the main house. Guests share rooms in groups of between 2 and 3 to a room depending on the group size.
The main house is connected to the Internet with a wi-fi connection so groups are welcome to bring laptops for emailing.
The external bathrooms and toilets are shared by the group with cold showers and flush lavatories. Hot water is available via bucket bathing, which is heated by a wood fire.
The pottery studio includes spaces with work desks for clay work, a woodfired downdraft kiln, a raku kiln, an electric wheel, hand turned wheels, glaze equipment, and equipment for welding and woodcarving.
There is a meditation room or chapel and a geodecic dome was built as part of a project to explore low cost buildings.
The vegetable plot is a place where we have experimented with using biodynamic techniques of growing organic vegetables.
The garden has grown over many years and has become an environment which is home to much wildlife; insects, birds, butterflies, moths, frogs, and toads.
We have spaces which we use for playing sport- volley ball and badminton, and we have a number of cycles for guests to use.
