Transition was renovated in 2006, apart from the outside walls everything is new, being built to incorporate new and old.
It was run as a B&B retreat by Shirley and Nigel for 5 years when they lived there. When they returned to the UK, it was let as a villa in the Summer months to tourist families. Shirley is returning in the Summer months to run the retreat.
2019, we are moving in a much more Spiritual direction with our retreats and inviting groups to join us on their/our personal journey as either workshop leaders or participants, we are planning to involve much more of the community with provisions grown on the land and cooking help. We now have a lovely new double room and shower room, locally for our leaders so that they have private space at night, the house is not occupied by anyone else.
Is pictured above with a lovley warm log burner, leads to an open plan hallway and oak staircase, into the handmade Oak kitchen. There is a door to the utility and downstairs toilet.
On cooler days, we can use this area for workshops and activities.
There are 4 bedrooms all have there own en-suite and separate WC.
2 doubles will sleep two people in twin beds each. (4)
2 trebles will sleep three people in each, one double bed with 2 single mattresses and bed linen for 2 and one single bed , the other treble room has a double bed with double mattress and a single bed. (6)
The house is surrounded by a large terrace with tables and chairs and we also have a lovely area of lawns and a paved area around the pool for workshops. We also, have access and use of some land next to the house where we have cut a grass path to a circle of trees that have grown naturally after one tree was taken down, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes of the burnt stump, we can do some lovely meditations and circle work in there. A gravelled area in the garden now has a circle of large stones and a fire in the centre for lovely Shamanic work.
The garden has lawns with tree coverage on one side, lots of mature shrubs, flowers and fruit trees.
The pool is Egg shaped to represent REBIRTH to a higher consciousness. It has wide steps into a shallow end leading to a deeper part up to shoulder height, so is lovely for workshop activities with this theme, as well as for fun play and swimming of course! The pool is surrounded by a lovely natural stone terrace where we have sunbeds to lie and read inbetween any of the activities on offer, which may be around the pool sometimes.
The small garden house is Shirley's studio apartment, giving participants the house to themselves.
All meals are in the main house.
