Family Friendly Retreat 2009 | Image © Ruth Davey 2009
In 2006 we bought seventeen acres of land on Dartmoor, called “Frog Mill”, with the help of loans from our friends.
The site consists of several fields with thick established hedgerows a stream dividing the site and has views of Dartmoor. The site is large enough, and has enough flat space to hold our larger retreat events, such as the Child Friendly retreat.
Our aim for this tranquil site is to develop a magical and safe environment, providing the opportunity for adults and children to experience connection with a beautiful piece of land, hopefully for many years into the future. We are looking into various kinds of tree planting, including an organic orchard, and coppice for fuel and wildlife habitat. Taking on this project has been a leap of faith for us: in 2006 we borrowed £85,000 to buy the land and we wish to wholeheartedly thank all who have contributed £65,000 to our Land Appeal so far.
Owning this land means that our larger retreats have a site that can be developed for their needs.
Frog Mill is the home our annual Family Friendly retreat.
