Welcome to our 42 Acres  signature weekend retreat! A fun, restorative and transformational experience sharing our founding vision of connecting with nature, self and others.

42 Acres is a wellbeing retreat and regenerative estate in Somerset. Our vision is to live in harmony with self, nature and others. We use our deepest intuition, ancient tools and shared knowledge to establish regenerative spaces, curate transformational experiences, and foster opportunities to learn, heal and grow.

Whether you are a naturalist toe-dipper or seasoned tree hugger, we’ve got you covered. There will be immersive experiences and nature connection workshops with our knowledgeable 42 Acres  team, with live music, guided walks through beaver territory and wholesome food from the land you’re walking. Our co-founder Seth Tabatznik is joining us and will be sharing  our principles of co-creation through living in harmony with self, nature and others.

We’ll begin each day with morning yoga or wild swimming and a woodland sauna, rising as gently as the morning sun. Meals are served at long tables to inspire thoughtful conversations and deepen relationships. With tasty organic and locally sources dishes, wild teas and snacks from our ‘Soil-to-Gut’ menu. Our regenerative, hyper-local and simple food demonstrates a way of eating that continues the traditions of the past and supports our shared future. As we cultivate and restore the wellbeing of our planet Earth, we cultivate and restore the wellbeing within ourselves.

Throughout the weekend we’ll share memorable experiences to bring people together; deepen relationships; support well-being and inspire connection and creativity. As the sun goes down, the forest lights up and we gather round the fire for stories, music, meditation and peace.

This Experience Weekend is a reminder that we ourselves ARE nature and live in a beautiful, supportive ecosystem. As Joanna Macy says, “There’s a song that wants to sing itself through us. We’ve just got to be available.

Families, friends, singles and couples of all ages, genders and walks of life are encouraged.

Room Options

We have a range of comfortable accommodation to suit a variety of budgets.

Our rooms have beautiful views over the surrounding countryside with snug beds for peaceful sleeping. There are reading lights, woollen blankets and space to store your belongings. Bathrooms are modern with responsibly sourced toiletries and soft towels. Plus all our buildings are eco-powered and we have boot rooms for your wellies and coats.

The campsite has spacious bell tents with a queen futon and shared shower/toilet block. You’ll have your own wood burning stove for morning tea and access to a community kitchen. We provide essentials such as towels, torches, usb charging points, a cool box and comfortable bedding.

Our Tiny Boat has serene views of the lake, beautiful deck, woodland shower and a queen bed. This is a short walk from the campsite and retreat buildings so is a wild haven for those looking a more private experience. (The Tiny Boat now has curtains).
