Full Description

Bore Place (formerly Commonwork Farm) is a beautiful old Tudor estate in comprising renovated historic barns and a stable within a courtyard, extensive grounds and gardens and the main manor house with Jacobean and Victorian extensions. The main house is surrounded by a wonderful lawn and an ancient walled garden with a beautiful lily pond. Set in an area of outstanding unspoilt natural beauty, the entire estate is now a working organic dairy farm with free-range chickens, pottery and brickworks and serves as a residential training and education venue in a variety of fields of education.

The yoga classes take place in the listed 16th century converted barn. It is an atmospheric space and part of a group of historic barns within a courtyard, which have been renovated and converted to provide a comfortable and peaceful environment.

Accommodation is in twin-share or single rooms at Bore Place House or the converted Old Stable. (Single rooms are subject to a supplement.) Bore Place House is an old Tudor manor house comprising 12 bedrooms and a large comfortable sitting room with an open fire for those chillier autumn and winter weekends. The Old Stable has 11 bedrooms and a sitting room. All bedrooms are well furnished, and bathroom facilities in both houses are shared.

This special and unspoilt environment makes for a very relaxed weekend with a great sense of freedom. There is wonderful walking amongst the thousands of acres of surrounding countryside. The Sunday morning walk follows the Bore Place Field Trail.
