Springhead is a beautiful seven-acre estate in North Dorset on the borders of both Wiltshire and Somerset. Its stunning lakeside gardens are featured in the book "1001 Gardens You Must See Before You Die" by Rae Spencer-Jones.

The centre is used by a wide variety of groups including youth groups and schools on educational and holiday trips, adult groups on retreats (Yoga etc.), family gatherings and wedding parties. Its vibrant, inspirational environment is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and nearby Fontmell Down, recognised as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. People of all ages, especially the young, find it an exciting and enriching place to visit.

When a group books the Centre, it has the exclusive use of the 18th Century Mill Buildings, stable block accommodation and Trust's lakeside gardens. In the main Mill Building, there are three good-sized reception rooms. The dining room on the ground floor overlooks a picturesque courtyard where in summer guests can enjoy eating al fresco. The other two reception rooms are situated on the first floor and overlook the lake. The larger room, namely the Mill Room, can seat up to 60 people theatre style and is ideal for workshops and presentations. While the Garden Room offers comfortable wicker chairs, a fireplace with a log burner and French doors leading onto the gardens.
