Large Bunkhouse for Family and Friend Holidays and Reunions in Dorset

When groups book the Centre, they have 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.

While the Garden Room offers comfortable wicker chairs, a fireplace with a log burner and French doors leading onto the gardens.

Adult groups choose to come to Springhead for a wide variety of reasons: some visit the Centre for its calm and spiritually uplifting ambiance; some for its beautiful setting and unique character; some for its ethos of creative and sustainable living and some for its friendly and helpful staff. Whatever the reason, once experienced, people return again and again to enjoy this special place.
