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.
