When groups book the Centre, they have exclusive use of the 18th Century Mill buildings, stable block accommodation and Trust’s lakeside 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.
