Bore Place is situated on a private 500-acre organic estate and features three accommodation options for staying groups sleeping a maximum of 50 people altogether. You can rent the spaces individually or altogether.
The venue is home to an educational and environmental charity and has sustainability at its core. 45% of its energy needs are generated through an onsite wind turbine, photovoltaic panels and the management of the estate woodlands to provide wood chip for its heating and hot water.
Waste water and sewage are processed biologically and the whole estate, including the farm, are managed organically. Surrounded by rolling hills and pretty woodlands, with walks straight from the door, the estate is an ideal venue for yoga and retreat groups. A menu of organic food can be arranged or you are welcome to self-cater.
