Eden Rise Retreat Venue - a haven for wellbeing

The beautiful 200 year old converted barns are comfortable and homely, located in the quiet Devon countryside and can accommodate up to 24 people (12 single occupancy available).


Eden Rise is located two miles West of Totnes town centre, situated in the lovely Devon countryside. Through a generous gift, the Network of Wellbeing Charity acquired Eden Rise in May 2018. NOW is keen to continue using Eden Rise for wellbeing-related residential lettings, hiring out the venue as well as facilitating their own events.

Compact and cosy, this tranquil property includes; two large bright workshop spaces that open out to the back terrace of the building, sleeping quarters on either side of the barns with single (and a few small double) beds, two bell tents, ample shower and toilet facilities, large ground floor kitchen/dining area opening out into the garden, sheltered courtyard and garden with fire pit, outdoor seating areas and a separate woodburning sauna facility.


Unfortunately at present the building is unable to offer suitable wheelchair access.

Eco Practices

We are constantly improving our green journey and have invested in this with the provision of the following: Our building runs on solar and green energy suppliers; Fresh filtered water is produced from the on-site borehole, it contains no chlorine or other additives; Hot water, an eco-solar and electric system, provides a non-instant supply to meet everyone’s needs; Underfloor heating is installed throughout the building; Solar panels produce electricity for the grid; Sustainable products are used for housekeeping; Recycling collection point onsite (except for glass materials).

We will continue to monitor our energy and water usage, purchase of consumables, research and learn about environmental problems and ways we can help solve them.
