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.
Large workshop hall
The Albion Room is a bright large space suitable for your workshops, classes and events. The room opens out into the back terrace and has a small kitchenette on one side for making food and drinks. The large high beams give the hall character and airiness.
Extra sleeping space
The Hayloft Room in the West barn is a workspace and lounge area leading out to the back terrace, with three sofa beds and futon seating. This hall can be converted into a dorm room for three people, bathroom facilities are on the same floor.
Bell tents, twin rooms and sleeping pods
Eden Rise has the following accommodation spaces:
- Two secluded bell tents erected on our grassy terraces, with small double futon beds (unavailable in the winter months from early Dec - early March dependant on weather).
- One small single room with small double bed.
- Three twin rooms with single beds on the first floor.
- One room with four single beds on the ground floor, leading out to the courtyard garden.
- Dorm room with separate sleeping pods on the ground floor (two pods with twin beds and two pods with small double beds), with two terrace doors leading out to the courtyard garden.
We can host single occupancy sleeping accommodation for 12 people should you require.
The separate sauna facility is a great way to relax after a longs days workshop, fuelled by wood with a large changing area and enclosed shower cubicle.
Unfortunately at present the building is unable to offer suitable wheelchair access.
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.
