Time for harvest festivals!
Festival time in Somerset...
DECEMBER has got off to a good start with plenty of activity at the Barn and some glorious winter weather (plus some not quite so pleasant rain!) The second weekend saw our first ever Yoga Retreat which focused on preparation for the Winter Solstice. Watching the sun rise over Glastonbury Tor on the second day made the experience complete. Using the Barn for this special interest group activity proved what an excellent location it is for events such as this. 'Yogis' were able to relax in the Barn beside the cosy log-burning stove in between practice sessions; the large kitchen made a perfect gathering place to share meals or a cup of herbal tea; and everyone enjoyed the trip to nearby Wedmore for the Saturday evening celebration. Yoga practices took place next door in the former milking parlour, a large airy space with stunning views both east and west - perfect to witness the sun as it rose, and as it set.
After Christmas we are looking forward to welcoming once again a group who were one of our first bookings when we opened at Easter this year. They have decided to return to Mowbarton to celebrate post-Christmas and the New Year. A perfect choice!
