Hammoon Manor Barn in Dorset is A 5* Luxury listed barn conversion. Surrounded by private English courtyard gardens, and forming part of the 16th Century Hammoon Manor (the largest thatched manor house in Dorset), the Manor Barn has been beautifully restored. Each room has a private en-suit. There are 2 kitchens, 1 of which guests have constant access to, the other where our chef will prepare delicious food and can be called upon to cater for specific dietary needs.
The grounds are classic English Country side gardens, where we will walk mindfully, meditate and connect deeply with native trees and plants, while learning about the heating power of nature.
