Built in the 1970s this charming pale green bungalow was named after its first occupant Dianne and is situated in the Pineridge neighbourhood opposite the famous Findhorn Flower Essences. In the 1970s a newly thriving Findhorn community of young Californians and a group of artists arrived into the community and set about making the art studios. The Original Park Pottery and weaving studios – also situated opposite Dianne’s – are still going strong and open to the public when regulations allow.
With its own cottage style entrance and front garden, this cosy bungalow gives way to a surprisingly spacious interior.
The kitchen leads into an open plan living and dining area furnished with comfy armchairs, sofa and coffee table perfect for unwinding and relaxing. A dining space is provided for with a stylish pine picnic table suitable for eating or journalling.
The lounge and bedrooms are carpeted for a warm and cosy feel and the bedrooms are simply furnished with pine wooden bedsteads.
This bungalow also has a front garden perfect for contemplation and enjoying the warmer spring and summer Findhorn sunshine. It is situated just a short walk from the peaceful pine forests, dunelands and serene, white beaches of the Moray Firth.

Findhorn Summer Retreats are an opportunity to stay on our site at The Park, Findhorn, home of the Findhorn Foundation. There is no schedule imposed and guests are free to use their time here as they wish. Spend time in peaceful contemplation or meditation in the tranquil and picturesque Original Garden close to the caravan where the founders Eileen, Peter and Dorothy lived and to the site where Main Park Sanctuary had been. Walks on the beach and in the woods around The Park offer an opportunity to deepen your connection with nature. Or you can choose to spend your mornings practising ‘work is love in action’ in our gardens at The Park or Cullerne vegetable gardens.
You may opt in to as many Findhorn Foundation or community initiatives as are available* at the time such as:
If you feel you want some company, you can enjoy the community atmosphere while enjoying a coffee or a meal at the Phoenix Cafe, situated at the beautiful Universal Hall. You may also be able to take part in a variety of ecovillage community events, dependent on Covid regulations at time of arrival or simply take your time soaking up the sacredness of the land, enjoying the powerful container of this transformational field and enjoying the ‘magic of Findhorn’.
