Findhorn Retreats at The Park – Westwood

Welcome to Westwood

Westwood is a modern eco-home with a decked garden area and light-filled sunroom, perfect for a peaceful self-styled retreat. It is located near the Phoenix community shop, the iconic Original Garden and caravan, as well as being situated in gardens near where our Community Centre used to be.

Situated in a quiet area of The Park, WestWood was originally designed for Findhorn Fellows. A sectional building prefabricated off site, it was built 14 years ago on stilts. Double glazing and large, south-facing rooms make the most of thermal insulation so that you can be cosy all year round. Book Now

What can I expect from my Retreat?

Findhorn 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.

What else is there to take part in?

You may opt in to as many Findhorn Foundation or community initiatives as are available* at the time such as:

  • Community meditations (held online)
  • Taize singing (online)
  • Take-away meals from the local cafes on The Park
  • Spending time practising the art of ‘work is love in action’ in our gardens at The Park or at Cullerne, our vegetable gardens (an additional fee per adult per morning applies)
