The venue is about five miles from Glastonbury in the UK, on the edge of Compton Dundon village in Somerset and within the sacred enclosure of Avalon. Situated in a beautiful landscape next to two nature reserves and just a couple of minutes walk from a yew tree over 1,700 years old (in the cemetery of St Andrew’s church.) The seventeenth century farm buildings have been restored and specially converted for use as a venue and are set within seven acres of fields and gardens, almost all of which are enclosed and not overlooked, so hanging around naked is more than welcome here. There is a hot tub, sauna, sacred tree circle, smoking temple, fire circle, spaces to hang out, chill, connect with nature and just be you.
EarthSpirit is just 20 minutes from junction 23 on the M5 and 20 minutes from the British Rail inter-city stop at Castle Cary. EarthSpirit is two and a half hours drive from central London (M3/A303) and one hour from Bristol. If you are coming by car we are really encouraging car sharing, both from an ecological point of view but also from a practical aspect as parking at the venue is limited.
