The Gathering Fields Retreat is situated on a working farm in the Trough of Bowland near Lancaster and only an hour from Manchester and the Lake District. The space offers an indoor barn and an outdoor space for holistic and alternative retreats including yoga, meditation and sound healing. The venue is also ideal for family camping holidays as it is surrounded by rolling fells, wide open countryside and 9 acres of wild flower gardens and allotments which also acts as an outdoor classroom for permaculture studies. Working closely with third sector groups, local charities and small community groups, the Gathering Fields attempts to bridge the gap between urban and rural living.

Our Heart opening fields and magical woodlands make a gentle space for ceremonies and other celebrations.  The Gathering Fields welcomes both individuals and organisations to hire our space and can also provide a creative and bespoke range of workshops, yoga retreats, meditation retreats, family camping, Ayurveda, Permaculture, sound healing retreats and much more. Working together with groups of like-minded people we aim to help people restore balance and deepen their connection with self, children, family, others and the earth.

Open since May 2016 The Gathering Fields has been an ongoing project for the past 8 years and we are now able to have our dream turn into reality. We have our own qualified Yoga teachers who run yoga retreats throughout the year for better health and well-being.  Aiming to provide a sanctuary for people who need time for self-reflection. The meditation retreats and sound retreats enable people and groups to experience the calming qualities of the land while in the cosy fire lit barn.
