The Winter House Weekend embodies all the values of The Summer House but tuned to the magical qualities of the winter season. Many people find The Winter House is a perfect way to get a gentle start into our community. It's cosier, and because everyone eats together and sleeps at the house, there are many more opportunities to make new friends. 

For 2019 we are moving to a new country house in the Midlands, which can be reached from London by high speed train in as little as 1.5 hours, with advance return train from just £23 . We'll be offering free transport from the local station direct to the house as part of the ticket.

The new venue has a heated indoor swimming pool, a small indoor sauna and range of bedrooms from shared dorms to comfortable double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms . (Campervans are permitted for free but we cannot provide hookup.) Historically bedrooms tend to book up pretty quickly so we recommend securing your place in advance.

For some The Winter House is about union and reunion - a time to meet friends new and old. It also represents the start of a new year and the boundary with spring: a time for self-discovery and encountering challenging new ideas.   Throughout you'll find workshops, talks, games, yoga, live piano and singing, a Saturday night party with cabaret, performances and DJing, film screenings, a play party plus delicious food to keep you nourished throughout. 

Hosted by a diverse team including expert educators, facilitators and performers, The Winter House is a relaxing retreat where you can explore intimacy and connection and expand your boundaries within a safer space, supported by our Wellbeing volunteers. And it's also a fun party where you can dress up, dance, swim, play and enjoy the company of like-minded individuals.
