Visit

Everything you need to know if you want to come see us

If you love animals, plant medicine or peace and quiet, you are very welcome to come and visit. You can come for a few hours, a day, a week, or even longer sometimes. This page will take you through the practicalities of a visit and answer questions you may have, but feel free to contact us if you would like to know more.

We want to make sure that everyone who visits enjoys their stay, and understands the special nature of our home. Over the Edge is primarily a working farm. Our days are organised around taking care of the animals, caring for the land and distilling. We live with horses, dogs and cats who move freely around the place, so a love of animals is a prerequisite for an enjoyable visit. You need to take into consideration that we are far from ‘civilisation’ and there is no public transport except for taxis. Also you need to have a reasonable level of mobility to negotiate the slopes in and around the camp. If I haven’t put you off yet, than read on for details of how and when to visit. 

If you are living or staying near by, come for a morning or the full day. Contact us to book sessions with the horses, or join us to distill, or learn about essential oils for animals

Tell us your interests and we can design the perfect retreat for you. Come alone, with a partner, or come as a group (maximum 6).

We host several scheduled retreats every year. See our schedule here

If you enjoy physical work in nature, and would like to experience a different way of life, you can come and help out at the farm.

Facilities

Simple, Comfortable, Natural

Our home here is a beautiful off-grid eco-camp. Our facilities are designed to blend in to the landscape unobtrusively. The spaces are simple and clean, giving you the feeling of camping with the comfort of a room (I refuse to use the word glamping!). Accommodation is in simple wooden cabins or caravans, with all bedding supplied. We have warm showers and flush toilets in a small bathroom block. Our ethos is very much one of celebrating our embodied experience on this planet, with good food, good wine and good conversation. For details on the accommodation click below
