Embercombe’s 25th Anniversary Celebration


Inviting all our friends, family, and those we are yet to meet, to our celebration!

10am – 9.30pm on 27 April 2024

In true Embercombe style this will be a joyous collective day, with the opportunity to deepen your connection with our community and revisit our land.

Who Is This For?

This is for anyone that Embercombe has touched, their friends and families and others who are curious to find out more about what we do.

What Can You Expect?

We will take the opportunity to collect memories and produce some lasting records of Embercombe’s first 25 years and to look towards the next 25.

The day will include a mix of workshops, a big co-created ceremony, and music from our friends and community.

An Invitation From Mac

“It would be great to have you here with us – to celebrate our shared journey, express our gratitude to this wild and beautiful earth, and to each other; to feel truly connected and profoundly glad to be alive at such a crucially important time as this.

I hope to join hands with you on this special occasion.

With deep respect and appreciation, Mac”


Tickets & Booking Information

As much as we would like for this event to be free to attend, as a small charity we need to cover the costs associated with hosting this.

Your Stay at Embercombe

Embercombe is a beautiful 50 acre rewilding estate on the edge of Dartmoor. It is a place to find a deep connection with nature – wild nature around us and wild nature within us. Our land is a mix of nature scapes to reconnect with, from mature oak woodlands that are over 150 years old, meadows and pastures, to various fruit orchards and gardens to explore, as well as our sacred stone circle and sacred well to seek counsel from. It is a place for nature connection, self development, inspiration and engaging in nature. 

Accommodation and facilities

There is the opportunity to stay in one of our beautiful yurt villages or to camp in our Well Field at the top of the valley the night before and after the event. Each yurt is furnished with comfortable beds and a wood fired stove. Both yurt villages and the campsite in the Well Field will have compost toilets and running water.

Full bathroom facilities with hot showers are available in the main building. Please note you will need to book your accommodation when purchasing your event tickets and it will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
