Autumn Experience Weekend


Join us – old friends and new – as we bring our hearts and our hands together, to share
food, stories, songs and silence; to be together in this magical place, experience the
Embercombe way and celebrate life together.

With the Embercombe Team

Is this for you?

Whether you’ve visited us before or you are yet to discover the delights of Embercombe, our Experience Weekends are a perfect way to spend time relaxing and reconnecting with yourself, to nature and other like-minded people. We offer a family-friendly experience where you can enjoy a slower pace of life in community and in harmony with the land, as summer meets autumn.

  • As life gets busier, would you like to slow down?
  • Do you long for meaningful connection with nature and the changing seasons?
  • Do you want to sit round the fire, feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your skin, swim in the lake, laugh with the children and connect with deep gratitude for the incredible gift that life is?
