The lakeside bar and grill will be ready to launch in summer 2023

Construction is underway for our beautiful alpine style bar on our 4th lake, the Tribal lake. With huge windows to the lake and sunset, it will have a huge log burner at it's centre and play host to the firepit grill on the edge of the water.

Having had a great time with the festival bar on the Tribal lake we are excited to see this project completed and open for guests and retreats.

The Lakeside bar and grill will be an amazing space to socialise and dine. We look forward to seeing you there. Access is for transformation guests, accomodation guests and club members.

We are holding a pre-opening party on the 10th of March by invite only, prior to the retreat on the 17th.

Get in touch to be added to the guest list for the preview on the 10th March 2023. This will be a low key opening for those in the local area, early club and community members and selected friends of the retreat.


If you are curious and want to see what Zen Jungle is becoming, ask for an invite and join us for a. drink. It's exciting.



Our Retreat Bistro and dining room with amazing inside outside bar will soon be complete, closely followed by the lakeside bar and grill. Retreat guests and club members will have bookable access to these amazing spaces and the tasty food within. Come alone or bring friends, we have space for a banquet as well as a cosy lounge, booths and lots of outdoor eating spaces in the garden.





The retreat is a place to become thoughtless and find peace but there's also lots to see and do in the 40 acres with 5 beautiful lakes, woodland walks, ceremonial theatres and quiet seating spaces and lots of shared firepits and activities.

The retreat is becoming totally self sufficient and will soon be the grower of all produce served. Water is fresh from our borehole and ingredients are fresh. Food will soon become a central part of the retreat experience, with our new bistro, lakeside bar and  firepit and regular weekly cookouts. It's a great place to be if you like great food or even to bring your own.

Our calendar is building and will be released soon. We are now booking for a summer festival and will be host to several internal and external events. If you are looking for a teaching space or somewhere to hold an event, please get in touch.

Our yurts have capacity up to 85 people and will be served by the bistro bar and kitchen.

Our Bar and dining room opens on the 10th of March 2023 with the Bistro kitchen to follow

We are currently in the final stages of completing the build of our Bistro dining room, bar and connected bistro kitchen. This unique addtion to the retreat will be styled in a hybrid of medieval and amazonian tiki and will have a 360 degree indoor outdoor bar.

The dining room, complete with bar, cosy lounge, dining booth and tables will open for the first time to pre-opening invited guests on the 10th March. The elevated position means that there are views from all sides and bridges to the teaching yurts and farm area.

A third bridge will connect the fully equipped bistro kitchen, which will serve great food for both retreat and cabin only guests, as well as members visiting for the day. There's also a small general store and washroom within the kitchen building.



Opening soon, our beautiful elevated banquet hall and connected buffet kitchen will serve simple, natural food that tastes amazing.

Mad Hatters Woodland Banquet

Although this is a little way off, we're excited to announce the mad hatters banquetting table in the woods. What an awesome space to eat.
