Residential Training at Bala Brook


Training at Bala Brook

Bala Brook is a beautiful residential retreat centre nestling in its own valley on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park.  Set in its own grounds by a tranquil brook flowing down from Dartmoor.


All the rooms in the retreat vary in size.  You will be allocated a room prior to your arrival depending on which type of room you have specified at the time of booking.  There are a limited number of rooms of each type, so we can not always guarantee you will be given the room you have specified.  We will contact you to discuss any adjustments.

We are offering two room choices:

  • Single room with shared facilities

    You will have your own room and access to the shared bathroom facilities.  The facilities will be shared with no more than 4 others.  There are 6 rooms available.

  • Single room with en-suite

    You will have your own room with your own en-suite.  There are 2 of these rooms available.

  • Room sharing

    There is an opportunity for you to share a room with friends who are training alongside you.  Please enquire at the office for the options available to you.

Each room is equipped with bedding.  Towels can be hired for £6 which should be paid directly to the venue.

What our learners say about Bala Brook

The residential aspect offers the possibility to immerse oneself in the training, putting the rest of life on hold for a few days. It also allows communications that are more real and transforming during the course. A big part of its success is to feel the emotional support from the trainers and other participants. The location (in nature) was exquisitely peaceful and beautiful. The retreat was very comfortable, including home cooking of the highest quality.
