OUR STORY

Experience the Magic of Selgars Mill.

Selgars Mill is a private hire venue located in the Culm Valley of Mid Devon. We host team building offsites, weddings, wellness retreats, community gatherings and educational programmes. We also host our own embodied nature immersions called SOMOS, a small festival called Enchanted and a coliving experience dedicated to wellbeing and personal growth during the winter months.

At Selgars, we think of nature as a canvas and our role is to paint a masterpiece with every retreat, conference, wedding or experience that we host here. Something incredible, perhaps even magical, takes place when we decide to gather in nature. We slow down, we open up and we begin to feel more connected and grounded to ourselves and with each other. New emotions, new ideas and new energy for change emerges. This is why we do what we do. Our purpose is to reconnect as many people and organisations in nature as possible, and in doing so help to build a more regenerative future for generations to come.

Our estate is small in size, but it is overflowing with big dreams and creative energy. Selgars is a place for both work and play. During the holidays we host 'Life at Selgars' coliving residencies, weddings and celebrations; we want Selgars to grow into 'a home away from home' where lifelong memories are made. When we all go back to school or work, Selgars is an ideal venue for hosting nature conferences, strategic offsites and team retreats. Selgars is perfect nature location to go to do deep work as a team and build the connection, trust, psychological safety and shared identity that is required for true collaboration and teamwork to take place.

As much as possible we aim to place creativity & regeneration at the heart of all we do. We have an edible garden on site and seek to source our food from delicious local producers. When it comes to hospitality, we believe in simplicity and participation. When something needs to be done, we all do it together. This is what builds community. This is what makes Selgars special. If this is the culture and spirit of the event you wish to host, then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

We have partnered with some of our neighbours in the Culm Valley village to provide more accommodation (within a short walk or drive from Selgars) so that we can host larger groups and companies who require private rooms and bathrooms for their participants.
