Live Slow With Us

Life at Selgars is an experiment in living together as a community in nature during the winter months inspired by our time in Stockholm at K9 Coliving.

From Dec to March we will turn Selgars into our shared Home. 

 

Life at Selgars is not a hotel or an airbnb. We are a community that consciously decides how we wish to live together for several weeks, preferably even months. We share more than just a roof. We share food, thoughts, challenges, ideas, skills and memories. Life at Selgars is the perfect place to come to when you need to start a project, or finish it. Or when you need that peace and quiet but also the support, feedback, gentle challenge, and positive peer pressure that a genuine community brings.

We have 25 beds available for the winter season (Dec 30th - March 1st). Some are in a shared room with shared bathrooms, some are private doubles in the main house, some are in our cottages and others in our tiny house wagon.

No matter where you sleep, you are welcome to use all the shared spaces: our coworking and living space, our shared open plan kitchen, our cosy library, our atelier in the barn and of course, explore our beautiful outdoor and edible garden. This is a collaboration. We all come together to make this place magical.

What is Life at Selgars all about?

Community Life 

There is no Community Manager at Life at Selgars. You are of course welcomed and shown around and there are some guidelines and groundrules but everything else is in your hands. See this as a wonderful opportunity to try what you never dared to do. We offer you a canvas and a panel of open minded people ready to cheer you on.

Minimum Stay

High turn over is harmful for the community. We ask you to consider staying at least a month. Our minimum stay is 2 weeks but we guarantee you, that is not enough. 

What will we do together?

We are hosting a new years eve celebration with close friends. From then on we have two months of slow coliving. We will take turns to cook for each other. We will go on long walks and enjoy the Devon countryside. We will hang by the fireplace and work on fun hands on projects on the land. We will create art together, we will talk about life, wellbeing and how we can transform the Selgars Estate in the months and years to come.

Work & Wifi

We host work retreats and meetings all year round. Our living and coworking space is perfect to work and we also have desks in most bedrooms. We have a library for deep concentration ’off screen’ work and a dedicated call room. 

Dogs at Selgars

Yes. Selgars is a pet friendly place.  Zuko, our Bernese Mountain dog is the head of Security though so your pet will need to pass his lick & sniff test. Jokes aside, do let us know if you are hoping to come with a fur friend and we'll have a chat. Please note that we might ask for a little extra dirty paws fee depending on the room you are staying in.

Food

We organise weekly deliveries and figure out a schedule for pot-luck dinners. We are passionate about health and wellbeing and will try out best to come up with an affordable food plan that works for everyone. Where possible we will aim to buy fresh, locally produced and organic ingredients, and avoid plastic packaging of course. We have a great network of local producers and caterers who can help us buy great fresh ingredients in bulk for an affordable price.

Getting Around

Selgars Mill is 2.5 miles from Tiverton Parkway train station in Mid-Devon. From there you can book a taxi transfer (5 mins) or cycle in 12 min. By train, Tiverton Parkway is 14 minutes from Exeter, 45 minutes from Bristol and 2 hours from London Paddington. The address is ‍Selgars Mill, Cullompton, Devon, EX15 3DA. We recommend bringing your bike and using it to get to local shops, cafes and the train station.

Activities

The activities that we do together will depend on who is in the house. There are so many things we can do: movie nights, book club, accountability club, game nights, yoga, morning walks, and language courses…  it only takes one person to lead and that could be you! 


Remember our motto: don’t ask yourself what the community can do for you, ask what you can do for the community. And if in doubt, Give. 

What you can take for granted is: 

  • Weekly Home gatherings

  • 2 potlucks a week 

  • Dog love 

  • Most probably yoga as our founder is also a yoga teacher. 

  • End of stay Graduation ceremony 


There are also quite a few things to explore outside of Selgars in the region of Devon & Cornwall. We will share more with you about that soon.
