'I absolutely loved staying at Selgars. Thank you so much for having me. I love how you've created a beautiful ever-evolving pop-up community where everyone can share, learn and grow together. I felt really inspired by the conversations with everyone, loved the mini adventures and thoroughly enjoyed the evening socialising. I also thought the property was fab and am super excited for the next chapter. Oh and Zuko was the icing on the cake!'

How fortunate I am to have met so many interesting and inspiring people; living such bespoke lives and prioritising what matters! This has been the most meaningful coliving stint I've had, and off the back of some varied experiences, I'm relieved to have found myself among people on a similar wavelength.

I think if there's anything to take from our time together, it's how awesome co-living and making friends can be. It's about sharing moments, learning from each other, and just having a great time together. It really makes life richer. So, thanks again for everything.

CoLive With Us

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

From Nov 2024 to March 2025, we will turn Selgars into our shared Home. 

 

Life at Selgars is not a hotel or an Airbnb. Our hope for every season is to build a temporary community that genuinely wishes to live together for several weeks, preferably even months. We share more than just a roof.
We share meals, 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 an authentic community brings. 

 

We have 20 beds available. Some are in a shared room with shared bathrooms, some are private doubles in the main house, and some are in our cottages and independent annex.

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 cozy nooks, our art corner, our game room, and of course, explore our beautiful outdoor and edible garden. This is a collaboration. We all come together to make this place magical.

Are you ready?

Fill in our form and we'll book a call.

It's not a test, we just like to chat and answer questions "face to face".

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 ground rules 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. It wont always be easy, and we ask you to be patient. With yourself and others. Because it will be very rewarding.

Minimum Stay

High turn over is harmful for the sense community. We ask you to consider staying as long as you can. We like to aim for an absolute minimum stay of 2 weeks but we guarantee you, that is not enough.

We have a maximum stay of 4 months, which will make you feel life part of the family.

What will we do together?

IMG_2823.jpg

Anything we want! 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 improve the space around us. We will connect with locals and support local projects. We will watch movies and play board games. 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.

'Filled with energy and gratitude, I left Selgars with a smile on my lips. The welcoming and open atmosphere together with the magical forests and flowing streams under the mill made a heartwarming impression on me. Looking forward sharing meals and stories soon again. Thank you!

The time with you felt so nourishing, calm, and like a great example of how I would imagine living in community for the long run. Thank you all for creating this space together - the great food, inspiring chats, and the chores that felt so easy because everybody was always helping out.

Work & Wifi

We host work retreats and meetings all year round. Our living and coworking spaces are perfect to work and we have desks in most bedrooms.
We also have plenty of nooks to hide in. 

Our ground floor is dedicated to deep work with a few desks (standing and classic) - Our first floor has a coworking corner in addition to our long dining table. We have working chairs across the different spaces and 1 large screen we are happy to lend. 

On top of fiber broadband wifi, we also installed Satelite Starlink with repeaters throughout the venue.

Need a change of scenery? There is a lovely orangery 20 min walk from us offering free wifi, tones of natural light and yummy treats opened every day 10-4pm.

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 do not allow dogs in the Mill House bedrooms. Only the Annex or the cottage can accommodate guests with a dog.

Food

Nothing is mandatory but we highly encouraged shared dinners every night. We have a simple weekly rota with some potlucks and leftover nights on weekends.

 

We are trying to be mindful of how we consume, for our health, and the planet. We find it easier to do that together!

Selgars provides your basics such as oil, salt, tea and coffee. Everything else you can order online and get delivered weekly if you do not drive. If you do drive there is a small COOP shop 5 min drive away and a large Tesco 10 min drive away.

Please note that we are a vegetarian community. We also  minimize our consumption of alcohol. 
We feel these choices can have a positive impact on your health and the environment and ask you to make sure you are ok with that before applying.

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

What you can take for granted is: 

  • 2 potlucks a week (or more, last season we ate together every single night!)

  • Dog love 

  • Yoga with Adriene

  • Curiosity Thursdays

  • Exploring the surroundings together and even day trips to the beach

  • End of stay Selgars Diploma 

  • some rain and cold weather. Swedes say "There is no bad weather, only bad clothing". Pack appropriately. We will do ugly sweater competitions and start fires together.

  • Also some absolutely gorgeous days.

  • Some freeloaders (we host spiders, squirrels, birds, and even the occasional sheep and deer on the property).

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!
