'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!'
Human Curiosity & Insight Consultant, Unilever
Who you’ll be living with...
Designer, Entrepreneur, loves to paint & dance. I am excited about making this year's coliving even more intentional, where we inspire each other to establish new routines and wellness practices.
I'm a copywriter, content creator, workshop and podcast host, an event-operations-communications manager, and so much more than those titles.
I wrote a book called Have Your Cake And Share It Too.
I'm a joyful soul who sees the world through a lens of curiosity & wonder (aka "confusion" & "I hope someone can tell me what's going on")!
I love making the world a bit more colourful through design. I love working on creative projects, making websites, events, and wacky business ideas.
Researcher, author, psychic and mystic, I’m exploring psychology and spirituality to challenge the way we live and implement new concepts fostering self-awareness and social interaction.
Would you like to be part of our second season of coliving at Selgars Mill?

CoLive 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 2023 to March 2024, we 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 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 duplex.
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.
What is Life at Selgars all about?
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.
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?
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 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!
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 also have plenty of nooks to hide in.
On top of fiber broadband wifi, we also installed Satelite Starlink with repeaters throughout the whole venue.
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 bedrooms upstairs.
In our first season every dinner was shared and yet we never had an official schedule or rota. Everything just worked out with different people stepping up to lead the cooking each day. We are passionate about health and wellbeing. Where possible we will aim to buy fresh, locally produced and organic ingredients, and avoid plastic packaging.
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.
As a community, we choose to live in a way that minimises the consumption of meat and alcohol.
We feel this choice can have a positive impact on your health and the environment.
