Founded in 1950, Braziers is a non-religious community and a college. The main house is Strawberry Hill Gothic in style and is set in 50 acres of unspoilt Oxfordshire countryside. Longer-term residents with a variety of backgrounds and interests live here and, in addition, there are usually three or four foreign students who come to improve their English and help run the house and grounds. We also have Wwoofers. Braziers is broadly evolutionist in outlook and has a particular interest in group process and group communication. We have paying guests most weekends and are a popular venue for wedding parties, groups and courses such as yoga, meditation, Forest School Camps and the annual Wood Festival, Supernormal and Sacred Arts Camp. We also run some of our own courses including beekeeping, organic gardening, spinning and community building. Visitors may either stay in the house or opt to camp in the meadows. There are 28 guest bedspaces in the house, but camping allows us to accommodate up to 1000 self catering. Our cooking has a seasonal, local and organic emphasis, mainly vegetarian dishes are served. Many of the vegetables come from our own organic kitchen garden, our meat is reared on site and served occasionally. Our land management is sympathetic to nature with commitment to sustainable life. The atmosphere at Braziers is informal, relaxed and supportive.
