The Newbold Trust is a social enterprise dedicated to nurturing positive change by hosting transformative workshops, classes and events. We are run by a small residential team of members and work exchange help.
The house and venue is a beautiful late Victorian mansion with 7 acres of grounds, orchards, woodland. Our walled organic vegetable garden provides the community with delicious food and honey from our own bees. We are on the outskirts of the town of Forres, in close proximity to the beautiful coastline, rivers and mountains of the Scottish Highlands. We have close ties with the Findhorn Foundation ecovillage and community, which is just 5 miles away.
