Wyld Court has hosted educational courses,
conferences and gatherings for adults, children
and families for nearly 70 years. Many visitors
return again and again as course leaders and
participants or simply to relax as B&B
guests. As well as our popular workshops and
family activity weeks, we continue to develop our
programme of skills for sustainable living such
as permaculture design, eco-building, green
technologies, sustainable land use and
environmental arts and crafts.
We are located in the hamlet of Monkton Wyld,
amidst the rolling hills of Dorset and within
walking distance of the stunning Jurassic coast.
Our main building is a charming Grade II listed
rectory built in 1848 as an early Victorian
example of neo-Gothic architecture inspired by
Pugin (seeThe Rectory
more details). The house accommodates up to 35
visitors in two- to six-bedded rooms. The
communal areas, offering period features and
wonderful panoramic views of the countryside,
are heated by wood-burning stoves. There is a
hall with stage and sprung dance floor, a
beautiful sitting room with grand piano, a
healing room with massage table, and
facilities for making music, pottery and other
arts and crafts. Our eclectic and well-stocked
library is also available by arrangement.
Outside, we have terraced lawns, a small wood, an
orchard, fields leading down to a stream and an
inspiring Victorian walled vegetable garden. Our
water comes from our own wells and is processed
through our reedbed filtration system. We also
use solar energy.
The food at Monkton Wyld Court is vegetarian and
almost entirely organically grown, and sourced
from our own farm and kitchen garden and other
local suppliers wherever possible. We cater for
vegan, wheat and dairy-free diets by arrangement.
We also use eco-friendly and fair trade products.

in common several things: a lack of interest in
money making as a main motive for work, a dislike
for disctatorship, power, politics and
militarism… We wanted to provide something of a
microcosm with basic human activities such as
farming and building going on…
