Being Peace Cottage in Bradford Peverell, nr Dorchester, is owned by the Community of Interbeing UK and is available for individual and Sangha retreats.


Being Peace Cottage is simply and comfortably furnished.   It sleeps up to six in three bedrooms: one single, one twin, and one treble. There is an upstairs bathroom with a bath and shower, and also a downstairs WC. The kitchen is well equipped, with a fridge-freezer and a washing machine.

Surrounding the Cottage there is beautiful rolling countryside and there are many lovely walks in the local fields and woods.

Booking Information

The cost of staying at Being Peace Cottage is on a sliding scale from £5 to £20  per person per night. Children aged 5 to 16 years – half price. Under fives – no charge.

We ask people to pay an amount that is in keeping with their circumstances.  We hope that the sliding scale will make the Cottage available to as many in the UK Sangha as possible.

Local sanghas and other groups can also book the Cottage for a day (£25) or for an evening (£10). (Use of extra facilities at the New Barn Field Centre will be charged according to New Barn Field Centre’s charging schedule.)

Please note that the person booking the Cottage has to be a paid-up member of the COI.  If you are not already a member you can join here.
