Welcome to the Calm Farm in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. An oasis of tranquility, healing and rejuvenation where time seems to have stopped. This spot in the wilderness of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is an ideal setting in which to find your still point, on the bridge over the property’s own waterfall, the secret river or any of the glades around. Peace is here to greet you. Drop off the heavy load you carry on your shoulders, your fears and worries, dry your boots and join us around the fire for a nice cup of tea to recharge and heal old wounds. A new adventure lies ahead, one out of which you’ll emerge wiser, kinder and more confident facing the world with the clarity of purpose, an open heart and a new found truth within yourself to share with the world. In the next 10 days we'll explore together the vastness of our being while discovering the beautiful landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, its kind and open-hearted people, their historical and cultural heritage and inspiring myths and legends.

About Me! I design and facilitate travel itineraries around the world that connect communities which share a common vision for the future of a more healthier, joyfully and peacefully world. Aiming for a substantial shift in the collective consciousness in the way we perceive travel, health and education, together we are awakening ancient wisdom of living in connection with nature, reverence for life and one another.

Dodds Hall is a reconversed barn approx. 300 years old that has been transformed in a magical setting for a wilderness therapy residential retreat. The place consists of a big kitchen, a bathroom and a living room with a dry sauna on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a three bedroom flat with 2 bathrooms ( adapted for wheelchair users as well ) and on the top floor there is an apartment having a separate entrance with two bedrooms and a little kitchenette and open space. Around the barn we can find the paddock and the stables which is home for Caroline's horse angels: Megatron, Little Lord Fontleroy and Farouk. They are master coaches at guiding humans through life and discovering their authentic power. The property is surrounded by stone walls, little creeks, a small waterfall and a river which creates the perfect spot for cold dips therapy. Any questions about the trip? You can let me know in the Q&A section!
