Monkton Wyld promotes sustainable living by leading the way.
Monkton Wyld features dorm-style accommodation for individuals and groups in a glorious Victorian-Gothic mansion in acres of gardens and farmland within Dorset’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with easy access to the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis, and the Wessex and Monarch Ways inland. Other types of accommodation are available including B&B and camping – check out their website for the full run down.
But there’s more to it than that and you’ll discover that Monkton Wyld is a fascinating place. Building on its past as an ‘alternative’ school teaching land skills alongside traditional education, Monkton Wyld Court is a charity promoting ways of living sustainably and leading by example!
Quoting from their website:
“The efforts made so far include fitting solar panels to the roof, installing wood-fuelled boilers and stoves, collecting rainwater for flushing toilets and adding a reed-bed system for filtering sewage, building, maintaining and popularising compost toilets (our palatial ones have won prizes!), using food waste for compost, growing our own fruits and vegetables, running our own micro-dairy, farming the land organically, using scythes to manage the grassland, recycling and reusing as much as possible, bulk-buying from ethical suppliers and cooking and eating communally, car-sharing, and lots and lots of people power and hand tools!”
So, when you stay, there’s so much to learn and experience.
