"A tranquil, idyllic getaway."
Our stay was relaxed and the accommodation was clean, spacious and set it breath-taking scenery. My 11 and 13 yr old kids absolutely loved the huge rope swing and pushing me as high as they could. My husband enjoyed an ale in the beautiful grounds. It’s a quirky, delightful place to stay. Read less

As an education centre for sustainable living, Monkton Wyld Court hosts a range of courses, conferences and gatherings for adults, families and children, providing a valued resource for the local community and for people from further afield, including the tired city-dweller seeking the re-invigoration of fresh food and country air.

With our eleven acres of gardens and meadows, we are located in a secluded valley within walking distance of Lyme Regis, Charmouth and Dorset’s famous Jurassic coast, so we are the perfect base for seaside holidays.

The Grade II listed Neogothic Court was built in 1848 as a Rectory. In 1940, pioneering educators Carl and Eleanor Urban established a co-educational boarding school here to promote cooperative living and learning. Although the original Monkton Wyld School closed in 1982, the importance of farming and other practical skills and a focus on sustainability have remained central to our ethos.

The Court is now run and maintained by a resident community with the help of volunteers. We work to develop and promote a lifestyle based on mutual respect for each other and for the natural environment, and strive to live as sustainably as we can.

Decisions are made by consensus, and new community members join through a gradual process that begins with a volunteering visit.
Environmental Statement
Monkton Wyld Court is managed by volunteers who live as a community promoting sustainable and low-impact living. We grow as much of the fresh vegetables and fruit we consume as we can in a one-acre Victorian walled garden; our three dairy cows provide all our milk, yoghurt and cheese; and our free-range chickens provide eggs and entertainment. Water for drinking and washing is sourced from our wells, and rain-water is used to flush toilets; there are also two award-winning compost loos on the grounds. All waste water is purified through a reed-bed system and is regularly tested to ensure no pollutants reach the stream that runs along the bottom of our property. Meals are cooked on a wood-burning stove, and rooms are heated with a combination of wood and solar power, supplemented in cold weather by LPG and hot-water bottles. We hope you'll enjoy participating in our practice of living mindfully and helping to conserve the planet's resources.
