Ruth works mainly from her home Trealy Farm near Monmouth and Abergavenny.
Trealy Farm is a 138 acre organic hill farm supporting a very diverse range of habitats and wildlife alongside a working business growing organic vegetables and rearing rare breed sheep, cattle, pigs and a small herd of horses.
It is our belief that the ‘integrity’ of the space, including the food grown and served, the wellbeing of the soil, the farm animals and the wildlife, is an important part of the experience of being at Trealy. It is not easy to convey how special the feel of it is and the impact it has on people – but those who have been here will understand! It is an inspiring, enlivening and restorative landscape. Staying at Trealy Farm for a workshop can also deepen the experience, the contact with the space and the communal experience.
Spaces for therapy at Trealy:
There are a number of dedicated spaces for courses including:
- the ‘Pavilion’ – a stunning cedar clad building with far reaching views to the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains. The Pavilion has a group space, kitchen and wood fired sauna.
- the ‘Therapy Room’ – a small intimate therapy room with log burner for individual and couple work.
- ‘Camp Meadow’ – camp site of comfortable bell tents set around a fire pit in a beautiful wild setting.
- horse handling spaces including indoors.
Course accommodation at Trealy:
Accommodation is available in the Pavilion, in the barn attic and in the Meadow in five very large bell tents with double mattresses, carpets, bedside tables and all set around a large fire bowl. It is also possible for participants to bring their own tents and camp in private spaces.
While Trealy Farm is wild, private and ‘hidden’, it is also accessible – within easy reach of Bristol, Birmingham, Bath, Cardiff, Hereford, Hay on Wye , Brecon and so on.
