Deep Dives, Away Days & Work Retreats

Interested in organising your own retreat?

We’ve created the perfect campus for those in the new economy sector to come and study, work and play, and we’re inviting you to come away with colleagues for a self-organised workaway.

Selgars Mill is a secluded 19th century mill house nestled in eight acres of beautiful gardens with mature trees, a large vegetable garden, and private woodlands in Mid Devon just two miles from Tiverton Parkway Station or just off the M5.

The New Economy Centre is an immersive work and play campus for building a democratic economy. It's a space for those working in community businesses to come together, be inspired and do their best work, or simply rest.

 

The ground floor of the mill has been converted into ‘the Assembly Rooms’, a co-working space with a series of comfortable but practical workspaces set within the mill’s original heritage features. The first floor is the 'Training Space', a large open plan room with large tables, a smart screen, and a projector and drop down screen for presentations. The recently upgraded wifi is excellent and reliable, even with a multitude of devices at once.

 

We’ve also started a national collection of new economy literature in the People’s Library. We think it is the ideal space to swat up on new organisational structures, build a strategy, come up with new ideas or deep dive into a work sprint and get some serious work done.

There is ample space for work, rest and play over the four floors. Large windows overlook the stunning gardens whilst keeping a cosy and warm atmosphere with roaring fires. There is an enormous kitchen area with several fridges and multiple cooking appliance options, and large, long dining tables. There is accommodation for up to 22 people. That's 16 in the Millhouse, and room for 6 more in the Mill Lodge and Waggon. Find out more about the campus here.
