What is Selgars Mill?

Selgars Mill is a beautiful converted 19th Century mill house with cottages, set in eight acres of secluded grounds in the Culm valley in Mid Devon. The site has been curated to allow for focussed learning spaces and comfortable and inspiring conversational spaces, and for work spaces to turn those inspired conversations into functioning community businesses and society-altering campaigns.

We hope to soon open with a full programme of events, from short courses to small festivals, organisational away days to cultural residentials. With our beautiful eight acre site and facilities, we’ll be able to provide a unique space for events.

During the pandemic we haven’t been able to open the residential centre, and are operating a significantly reduced capacity, so in the meantime we’re inviting you to wind down in our idyllic and quiet space for your own retreats for up to six people.


You can book the whole millhouse from as little as £250 a night.

  • Book the Millhouse for a six-person retreat.

  • Book the whole site for your event (in 2o21).

Our Ethical Policies

We are a not-for-profit worker co-operative, with any surplus reinvested in our educational programmes.


Our fully vegetarian site is zero to landfill, using as many refillable products as possible. Any food waste is composted and used on site. We grow food for residential staff and cut flowers for the business in The Court, our on-site permaculture garden, using no-dig, chemical-free methods.


Electricity is generated on-site with rooftop photovoltaics. Heating is provided with a biomass boiler.


Our procurement is strictly local, ecological, and from other co-operatives wherever possible. We bank with the Co-operative Bank and use the Phone Co-op for our telecoms.
