Bhaktivedanta Manor: An oasis of spiritual inspiration.

Its lakeside forest walk, colourful gardens, and graceful pastures provide an idyllic setting for a magnificent timbered mansion. See the Victorian interior of the Manor house and hear about the fascinating history of the Hare Krishna movement.

The estate offers retreat to a world of yoga, meditation, sacred music, pure vegetarian food, theatre, seminars, workshops, community schooling, and the dairy farm.

Magnificent Shrine of Krishna
See the hand-carved centrepiece of the temple and community.

George Harrison Garden and Woodland Walk
‘A Garden for George’ – Just one of many delightful spots amidst ten acres of lake walk, woods, and meditation gardens.

Organic Farming
An inspirational project developing a range of home grown vegetables on eight acres using a revived old English ploughing system. A unique feature of the farm is its reliance on ox power instead of tractors.

The country’s largest fully operational organic dairy farm and visitor centre reintroduces a radical approach to farming in the modern world.

Bakery and Gift Shop
Home-baked bread, cakes and savouries are all pure vegetarian and prepared with love and devotion. Various gifts are also available, including books, music, incense and clothing.

A warm welcome awaits you where you can experience a joyful ambiance imbued with constant meditation and prayer.
