A centre for sustainable health

Illuminating the path to wellbeing for individuals, businesses, and communities

The Elmfield Experience

Elmfield Estate is a hidden historic treasure by the banks of the River Bann which offers visitors a welcoming destination for exploring the path to well-being, for individuals, and organisations. It is home to The Elmfield Institute which runs trainings and experiences that support the holistic health of individuals and organisations and it hosts a monthly artisan market, with over 40 traders selling locally produced whole foods and sustainable living crafts, all supporting the wellbeing of ourselves and our environment. The estate can also be hired for exclusive private use for corporate conferences, events, incentives and private dining.

Sustainable living

At Elmfield we believe in sustainable, traditional healthy living, and aim to provide a space and facility to support community and individual wellbeing through natural health, whole food, sustainable living, and awareness of how we look after our environment. It is hard to get it all right all of the time but if we each try to do a little bit part of the time we believe it will make a big difference to our society.

Upcoming Courses & Events

As well as the courses listed below, we also offer bespoke wellness programmes that are crafted to your organisation’s specific needs. These trainings and retreats can be delivered online or at the Elmfield Estate.

Journey Into Stillness Retreat Guest

Elmfield Estate is the perfect venue for our ScaleX™ Accelerator Programme. It is situated in an incredibly scenic and tranquil part of our country and provides our participants with the opportunity to switch off and leave the day to day hustle and bustle behind. The meeting facility is excellent; both spacious and well-lit with natural light. Jane is highly attentive and works in partnership with us to ensure that we have everything we need. We dial in speakers from all around the world, from Australia to Budapest, and when finding our perfect venue the technology was of key importance to us. The investment that Jane has made in this aspect is world class. The icing on the cake is always the food. Jane is a pleasure to work with and we wouldn’t look anywhere else.

Working with Jane at Elmfield Estate has been a continuously inspiring and productive experience. Her attention to detail and fortuitous attitude combined with the beautiful surroundings and extensive space has made organising my Ballet Retreats a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Having such quality facilities combined with Jane’s vision really promoted my events to the next level.

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience you created on Friday. Having someone hold the space for me to step into and experience a quietness that I so badly needed to reconnect with was wonderful
