Experience Cullerne House
Cullerne House. Two words that evoke infinite memories for the hundreds of people who passed through its doors in the 1980s and 1990s, whilst it was owned by the Findhorn Foundation. People who were exploring, tasting, experiencing, journeying in one way or another with the Findhorn Foundation and Community.
The Foundation sold Cullerne House to long-term community member Marion Leigh who opened it as her family home and Findhorn Flower Essence business between 2000 and 2020. Marion's family sold the house in 2022 to a group of investors connected to the Findhorn Foundation and Community. Whilst its long term use is still being considered, the investors agreed to let it serve immediately as a B&B.
Its five bedrooms offer a combination of short and long stay, and the large lounge is available for workshops, meetings, gatherings of all kinds. The tariff for the B&B rooms includes a self-service, continental-style vegetarian breakfast.
The solid stone house construction of Cullerne House exudes peace and tranquillity. Visitors may choose to remain within those calm spaces and use their stay as a quiet retreat. The grounds are immediately adjacent to the Findhorn Foundation’s productive garden, where guests can simply walk and enjoy the ambience, or offer to do a gardening shift if volunteers are needed.
A little way beyond Cullerne Garden lie The Park Ecovillage, and hundreds of acres of open dune heath and woodland with many paths leading to the open sea of the Moray Firth. The vast tidal bay of the Findhorn River is adjacent to the main B9011 access road to The Park and to Findhorn village. At low tide the mud flats and stony shore are accessible for a waterside walk to the village; otherwise it is easy to walk on the pavement alongside the main road.
