What we do

Design your new self

You might not be looking to build a house, but everyone has their own grand design.

For David and Anjana, it all began with a conker tree behind a normal-looking row of London houses. They had a vision for a modern masterpiece, an eco-home that embraced the tree and its branches. They believed in just having a go. With determination and derring-do, they literally built a Grand Design themselves by hand, the renowned Curved House in Clapham, and, flourishing from it, two more amazing spaces in Wales and France.

Your grand design might be learning a new skill, re-connecting with old friends, or perhaps challenging yourself with an adventure. We all need space to grow. You don’t have to be perfect: just have a laugh, pick yourself up and (to quote the old dog Churchill) KBO.

Throw caution to the wind; have a go; you can do it. 

 
 
 
 
 
 

CAN YOU HELP US OUT?

Friends with benefits

Chillderness is a safe space for those who love life. Our experiences are mercifully gluten free-free, carb free-free and alcohol free-free. If you're all about kale smoothies and #eatclean then you’ll probably hate us. Jog on.

What we do believe in is getting together with friends and having a laugh while trying something new. So, if you join us for a course or recommend Chillderness to your friends on social media you will earn Chill Points that you can use for free courses, workshops or even staying at Red Kite Barn or Chalet F’Net
