Available for bookings of three nights or more, Rennaldburn is a seventeenth-century farmhouse a couple of miles south of Samye Ling which sits secluded in three and a half acres, part of which is a wooded ravine with a beautiful waterfall running through it.
Surrounded by pastureland, Rennaldburn is the first house built by Thomas Telford under the apprenticeship of a master stonemason in his early teens (when he was known as ‘Laughing Tam’ due to his joyful disposition :)
The self-catering half of the house sleeps seven to eight, though individual rooms can also be rented. (See bottom.)
The farmhouse has been lovingly refurbished in a rustic, earth-friendly way, with many unique features inside ~ from organic woodwork to original art, antique shrines and hand-printed prayer flags. I hope each time you visit Rennaldburn you’ll see something different to inspire you; I see it as an ever-evolving artwork!
New for 2018, there’s also an in-house gallery featuring illuminated pieces inspired by the world’s wisdom traditions; you can also see some in the back of the cafe at Samye Ling & on http://www.returntotheway.org/lightworks/
