An Sanctoir is situated on 23 acres of mixed land which includes rocky outcrops, wetland, river, woodland, meadow, rough land, bog and pasture as well as hedgerows, garden and orchard.

The land has been dedicated mainly to nature conservation and offers a beautiful and varied trail through diverse habitats.


We have some ideas for the land including more orchards; nut plantations; coppices; and a community kitchen garden with an educational focus. We would like to start a forest garden and form an amphitheatre space for group activities. We are planning to make some of our paths accessible for wheelchair users.

As we develop the land for human use we are also committed to holding the principles of deep ecology, remembering that we are a part of our environment, and not separate from or superior to it.
