About Combe Grove
The Combe Grove Estate came under the guardianship of The Elmhurst Foundation Charitable Trust in March 2017 with three principal aims to practice and increase knowledge in the fields of health and wellbeing, create high-quality enhanced apprenticeships for local people and share facilities and expertise for the benefit of the local community.
Located within 70 acres of wild woodland and meadow, the Estate overlooks Bath, itself an ancient therapeutic city with healing waters at its core. The Estate team combines the latest medical research with the restorative power of nature to help those who pass through the Estate to reconnect with the primary needs of mind and body and leave with a greater sense of wellness, increased vitality and a sense of restored calm.
Combe Grove’s commitment to the environment ensures the land management team uses permaculture practices to help proliferate biodiversity in this incredibly special part of the Bath countryside. This helps to conserve its ecological health for future generations. Environmental responsibility is at the heart of all decision-making to ensure this land is left richer and more sustainable than they found it!
