The Martinsell Centre can accommodate up to seated 40 attendees in its large group room, which is equally suitable for yoga, meditation or other activities.

I can’t speak highly enough of the martinsell centre, we hired the whole centre of 5. Mindfulness retreats over the winter. Every one was an outstanding success. The centre is warm clean and comfortable, the food is fantastic, tasty healthy, mostly home grown and organic with a big dollop of love added in the cooking. Our hosts Nicola and Kelly are simply delightful, their hospitality is genuine and warm, they really do care and you’d be hard pressed to find more special people. The centre sits on an important energy meridian, the Aylesbury ley line, and if you are sensitive to these things you’ll be amazed by the power. Nicola and Kelly are adept at working with energy and have worked hard to cultivate and tune it. You only have to visit the centre and be in the energy for change to happen. Which makes our work easy. If circumstances allow we will definitely have no hesitation in using the centre again.


The Martinsell Centre is a venue with the most exquisite ambience, set in its own serene grounds. The training room, accommodation and level of service offered is superb for any kind of learning, training or meetings where you want something out of the ordinary, away from the pressure of everyday life. We needed to use the centre for a two and a half day residential deep-learning event based on the particular psychometric tool we use. Nicola helped us plan everything in intricate detail, down to a candlelit dinner on the last evening. Although the atmosphere was relaxed, everything worked like clockwork. The Martinsell Centre is quite simply a supremely beautiful venue.
