Our mission is to create a better world for now and for the future. As an educational charity, we bring together people and organisations in support of creative endeavor, a flourishing society, and a sustainable environment.

“You’ve got a place and I’ve got an idea” was the moment in a conversation between our founder and a friend that inspired the creation of Hawkwood 70 years ago. 

Alongside our programme of events, we host outstanding training programmes and work in partnership with a broad range of organisations to co-create events.

We are committed to caring for the environment. The Hawkwood estate has been managed sustainably throughout its history and is home to Stroud Community Agriculture who lease 20 acres for organic vegetables and livestock supplying 200 families with a weekly food share.

Hospitality and care for our guests are at the heart of our work, providing delicious, organic home-cooked and comfortable accommodation. You can be guaranteed a warm welcome and a relaxed and informal learning environment. We look forward to seeing you soon.
