The Bedgebury Story
With a background in hospitality and business development from an early age, my route to Bedgebury began when my daughter and I started competing on the county level show pony circuit. It took me to Bedgebury and as a livery client I saw the potential of the historical estate with its beautiful outlook and proximity to the renowned Bedgebury Forest and Pinetum. It reminded me of my childhood growing up in the mountains in Canada. When it came up for sale in 2009, I realised this was a business opportunity too good to pass up.
Another childhood passion that seemed to weave its way into the Bedgebury canvas was photography. A gift of a camera from my father as a young adult soon developed into a passion. With the beauty of Bedgebury and each passing moment, I was desperate to capture and share everything I saw through the lens as a photographer and business woman.
Growing up in Canada led me to lots of adventures and as a sporting adrenaline seeker I found an unusual connection to yoga. I bumped into a yoga teacher in the local village and was drawn to his calm and stillness. I decided then I wanted to study yoga philosophy and movement. I became a qualified teacher and practiced daily within the grounds of Bedgebury which offers a backdrop of calm and serenity. I combined that with Ayurveda as well.
