European Kinship Meeting
European SDA Kinship Meeting
Othona West, Dorset, United Kingdom
5th to 9th September 2019

BP18.05 Othona 1

Join us for an unforgettable spiritual experience at the stunningly beautiful seaside retreat Othona in West Dorset, set in beautiful countryside. Wake up to birdsong in the woods and fall asleep to the sound of the waves on the beach below.

The historic market town of Dorchester (birthplace of world-famous author Thomas Hardy) and the seaside resort of Weymouth are nearby. The beach is part of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site that stretches from Exmouth in East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset. The county boasts picture-perfect English villages with thatched cottages and breathtakingly beautiful scenery.

There are good public transport links to Weymouth and Othona is only a few miles away. Both Southampton and Bristol airports are nearby, serving most European cities with budget flights. In addition, the two big international London airports (Heathrow and Gatwick) are only three hours away. The airports all have good bus and train connections.

Day trips to London, Winchester, Salisbury (the world famous Stonehenge is nearby) and Brighton (the UK’s gay capital) are all possible. The local area is rich in natural beauty and offers plenty of opportunities for country walks and relaxation.

Prices start from only €309 (Euros) per person (with our Early Bird Discount). The price includes all meals and Othona provides wholesome home cooking with Vegetarian and Vegan options. Accommodation is mainly in Twin Rooms (two single beds), but a number of Single and Family Rooms are also available.
