As parents of young kids we know how hard it can be to participate in the wonderful array of 3 Principles events, so we wanted to create an event that our children would enjoy and would allow us to spend time with other 3P families in a beautiful, relaxed setting.

Having sounded out a bunch of you we have taken the plunge and booked the beautiful Rydal Hall in the Lake District

Our vision is to create a community steeped in 3P feeling where parents can enjoy quality time with their kids, as well as having time for themselves, and everyone contributes to a mix of planned and spontaneous activities including talks, nature rambles & adventures, games & creative pursuits for kids, music, coaching exchanges.

Please see our page about accommodation to read about the options available and how to book them.

We are doing this purely because we passionately believe that it’s something that would enhance the 3P community so we will only be recharging the costs to make it affordable to as many as possible.

We just need to make clear that by booking you accept that your children are your responsibility at all times, and that participation in any activities including 3 Principles coaching is at your own risk.


To make the event as accessible and affordable as possible we have decided to go back to basics. The price now covers communal camping and use of the bonfire along with firewood only (along with associated paypal fees). We are therefore  no longer hiring the youth centre or any indoor space in advance. So if you happen to have a gazebo and can bring it along that would be much appreciated.

Closer to the event we’ll have a community meeting over Zoom and decide what if anything, we think we need in terms of indoor spaces, communal food and other items and work out if we need a kitty to cover this.

If you are not camping and planning on using any of the other accommodation options available  direct from the venue then please get in touch via our Facebook Group to let us know you are joining us so that you can be part of the discussions that shape the community.
