Where We Are Based

Set in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside just outside Ashbourne, Sunshine Barn has been sympathetically restored to provide a suite of therapy rooms for Brighter Futures Personal Growth and its associated company Nature and Nurture CIC (a social enterprise).

Within Sunshine Barn, we have created a peaceful, private and cosy sanctuary for our clients. The rooms are homely and non-clinical, and are beautifully furnished. Several provide direct access into a private garden and paddock area, enabling clients to interact with animals and nature if they wish.

Visitors to Sunshine Barn are assured of complete confidentiality and discretion at all times, and for clients in the public eye we can make arrangements to guarantee exclusive use of the facilities to ensure total privacy. Private, free parking is available adjacent to the property.

When people are experiencing distressing circumstances in their lives, the therapy hour can rush by very quickly, and people do not always feel ready to leave at the end of their session. Here at Sunshine Barn, they don’t have to. We encourage clients to take advantage of all that’s on offer here before or after their therapy or coaching session– perhaps experiencing a treatment, relaxing with a book, having a snooze or joining one of our regular classes.

The refurbishment of Sunshine Barn has been supported through LEADER in the Peak District Rural Action Zone, part of the Rural Development Programme for England, which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union, and is delivered by Derbyshire Economic Partnership (DEP).
