Dartington Hall, a stunning Grade I listed heritage property set within a 1,200-acre private estate near the ancient market town of Totnes. 50 distinctive bedrooms located around a medieval 14th-century courtyard offer a superb mix of heritage and comfort where you can remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There is easy access to over 800 acres of stunning, glorious Grade II* listed gardens, fabulous walks and a newly restored 700-year-old deer park.
Don’t miss our weekly gardens tours, every Wednesday, at 11am-12 noon from the Visitor Centre or a guided tour of our newly restored 700-year-old deer park; every Friday, 11am-12 noon. Tours run from March to mid-October.
This is an exciting time for Arts at Dartington. We have our Summer School just around the corner in August, which as well as bringing a lot of fabulous musicians together, means a month of concerts, with three performances most nights, including folk, jazz as well as classical. We have all kinds of craft courses too, covering everything from beekeeping, printmaking to artisan baking. Meanwhile, Dartington Live moves into its second season this autumn, with a host of exciting, original live art events– watch out for this year’s family-friendly Christmas show, which was a great hit last year.
There is a wide film programme including independent, world and mainstream cinema, seven days a week at the 14th-century Barn cinema located within the grounds.
