The Shops at Dartington


Overview

The Shops at Dartington, set within the grounds of the Dartington Estate, is rich with history and remains as popular now as it has ever been. With a selection of 15 shops and restaurants, there’s good reason why this one-stop shopping village has been a much-loved family destination for over four decades.

Here, you’ll find a vibrant food hall dedicated to regional food and drink, a kitchen shop for the latest gadgets, inspiring objets d’art crafts to include a wool shop, Dartington handmade crystal and glassware, a gallery, fashion beauty gallery, a treasure trove of toys and games, and two tempting cafes spilling out onto the pedestrianised pavement and garden.

Book a pottery class for a hands-on experience or check out the calendar of family events. With plenty of parking available, there is something for everyone.

While you’re here, the Dartington Estate is a lively day-out for kids and adults alike with beautiful gardens, the historic Deer Park, an all-natural wild play area, a range of bookable workshops, not to mention picturesque walks across the estate.

Open 7 days a week – Monday – Saturday 9.30am-5.30pm and Sundays 10am-5pm.
