Experience a sense of tranquillity at our impressive Grade II* listed gardens, which have been shaped and inspired by the remarkable custodians of this special place for over 1,000 years. On your visit to the 26 acres of tended grounds, you’ll find a range of stunning features with beautiful vistas and creative sculptures, including ancient trees and impressive plant species.

Our gardens team have been working hard to bring some of the hidden secrets of the gardens to life. On arrival, you’ll pick up a beautifully design gardens guide (included in the ticket price), and there’s also an activity trail for children to engage in with hidden paths to explore. Stay awhile and enjoy delicious food from The White Hart Restaurant or The Green Table café.

Great for kids; Families can enjoy our all-new children’s nature trail within the gardens, with inspired nature activities including bug hotels, den building and more.

Our gorgeous new trail map included in your ticket price – make sure you pick one upon arrival!



Join one of our highly popular, volunteer-led Garden Tours (duration: 90 minutes) to learn more about the heritage, beauty and historical features of the Gardens.

If a tour is available on your chosen date, you will be given Tour ticket options during the booking process. You can check upcoming dates on our website (link – About The Gardens – Visit Dartington | Dartington) – but from 1 October 2021, the tours are every Wednesday at 11am and are FREE with your Gardens general entry ticket.

We are hugely grateful to our wonderful volunteers for offering these tours.

Dewerstone Outdoor Lifestyle

As an outdoor brand, we take a lot from the environment, be it using the landscapes to shoot photos in or being inspired by the jungle for product patterns. Embracing an outdoor lifestyle means being an advocate for the spaces we love. Wherever you are on our home planet, the importance of protecting its flowing rivers, magical woodland and the endless trails linking them cannot be understated. But we can’t do it alone. Dewerstone’s partnership with 1% for the Planet, Climate Neutral and Eden Reforestation Projects means we are held to account for our company's responsibility goals. We owe the environment everything, we wouldn’t exist without it and we’re all about paying it back. Open 10-5pm Tues - Sat
