DARTINGTON

An old place with a new story

Dartington is not just a beautiful place to visit. It attracts people with big ideas who want to change the world.

Dartington is changing

We are undergoing a period of significant transformation.

Our in-house team has updated our website with a fresh new feel to help usher in this new era – we hope you like it. It’s an on-going project, and just the start of the changes you will see at Dartington.

Our events programme, our buildings and our land and woods will all see exciting improvements.
