About this event

Forest bathing is a gentle guided walk, enabling you to relax and quieten your busy mind so you can receive the medicine and wisdom of the natural environment.

Emma Capper is a certified ANFT nature and forest therapy guide. To find out more about Emma and the scientifically proven benefits of forest bathing for wellbeing please visit

Each unique walk will take place at a different location on the estate chosen to optimise the weather and seasonal conditions of the day. She will be in touch with you by email a few days before the date of your forest bathe with full details of where to park and meet for each walk. Forest bathing (‘shinrin-yoku’) means to take in the atmosphere of the natural environment through all your senses.

No need for a swimming costume!

Visiting Dartington Hall

At our 1,200 acre estate, based in South Devon, there’s plenty to explore – from the natural beauty of the grounds, to our visitor attractions and year-round events programme. You can also make a stay of it with our historic hotel or campsite, and enjoy award-winning food and drink in our cafes and restaurants.


We are a charity, and over the past few years we have begun to revitalise our vision, purpose and impact as an experimental project. As a member, you’ll feel much more a part of our work, helping us to create a Dartington that is fit for the 21st century and is a model and test-bed for a sustainable society.
