Love Dartington

At The Dartington Hall Trust, we have an amazing history and heritage behind us. We’re passionate about our past – it’s shaped who we are today. And we’re equally excited about our plans to create a whole new legacy of memories for generations to come.

With rolling parkland, farmland, woods, river and gardens, there’s always something new to discover. And a year-round arts programme, learning and craft courses to tap into.

A magical place to stay, showcasing estategrown food and Devon artisan producers. Membership puts you at the heart of all this.

Join Dartington

As a Member, you’ll feel much more a part of our work. You’ll be helping us to build and nurture a thriving estate and, in a wider context, a more progressive and connected world.

Members receive:

Invites to ‘future plans’ discussions, with opportunity to shape the debate
Exclusive updates on what’s on and what’s changing plus ‘behind the scenes’ demonstrations and talks
Preferential discounts as a thank you for your support.

Arts that test out new ground

Our programme is becoming more experimental and diverse, taking creative risks and bursting with new ideas. From our International Summer School & Festival, to new live and visual arts, and work with our local communities. Elsewhere, we’re introducing fresh energy into the estate, having conserved and opened up our 700-year-old Deer Park and restoring Queen’s Marsh as a wetland and wildlife habitat. This is an estate you’ll want to explore time and time again.

Learning that never stops

Schumacher College’s transformative courses in sustainable living… Plans for radical new research and debate on pressing world issues – such as climate change… A School for Social Entrepreneurs that enables people to achieve positive change in their communities… And a Craft programme created from the heart that has purpose, uniqueness and love channelled into it. The 1,200 acre estate acts as a ‘living classroom’ of endless possibilities.
