Dartington Collaborative Network

The term ‘Dartington Collaborative Network’ refers to the network of businesses and residential tenants across the estate, set up to foster collaboration with the Dartington Trust.

On this page you can find out more about what that means, or – if you’re a current tenant – register for free to become a Dartington Member (entitling you to discounts in the shops and food outlets found here).

The DCN is the name given to the whole network of commercial and residential tenants on the estate.

It is represented by a steering group which works closely with individuals from the Dartington Trust, ensuring that tenants’ views are communicated clearly. The group also facilitates a programme of events, activities and information sharing that:

  • Generates opportunities to cooperate on projects
  • Helps others in the network and community by sharing knowledge and skills
  • Builds new connections that enhance business enterprise, charity and community interests
  • Creates ways for tenants to connect with one another and the Trust so that information and ideas can be shared


As a tenant, you will receive communications from both the Trust and the Steering Group as part of your contractual relationship with Dartington Trust.

These communications will include vital information about estate matters that affect you as a tenant, and invitations to optional meetings and events.

If you run a business on the estate, we encourage you to be part of the DCN Directory (see below). The Steering Group puts out a call for updates and new businesses periodically.

The Steering Group is always keen to welcome new members – please enquire via dcn@dartington.org if you are interested in being a part of this.


Individual Membership is free to residential tenants or those who work for a business, charity or social enterprise that is a tenant of the Dartington estate (more about Membership here).
