what you said

“I have run several academic conferences at Dartington over the past few years. The location and setting of the venue are sublime, with a mixture of historic buildings, imaginative catering and great meeting rooms and internet. The courtyard and grounds offer memorable outdoor space for informal discussions or a chance to clear the mind between sessions. And I have been consistently impressed by the excellent service, clear guidance and flexibility in planning and the assistance on the day from staff.” 

– Prof Peter Ashwin, University of Exeter

“We very much enjoyed hosting our retreat at Dartington. Our students loved spending time in the beautiful gardens, eating outside, and taking in the fresh air. The whole estate has a calming effect as soon
as you pass through the gates. Staff were lovely and attentive to our every need, and the variety of accommodation worked really well for our mixed group.”
