Our Work


We see thousands of visitors from across the world join us here every year at Dartington. They take part in our eventscourses, and festivals and enjoy our cinemashopsfood and drink and listed Gardens.

All of this activity goes hand-in-hand with the huge range of projects, businesses and conservation work that are happening here on the estate every day. Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst bought this estate in 1925 and embarked on what they called the Dartington Experiment to regenerate a rural community. Today, that work continues as we aim to be a pioneer of deep personal and societal change – and below you’ll find examples of how that ambition is bought to life at Dartington Hall.
