A very special place where history, nature and learning come together.

A 700-year-old story awaits you – about the people who lived here, the magnificent landscape, the deer themselves and the abundant wildlife. This is one of many unspoilt natural habitats here on the 1,200 acre Dartington Hall estate.

An exciting new development for Dartington


The Deer Park project aims to conserve and protect a significant piece of Devon’s cultural history, increase public engagement with an ancient monument and historic landscape, and develop a heritage interpretation offer that will benefit the local community and visitors to the area.

Skills development, learningvolunteering and community involvement are at the project’s heart.

Specifically, it will repair and conserve Dartington’s historic Deer Park Wall through essential and lasting conservation works, create new accessible and interpreted walks through the surrounding parkland, and encourage more people to engage in the landscape including through a new schools’ programme and new volunteering opportunities.
