Family days out at Dartington Hall

Barn Cinema

Forget the multiplex and enjoy a film experience with a difference with our beautiful independent cinema, situated in a renovated 15th century barn.

Deer Park activity packs

Let the little ones loose on our glorious park – a haven of wildlife, accessible paths and great spots for river paddling. Pick up an activity-stuffed backpack from our Visitor Centre to use with our brass rubbing trail.

Time to play

Our all-natural wild play area, designed and installed by EarthWrights, can be found opposite Space Studios, close to the main car park and Great Hall.

This a beautiful, gated safe space for children to play – and there are picnic tables too. Why not make a meal of it?

Camp Dartington

Located in a truly stunning beauty spot, with views all the way to Haytor and excellent facilities. Plus access to woodland walks, river swims and all the eateries, gardens and activities of Dartington Hall on your (metaphorical) doorstep.

Numerous workshops for kids to get involved in throughout the year can be found in our events system, and it’s also worth checking out some of the brilliant organisations found on our estate: Dynamic Adventures(adrenaline-fuelled activities), WildWise (wild outdoor experiences), Crazy About Clay (pottery fun) Arts Lab (community arts workshops) and MudTots (forest school for smaller children).
