We are a partner garden for Silent Space, and we invite you to take some time during your visit to sit or walk in silence – to engage more deeply with the gardens and with yourself.
As this is a managed environment, you will occasionally be aware of essential maintenance – another element of the gardens’ soundscape. Please respect the quiet time of other visitors.

If you are a postgraduate student at our on-site ecological learning institution, Schumacher College, you will automatically receive free membership for each academic year you attend (2019-20 academic year onwards).
If you are enrolled, you do not need to do anything – you’ll receive your membership pack when you arrive.
Please be aware that from the 1st of May, we will be increasing our parking charges and changing our parking system to number plate recognition.
We have taken the difficult decision to raise parking charges, as part of a range of initiatives designed to raise revenue, investment and donations to Dartington. As you know, being a charity, we offer a lot here for free – not least access to the beautiful woods and gardens. A small increase in parking fees helps us keep the estate open to all and contributes to funding our wide array of projects.
From the 1st May, the new parking charges will be:
They will continue to apply only from 9am-6pm. If you visit here regularly, there is the option to become a Dartington Member and buy an annual parking permit. Find out more here (from 1 May).
