What's On: Family

Our year-round programme of family events is constantly being updated, so keep checking back. If you’re just looking for family films at the Barn, click here.

And don’t forget: the Dartington estate is big, beautiful and ripe for exploring! There are miles of river and forest trails, and options for affordable, family-friend food and drink for refuelling when you’re done.  Our guide to family days out is a great place to start. And if you’re thinking of coming regularly, a family membership is a way to enjoy savings across the estate whilst supporting the charitable work we do.
