Dartington’s 14th-century medieval courtyard makes for a unique accommodation experience at the heart of the Summer School activities. The 50 bedrooms are situated in two wings, East and West, with a variety of bedroom types and bathroom configurations. The country-style rooms are styled to embrace modern fashions as well as the heritage of Dartington Hall. Due to the age of the buildings, each room varies in size and bathroom facilities: the Summer School team are able to advise on dimensions and bathroom locations for specific rooms.
The decision was taken to no longer offer televisions in our Courtyard Rooms, to encourage guests to unwind and immerse themselves in nature. We still have an excellent wi-fi connection in our rooms.
