Connecting people to the natural world

Welcome to Sharpham

Welcome to Sharpham

Sharpham Trust is an education and conservation charity based on a stunning 550 acre estate adjoining the River Dart in South Devon.


At the heart of the Sharpham Trust ethos is our desire to reconnect people with nature and to promote the practice of mindfulness. We provide a range of activities and events that aim to help people of all ages to gain a deeper insight into themselves and the world around them. These activities include  mindfulness courses  and retreats for health and wellbeing, as well as  outdoor learning  and  the arts

There are lots of different ways to visit and experience the Sharpham Estate, all listed in our ‘Whats On’ calendar. Please contact us for more information, we would love to hear from you.

"I see a place here today which has just the right balance of obvious care for the place without overdoing it. I love the atmosphere. It’s not overformal or over manicured. This is part of its deep beauty. There aren’t intrusive instructions or signage or “visitor services” on every corner, but it feels loved and I feel welcomed. Please keep this balance."
