There is a varied adult programme available to you making the most of what the seasons and the landscape have to offer such as:

  • Public events such as star gazing, natural history, willow weaving, wild food and mindful exploration of Sharpham.
  • Away Days & weekends which can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your group and can be designed to inspire friendship, creativity, innovation, leadership and teamwork through a range of outdoors-based activities that are fun, creative and provide opportunity for personal and group reflection.
  • Adult education courses including walks & talks on the  history of the house and landscape and the estate's wildlife and natural history  as well as wild food foraging, stargazing, natural craft events.
  • Youth programmes offered include our flagship mental health recovery Spring to Life  programme and our many and varied trainee and volunteer programmes.

A place to get active

In the words of our visitors

  • Thank you Anna (and John) for a memorable couple of days. Lots of really genuine and deep enthusiasm from the young people that shared the experience. The beauty of the place and your warmth and clarity really has had an effect this year. It would be great to return next year and build on that with some of the same students (currently nearly all keen to sign up now!) It was a real privilege to be part of and witness such a real epiphany for some of them, concentrating on creating space to grow and wonder was definitely the best approach Thank you so much.
  • Bruce (and Louise) and 17 grubby, tired, transformed teenagers (A school group of 13-15 year-olds taking part in Forest School type activities and camping out overnight in shelters on the estate)
