A place to get active

In the words of our visitors

  • As my son is Autistic, I know that he can be very difficult especially in group situations. I am very used to picking him up from school or groups with the teacher or leader looking very serious and wanting "a chat" about him which usually leads somewhere difficult. It has been lovely to see you come round the corner with him and you both smiling and you bringing positivity with you about him. Thank you for seeing in him the boy I know he is. I just wanted to let you know as it has meant a lot to me and a lot to him.
  • Jane (parent)

Away Days

Are you looking for somewhere to reinspire your group to take on the next challenge? Or a place where they can relax, regroup and reconnect?

Sharpham is a stunning setting in which to run your business or company away day. The range of environments from woodlands, farmland, built heritage and access to the river Dart sets the scene, where the skilled and knowledgeable staff follow up with a range of activities to suit your interest and your wallet.

Sharpham vineyard offers award winning wine tastings and tours, and al fresco meals from their award winning cafe. The rich and diverse history of the Sharpham Estate, with stories of the wealthy naval captain commissioning the Palladian villa and landscape works in the late 18 th  century to the feckless great grandson who lost it all betting on a spider race captivates the imagination.

There are options of activities in the natural world, with canoe trips on the river, bushcraft and survival skills in the woods or conservation and traditional heritage craft activities in the landscape including hedge laying and dry stone walling. These activities get you out and active, awakening the senses with the beautiful Sharpham scenery. Spend a night building your own shelter and sleep under the stars , strengthening team bonds and building friendships or entertain yourselves with a classical piano rendition in the music room or banquet in the dining room and out on the terrace – the main house sleeps 30. Non residential away days are also an option.
