Residential Groups

Are you looking for a venue for an overnight or longer course, workshop or training?

We welcome groups looking to hire indoor or outdoor spaces for residential Totnes programmes, particularly where those groups support the principles of the Sharpham Trust. Concessions available for Voluntary, Community, Schools and Charity Organisations. 

Sharpham House is not a hotel but more a special house in a spectacular setting where we hope you can feel at home and enjoy the relaxed, friendly atmosphere.


We can accommodate up to 31 guests mostly in twin-bedded rooms, with a few ensuite. Our Music Room provides a comfortable social space, while our Tuesday Room provides a useful workshop room. Our library is well stocked with philosophical books and our dining room opens on to a garden terrace.

The food in the house is vegetarian and sourced, whenever possible, from our kitchen garden. The estate farms produce award-winning wines and cheese as well as organic eggs, meat and vegetables.

Please contact the bookings secretary on 01803 732542 for further information.
