The combination of mindfulness in nature works so well. I've been on hundreds of retreats over the years, but none so nurturing as this...
The environment and ethos were just what I needed and more helpful than ever I could have hoped. I felt cynical and empty when I arrived and am leaving filled with love, hope and gratitude.

This retreat takes place in our beautiful woodland campsite area in the grounds of Sharpham House, surrounded by nature and with the River Dart and 550 acres of the Sharpham Estate to explore. The Estate includes a diversity of natural habitats including reed beds, salt marsh, ancient woodland with a rich variety of wildlife, flora and fauna – all set within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Your accommodation will be in comfortable and spacious bell tents, which includes a foam mattress, warm 13.5 tog duvet and bedding, a small table and a solar light. We like to call it comfortable camping rather than glamping! The tents offer a good opportunity for those new to camping and a bit of extra comfort for more seasoned campers.
There is a covered fire hearth area for wet weather. We use compost toilets on the site and there is an indoor shower available in the courtyard of the house approximately 3-4 minutes walk away as well as 2 flushing toilets for those that prefer.
Our cooks produce high-quality seasonal, vegetarian food for our guests. We source food whenever possible from our kitchen garden and support local food suppliers - we can accommodate a range of dietary needs.
All bell tents are single occupancy to give you time to yourself for rest and contemplation. The woodland campsite includes a covered outdoor kitchen and dining area and the retreat is fully catered with delicious and locally-sourced vegetarian food, as well as food foraged from the wild.
