Carl in the kitchen went above and beyond for me I cant thank him enough. The scenery is smooth of this world the food although I'm not a veggie I didn't miss meat at all it was amazing and all veg freshly picked that day it was outstanding. Thank you for changing my life.

Words cannot suitably describe how wonderful Sharpham is. The house and gardens are stunningly beautiful, and the views to the river sublime. The food is as fresh as you can get, and some of the best I have ever tasted. Excellent tutors and course content also. Just perfect. You owe it to yourself!

A heavenly and deeply restorative place, I have been on two mindfulness courses and they have both been life-changing. The teachers are gently firm, creating a space for participants to find their own way, and the house and grounds are sublime. The vegetarian food is wonderful, too, making mindful eating a true pleasure.

I attended a Mindfulness for Beginners retreat at the very end of July 2019. It was absolutely fantastic! The place and setting are stunning, the vegetarian food wonderful and the teaching excellent. The retreat also had periods of silence and these were really refreshing I would highly recommend this retreat if you want to gain some more calm and peace in your life

An unmissable experience - I came for a relaxing time, but I got SO much more out of Sharpham, it was a life changing experience for me and there is something there for absolutely everyone. If this place is calling you - go!!! You will not regret it.
