Wonderful place to go on retreat: Gorgeous location, comfortable accommodation, delicious healthy food and welcoming staff. Caring retreat leaders make for a deeply nourishing experience, even with COVID-19 restrictions in place. Have only been home 2 days and missing Sharpham already! This was my third visit- I'll be back!

Such a stunning place to come for a Mindfulness retreat and digital detox. Amazing vegetarian food, kind and friendly staff, and all felt very safe, even during this Covid period.

Tranquil, calm and thought provoking. Such a wonderful immersive experience. There is so much caring and support I cannot recommend Sharpham highly enough. And the food is incredible!

Sharpham has a special place in my heart. I did the 5-day silent retreat before life took a new & different course as a result of covid. I loved the whole experience from the gently guided meditation practice & talks, gorgeous home-made & grown meals, mindful walks in the beautiful surroundings, mindful sharing with others, and lots of time & space to 'be' without all of life's distractions. I can definitely see myself coming back for more. Thank you to all the team for your love and kindness, and being so supportive during a testing time.
