I have attended two retreats at Sharpham now. I would recommend it highly for anyone interested in mindfulness. The location is perfect and the facilities and food are excellent. The retreat facilitators were outstanding on both retreats I attended. I will definitely return !

My recent retreat at Sharpham (Singing and Mindfulness), delivered everything it'says 'on the tin'! Inspiring, nurturing, peaceful and with highly skilled retreat leaders. The food was excellent with my special diet catered for with care and attention. A truly restorative few days. Already recommending to friends. Thank you.

Sharpham House at Christmas. An extraordinary and very special opportunity to meditate and learn about mindfulness in a Grade 2 listed property and walk freely within some of the most beautiful and peaceful grounds imaginable. A welcome like no other with an experienced team of coordinators to guide, inspire and support, not forgetting some utterly delicious vegetarian food - special thanks to Janet for this. Shakti Yoga dance in the morning was a new and delightful experience with Maite. Overall a wonderful experience, well away from the crowds and the pressure that the festive period can bring.

I attended a 3 day woodland retreat in August 2018. I was really looking forward to spending time outdoors and reconnecting with nature, but the actual experience far surpassed all of my expectations. The location is perfect, the tents simple but large and comfortable, the food amazing and cooked with love, the course leaders Shoshana and Rupert were truly inspiring and Pip and Linda looked after us with great tenderness and care. I was blessed to attend the retreat with a group of beautiful beings who shared deep reflections and supported one another with real kindness, respect and a sense of shared humanity. I can't believe how deeply we bonded and how much healing we experienced in three days. I shall most definitely return and I cannot recommend this retreat too highly.

I have just been on a retreat for mindfulness for beginners at The Sharpham trust, I stayed for 3 days and enjoyed every minute, from the staff and Teacher's and all the others on the retreat. The food was lovely and surrounding area was beautiful. I have come away with a clear mind and feeling relaxed. Thank You!!

“The meals were fantastic and prepared with great love, care and attention. Even as a meat eater, I loved the vegetarian food and did not miss meat at all.”
