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.

Sharpham run very affordable, generally excellent meditation courses. The food is worth it alone!! There is a magical, calming energy in the house and the beautiful grounds. If the world is getting you down come here and recharge yourself. Can't recommend it enough.

I spent last weekend (24th July 2020) on the 3 night Woodland Retreat with Canoeing. It was a truly wonderful experience, made more interesting by the stormy weather. There is nothing like being in your own comfortable bell tent with only a sliver of fabric between you and the wind and the rain. It was made it as easy as possible to manage the social distancing and it did not seem to impact on the experience. I can't speak highly enough of the retreat leader (Ollie Frame), the three canoe leaders (Hannah, Nigel and David) and Barry, who served us all individually our 3 delicious meals every day. My two children accompanied me, and we all had a wonderful time and I'm sure we will be back again before too long. This was my first time at Sharpham House, but I have been to the Barn Retreat 3 times and it is really the most magical place to spend some quiet time. Highly recommended.
