What a gem hidden deep in the Devon countryside. Sharpham House is very, very special. I had the most wonderful weekend, I can't wait to return and have already booked my next retreat! I was gently guided throughout the weekend by the very special Lynne (H) and Ramiro, the silences were wonderful, the food is delicious and prepared with love, the house and grounds are stunning and the people are amazing. My highlight was the silent mindful walk, incredibly powerful and moving. You have to experience it! I highly recommend Sharpham, no wonder everyone has given it 5 star reviews! A huge thank you to everyone involved.

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 !

Enjoyed the weekend. Through the practical exercise, teachings and group discussions, learnt a lot about what a mindfulness practice is about. Would like to thank everyone at Sharpham Trust for creating and organizing a retreat that acts as an excellent introduction to mindfulness practices. The hospitality provided and location made the whole experience special.

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.

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.
