An excellent 8 week introduction to mindfulness with Teachers Lynn and Caroline. Its the start of a very powerful journey with moments of frustration, challenges and elation. The course is practical, easy to follow and incorporate into daily life. Would i recommend it 100% YES!

A gem of a place! Spent a happy week here on a "Mindfulness Through Singing" retreat. The staff were unfailingly kind, the food was superb, and the mansion house and grounds were simply stunning. A very restorative experience.

Enter into pure tranquillity in this most resplendent setting where you will be welcomed with love from the moment you step into the exquisitely held sacred space of Sharpham House, where the land will rise up to meet your feet, your tummy will be filled with wonderful nourishing food and your body will be safe and comfortable, a place to find harmony, friendship and peace, I cannot wait to return again to sample the further delights of this most special of places!

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 !
