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.

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.
