Retreat Venues

The Sharpham Trust: an internationally-recognised centre with 40 years' experience in offering mindfulness retreats & teaching.

We have a variety of venues on our beautiful 550-acre estate in South Devon: including nature-immersed solitary and woodland retreats, communal retreats at The Barn and in The Coach House, or stay amid history and elegance in the Georgian mansion that is Sharpham House.

On each of our retreats, we'll be inviting you to connect with nature and yourself in beautiful surroundings with inspiring leaders.

Sharpham House

Sharpham House is the perfect place to experience a mindfulness retreat: a Grade I-listed Georgian mansion at the centre of the stunning Sharpham Estate, where you're nurtured on delicious vegetarian and vegan food (much of it grown organically in our Walled Garden). A wide range of themed retreats are run all year round.

The Barn Retreat

Our popular meditation retreat venue in the Buddhist tradition where up to 11 people join together living in community, sitting together in daily meditations and mindfully tending our organic vegetable gardens. You'll have your own single room, get to eat produce from what is grown on the land here and you'll also get time to explore the wonder of the beautiful and contemplation-inspiring Sharpham Estate.
