Retreat Venues

The Sharpham Trust: an internationally-recognised centre with more than 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 in-person retreats, we'll be inviting you to connect with nature and yourself in beautiful surroundings with inspiring leaders.

We also offer Retreats at Home, sharing the spirit of Sharpham via virtual retreats.

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.


Woodland Retreats

Experience a closer, richer nature connection when you practice mindfulness on our Woodland Retreats.

You'll benefit from daily meditation and supportive mindfulness leaders, with ample time to explore the incredible Sharpham Estate. We offer 3-night, 5-night, canoeing and women's woodland retreats.


The Coach House

Retreats at The Coach House connect you deeply with nature, the land and yourself. You will get the opportunity to spend time in our gardens with our experienced gardening team and learn about our efforts to rewild the estate with our partners Ambios.

When you stay with us, you'll be in comfy, single rooms in a beautifully converted 18th century stable block that are set in the stunning scenery of Sharpham's grounds. You'll experience daily meditation and movement sessions and you'll eat delicious and homegrown vegetarian and vegan meals. 


The Hermitage

For people who have participated in a Barn retreat, or a silent retreat elsewhere, and who are experienced meditators, we offer the opportunity for a solitary, silent, and self-sufficient retreat in a small cabin in the grounds of The Barn Retreat Centre. 

The Hermitage is located in a private area of woodland a short walk from the Barn’s main building. The space contains a double bed, meditation mat and cushion, table, chair and cooking equipment. Facilities include cold running water, a gas cooking stove, wood-burner and a compost loo nearby. There is no electricity except for solar-powered lights. 


Retreats at Home

We offer virtual retreats with the best of Sharpham's experienced teachers supporting you at home, curated with the same Trust principles of community, nature connection and nurturing.

Our Retreats at Home feature guided meditations, sharing with your community of participants, gentle mindful movement practices, 121 time with your teachers and downloadable audio practices to take you away from the screen.
