Meditation retreats at The Barn - stay in kindly community



Our popular and acclaimed meditation retreat centre in the Buddhist tradition is set in the stunning and peaceful River Dart valley where up to 10 people join together for a week living in community.

Stay in your own single room in a friendly atmosphere of fellowship, sit in daily meditations, work in our organic vegetable gardens and explore the wonder of the Sharpham Estate on the River Dart. See The Barn's Covid-19 measures here
