Dartington Hall is a stunning Grade I listed heritage property set within a 1,200 acre private estate near the ancient market town of Totnes. 50 distinctive bedrooms located around a medieval 14th-century courtyard offer a superb mix of heritage and comfort where you can remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Our 10 function rooms, offer natural daylight and complimentary Wi-Fi; the perfect setting for your next corporate event. We also host team building activities on the estate ranging from archery, orienteering, canoeing, rock climbing, zip wire and high ropes, laser clay pigeon shooting, foraging and bush craft and our very own Gin School.
