Local information

  • Covering around 1,200 acres, the Dartington Hall Estate is one of the most interesting historic landed estates in the UK. The Estate is owned and managed by the Dartington Hall Trust, a charitable organisation specialising in the arts and learning which aims to bring together people and ideas to become a testbed and model for a sustainable society (
  • Originally built in the late 14th century, Dartington Hall became home to Leonard and Dorothy Elmhirst in 1925 when they came to Devon to find a place to start a social and cultural experiment in rural living. Over the next 50 years they created an extraordinary place. They built schools and an art college, started businesses (a cider press, a furniture company, a building company, a sawmill, farms, a textile mill, a glass-making company and many more), built a sophisticated arts centre and used it to bring world-class artists and thinkers to South Devon. The Estate is a study in architecture from the Medieval hall to High Cross House, a masterpiece in Modernism by the Swiss-American architect William Lescaze. There are 42 listed buildings on the Estate as well as a 26 acre grade II* listed garden. Facilities offered on the Estate today include an independent cinema, a hotel, an award-winning restaurant and two cafés offering locally sourced food and drink as well as a wide range of events, courses and activities throughout the year. The Estate is situated in the much sought-after village of Dartington on the outskirts of Totnes giving easy access to local schools, King Edward VI Community College and Dartington Primary School. The village also boasts a thatched public house, a local church, village stores and post office, petrol station and the Shops at Dartington complex.
