About our campus & estate

Dartington Trust is a centre for learning, arts, ecology and social justice based on a 1,200 acre site near Totnes, in Devon.

We are located in the popular visitor destination of the South Hams, and nestled between Dartmoor National Park and the Jurassic Coast of South Devon.

As a campus, we offer everything you’d expect – including beautiful learning spaces in all shapes and sizes, student accommodation, and exceptional facilities that are freely available to you during your course studies. However, our estate offers so much more than that.


If you’re attending our taught programmes on-site, you’ll need somewhere to stay. We’ve got you covered…



From our libraries to our professional-grade studio space, you’ll have great resources to support your studies.
