Dartington Hall History
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, 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.
