Sharpham Partnership Estate

The Sharpham Estate on the River Dart near Dartington Hall and south of Totnes is a 1000 year old farm of five hundred acres owned by the Sharpham Trust, producing its own fine wines and hand-made cheeses.


Since the 1980s the Sharpham Trust has been dedicated to producing organic wines and cheeses on its sheltered and fertile land. Visitors are welcome to walk a trail on the estate.



The house on the estate dates from 1770 and was designed by Sir Robert Taylor.
