Gardens – The Dartington Hall estate is home to 25 acres of Grade 2* listed gardens, open year round from dawn till dusk.

High Cross House built for William Curry, headmaster of Dartington Hall School, this Modernist gem was commissioned by Leonard Elmhirst and designed by William Lescaze in 1932. The house still evokes the ‘serenity, clarity and a kind of openness’ described by Curry.  High Cross is one of Britain’s most celebrated Modern residences, and The National Trust are excited to be presenting it to the public under their management, working in partnership with the owners of High Cross House, the Dartington Hall Trust.
