Your Creative, Rewilded Retreat

Your Creative, Rewilded Retreat

Devon Sculpture Park is a creative, rewilded retreat. Refresh and reimagine surrounded by art, Wilded Capability Brown gardens, ancient waterways, wildlife and endless sea views.

‘One of the most beautiful gardens I have seen…’ Toby Buckland, gardener, TV presenter and author.

This timeless, historic retreat has been carefully restored to enable visitors to deepen their creative energies. A recent visitor described it as ‘a place in perfect harmony’. A place where raw, primitive environmental art settles alongside thought provoking conceptual sculpture and edgy Street art. Where art is place and the place is art. Where living sculpture can thrive.

Drop-in adults retreat for a few hours or the whole day for £12. View art, visit the Wilded Capability Brown gardens, understand Rewilding and talk with artists. Wander the cascade gardens and take in the endless sea views. Relax from bench to bench. Reach back in time. Lean into your inner self.

You can settle in at The Terraces for slow cooked, healthy cooking with relaxed, informal service.

Come to this extraordinary retreat to rest or sketch. Relax and write. Ponder or perform. Meditate or mediate. Design or draw. Film or photograph. Invent, co-create, make or simply reconnect. Find it here, Rewild yourself. Creatively retreat.

Companies, charities and public sector bodies can retreat for a day starting at £50 per person including room hire, lunch, refreshments, intro talk and walk plus access to the art exhibitions and Wilded Capability Brown gardens.

An Outdoor Centre for the Arts

Devon Sculpture Park is a new kind of outdoor art centre. We are not just one of the UK’s larger sculpture parks by acreage, we have the ambition to be a broader centre for the arts.

We were established by resident artist, Philip Letts, to support sculpture, visual arts both indoor and outdoor plus design, film, theatre, books, music, cooking and innovation.

At the bottom of the Capability Brown gardens is a sizable natural amphitheatre where we plan to host theatre, music and performance art – overlooking the sea.

We are a platform for artists to show how uniquely they can challenge our thinking, how effectively they enable us to see things differently. If you would like to talk to us about putting on an event just email hello@devonsculpturepark.org. We would love to hear from you.

The Capability Brown gardens and ‘ART WILDED’ exhibition are open from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am – 4pm. Adults £12, children under 12 £6.
