Image of Lamacraft Farm external


Founded In 1960 we are a Community within the Anglican Church. The emphasis of our life is to share the prayer and worship of the Community through our everyday work and involvement with others.

Our common life and outreach is expressed in varied ways reflecting the individuals of the Community but is rooted and formed when we meet in chapel for the times of prayer and the Eucharist. Together with our personal prayer this becomes the pattern of our daily life.

Visitors are welcome to services where we try to be inclusive in language and imagery about God and at times experiment with the liturgy.


Lamacraft farm is not: simply a retreat facility, but aims to offer opportunity for relaxation, reflection or holiday by groups, individuals and families. The house and accommodation has been formed from farm buildings located in a very small settlement in the South Hams countryside with original parts of the building estimated to be over three hundred years old, and is set in six acres of land which is largely hillside with areas developed as gardens. We are situated in a beautiful area which is famous for its variety of birds and wildlife, There are many local beaches nearby and also the coastal footpath for those wanting longer walks. We are within eight miles of Kingsbridge which is the nearest main town, Alternative centres within reasonable distance include Stokenham Dartmouth, Torcross, Totnes and Salcombe.
