There plenty to do in the garden,  depending on weather we will travel to a couple of beauty spots nearby. This year we went to Lorna Doon Farm and Lynmouth.

Arrival is between 5-7pm on the first day, with time to settle in before gathering for a complimentary drink before dinner – a chance to meet fellow guests and the tutor leading the course. 

The studio is a spacious converted barn, with ample room for everyone to work comfortably.  There are also fourteen acres of rolling pasture, ancient beech trees, ponds, streams and an old wooded quarry in which to draw and paint.  Some tutors allow for a half day or a whole day for you to do whatever you choose.  Carry on with a piece of work here, simply relax in the house or the grounds, or take a trip out and explore some of the wonderful countryside and places of interest round and about.

What’s included

The price of your holiday includes tuition, accommodation and use of the studio, a full English breakfast every day, and a three course evening meal, followed by coffee in the lounge. On the days you are working here, light lunches are provided.  On location, we leave you to organise your own midday refreshment.  Tea and coffee making facilities are available in every bedroom and in the studio.  Sandy does all the cooking and does her best to cater for special dietary requirements, but she does need to know about them in advance!

Testimonial – Thank you for a very special week, although I am a beginner I felt happy I was being creative in many ways. I really liked the collage. You very special too with your sense of humour and a great skilful artist. Thank you for stirring up my imagination!  Mary 

I think I would be able to come to your course next year. The countryside will look very different I think.
Have a lovely summer!
Jean and I will remember the happy times we had with you for years to come. Very special for us because we do not see each other very often.
Many many thanks.
Happy painting and teaching and hopefully the students will be friendly!
