What our students say about us

The artist's studio is a light-filled space at the top of the house, formerly a tailor's workshop. You have your own space to work here during your stay, and can bring your own choice of paint medium on most courses.
More about the studio


Outside visits are usually full days in various beautiful scenic spots in the area. Devon and Exmoor are rich in inspiring landscapes, beautiful gardens, historic buildings and coastal views.
