My friend and I have just returned from a lovely 4 day painting holiday at Weston House with Catherine. Catherine was very encouraging with the art tuition and gave lots of helpful tips. I would highly recommend Weston House and the painting courses and hope to return again.

I was amazed how much I learned in just a few days.

I have recently returned from a wonderful 5 days painting holiday at Weston House. The welcome from Peter and Catherine was warm and relaxed. The tuition from Catherine was perfect for me as a beginner, always with an injection of humour! Peter's meals were delicious and plentiful, locally sourced or homemade where possible. I would highly recommend Weston House for a painting holiday. Absolutely lovely.

I was surprised and pleased with the results I was able to get with Catherine’s help. I learned a lot about the techniques involved in setting up a painting.

Thank you very much to both of you, for caring so much for people!   And Catherine as an artist, a patient and cheerful artist can do very, very well!  3rd time for me attending Inspired Painting Holidays and it will not be the last one, surely!

I was greatly looking forward to my visit at Weston House - I was not disappointed! The painting instruction, by Catherine, was very encouraging and helpful and I feel confident that I really benefited from her extensive expertise as a professional artist. The course was split between time in the art studio and two days out at nearby gardens - which provided a rich source of inspiration for painting. There were regular breaks throughout the day and the pace was leisurely but still afforded plenty of time to refine and complete any paintings you were working on.

The small group ensured that everyone had plenty of attention and assistance from Catherine.

I recommend anyone considering a week-long break in Devon, combined with art instruction to look no further than Weston House. It was excellent in all respects. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

I am really pleased with what I achieved and a lot of that was due to you Catherine, your patience and your ability to see what I wanted/needed to do.

Another great week.   I've learnt so much and enjoyed the days out and the company.   Wonderful food and charming hosts. Thank you Peter and Catherine.

The course I attended had plenty of tutoring but was so free and easy and also fun.  I loved the light airy attic studio and also the fact that the group was small and very mixed in terms of skills. The accommodation was lovely and comfortable and also spotless and Peter's meals were fantastic.  I would have no qualms in returning and recommending courses to others.

I thoroughly enjoyed my watercolour short break. I have more confidence with my art and watercolours now. I would love to return and do another course with Catherine and show my art and my new found skill and confidence.
