The buildings in which the studios are now located have had a variety of uses for many years – largely connected with agriculture and horticulture.
The area which is now an attractive courtyard has over the years housed many different animal, including sheep, cattle and occasionally pigs! The agricultural connection still continues with sheep still being kept in the adjacent building and fields.
The first major part of our renovation was opened in 2007 and we have been delighted with the progress so far and the positive feedback from visitors and resident artists- all who enjoy the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.
The most recent development has been the rebuilding of this old cottage which now houses our new café and gallery space, together with new studios.
