Painting at Shorland Old FarmI came for painting time & beautiful scenery – and got so much more!  Superb food, comfortable rooms and welcoming hosts. Art group from Bucks June 2016
Wonderful experience – so welcoming.  Hosts and meals fantastic.  Sandy and Mark go the other mile to make sure you enjoy.  Pastels with Carol was amazing, learnt such a lot.  Hope to return…
A wonderful place to unwind and relax.  Pastels course with Carol Kibble April 2016
I’m seriously thinking of becoming a permanent fixture here.  Great tutor, great room, fantastic food and perfect hosts.
Outstanding, well worth a visit.  With the tutor we had and the lovely scenery, it was bound to be a good trip,but what was most memorable was the warmth and friendliness of Sandy & Mark – thanks for a lovely time.  Painting holiday with Paul Weaver Oct 2015
I just wanted to thank you personally for making my stay with you so very enjoyable.  Your beautiful farmhouse, hospitality, friendship and food…just everything is so perfect.  I can honestly say I have never been more enthusiastic about staying in a hotel/guesthouse than I have been in Shorland Old Farm.  You both put yourselves out so much to make it the perfect retreat it is and so relaxing with everything you do.  The studio is such a lovely asset to have so I do congratulate you on making it such a delightful place to stay.  Even the countryside and the walks on your land, before breakfast, are just perfect and so enjoyable.  And then the cooked breakfast awaits you…just bliss!Shorland Art Course-15 (640x427)

Felt like a home from home… As guests we feel like part of Shorland, even if only for a short time. .. Everything about the accommodation surpassed expectations… We were all made to feel so welcome and settled in almost instantly… Excellent value for money.  Art holiday with Anthony Barrow, July 2014
