A fond farewell…

After nine enjoyable years hosting art holidays – and the occasional walking group – Sandy and Mark will be saying goodbye to Shorland Old Farm at the end of June.  We’re not planning to go far.  We love North Devon and Exmoor too much.  We just plan to scale down a little.

We have loved it here.  I know many of our guests feel the same way we do about Old Shorland: that it is a very special place.  We really will miss it here and are so pleased we took the plunge nine years ago to come here and run art holidays and courses.  We have met some wonderful people, many of whom we now consider our friends, and we do hope you will keep in touch.

We’d also like to thank those of you who have remained so patient and loyal over the last fifteen months, while we juggled course dates – often several times – because of Covid.  Fingers crossed, things are starting to look up and those booked for the remainder of the season will finally get their much-delayed break.

New owners, Anna and Mike, will be taking over the running of all the existing courses between now and the end of October.  We wish them all the very best and hope they are as happy at Old Shorland as we have been.
