19 – 24 July

House summer painting retreat

Relax and enjoy

With no tuition and no itinerary to follow, whatever your experience or ability, this painting retreat is a chance to relax in the company of other like-minded painters, and be inspired by by the beautiful countryside of Exmoor and North Devon.  Or maybe just read a book, go for a walk, or sit and take in the scenery.

Our spacious and well-equipped studio will be there for you to use, and if the weather’s good, there is plenty of inspiration in the gardens and grounds, plus stunning coast and countryside all around.  To get a taster of the place, take a look at our gallery.
