Large Holiday House For Art Lovers

Hurstone is a large holiday house for art lovers; a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, the peace and quiet, and the plethora of artistic talent in the area. Wander from room to room and you’ll notice original works on the walls and one-off ceramics adorning cupboard tops and window sills; there’s plenty to admire, to interpret and to enjoy. On the doorstep are studios where printmakers, ceramacists and sculptors work; visits can be made by arrangement to see the beautiful pieces they produce or to see them at work, courses and workshops can be arranged.

The surrounding area has many artists taking part in the annual Somerset Art Weeks, Devon Open Studios and Dorset Art Weeks, and there's the  biannual 10 Parishes Festival too. Just a stone’s throw away are ceramicists who offer visits by appointment and are happy to arrange day courses. Go along and learn how to throw a pot, experience the mindfulness of pottery or perhaps the delight of printmaking. There are small towns nearby with exceptional galleries, within an easy drive you will arrive at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton, East Quay at Watchet, The Broomhill Estate at Barnstaple and Devon Guild of Crafts at Bovey Tracey. Further afield in Bruton is Hauser & Wirth with thought provoking exhibitions and a work of art itself; the Piet Oudolf architectural landscaped garden. With such an impressive array of talent in such a small area, Hurstone is the perfect place to stay for art holidays in the South West. Book today!
