Places to stay....

We are very happy to offer basic overnight accommodation in our cosy Shepherds Hut which is situated next door to the Studio.


Ideal for those visiting from further afield, the Shepherds Hut offers basic "glamping" accommodation on site. It is cosy and comfortable and is equipped with a double bed, sink, kettle, radio, toaster and log burner and has use of the Studio bathroom.


Perfect for a quiet comfortable evening before or after your class in the Studio, or perhaps a base for a non-painting partner to explore the area on foot?

Alternatively, if glamping's not your thing, there are a myriad of fantastic hotels, guest houses and B&B's in and around Abergavenny. Here are a few that are close to us and come very well recommended.
