The Stable and Yurt
Summer residencies use The Stable or the Yurt.
The Stable is a small, rustic barn room adjoining our Gallery Barn. Simply furnished it has a single cast iron bed, a comfortable chair, desk, vintage paraffin stove, kettle, and views across the open fields. Outside there is a cast iron cradle for lighting evening fires. There is no electricity in The Stable; evening lighting is via candlelight and paraffin lanterns. A wonderful retreat space.
The Yurt sleeps one or two. It has two large comfortable sofas that are used for sleeping (duvets, sheets and pillows provided), a log burning stove, kettle, paraffin lanterns and candles. It is located by a pretty stream a short walk from the studio. Outside there is a fire pit area and sun loungers to relax in.
There is access to a private annex kitchen in the nearby farmhouse for artists staying in The Stable or Yurt. This is equipped with a small table top electric cooker, fridge, sink, electric kettle and toaster. Adjacent to the annex there is a shower room with toilet and sink.
January and November residencies are offered the use of the luxury holiday cottage at Hogchester. It is a two-bedroom cottage (one room with king-size bed, one room with two single beds) with bathroom, lounge, and kitchen diner (with Aga). These residency periods, and the accommodation, will be shared with one other selected artist.
