Views of Kentmere from our Lakeland Farm

Views of Kentmere from our Lakeland Farm

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Kentmere Valley and be inspired by the Lakeland fells and stunning landscape. The perfect place to create.

Details

Come for the day and get making! Workshops at Cowshed Creatives are based in a two storey barn conversion on our traditional Lakeland Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space and there is plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere Valley. Check out our website to see the full range of courses.

We work with professional artists and crafts people to create an exciting and varied programme, including traditional local crafts. Join us for a social day in a friendly, relaxed environment and nurture your own creativity. Treat yourself and master new skills!

Day workshops include a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake and refreshments throughout the day. We like to finish the day with a cup of tea and slice of cake. Eat outside or enjoy lunch by the wood burner. Free parking available nearby.

Make it a special break and stay on the farm. We have luxury camping pods on site, dependant on availability.

Coming by public transport? You can get a train to Staveley (branch line from Oxenholme, the Lake District) and it is a 2 mile walk, 15 min bike ride or give us a weeks notice and we will pick you up.
