Local artist, Mark Daniels has hidden several of his hand made little foxes around the garden for you to find, he makes one every time he spots a fox in real life but the ceramic ones are just as cute.
So, browse the studios, meet the artists and see their wares. Come and check out the colourful paintings that currently adorn the dining room and bar walls by three supreme illustrators. Have a home cooked lunch, a drink from the bar or a slice of one of our home baked cakes. This Saturdays lunch is a roast veg lasagne, a local pork Ragu, fresh salads and local breads, served til 4.
