Winter Breaks

We are delighted to introduce our new, all-inclusive two-night winter breaks.

In partnership with local craftspeople and artists, we have blended the beautiful Wensleydale countryside with bespoke activities and experiences for our guests. These breaks are only available on specific dates, and space is limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

We will be adding further dates, and new activities, in the coming weeks. For details of our activities, and to book your place, please contact us.

Landscape Painting in Wensleydale

Based on 2 adults sharing a room - £425

Masterclass with Brian Alderman

This Winter break offers a unique way to get to know Wensleydale and develop your painting skills at the same time. Our guests have the opportunity to spend a day capturing the inspirational Wensleydale landscape, at the home of well-known local artist Brian Alderman. You will be taken to Brian’s studio at his home in Burtersett, where he will offer advice and support to help you create your own landscape painting using acrylics. This masterclass could be just for you, whether you are a complete beginner, or want to improve your existing technique. Participants may bring their favourite photos to use, or just look out of the windows for inspiration. At the end of the day, each guest will take home their very own painting.

We advise that guests should bring their own acrylic paints.
