Discover art and craft at its Devonshire source from now until 22nd September with the Devon Open Studios. 

With many artists residing in studios across Devon, open studios are a great opportunity to understand artists’ processes more clearly and buy directly from the artist or maker. Many work in interesting locations you might not normally get to explore while on holiday, so could make for an interesting excursion.

Visit the Devon Artists’ Network to find out more and find an artist to visit.

Why not take a week to explore from this beautiful base in Tawton (sleeps 12). It also has a special offer for the week commencing 14th September, with a 20% reduction in price from £1035 to £828.
