An extraordinary Guesthouse with a twist of Magic: The Boutique Art House combines a wonderfully unique guesthouse alongside a changing programme of fabulous retreats, gallery, studio, talks, and exciting events within the most beautifully curated space.
The founder, Sadie Spikes, as an artist and maker, is passionately driven to create, design, and make places and objects that inspire the soul, soothe the spirit, and lift the heart, compelled by a yearning to return to the old school and the real! Love, laughter, sensation, and space, in the attempt to momentarily stop time; The Boutique is a wonderful place for relaxation, connection, great conversation face to face, and a celebration of the here and now.
Alongside the Boutique Art House three lovingly restored Trailervans wait on a magical farm in Wiltshire, dens and portals designed specifically to give some much needed space and old school fun, hired for group bookings, escapes and creative retreats, fabulous photoshoots and film: also running events, inspiring talks, fabulous picnics and all manner of wonderful things. Please contact Sadie for more information.
Sadie an artist combines the Guesthouse and Events programme with her own creative practice producing her own artwork from her studio. 2015 has also seen the beginning of a wonderful new relationship with the fantastic A Loquacious mind, the exciting and dynamic Bristol Based illustration and photographic collaborative, promising some beautiful and interesting projects ahead.
