Accommodation is in our 200 year old farm house which has three spare rooms on the upper floor, including a dedicated bathroom and toilet facilities for those three rooms. Both the Farm House and the studio are in their own four acres of land which includes ample parking.
*Please note as there are 3 rooms and 4 potential attendees you may be required to share a room.
If you wish to attend the course and stay locally in a little more luxury, one of local places to stay which we would recommend is:
Broom Hall Hotel: this is the closest hotel and most luxurious and within a short walking distance of the workshop: -

The nearest train station is Brandon, however it's easier to get to Norwich and take a bus to Watton.
As public transport is poor we can collect and return attendees from Norwich Train station.
There would be one collection time for all attendees who require transport: please advise us at booking if you require collecting or dropping off at Norwich train station.
