What facilities are available?

You may be staying out in the countryside in a farmhouse, but that doesn't mean your stay at the Well House Haven Art Venue will be uncomfortable!

You will enjoy a self-serve continental breakfast each morning with home-produced eggs from our own hens and ducks. An outdoor barbeque area is available for your own use and a fridge for the use of residents.
