Carla and Bryan


"It really is a very special place you have created here - from the fabulously cosy and homely accommodation to the most incredible and inspiring studio space. Look forward to the time when I can return. Thank you." Fiona Jappy

 “The Creative Retreat is the best value art holiday I’ve found to date. Bryan is there for you, helping and encouraging all the way, and at the same time letting you get on with your own project. This is my 5th year and have always found it thoroughly enjoyable and worth every penny”. Ann Traverse, 5 times repeat customer

"We often stay in houses when we holiday and I can honestly say this is the best ever...there is nothing lacking, it's warm and extremely well equipped." Gorbals Arts Project
