Higher Bowden's Family Art Loft


New (2014) family Art Loft

Higher Bowden Holiday Cottages announces its new "Art Loft" for 2014. The Art Loft provides children of all ages with a fun place to go and create a unique reminder of their holiday. Why go on holiday and buy a mass produced souvenir when you can create a unique memory of your holiday using local material. The facility is a blend of traditional art and craft combined with the latest technology for children who can create digital images using smart phones/tablets and print onto wood or share on their social media pages.

The activities include:

  • Crayoning: coloring pictures provided by Pennywell Farm
  • Creating wall murals.
  • Painting on "beach stones".
  • Make a sketch.
  • Origami.
  • Making children's jewellery.
  • Nature discovery trail.
  • Ceramic painting.
  • Digital painting
  • 3D capture.

Each week we will have a different "art" theme which will be linked to local events throughout the year such as the crab festival, Dartmouth Music festival, Dartmouth Regatta, Agatha Christie week etc. The Art Loft is a 1st for a holiday cottage business in the UK and offers something for everyone.

The Art Loft will be open all day for simple activities (such as drawing) but there will be dedicated times throughout the week when expert supervision is required for activities such as ceramic painting and digital printing. While the children have fun the parents can relax in comfy seating area and have free access to WiFi.

Some of the activities are included in the price of the holiday and others will be an additional charge e.g. ceramic painting, wood "transfer". Open daily from 9:30am to 5pm
