Visitors to holiday cottages in Dartmouth
can look forward to taking more woodland walks over the next five years and beyond, thanks to a new woodland conservation plan from South Hams District Council.
The council has voted to start a new five-year management plan for woodland it is responsible for at Dartmouth Castle Estate.
Higher Bowden Holiday Cottages has announced its new “Art Loft” for 2014.The Art Loft will provide children of all ages staying in the award-winning cottages with a fun place to create unique art and craft as a reminder of their holiday. The facility is a unique blend of traditional art and craft combined with the latest technology using smart phones/tablets to “print” to wood as well as 3D image capture – a first for the holiday cottage industry in the UK.
New Art Loft for 2014
Some of the activities available in the new art loft include, creating wall murals, painting on beach stones, sketching, jewellery-making, ceramic painting, 3D image capture and a unique nature-art trail.
The Art Loft will be open all day for simple activities (such as crayoning – line drawings provided by Pennywell Farm a well-known local attraction ) but there will be dedicated times throughout the week when expert help will be provided for activities such as ceramic painting and using tablet computers to “paint” or capture a picture and transfer to wood. 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.
