Artisans

Over the years, Yew Tree Barn has provided accommodation and studio space for a range of independent artisans. The barn is a great place in which to create and sell, and over the years we have had a variety of artists and crafts people working from here, many of whom have outgrown their space and gone on to set up their own independent outside studios, shops and galleries.
If you a creative person looking to work from a wonderful building please do ask about spaces available.
