With miles of country lanes, wildflower meadows, magnificent valleys and archaeological sites, we are in the perfect location to explore the Wye Valley and Royal Forest of Dean. This short break provides the sign that summer days are on their way, as we wander beneath the trees with an abundance of stunning blue trumpet-like flowers sweeping across the woodland floor.

The bluebell woods in the Forest Of Dean are one of the best kept secrets in the UK’s landscape. Come and experience a break away at our beautiful country house in the spring, and join your hosts for a time of exploring the beautiful woodlands and gardens of the Wye Valley and Royal Forest of Dean. This break will include walks through the Soudley bluebell woods and a visit to Lydney Park gardens, famous for its rhododendrons and home to Viscount Bledisloe. Transport is laid on for each visit, with stops at viewing points and the services of a knowledgeable local guide: bring your camera for some great shots of babbling brooks, woodlands, and wildlife! There will be opportunities for some gentle walks from the hotel too, or time to explore independently at your leisure.

When you get back, enjoy the roaring log fire in Lindors lounge, or sit out on the veranda to take in the views of the garden lake. You could spend some time in the Bible Garden, or follow the paths around Lindors’ beautiful grounds. Evenings will include social entertainment and reflective prayers, in the best tradition of Christian Guild. Take a swim, or enjoy some putting or croquet on the lawn. Should you want to get out and about independently, we can always point you in the direction of local attractions that include Puzzlewood (used as a filmset for Star Wars, Merlin, and the Harry Potter films), Symonds Yat, or the spectacular Tintern Abbey. Whatever your interests and age, the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley makes a great holiday destination, whatever the weather.

Come and share some refreshing fellowship in the beautiful gardens of Lindors Country House hotel!

A watercolour painting activity holiday gives you the opportunity to improve your skills in relaxed company and in our comfortable Country House surroundings.

Places are limited on this break to allow our tutor to give you personalised suggestions based upon your level of experience. Please note: there may be some outdoor sessions, so please pack suitable clothing.

Meet one of our guides....

Anne Barnham

Anne was born in Carlisle and since then has moved around the country and abroad. She has a deep love of outdoor life so finally settled in Lincolnshire where “the great skies and distances are made for fresh and clear watercolour”. 

Anne started painting about 4 years ago; landscapes with water appeal mostly but likes to have a building or structure of some kind to offset the gentleness of nature. Anne is an experienced teacher as she regularly teaches on cruise liners and will be guiding and assisting you in creating your own masterpiece.

The Holiday

Anne Barnham comes from Lincolnshire where she demonstrates and teaches local art groups, in her studio and out at sea with P&O cruises! Anne writes:

“This week will be an enjoyable time for new and established painters alike. My aim is to help everyone to get the best out of painting outdoors, a new idea for some, and to show some ‘building block’ techniques that will help develop your own style. John and I will have been down to do a ‘recce’ to choose some great places to paint.

On Sunday we will meet at 4pm to have tea and cake, and get to know one another. After dinner we will get together in our painting room and talk about what will happen in the week ahead, what each of you wants to gain from the week and any other points. I shall do a short demonstration and answer any queries about the week ahead.

The days will begin after breakfast with approximately an hour in our painting room in the hotel to discuss any main points from the day’s venue. We will then go to our chosen place in as few cars as we can and paint for most of the day. All the places that John and I have chosen will have parking, good views to paint, refreshments and toilets!

If the weather is not good, we are able to paint in the hotel all day: I shall bring lots of reference photos that we can work from. The hotel is providing a large room for our use with tables and chairs and also tea/coffee and biscuits, morning and afternoon, should we be indoors.

In the evenings there is some entertainment in the hotel which we are welcome to enjoy, or you would be free to do your own thing. If anyone would like to have a break and explore during the day on their own, that is fine: I want the week to be fun and relaxed.

I will be painting in watercolour but please bring your usual painting equipment in whichever medium you use. After all, the principles are all the same! Don’t forget things like hats, camera, stool/chair, sun cream etc.

I will be bringing various items for sale, paper, paints, brushes and all sorts of other bits and pieces in case you need any ‘top-ups’!

Please get in touch if you want to clarify anything, 01526 320626 or e-mail: annebarnham@hotmail.co.uk

The staff at Lindors look forward to welcoming Anne, John and all those who want to enjoy a holiday whilst improving their painting skills!

Abbot Hall Hotel in Partnership with Ramblers Worldwide Holidays

To book this 5 night holiday please contact Ramblers Worldwide Holidays on 01707 331133 or visit the Ramblers Worldwide Holidays

Peninsulas, Coast, Lakes and Fells

The glittering expanse of Morecombe Bay is spread out in front of you as you pause for rest on a clifftop path fringed with sea thrift. This is Southern Lakeland rambling at its best.

Explore the dramatic scenery and shores of the Cumbrian coast, together with the rolling wooded fells, tranquil tarns and lakeshores of the south western Lake District. Before the coming of the railways, this was the gateway to The Lakes with the route being a guided walk across the sands of Morecambe Bay from Lancaster to Grange-over-Sands on the inner of the Furness Peninsulas. We walk up to the limestone summit of Hampsfell for magnificent views over Morecambe Bay and the southern Fells towards Keswick. There’s an enjoyable scenic train journey across the Kent Channel estuary to Arnside to explore the lovely coastal area around Silverdale as well as climbing ‘The Knott’.

Inland we walk the south-eastern Fells around Windermere and Coniston Water with panoramic views over the lakes from the surrounding hills or from the closer viewpoint of a motor launch.

We’re based to the south of the Lake District National Park boundary and right on the Morecambe Bay coast at Kents Bank, just along the coast and one stop on the railway line from the genteel but faded Victorian resort of Grange-over-Sands. The Cumbrian Coastal Way runs past the end of the hotel’s gardens.

Please note: Single rooms without supplements are subject to availability.
