I cannot express how much my husband and I enjoyed being at Gartmore your staff could not have made us feel more welcome and I loved being taught by Ewa who is a remarkable tutor. Ewa has a wealth of experience and is most generous with her skills/experience. The red piece of Nuno Felt I made was transformed into a shawl/cowl and the large grey/white/black and red piece I turned into a reversible top/tunic. I will certainly be coming back to Gartmore either in May or Sept next year to attend another 5 day workshop.

A thoroughly great experience. Never thought at my age that anyone could teach me how to crochet, however Samira succeeded where all others failed. Will be back in 2019!

This week at Gartmore has been very enjoyable. We were made to feel welcome by the reception staff. The bedroom was very comfortable – good bed and pillows and was serviced daily. The food was generous and very good and the staff who looked after us were friendly and helpful. Many thanks for a good holiday.

Thank you for everything – it was like paradise. Sometimes the food portions were too big! I don’t want to leave! I’ll be back for more painting courses. Great painting tutor. Fantastic company and location. Well done for all the restoration/decorating work in the bedrooms. Very comfortable, thank you! Exceptionally well looked after – thanks.
