After ringing to ask if they had food suitable for coeliacs we sat for ages with the waitress telling every other table I'll be with you in a minute. A different one eventually got to us, what gluten free food do you do, we asked, I don't know, we have bread, what can I have in it? Whatever we got!... More

Staff are always engaging and helpful. Exhibitions are always good and well hung. Artists in residence always interesting and can be very helpful to other visiting artists. There is a great educational programme, and active support for art clubs, one run by the organisation. The director is noticeably often around and approachable to both staff and visiting public and he... More

Found down a quiet lane this is a nice place to visit, relax and take in the scenery. It's sculptures, made from naturally sourced materials are nice to see, and some are quite astonishing to view. Refreshments are on sale but I felt were a bit pricey. Would recommend a visit especially in nice weather as a lot of this... More

Interesting 'art-based' country house that has various exhibitions throughout the year. Also a venue for art and craft classes and workshops. Very friendly staff and a lovely tea room that also does light lunches. When we visited, there was a Tunnicliffe exhibition that transported me back to my childhood!

I booked my children for a "painting party" and we were able to walk around the museum after. The craft was excellent. Just enough time to cover quite a few things and not too low level that my 13 year old could moan about it being babyish but the 8 year old could manage. The garden is small but packed... More

Perfect place for a leisurely lunch and a stroll around the grounds to admire the sculptures. If you have children there is lots to keep them occupied with the artists in residence being available to demonstrate their crafts.

My partner was attending a Tunnicliffe AGM and I had gone along for the ride. So pleased I did. Nature in Art is a gem tucked away in the little village of Tigworth in Gloucestershire. It houses an eclectic mix of artwork with nature at its core. There were stunning wildlife pictures and dynamic sculptures. The cafe there is great.... More
