Nature in Art has many attractions to keep you interested throughout your visit. I would recommend this as the trip through the countryside to get there is very Scenic & relaxing. The Cafe offers excellent value for your money.

Paintings and sculptures, and other forms of art are displayed in about 5 rooms spread over 2 floors. The common theme in "nature", but it is... More

This is a beautiful place, home to some wonderful artefacts and - today - to two 'artists in residence'. I managed the downstairs area on my Mobie scooter, though with difficulty, but felt the tiny lift would not be adequate for two adults and my Mobie. So I was unable to access the exhibition upstairs. The staff were pleasant and... More

Thank you for visiting Nature in Art. We are very sorry that there were elements of your visit that disappionted you. We have shared your comments with all staff. Unfortunately because we are a listed Georgian mansion we have been restricted in the size of lift that can be installed. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. More

We visited in September when the annual exhibition of wildlife photographers awards was being shown. Amazing talent and superb photos on display. The rest of the pictures.ceramics and furniture on display are also well worth seeing inside the lovely Mansion and in the garden. The little cafe serves light lunches too.
