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.Lorraine & Steve, Felting course, August 2018
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!Linda, Knitting & Crochet course, September 2018
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.Mary, Watercolour Painting Course, August 2018
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.John, Painting Course, June 2018
