How to find us

Come into the centre of Greystoke village and take the road under the archway into Greystoke Castle grounds (beware of the road traffic ‘humps’ designed to slow traffic down). Immediately past the small bridge over a little stream, take the right fork over the cattle-grid and come to a crossroads at the top of the hill. Go straight across the crossroads and you will see the buildings associated with the Home Farm. The studio is situated at the front corner up a small flight of wooden steps.
