I can highly recommend this art school for it's professional teaching, organisation, materials and location. Nellie the owner of Bullclough is a bubbly, warm and accepting host and I can honestly say I felt very welcome. The location is breathtaking and I would challenge anyone not to find inspiration at Bullclough within the Stunning Peak District.
