How Stean Gorge - Artwork Exhibition
I'm delighted and excited to be having an artwork exhibition at the inspiring location of How Stean Gorge for the entire month of March 2016.
I've got fond memories of How Stean Gorge and our boys playing there when they were little (and bigger). They loved the excitement of the place.
The Gorge is really spectacular (of course) and a few years ago, our boys took part in some rafting and abseiling with their oldest brother, Brandon.
How Stean also offers canoeing, caving, rock climbing, gorge walking, hire wire action along with various packages to suit your needs. You can also camp there and explore the area around and about. Their tag line is 'Experience the thrill of nature' and I think that's spot on!
Here's what How Stean says about their Family Days out...
How Stean Gorge is a spectacular limestone gorge with winding pathways, narrow bridges, underground caves and an active stream still forming mysterious shapes and pools. You can explore these winding paths and caves armed with your hard hat (advisable for those places where you have to duck!) and a torch. The paths are ideal for children to explore as there’s no straight lines and it’s bumpy in places. It is a superb natural feature so small children will need to be supervised as there are shear drops and ledges. How Stean Gorge is completely natural and a Site of Special Scientific Interest so it’s also protected.
The whole setting for How Stean (and the surrounding area) is spectacular and you get a sense of adventure as well as peace and tranquility, if that's also what you're after.
My artwork exhibition will be held in the restaurant. It's a lovely airy space and of course the food is yummy too. The place has a knack for making you feel immediately at home - which it certainly did for us when we pitched up with two toddlers!
The staff are really helpful and there's always lots going on but a quiet corner if you need it just to drink some tea and get lost in your own thoughts.
I hope you manage to take a look and try some of their activities and offerings, whilst having a browse through my artwork exhibition. On display will be primarily original watercolours with signed fine art prints and blank hand-crafted greeting cards.
Lastly, why not make a day of it with family and/or friends - you won't be disappointed. :)
