Artist in residence, Bucks Mills cabin

Each year, we invite artists to use Bucks Mills cabin for a period of time to take advantage of the wonderful light and beautiful scenery.

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event

A rare opportunity to see inside this tiny artists retreat which has been left largely untouched since the 1970's. Last used by renowned artists Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards, the cabin is exactly as they left it over 40 years ago and remains a hidden gem in the pretty coastal village of Bucks Mills. Meet with the current artist in residence, and learn about how they've been inspired by this artistic heritage.
