In my experience people want to have time to create, so we will be inside in a studio space, at Yarner Wood; lots of room. There is also outside space, and you can go straight in to the lovely Yarner Woods should you wish.

Woodlands Room, Yarner Wood. TQ13 9LJ.
When you turn in to Yarner Wood, (signed East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve) drive up the track and past the white cottages on the right (about a mile). There is a CP in front of you, but instead turn left over cattle grid and keep driving about 1/4 mile until you reach the Woodlanders Room CP. The studio space is right there.
