Informal tours of art studio and gallery.
Our mudbrick buildings and colourful cottage gardens are also of much interest to visitors.
More informationSwallows Welcome is the art studio of local water-colour artist Patricia Negus. Browse through the colourful gardens or admire Patricia's Artwork. You are welcome to view Patricias 102 watercolour paintings of more than 500 South-West Wildflowers on permanent exhibition in the mudbrick Chapel of Flowers. The leadlight windows designed by Dawn Klok and porch mosiac by local artist Jenny Hunt are also extremely beautiful.
This chapel of wildflowers & art studio has a very lovely atmosphere & beauty. Patricia is a wonderful soul. Thankyou for creating such a wonderfully welcoming & thoughtful space. A little tricky to find across cattle grates ; but just follow the little signs & you will get there.
Such an amzing place. Built by hand. And so awesome
Beautiful botanical paintings captured in a chapel, built by the artist’s late husband. The chapel is remarkable and has a special purpose which is stated in the epitaph in the photo. I wish I got to meet Pat. I heard wonderful things, but I didn’t ring the bell hard enough.
Blown away that Tim and Patricia built every brick in this place. Lovely chapel and Bush setting. And such beautiful timber benches, clocks and furniture.
Great hidden location. Perfect for a wedding or simply a visit. Hand made bricks with owner on site to tour the chappel and studios.
