The Quill Collective - a creative space, cafe and gardens. This is a place of community, inspiration and collaboration, bringing together all forms of creativity. From art, crafts, pottery and an apothecary to food, gardening, yoga, workshops and everything in between.
The Quill Collective is owned by Jo and her husband Taz, who also live on the 40 acre property called ‘South Stoke’ with their two sons. The rear of the property is also home to their award winning ‘South Stoke’ Extra Virgin olive grove.
"The best way to describe the space is a collection of gardens and various areas, all with their own feel that allow people to choose how they want to spend their time and tap into their own creativity. Sometimes that’s talking to friends, running or attending a workshop, writing your book in the library, or reading someone else’s in the garden. Creativity takes many forms but it’s the one area that calms the mind, brings us together as a community and taps into something that can take us away when we need it and bring us together. There is nothing quite like getting lost in a creative pursuit, whether that’s gardening or drawing - the feeling is the same."
You can choose to spend your time in the library or craft area, the conservatory or in one of the private courtyards in The Kitchen Garden. You can walk through the Waterhouse Garden that surrounds a large labyrinth. (Please be aware of the deep water and keep your children with you at all times.) There is also the fenced Gulliver’s Garden for toddlers, and The Swallows and Amazons Garden, a large wooded area for older children.
The whole space, including the gardens, is wheelchair and pram accessible. Quiet and calm dogs are welcome but only in the courtyards of the kitchen garden and on a lead and accompanied at all times.
The Quill Collective offers regular workshops, catering for groups from baby showers to birthdays as well as larger events and the olive grove is available to book as a wedding venue. Please visit their website for more information.
