Shaptor Studio is the home of Artist Bridget Arnold, the set up is unique, cosy and inviting.
 It is situated in a quieter area called Brimley on the outskirts of Bovey Tracey with the outdoor Swimming Pool and Cricket Pitch, just down the road. Although still being in reasonable walking distance of the Town Centre.
It is adjacent to the Templar Way or Granite Railway bridle path that runs from Haytor to Teignmouth, so is a perfect starting point for walkers, with many other lovely walks to find in the area as well as being the gateway to the Moors.
Bridget runs Silk Painting Workshops so there is also the opportunity to take part in these Workshops when they are running so you can make a whole weekend of it.
There is a secluded back garden with space for eating al fresco and for relaxing outside when the weather is fine.
Currently one double bedroom on offer with tea and coffee available at all times.
Private bathroom for your own personal use.

Bed and Breakfast £30 per person per night
