|Broomhill lies in one of the most glorious valleys
in North Devon surrounded by hundreds of acres of beautiful woodland
and bound by its own stream. Rinus & Aniet Van de Sande moved
to Bromhill in 1997 from Holland and created the Bromhill Art Hotel
and Sculpture Garden.
The once beautiful gardens, neglected for decades, were developed
over the past 5 years into a sculpture park with national recognition.
300 sculptures by 60 sculptors are sited in 10 acres. A wonderful
balance is found between art and nature and the winding paths will
take you to sculptures in woodland gardens and the trout lake.
The woodland gardens provide all year round interest and are particularly
beautiful in the spring with a succession of spring flowers including
snowdrops,daffodils, primroses, bluebells and azaleas. Two magnificent
magnolia grandiflora are a feature of the terrace producing huge scented
More recent planting provides summer and autumn colour and enchances
the wildlife habitat. The garden is home to numerous birds and insects.
Nearer the house we are working towards more formal gardens with contempoary
sculpture on the lawn. Eight international exhibitions areon display
in the gallery each year.
The award winning Broomhill kitchen is based around Mediterranean
cuisine using fresh produce from six neighbouring farms.
From Barnstaple: follow signs for Lynton (NOT Ilfracombe at this stage)
and the North Devon District Hospital. Up the 40mph speed limit hill
to the Hospital traffic lights. Straight over these lights and less
than 1km further on there is a left turn signposted to Ilfracombe
(the road you are on carries on to Lynton). Take the left turn, down
the hill then up the hill into trees. Very soon you will see a signpost
left into Broomhill Art Hotel and Sculpture Gardens.
