Venue For Hire

A tranquil, stylish and unique spot

Perfect to escape the stresses of everyday life, Clayhill Arts is situated 4 miles outside of the historic market town of Bridgwater, in the heart of a 140-acre arable farm in Somerset.

Converted from a series of old farm buildings, Clayhill Arts is a multipurpose facility offering accommodation, on-site catering, meeting and presentation spaces for our Residential Course Programme as well as workshop facilities.

With multiple break-out spaces, both inside and outside the building, Clayhill is an ideal facility for groups wanting an alternative space for an away day or to host a product launch.

Bespoke Wedding Receptions

With 8 acres of gardens, lakes and English countryside to explore as well as a cinema barn, converted granary with banqueting table, artist workshops and conference facilities we can ensure your event is tailored to your need.

Our previous events have included bespoke wedding receptions, private celebratory parties, product launches, artist talks, corporate retreats and self-directed artist retreats.


With 8 en-suite bedrooms to choose from, we can sleep up to 16 people. Arranged as a mixture of twins and doubles, each room has a private entrance, its own tea and coffee making facilities and an outdoor seating area. Our 4 double rooms have been converted from a series of old cattle sheds and retain characterful features such as exposed wooden roof timbers and stone walls. Our 4 twin rooms have been converted from an old milking parlour. They are slightly more modern in style, having been finished with illustrative wallpapers.

Depending on your requirements, we can host an intimate retreat for 8 or a sharing retreat for 12 - 16 people.

We host a fully accessible bedroom with an en-suite wet room. Additionally, all communal areas are wheelchair accessible. A mobility lift has been installed, as well as mobility apparatus in the toilets.

Accommodation is also available to book via Airbnb!
