4362886_1_1East Lyn Manor on Lower East Lyn Farm offers Art Days: opportunities to develop personal skills in sketching and painting, supported by lectures in art. The events are led by writer and artist Sharon Plant, whose aim is to provide a friendly and welcoming setting where guests can pursue their own creative passions, enjoy learning something new, and have a great day out with like-minded people. Aspart of each event, the day includes a lunch of home cooked, locally sourced food. 

East Lyn Manor was acquired as a derelict Grade II Listed buyilding in 2012. The buildings have been repaired, the vegetable garden and courtyard fruit trees planted, the stream and ponds dredged, and new sheep installed. Art Days run from 9.45 to 4pm, and cost £100 per person with a maximum of 10 people per event. Lower East Lyn Farm is a 10 minute drive from Lynton up onto the moor.
