The Cotswold Sculpture Park is home to “Elemental”, a collection of exciting sculptures displayed outdoors.
The park is run by Dave Hartland (a sculptor himself) and his wife Serena Stevens (who also runs the Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue Centre in nearby Leigh).
The Cotswold Sculpture Park sits on a ten-acre site very affectionately known by Dave and Serena simply as ‘The Land’. When they bought the land in 1997, its was a wild thistle field.
Though the thistle field had its own beauty The Land has now been transformed into a mixed deciduous and conifer woodland with ponds, gardens and glades. Joining these diverse spaces are meandering paths that take you on a journey around the park providing an international centre for contemporary art.
In 2017, Dave and Serena began hosting weddings and parties on The Land, with great success. People can stay over in any of the shepherd huts dotted around, and the purpose-built building with kitchen and bar, plus fire pits and seating outside makes it the perfect venue. Get in touch to find out more about hiring our unique party venue.
A CHANGING LANDSCAPE
The Land itself is an ongoing project which will continue changing, producing a biodiversity of natural ecosystems, providing Artists both established and emerging, with a wonderful and diverse enviroment to exhibit their work. In 2016 we are planning a wildflower garden to embrace the area around the glade providing a pallete of colour and flowing texture.
Why not come and enjoy The Land and all it has to offer. See the information for visitors page for details on how and when to get to us.
