SALT AND LAND
Lympstone Manor is decorated with artwork by talented local artist Emma Solley (Salt + Land).
Nature is a recurring theme for Emma as an artist. From huge dramatic skies, to tranquil oceans, scenes of big surf and rugged coastline, majestic expanses of Dartmoor, whatever the subject, Emma is constantly seeking a sense of peace, beauty and contemplation in her use of composition and colour.
BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY AND WOODLAND ANIMALS
The wildly talented Rachael Toll has created a series of watercolours of the birds and woodland creatures of the Exe estuary, all of which have given both the names as well as the design inspiration for our 21 guestrooms and suites and 6 Shepherd Huts.
Each room has been inspired by its namesake, with the interior design reflecting the plumage and colours of the bird or woodland creature.
Dotted around our intimately beautiful estate are 53 sculptures created by more than 20 sculptors from around the country. Each stand proud and resolute, happily positioned amongst the
ir surroundings to provide guests with a unique experience to appreciate not just the natural beauty of our grounds, but also of these strikingly poignant and beautiful constructions.
The variety of works on display throughout our Sculpture Park is truly remarkable, from abstract to figurative and conceptual genres, covering a range of different subjects’ techniques, styles, materials, methods of creation, scale and underlying philosophy. This is a carefully curated collection, with the placement of each work in the natural setting of our estate precisely considered by the artist, curator and Michael himself. The overall effect is hugely impressive, taking the concept of environmental art to another level.
