Closed for Further Refurbishment

From 3rd January until w/c 14 February 2022

Thanks to all of your support, our volunteers and core team’s hard work and dedication, we were able to transform the ground floor in 2021: Reopening the historic Stable Bar, turning the Lounge Bar into a cosy Café and launching our workshops and Honest Shop.

Although the ground floor is now fully functional, we still have a lot of work to do on the upper floors. To make a good start on the work, we will be close for the first 6-weeks of 2022, re-opening in February just in time for Valentine’s day.

NEW Food Focused Residential Volunteer Placement

Arriving Monday March 7 2022 and departing Friday March 18 2022, volunteers will be based for 6 nights at The Farmer's Arms and then for 4 nights at Grizedale Arts HQ Lawson Park.

Deadline for Applications:
Midnight, 21 January 2022

We are excited to open this 2022 call-out for up to 4 residential volunteers.

We're looking for candidates with an interest in food and its politics as well as a general interest in helping with the wide ranging daily activities of a small but ambitious arts organisation. You need not be an artist or have an arts background to apply.
The focus of the first part of the placement will be Food Waste Action Week, a national campaign in which we are taking part for the first time. We're still developing our programme for the week, so this is an exciting opportunity for those interested in the practice and politics of food and cookery, and in how we might better engage the public in addressing the wider impact of food waste.

We cover accommodation & full board (value = £880 p.p) and travel costs of up to £150, which are reimbursed during or immediately after your placement. 

For full informaton about the placements and how to apply, see visit Grizedale Arts website here.


The Farmer’s Arms Garden School 2022

Hosted once a month on the last Saturday of the month (March - October) at Nibthwaite Grange Farm, LA12 8DB

At The Farmer’s Arms everything we do is about creativity and the joy of learning. Gardening is no exception, and we believe anyone can do it!

The Farmer’s Arms Garden School is a comprehensive growing course of nine monthly sessions held at the beautiful Nibthwaite Grange Farm, just a few miles north of the inn.

In fun hands-on sessions, you’ll be guided by local head gardener Karen Guthrie through all the seasonal jobs of growing and caring for fruit, vegetables, shrubs and flowers. We’ll also tackle easy design and landscaping challenges, and learn how to create a nature-friendly balance in even the tiniest of green spaces. Choose a morning or afternoon session to suit your diary, join with a friend or your partner, or come along solo and make new friends to learn alongside.

The full 8-session course costs £320. Concessionary rate is £280.

Sessions run on the last Saturday of the month from March until October 2022. Places are limited to a maximum of 10 people per session and you can choose to attend morning sessions (09.00-13.00) or afternoon sessions (14.00-18.00). 

Pre-booking is essential by Monday 28 February 2022.

urther details, including the full programme and informaton on how to book, is available on Grizedale Arts website here.
