Kestle Barton is an ancient Cornish farmstead situated above the Helford River. Following an award-winning conservation and conversion project, old farm buildings have new uses as holiday cottages, accommodation for artist residencies, and a gallery, opened in 2010.
In the gallery, garden and wildflower meadow beyond Kestle Barton runs an annual programme of free exhibitions and events, open to visitors from early April to late October. The gallery often works with artists based in the south west, or strongly connected to the region, but also presents work by internationally known artists whose work has particular resonance in Cornwall.
Kestle Barton is a partner in Groundwork and has hosted artists, curators, writers and researchers throughout the project. Kestle Barton also hosts the Cornwall Workshop, a week-long residential workshop organised by CAST.
