Seymour Road Studios

POT!   PRINT!   PAINT!   DRAW!  ( … and sleep tight too!)

We know what you’ve been thinking – “if only there was a B&B that’s also an art Studio”! No? oh well, you know though that this is a great idea!

Seymour Road Studios is just that – a bed and breakfast and art studios in the  Lady Bay area of West Bridgford.  Artistic heaven!



Bring out your creative side and enjoy learning new art skills at Fran and Rod’s own garden studios. Rod and Fran, both experienced artists and teachers, offer a programme of weekly day-time and evening classes as well as one-day Saturday workshops which extend throughout most of the the academic year and into the Summer too.

Not an artistic bone in your body?  It’s a cry we‘ve heard often before and we’re delighted to help you to put that fear to rest.  Working on the basis that enjoyment is the best route to learning, we guide you through basic techniques building your confidence and enabling  you to develop your own ideas as you progress.

Specialising in Painting, Drawing, Pottery and Print-making, we also provide tailor-made group and one-to-one tuition designed and timed just for you, your group or your special event.



Rod and Fran offer bed and breakfast guests a warm welcome to their beautiful home in Lady Bay, West Bridgford.

With three beautifully presented bedrooms (2 double en suite, 1 single with adjoining private bathroom), each with tv, wifi, hairdryer as well as desk, wardrobe and drawerspace for your stay, prices are from £35 per night (single) and £55 per night (double).

As well as all the usual creature comforts, you will find yourself surrounded by a wonderful range of original art and pottery and if the weather is warm enough you may like to take breakfast in the delightful garden.

The standard price includes a simple but delicious breakfast of artisan-baked bread from West Bridgford’s No 8 deli, home-mixed muesli, fresh fruit, a choice of a range of home-made jams and jellies, fruit juice, tea or fair-trade coffee.  An ample cooked breakfast of locally sourced finest butchers’ sausage, dry-cured bacon, free-range eggs and all the trimmings may be available (£6 – please be sure to order in advance – Fran and Rod are reluctant to lower standards, so you won’t find them doing a late-night supermarket dash to get inferior supplies in !)

  1. [...] Much closer to home, there are a couple of interesting case studies – Signature Steakhouse in West Bridgford, Nottingham, boasts a boutique alongside the dining area (filet mignon with a blouse and shoes to go, madam?) and in the suburb of Lady Bay there’s a bed and breakfast combined with an art studio.  [...]
