The Old Kitchen CafeDelamore Arts operates a small cafe throughout the exhibiton in May each year. Alongside tea and coffee we also offer two homemade soups, a selection of made to order filled rolls and cake! (including vegetarian and gluten free options). The cafe is open daily 10.30 to 16.30. You can also view one or two additional paintings and a selection of smaller inexpensive artworks which make lovely gifts. Seats are arranged in the Old Kitchen cafe, and in Marquees on the grass if the weather is nice.

Wheelchair and disabled AccessWe welcome our many disabled visitors during the exhibition and whilst some come alone it is easier if you have a friend or helper with you. Sculpture is arranged throughout the garden which is arranged over a number of terraces. All areas can be reached albeit via a longer route than using the steps. The ground becomes wet quickly and takes a while to dry out, and going can be difficult in places. The terraces are flat and gravel covered but mainly firm and easy to cross and offer views across most of the garden. Access to the house gallery is by a ramp at the front door but you will need to alert the gallery staff to open the door for you. Disabled parking and/or drop off is available next to the main house and there is also a wheelchair accessible lavatory located here. Space is limited here and we are grateful if you are able to drop off here and then use the main carpark to park. We have an additional gallery in the Stable yard and you are welcome to drive and park here also. Access to the cafe is possible but the going is bumpy and over uneven cobbles.

Delamore House and GardensThe present Delamore, the fourth house to be built on the Estate, was commissioned by Admiral Parker and built in 1859. Delamore has remained in the same family since 1688 when it was purchased from the malmains by Sir George Treby of Plympton. It is still a traditional agricultural Dartmoor estate. Two of the principal rooms in the house are used as galleries for hanging paintings. Immense windows provide excellent natural light and visitors have an opportunity to view the paintings at leisure within the atmosphere of this impressive country house.
The gardens provide a superb showcase for the sculpture and in this setting the visitor can view the works of leading artists set against the background of impressive parkland trees and well-tended flowerbeds.
