Charity Farm is a small estate of units occupied by other trades and skills.

It is in a quiet & peaceful rural setting interrupted by the occasionally noises from the other businesses or from the resident geese and the sounds of nature.

Getting to The Studio

No public transport serves Chattisham or the estate. 

The estate is accessed via a single entrance from The Street, Chattisham.

So please approach with care and caution.

The Barn is accessed by entering the estate, then turn right after a few yards immediately after a small unit on the right (look for the "Body Mind as One →" sign on the fence).

Follow the single track lane for a short distance to the Car Park.

Car Parking
