Reviews about our Studio

"A huge thank you from all of us for letting us come to Penpynfarch.  We had a very productive and creative time, and felt very welcomed.  I look forward to returning at some point."   - Tom Bailey, Mechanimal, Dec 2017.

"We all had an amazing time and can't think of a more beautiful place to have spent that week so thank you for allowing us to come and make an awful racket."  - Patrick Smith, Eskimo Chain, Nov 2017.

"This truly is a magical haven + perfect for our Zen retreat." Zen Association Wales, Feb 2017.

"I have been visiting and working at Penpynfarch for many years. What creativity takes is a delicate thing. It can't be forced, it needs time, space, privacy, and for me, a slowing down. The beautiful walks nearby hold this precious time and energy, something unpressured occurs. I urge anyone who has the opportunity to work in the studio or grounds to take it." - Jo Fong 

"Penpynfarch is one of those rare places where improvisors working intensively can delve deeper into their personal journeys and public faces. The work in this safest of environments has, over the past years been as deep and rich as the landscape that surrounds us. We have danced, laughed, cried, eaten (very well) played sumo on the beach and shouted at the sky." - Adam Benjamin

"Penpynfarch is an invaluable facility...It's a great place to get away to, where you can really focus on what you want to explore and achieve, undistracted by the usual stuff that's going on in the city."  - Guy Dartnell 

"The facilities and idyllic location perfectly supported our creative process. We would thoroughly recommend Penpynfarch and look forward to returning in the future."  - Fecund Theatre 

“Pen Pynfarch is a tender place to immerse oneself in the forest and farm land of Wales. This fecundity nourishes the senses and helps bring alive a naturally resonant community. It is a place quiet enough for creativity to flourish and in which the movements within the body find reflection in the natural world.”
- Caryn McHose, Resources In Movement, New Hampshire, US

“Penpynfarch is set up to develop a deeper understanding and care for the living body, alongside care for the rhythms and needs of land . Set at the head of a steeply wooded valley, at the end of a road, it’s a unique place to work together, a place where a passionate care for the ecology of our lives infuses everything that happens.” - Miranda Tufnell
