The Stables

Originally built to house Hylands Estate horses, The Stables has now been restored as a vibrant space for the Hylands Artist Studios. The Stables, at the heart of the Estate, also offers an Artist Shop and an Information Point, which is the perfect place to enjoy with friends and family. Meet our resident artists and designers as they create unique bespoke pieces in their studios and perhaps discover a classic book as you browse in the second-hand book shop.

The Stables is also home to The Deli, which opened in April 2023. Find out more on their dedicated page.

The Artist Studios

The Artist Studios at Hylands Estate are home to an exciting collection of skilled artists, designers and makers who, not only create their own original work for purchase, but also run demonstrations, workshops and exhibitions.

Book Shop

The second-hand bookshop is managed entirely by volunteers of the Friends of Hylands House. The Friends Bookshop first opened its doors in March 2008 and has now become an established and valued visitor attraction. The Bookshop carries a good stock of second-hand books covering many subjects and includes a large selection of collector’s books.  The Friends rely on donations of all types of books which may be delivered and left at the Bookshop.
