Nestled perfectly within the Ceredigion countryside, yet only several miles from Wales's west coast, is Sculpture Heaven. After being hugely recommended to me by another one of our great attractions, I set out to investigate further what exactly was on offer here at Sculpture Heaven. What I discovered really did take me by surprise. Terry & Rose Barter are behind all of the works you will find here, and are the founders of this attraction. The works on show here are some of the best sculptures I've ever seen, and for most of us, we wouldn't usually ever meet the people who create such sculptures in museums, art gallery's, or even out and about in cities such as London. Here however, Terry & Rose are both on hand to discuss their works, either on the grounds, in their sculpture shop, or even over a cup of tea in their cute little tearoom. I really love this place, and wether or not you like sculptures, Sculpture Heaven is most certainly worth a visit.
We moved to West Wales in 1995, set up a small sculpture workshop and began turning our 2 acre field into a productive garden . In 2008 we opened our gardens and workshop to the public for the first time as part of the 'Open Studio' initiative and were shocked by the amount of people that ventured to the middle of nowhere, ' where the streets have no name' , to come and visit.
Since then Sculptureheaven has become an increasingly well known and well loved attraction.
A visit to us (including parking) is completely free. A typical visitor comment is 'Thank you, this place is absolutely magical.' ‘Sculptures truly lovely. We will be coming back'.
We have really enjoyed building up Sculptureheaven over the years and meeting all the intrepid visitors who venture out into the wilds to find us.
We hope that you enjoy your visit.
