This is the second time we have been to River Cottage and we have thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. I wanted the 19th July as my sister was coming from London and I thought this would be a nice treat for her. Unfortunately there was only one ticket left. I e mailed River Cottage and they couldn't have been more helpful... More

My girlfriend bought me the one day bread-making course at River Cottage and it was very inspiring. I enrolled on the course with a slight interest in baking and came away a fully-fledged home baker, obsessed with my starter and intent on creating great bread. The two tutors (Aidan Chapman and Andrew Tyrell) were very knowledgable and inspirational and the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the River Cottage Experience, bought as a xmas present for my wife. We actually also attended for the al fresco lunch the day prior as we'd received an email with last minute bargains and opted to have the lunch at half price. Al fresco lunch - thoroughly relaxed 3 hour event. Time to saunter around the grounds, had... More

Just had a lovely weekend in Somerset/Dorset/Devon which included a day at the River Cottage Food Festival which was brilliant. Lovely venue, interesting crafts and tried some lovely food - oh, and we met Hugh F-W, one of our foodie heroes (I was embarrassingly star-struck!!!). It felt quite select; they didn't pack too many people in therefore you could walk... More

Just returned from a one day course on building a wood fired oven brilliant. The set up and staff are first class running this course very smoothly with plenty of hands on involvement. The students made their own pizzas for lunch then bread and focaccia to take home. In between this we were shown how to make an outdoor wood... More

Just been to River Cottage. A Christmas present for my girlfriend. In summary an absolutely fabulous experience. Fantastic food and the ambivalence was brilliant. Had the opportunity to sit with some very interesting people and share life experiences over great food. The tractor ride too and from the Cottage was also a good experience. The drinks and canapes before dinner... More

We went for the one day cookery course, and loved every minute. All the staff were friendly, knowledgable, professional and welcoming......and not least passionate! We were shocked at how much we actually managed to do in one day, and that all students were totally hands on for the whole day. Each person had their own work station and made all... More

I believe myself to be one of maybe 18 U.S. citizens who know about River Cottage, and I was thrilled to get to be at H.Q. on Thanksgiving this year taking the one day cooking course. Excellent, excellent is all I can say. I am an accomplished cook, but I learned lots including, yes, that fresh liver prepared with North... More

We visited here during a visit to Devon in September and we were surprised how different it looks to the tv series. The house and kitchen garden itself is smaller than we thought, however they have rebuilt the cookery school which is great and the food and stalls were marvellous! Huge was there, along with Pam the Jam; who I... More

We decided to go to river cottage for a one day cookery course after some friends of ours had a day here last year. The day is not cheap but we thought it was great value for money. There were about 20 people on our course but there was plenty of room for us all. Our chef for the day... More
