This was a present from our son. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day. It exceeded all expectations. The staff were lovely, the food was amazing, location was stunning. It's well worth a visit. We shall be going again and taking the rest of our family.

Amusing, exhausting, educational and worth every penny. I learned so much, cooked & ate til I could no more. Bring comfy shoes, sense of humour and lots of questions

We went for the alfresco lunch and it was lovely. The food was very tasty and it was great to look around the property.

I was given the River Cottage Bread making day as part of my birthday present, this has to be one of the most fulfilling days that I have had. Aidan, our Artisan bread making expert was a delight to work with, his enthusiasm for the subject was infectious and made learning so much easier. River Cottage is a beautiful place,... More

What a great day, tractor down to the farm, canapés and time to explore before a wonderful Sunday roast.

I got the 1 day cookery course for a Xmas present and was really looking forward to it. I cook a lot, but seldom bake, and this was a chance to expand my knowledge. Typical, first wet day in Devon for a few months but that did not dampen the event. Covered trailer behind the tractor going down and a... More

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
