I recently attended the one day cookery course. It was a great experience from start to finish. All the staff are both friendly and incredibly passionate which doesn't fail to inspire. The day is well organised and nice treats are brought out throughout the day between tasting of your own culinary creations. The care and attention to every detail means... More

Attended the 2 day course with my sister. There were about 18 people on the course which at first I thought seemed a lot but actually it worked really well. The tutor, Matt (if tutor is the right word), was knowledgeable, but the course was not too techie (if you are a really keen cook I suspect you would be... More

The whole evening was great starting with the tractor ride from the car park to River Cottage. From that point on, it was just food, food and mote food. EWe started off in a cosy yurt with... More

My sister and I attended dinner with Hugh - a fabulous experience and wonderful to hear him speak so passionately about sustainable living. Food delicious and we are looking forward to coming back for a foraging course next year!

We had sunday lunch as a couple after being given a voucher. The view from the parking area is stunning and then you go down to the site on a tractor and trailer. We did feel we were waiting around a long time for the meal, 2hrs after we were told to arrive. There was lots of it though and... More

This is such a fun experience from beginning to end. You get picked up in the tractor to take us down to a huge Yerte where we had an apple brandy and a couple of canapes while being given a brief talk about RC. We were then given the opportunity to have a look round the property and chat with... More

You meet at the top of the farm and are driven by tractor and trailer over a bumpy path to the venue. We had 2 canopes in a Yerte and 2 further canopes prior to the meal.- in the restaurant. The meal is then explained to the guests by the chef . All the ingredients are sourced that day locally.... More

I attended a course here and although it wasn't quite what I expected, I did learn some new skills and it gave me the confidence to try preparing food I would not have otherwise tried. the chef was great and we were regaled with an endless stream of treats from the kitchen to sustain us throughout the day. the enthusiasm...

The farm house setting is breathtakingly beautiful (with the sun having done her bit). Our host and master baker Aiden was (is) passionate and very knowledgeable. He made baking interesting, gave us confidence in what we were doing and brought fun to the day. Not to forget the other staff who all looked after us superbly. I learnt so much... More

The family chose this cheese making course for my Christmas present. It was a wonderful experience, from the moment we were greeted in the car park to the moment we left the staff were friendly and welcoming. The venue is beautiful, the kitchen perfectly equipped. The course was a little more technical than I anticipated, but underlined the scientific principles... More
