Course prices include a two-course home-cooked farmhouse lunch each day with lovely sticky puds, course notes and there is an opportunity to take a selection of free information leaflets and publications relevant to your course.

Volunteers will get lots of soup, salad, cold meat, bread, cheeses, fruit and cake etc, but we can't cook and run Volunteer Days!

Gifts

If you are giving your course as a gift to someone else, you can either choose a date for them or choose "No Specific Date" if you would like the recipient to choose their own date.

Free Gift Certificates are available for courses- simply tick the box when you book and we will send you one at no extra cost.

We also have a small shop on-site where we sell the books recommended on the course and some of our own produce, including honey from our bees, eggs, beeswax candles and our own wool.

Details of local accommodation available can be found on our Links page

 

Private courses for 1-10 people can be booked by arrangement on alternative dates.

Further dates will become available if there is demand.

Please ask to be put on our waiting list.
