Rural and Craft Courses:

Our Rural Craft Courses offer a unique opportunity to learn a range of crafts and skills in a friendly, relaxed environment.  Courses are held in small groups, making use of our indoor and outdoor training areas, in and around our converted poultry barn. 

Courses include a country wine morning and traditional mead making afternoon.  An introduction to greenwood working day, w
ood turning on a pole lathe and making a sweet chestnut hurdle.  Future rural and craft courses will be added here as they become active.

 
     

 

     

 

Training Course Feedback:

View many satisfied customers' feedback on our trustpilot reviews page.

Here is just a sample:

I recently went on the Introduction to Chicken Keeping Course which Jason kindly combined with the handling course. Although it's a two hour trip from London, the course is excellent. The owners are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and fun. For anyone thinking about getting some chickens, the course is a must. To also see how beautifully kept everything is and see the equipment needed at close quarters rather than on a web-site is great. The course is exceptional value. Thanks again, Adrienne Eastwood.

 
     

 

     

 

Importance Of Traditional Crafts:

Learning a new skill or craft is fun, fulfilling and keeps the tradition of passing knowledge from teacher to student alive. It is becoming increasingly important to maintain cultural techniques so their methodology is kept alive.
