Great range of courses

From 1 or 2 day courses – great as presents or to spend time with a friends and family, to week long chairmaking courses – the perfect creative holiday. 

We’ve got something to suit all tastes.

Relax and unwind in our tranquil woodland setting

We have a huge, covered area protecting you from the rain but also allowing you to be part of the tranquil woodland.
