"We are a group of friends who have known each other for over 30 years who got together for a belated joint 60th birthday celebration and combined it with learning a new skill of rush basket making. The tutor was fantastic and very patient with us all, and we all came a away with a finished bread basket or a mat and had a sense of achievement. It has wetted our appetite to learn more and am sure we will be back to try our hand at different crafting techniques in the not too distant future.

The accommodation suited our needs perfectly and all staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you and your staff once again for an amazing weekend."
