The houses have extensive gardens, wonderful countryside views and good local walks.

Taunton, with all the usual amenities, is only a few minutes drive away and there is also a frequent bus service.


Accommodation is in shared bedrooms (two or three sharing).

There is a student sitting room with TV and games facilities and a relaxed and homely atmosphere.

Free Time

In your free time you may choose to occupy yourself from a range of activities such as pleasant countryside walks, relaxing in the hot tub (don't forget your swimsuit), indoor or garden games, visiting and exploring the local towns - or even a quiet spot of paperwork or revision if exams are looming.

Courses usually include a social evening with the opportunity to choose and cook themed party food.

We hope you will be able to join us for the week.

Thanks very much for a fantastic week and rewarding week! I've gone from not having the slightest clue as to what cooking is really about to having confidence in the kitchen and the ability to cook for the wolefamily. I'll definitely be cooking the salmon en crout to show off! Group was really great to be with and the facilities were perfect for what we needed. Cheers. Michael.

Very different to my expectation - definitely exceeded them! Really nice laid back atmosphere and brilliant serting. Cooking was made easy with help always at hand. Everyone approachable and lovely. Thank-you.

Loved the course, was really useful and fun. Can't wait to try what I've learnt at home -
