We will guide you through our hands-on courses which are dedicated to learning every stage of the artisan baking process, the easy way.

A fun and interesting day of baking.
May 2021 • Friends
We really enjoyed the Artisan Bread Making course. Alan was so knowledgable and we learned so much from the day.

The bread was delicious - of course, and early attempts to recreate at home have been successful so far.

Amazing experience - so much knowledge learnt whilst having so much fun!
May 2021
Our 4th visit to learn about bread making with Alan & Carol, this time learning about gluten free baking. As always, we were treated like old friends and both Alan & Carol were generous with their time and making us feel at home in their beautiful home. We came home laden with goodies to freeze and enjoy later, so value for money is never a concern!!

The house was tip-top in terms of cleanliness and all covid regulations were in place, so we felt very safe. We were able to enjoy the pizzas we made for our lunch in Carol's gorgeous garden in the sunshine. We have already booked again for our 5th course, leaning about pasta making.

Brilliant bread making course
Apr 2021 • Couples
We had a wonderful experience with Alan and Carol on the Classic Artisan Bread course. Alan is extremely knowledgeable and Carol really looks after you, both making you feel welcome and relaxed. The bread tastes fantastic and they make it completely accessible for all experience levels.

The lunch (which you make yourself!) was delicious, we were lucky enough with the weather to sit in the peaceful and very picturesque garden to enjoy it.

I genuinely can’t think of any negative points after today’s course. I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has even the smallest inkling in learning about bread making (or eating it!) :)

Birthday treat
May 2021
My lovely sister organised this brilliant present, we had a lovely morning learning so many things about bread making, I’m still amazed we produced so much in such a short time, considering my last disaster took me 3 days just to make hot cross buns! With such a patient and knowledgeable teacher ‘Alan’, we learnt making bread really doesn’t have to be a chore or terrifying! In 4 hours we had made soda bread, rolls, french sticks, pizza, brioche and fancy braided baguettes, along with lunch and refreshments Alan and his lovely wife ‘Carol’ made us feel extremely welcome, all Covid precautions were in place to.
We both left feeling very proud of our achievements and are still talking about it, we received a detailed email with all the recipes we made so we can continue baking, today in fact I purchased some proper scales and added to my sourdough starter in preparation for my first solo bread bake next weekend, cannot wait! Thank you both, we had a brilliant time. Sam and Charlie.

Brilliant sourdough morning
May 2021 • Friends
My daughter and I spent a second morning ( previously visiting for a gluten free bread course) with Alan and Carol on a beginners sourdough session.
Alan had gone out of his way to pre-prepare some spelt bread for comparison with 100% wheat specially for us! The course was relaxed, fun but huge amounts of information are imparted in a very digestible form with lots of post course support if you need it, not to mention the notes and recipes that follow by email.
Carol ensures it all runs smoothly and organises all the extras for us to prepare for our sourdough pizza lunch which we enjoyed in their lovely conservatory.
This was all completed in a COVID safe way which was very much geared to making it comfortable for us.
I can thoroughly recommend this excellent course and perhaps at some stage after a bit of practice we might be back!!

All round amazing experience
Dec 2020 • Family
The whole experience was really great. Alan and Carol were so welcoming, with a lovely set up. Alan was so patient and had a great teaching style, letting you get stuck in and giving you tips along the way. The recipes and techniques are easy to follow and Alan explains as much or as little as you need. I have never successfully made bread before but we came away with lots of beautiful bread and am excited for the new recipes every month. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get started in breadmaking or to try out something different.

Brilliant day baking bread
Oct 2020 • Couples
Had a great day making different types of bread and rolls. Very relaxed but we learnt a lot. Alan and Carol are great hosts. Me and my husband had such a good time and making our own pizza for lunch was an added bonus.
We have already booked to return and do the Indian breads course next month!

Highly recommended Sourdough course
Oct 2020 • Couples
A really great course! Alan is a very good guide for all things Sourdough related and Carol is a fab host! We had a great time and learnt so much. The bread tastes amazing and we're no longer scared to try and make some at home! We would really recommend this course.

A perfect birthday present
Oct 2020
I had bought the Artisan bread making course as a birthday present for my mother-in-law. She and I attended the course on Friday, and we had a wonderful time learning about baking bread with Alan. Not only did we have great fun, picking up loads of useful tips and advice, but we came away with bags full of baked goodies which we are all enjoying eating this weekend. Both Alan and Carol made us very welcome and comfortable at their B&B, and we've both come away filled with enthusiasm and our very own "pet" sourdough starters, keen to try it on our own.....
