Private Online Cooking Class

Create restaurant quality dishes guided by a top chef without needing to leave the retreat!


We are so excited to be collaborating with Larks Live to bring this world class experience to our guests.

Tim Maddams is a chef, writer, cookery teacher & presenter. Tim led the team at River Cottage Axminster, where he regularly appeared alongside Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on the River Cottage series on Channel 4.  You may also spot Tim on various foodie shows, such as Sunday Brunch.   

It is a really fun 1 hour - learn a new dish; learn to make a fab cocktail and then kick back in your retreat and enjoy your creations!
