Packages & Courses

So what can you make? The answer to that lies in the skill you discover in yourself – we generally suggest making a hook, a toasting fork, a keepsake or, as a team, a decorative sword, but if you turn out to be really good you could try a piece for the home.

The Location

From the summit of Garway Hill (less than two miles away) it is possible to see seven counties on a clear day, with uninterrupted views on all sides of fields, farms and distant hills.  We consider ourselves very fortunate to be set in the very heart of the wonderful west Herefordshire countryside and there are plenty of walks you can enjoy from gentle strolls to more demanding hikes.
