All visitors are requested to provide Covid passports

and evidence of a negative lateral flow test completed in the 24 hours before the start of the course. In making a booking you are confirming acceptance of these conditions.

We reserve the right to refuse anyone who does not comply and failure to do so means you will forfeit your place. 

If you have made a booking and subsequently contract Covid-19 we will happily re-book you onto a later course once you are fully recovered.


Is there something special you'd like to learn about that's not already covered in our  courses? You can book a personal class with Mrs Portly, either a half day or full day. Bring a friend or partner if you want to!

You can combine this with a B&B stay in the en suite Georgian bedroom. For more details please email Linda at

Warm regards,

Linda (aka Mrs Portly).
