A chance to relax, unwind, create and share in like-minded company and create a lasting memory, plus take home a few goodies!  

We aim to leave you feeling indulged, inspired and joyous, with some life-enriching new skills and some shared lasting memories – ones you can’t buy in a shop…

Join your fellow guests, Kate and Nyree around the table for a delicious lunchtime feast, packed with fresh spring flavours. Enjoy a vegetarian menu of sharing plates and salads inspired by the season as well as a selection of beautiful sweet treats to savour in between your two creative workshops. Each dish will be lovingly prepared by Ellie, who trained at Le Cordon Bleu, and served around a beautifully styled table where you will have the time to sit, chat and sip on a glass of fizz while you feast.


Find out more about Ellie – 


“I adored this workshop! A few hours’ in a gorgeous setting, with lovely people, being creative and learning something new, that wasn’t connected to my business or my kids, yet at the same time felt productive and fun… could you ask for more? I left Nyree, Kate and Ellie’s Creative Workshop feeling more relaxed, rejuvenated and inspired than if I’d spent a whole day at a spa. I can’t wait for the next one!”  Charlotte Colliver 

"The proof of my endeavours was people not believing I'd made them and in one day!! Fabulous flowers, cakes covered in Christmas deliciousness, and tags and wrapping paper to impress on Christmas morning. A few hours well spent in a beautiful barn with like-minded people with the creative genius and passion of Kate, Nyree and Ellie, looking forward to doing it all again! "

Liz Parrington

“The activities we did worked really well in the time as everyone went away with something and a feeling of achievement. I loved everything we did and the creations I took home :)  I was a bit apprehensive about attending on my own as I knew no one there and hadn't done any of the activities before, however the leaders and other learners were all so lovely that I had no worries at all. Everyone made me feel really at ease and keen to do more similar things in future. I've already ordered some materials to make more gift tags at home!
