We have mediaeval stocks, a Tudor barn and 5 acres of amazing gardens, a lake and a large orchard.
Have a go on a potters wheel
I specialise in slipware pottery thrown on a potters wheel (of which there are 4). The pots are decorated with the coloured liquid clay (slip) that provides a wonderful fluid palette to create a wide range of decorative styles. The great benefit of this course is that by using slips we are able to make and decorate the pots in the same lesson as the pots are decorated in their raw, unfired state. You therefore don't need to return to decorate the pots at another lesson, unless you want to of course! The one-off lesson is suitable for adult absolute beginners as well as those revisiting skills that may have got rusty. If you have a particular project you want to try out (e.g. flower pot, mug, jug) then we will discuss how you can achieve that in the time available but feel free to let me know beforehand with ideas / pictures. Pottery is a very broad subject and it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start, but if you just want to “have a go at pottery” then we can generally fit in a go at throwing some pots of different styles / forms. The aim will be to have made at least one decorated pot you can either take home (in raw clay state) at the end of the lesson or wait for it to be fired (approx. 3 weeks) for collection or posted at cost. Other things to note Clay can be a messy business! I have aprons and towels but you may want to consider the following: • Clothes - the oldest you have. We’ll be using earthenware clay which is quite unforgiving on clothing. • Nails - best if cut but not a real issue.

Potter's wheel experience
Join our creative, fun and friendly Introduction to the Potter's Wheel Class. We're currently limiting the group to x14 ppl per session. This allows for bags of individual attention and guidance from either Sarah or myself. Please allow 1.5hrs for your visit. On arrival you'll be offered a warm welcome and shown to your potter's wheel. Following a step by step demonstration, you'll be sharing one wheel between two - each potter has two turns to attempt to make a pot. (We encourage participants to swap between goes as it's a great spectator sport and we think you learn loads by watching your potting partner make their pot.) At the end of the session you may...or may not ;) have two pots to show for you efforts. You’ll be offered one of three choices: 1) The ‘green’ option. We’ll recycle all your attempts so your clay can be enjoyed again and again by our lovely customers. 2) Select your favourite pot to take away, air-dry and paint at home. 3) For an additional £20 per pot we’ll fire and glaze your creation. Your masterpiece will need to dry thoroughly before it goes in the kiln. It will be fired twice. This whole process takes about a month, after which we’ll contact you to let you know it’s ready for collection from the Pottery. P+P can be arranged at £5 per item.

You may create as many pots as you wish on the session, using an unlimited supply of clay. As a beginner, your pots tend to be super wobbly and often collapse but it’s all part of the fun and the normal learning curve of a potter!

The Wonderful Wye Valley Walk
Andy's Walk The Wye Valley is a 13km day with 300m of ascent walk and is over some rough, muddy and broken ground but in the main is on good footpaths and tracks and so is doable by most although some feel pretty tired at the end of the day. This is a walk designed by Andy and taking in the highlights and using lesser known paths. King Arthurs Cave, Symmonds Yat, Biblin's Wibbly Wobbly Bridge, an Iron Age hill fort said to be the last camp of King Vortigen... all of these will be explored, and of course the magnificent River Wye too. Andy has been delivering walks at this location for over thirty years and his knowledge of the area, it's industrial heritage and it's natural environments, will be his to share with you as you take in the best the Wye Valley has to offer! Other things to note We may change the route to suit conditions on the day. Dogs are very welcome. Walking boots please. Warm layers and waterproofs essential. You'll need a good packed lunch. We don't cancel due to weather unless it is unsafe to drive. Andy hopes that guest will leave the day with a strong sense of place, it's long history and of course with some lovely new friends :)
