DINING at the Hall
Following an enjoyable but hard day's work, one of the pleasures of the course is savouring the delicious, freshly prepared food and a glass of wine in the company of the other participants as you relax in the dining room. This year's caterer comes highly recommended by Rowley Estates and "focuses on ‘home cooked’ Cumbrian meals" using as much locally grown produce as possible. These high quality meals are produced from scratch and the menus are varied and imaginative.
"I thought the balance of different elements of the course was perfect and I enjoyed the chance to perform in front of an encouraging audience, as well as hearing other people which is always a treat. I also loved that the venue was so close to a lovely village that was easy to walk to"
