Here are some recommendations of places to stay nearby. On the morning of the course most people drive to Timsbury Village and stroll down to the school. We are able to pick you up from the church in Timsbury and drive you down to Vale House Kitchen - please let us know if this is something you require.


Really a restaurant with rooms, THE PIG-near Bath is tucked away in the folds of the Mendip Hills.  With an obsessive commitment to home grown and local produce, THE PIG-near Bath celebrates the seasons and uses only the best, freshest and most authentic foods and ingredients. It is all about the kitchen garden, it is the beating heart of the operation...everything is driven by the gardener/forager and chef – they grow and find the food – the chef then creates the menu; uncomplicated and simple British garden food, true to the micro seasons with the emphasis squarely on fresh, clean flavours.
