What a lovely place to go to for a course. Looked after throughout the day with drinks, cakes and a delicious lunch. Kate helped us to make amazing willow sculptures. My heron looks majestic in the garden. Can’t believe I made that in a day.
Thanks to all involved for a wonderful day.

Response from Larkswold:

Thank you so much Jill - we’re happy to hear you enjoyed the day! Hope to see you again.

Had a fantastic day at Larkswold. I thoroughly enjoyed the willow making course and delighted with the results. I will definitely be booking another course for later in the year.
Belinda was the perfect host, there was tea, coffee and cakes on offer for the whole day. Lunch was excellent. She couldn't do enough for us.
Thoroughly recommend this venue.

What a fantastic day! Off-the-scale hospitality and consideration, incredible to have been able to create such a magnificent willow sculpture of a heron to grace my garden (thanks to all the finessing from the lovely Kate). Fabulous lunch and cake. Magical location. Truly a perfect occasion.

Response from Larkswold:

Hi Marion,

High praise indeed. It was really lovely to meet you and hope you will be back to visit us soon.
