Have just spent a very special day making a Christmas wreath with Lisa. On arrival we were treated to home made muffins and hot coffee then onto the wreath making. Half way through the day lunch was served, all home made, very delicious. The day passed quickly and all too soon it was over. Lisa is a wonderful teacher, nothing too much trouble but equally not standing over you. She was able to skilfully guide everyone to make beautiful Christmas wreaths. Thank you, will be back next year.

Response from All Hallows Farmhouse Cookery School:

Hello Dawn
Many thanks indeed for taking the time to write a review following your day here at the farmhouse creating a Christmas wreath to hang on your door.
I loved our chats about AGA cookery and as promised will send some cookery tips to you for preparing your family dinner this festive season.
We are also delighted to read that you enjoyed your freshly baked English muffins that we served with tea and homemade marmalade when everyone arrived. As well as enjoying lunch beside the log fire in the dining room.
We wish you a wonderful Christmastime and very much hope to welcome you here to the farmhouse another time.
All best wishes Lisa
