Surely there’s nowhere other than Talton Lodge where you could combine canoeing, Tug O’ War and sausage-making courses?
If you fancy getting back to nature – and then feasting on its produce while surrounded by 20 acres of gorgeous parkland, wood and gardens – then mosey on over to Talton Lodge. Pursuits range from the strenuous (Tug O’ War, canoeing and ceilidhs), to the not-so-strenuous (massage, story-telling and wine-tasting).
Whichever you chose, be sure not to miss out on one of Talton Lodge’s cooking courses. Sausage-making is particularly popular, with pork from the Gloucester Old Spot and Old Saddleback pigs that roam freely among the smallholding’s woods and fields. When night falls, why not bed down under the stars; you’ve got the pick of a luxury tipi, a tree-houseboat or an orchard wagon, in which to lay your head.
