Courses, Learning & Self Improvement
You don’t have to journey to far-off shores to change the world or re-energise your life. There are many working holidays, volunteering holidays, and conservation holidays much closer to home. Many English charities and organisations run daily or longer residential courses helping out with conservation projects such as reclaiming green spaces for communities and helping out on organic farms. You can take the family, even quite young children, or venture alone to make new friends as well as learn new skills.
Surely there’s nowhere other than Talton Lodge where you could combine canoeing, Tug O’ War and sausage-making courses?
