Organic Meals in award winning surroundings

Carefully planned menus with locally sourced produce and our own organic vegetables are served in our environmentally built, award winning ‘Longhouse’ dining room. Mill on the Brue was selected as runner up in the 2007 BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards.

One to one Instructor

Your instructors will stay with their group for the entire length of the stay. We believe by having the same instructor (no more than 12 students) and an adult staff member of the party there is much more consistency and communication. Relationships between the instructor, students and member of the visiting staff flourishes and increases the level of trust and development of each student.

Teachers / Leaders

  • Proper beds in your tent.
  • Solar Electric light in your tent.
  • Kettle for hot drinks and your own fridge.

Bespoke programmes

We understand each group wants different outcomes from their visit and that is why we individually write your programme having asked you for your choice of activities.

To gain a better understand of how the week can vary so much we’ve written three sample programmes for a typical group spilt into four groups (no more than 12 children in a group)
