the house

Groups of between four and twelve who are using the barn or stable are invited to join us as house guests.

The farmhouse is five hundred years old and with many original features it is truly beautiful in a simple, pared down way. There are splendid slate flagstones on the floor and window seats that nestle in the thick stone walls, At the same time, there are bright, modern touches that visually complement and make the whole place run smoothly. Original artworks can be found in every room.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms. One double, one single and two twin-bedded rooms. All except the double room have their own washbasins. In the large bathroom there is a roll-top bath and a separate power shower. Downstairs there is another lavatory and a snug sitting room with leather sofa, wood-burning stove, and a library of books and music for you to peruse.

You will be joining us for all your meals in the main room of the house – the large, welcoming kitchen and living area where the table is set beside an enormous open fire. This is the place to relax with a drink (our own spring water or a wooda cocktail?) identify that flower or mushroom you picked earlier, chat to the cooks and mull over the day’s work or the price of fish.

eating at wooda

We are both fine cooks and know that the best fires are burnt using the best fuel. So while you are burning up your creative energies in the barn let us provide the fuel that will keep you going. Gary believes in using the freshest produce available, cooking it simply to bring out the full flavour and allowing the ingredients to really speak for themselves. Max is an excellent back-up in the pudding and bakery department.

Gary is a vegetarian and really understands meat-free cuisine. Those that do eat meat, however, can enjoy the sweet, herby flavour of Wooda lamb. We naturally turn to our own organic produce first but with many other excellent sources nearby – the organic dairy, numerous local cheeses, the ocean's catch – you are guaranteed some exciting cooking.
