Stay, cook, eat, or create..

Would you like to learn to make the best slow fermented pizzas with the finest ingredients? Or gain confidence in creating an Italian or Persian feast for a special occasion? 


At The Bakehouse, we use organic and locally sourced foods because it matters to us & we know it matters to you. As we specialise in private group booking, why not come with your partner, family, friends or  colleagues for a birthday treat, unique party or celebration? Our friendly, private cookery classes for up to 8 people are suitable for everyone from absolute beginners & give you the opportunity to learn something new & do something different, enjoyable & creative in a beautiful environment.

We use our brilliant Gozney wood oven to make delicious food with you which you can enjoy over a glass of organic wine or a Luscombe elderflower fizz. All our recipes can be made at home in conventional ovens too!

With a minimum group size of 2 for our pizza course & 4 on other courses & a maximum of 8, we offer a free place to the organiser for groups of at least 6 people. Contact Emma to enquire or book a date for your own group- allow 4 hours for cooking & eating on the pizza course & all day for the other courses.

Perhaps you'd like to treat someone to a course as a really unique gift experience?

Gift vouchers are available.

This course is  4 hours long and can be booked on a morning, an afternoon or evening.
