Activities at Huntsham Court

From the moment we arrived at Huntsham Court our itinerary was packed full of fun activities to keep us occupied. From cookery classes at the nearby River Cottage HQ, quad biking, archery, beauty treatments and massages to simply enjoying an indulgent afternoon tea in the library. One of my favourite pastimes here was taking an early morning hike through the beautiful surrounding Devonshire countryside.

We were invited to partake in the Xmas Canapé Masterclass to help us brush up on our seasonal cookery skills.

As we were there over Burns Night, we were invited to a spectacular evening of dinner and dancing, Ceilidh style of course! Tartan was the dress code, so I wore my Dolce & Gabanna 50’s style dress for the occasion. Drinks and dancing ensued! Too much fun was had by all! The rest of the evenings shots were not deemed suitable for public consumption! :) Burns night supper at Huntsham Court And so to bed…Bye Bye beautiful Huntsham Court, until next time!
