  • We have been meaning to come down for years and glad we finally made it. River cottage is a truly wonderful creation. We came for the festival and have enjoyed wonderful weather, music and incredible food in a scenic location. Cookery master classes were available at a small additional charge which included sushi, pizza making, curry workshop, wood fired cookery and ice cream a making to name a few. They had cookery demos and talks from many different guest speakers including Hugh on one of the live stages and finished off the evening nicely with star gazing set up by a number of different local astronomers. There is a shop selling all of the different River Cottage merchandise such as cookery books, DVDs and t-shirts. The restaurant has a lovely selection of seasonal food on offer but is very popular so a good idea to book a table. Can't recommended it enough. if you are thinking about coming you should and won't be disappointed.
  • Another excellent weekend at HQ . Great atmosphere, fantastic food and lovely staff
  • Faultless. Beautiful place. Incredible food. Joyful people.
  • The festival is how a old school festival should be, good food and not too big and grandiose
  • Fantastic experience. Best thing for me is Will the gardeners "Gardeners Beehive" Thanx again all you guys.
