We love this Secret Space because…
We love this Space not only because of its unique country setting but because amongst the great, professionally run team building or group activities available is duck herding. Sounds fun!
This is not just a cookery school, this is the Foodworks Cookery School. Whilst food and cooking are at the centre of everything that happens here, this is a versatile Space able to cater for a variety of occasions.
Besides the School’s programme of cookery classes, the friendly team at Foodworks are experts in arranging bespoke events; ranging from your own Great Team Bake-Off or Master Chef competition to Cook and Clay days. So whether you are organising a corporate away day, a family celebration or are looking for something a bit different to do on a hen or stag weekend, if you think food is fabulous fun, then look no further.
Situated in the heart of the glorious Cotswold countryside on the Colesbourne Park Estate, the School, which is easily accessible from Cheltenham and Cirencester, offers more than just a Space in which to cook. French doors open out on to a pretty herb garden and BBQ area; perfect to enjoy your culinary creations ‘al fresco’ or for a private dining experience.
On days when the ovens are off, and the blenders are silent, the cooking stations double as great hot desks for those looking for somewhere to plug in and get online, away from the hustle and bustle. This cathedral-like Space also boasts a great chill out area with a help-yourself, always-full pot of locally brewed coffee pot on the mezzanine level and a selection of their scrumptious patisseries to keep you going.
Naturally, the fully-equipped School is also a great backdrop for food photography and is the perfect venue for catering or food companies seeking a purpose-built Space for training days, product development, showcasing food products or menu tastings.
Versatile, as we said!
