Step inside a 15th century Cotswold thatched cottage to learn to bake English scones. See how the owners of the cottage have lovely restored the old farm labourer’s home and hear stories of the cottage’s ancestry. Whist enjoying making the scones using vintage cooking utensils in the cottage kitchen, there is also chance to sample some local English wine, while waiting for the scones to bake in the oven. While the scones are cooling, enjoy a short guided walking tour around the Cotswold ironstone village of Hanwell, visiting a 13th century church and a castle where King James l and Oliver Cromwell both stayed, before returning back to the cottage to enjoy your cream tea that you have prepared with homemade jam and clotted cream.
I'm your perfect guide having led short walks and tours of the Cotswolds to visitors for around 4 years. We have been lovingly restoring our 15th century thatch cottage using traditional methods and researching who's lived in the cottage going back to 1841. I'm a keen baker, baking bread and recreating the local recipes in our cottage kitchen - which will be warming and welcoming to everyone who comes and visits.
