Cookery workshops

We are offering vegan cookery workshops for the first time this autumn.

Vegan Christmas

23rd – 25th November, or

Suitable for those moving to a vegan lifestyle, long term vegans seeking new ideas and those who cook for vegans, or anyone who is interested. Aim to be fun, with demonstrations, discussions, a little hands on, idea sharing, very informal. We will cover 4 courses of a Christmas dinner, main dish being walnut pate en-croute, adapted from Rose Elliot, and then eat it in the evening! Sunday we will make breakfast and a simple lunch. Recipes to take away.

Introductory cost, inclusive of accommodation, full board, two nights, £160 per person, based on two sharing. No problem if partner non participatory, they will pay £68 bed and breakfast, plus any meals they have. £40 single supplement. £50.00 for non residents, includes supper on the Saturday, simple lunches and two glasses wine. Minimum 3 people, maximum, 6.

Look out for more workshops in the new year. Why not give this as a gift to someone?

Christmas at Michael House 2012

Fancy being looked after and spoiled over the Christmas period? Get away from it all, relax, walk and have tea by the open fire at Michael House, followed by delicious festive meals! We are offering a four night break over Christmas again this year, as follows:

Arrive on Monday 24th December, in time for afternoon tea and a 3 course evening meal.

On Christmas Day, have a leisurely breakfast, which will precede a four course Christmas dinner in the early/mid afternoon. Supper will be buffet style.

Boxing Day, another leisurely breakfast and a light lunch if you would like it. Afternoon tea will again be served by the fire, and a three course evening meal will follow.

On Thursday 27th, breakfast, afternoon tea and a three course supper will be on offer. Guests will depart on the Friday morning, after breakfast.

Four nights, partly full board, £325 per person for the en-suite rooms, and £275 for the room with private bathroom. A single supplement will apply.

Bookings for earlier or later dates will be at the normal rate.

We have availability this weekend if anyone is thinking of visiting Cornwall, and the weather forecast is not too bad. Don't hold me to that if it rains the whole weekend though...

An update on our trial with offering non dairy milk only -  we have reluctantly decided, following some people requesting dairy milk, to have dairy milk available for now, but to provide opportunities for guests to try other milks.  We now have a little fridge in the dining room, which will hold soya, dairy and other milks for use in the bedrooms.

We have some availability before and after the Bank Holiday and into the beginning of September.  Hope to see you soon.
