We can provide masses of space to practise and perform together and lots of small areas to practise and learn in small groups. Musicians regularly perform here at weddings (harpists, guitarists, cellists, singers) and we have musicians come and write songs here. Some groups return annually with their tutors ... for masterclasses and concerts indoors and outside.

Arpeggione ( is an annual viola course of chamber music, masterclasses, orchestra and taster class for violinists:

  • 9-13th April 2017 Intermediate for violinists wishing to try the viola aged 8-16 years
  • 22-26th October 2017 Seniors for violinists aged 15 years and over (Grade 8 and above)

Wow! What a truly amazing place! You could not have been more helpful to all our mad requests for this first Arpeggione course. You have provided us with spectacular food, farmhouse accommodation and rehearsal rooms. We’ve had such fun doing concerts, masterclasses, dancing, mask-making, silk painting .... hope we can return next year. (Jacky Woods, Arpeggione April 2009 & annually twice a year ever since!)
