    There were just two of us on the two day artisan baking course, which meant that we had David's undivided attention throughout. He is an excellent teacher. I was looking to improve technique and I learnt a lot. We stayed overnight in the bed and breakfast which was excellent. Overall, a great success. David and Holly are a class act.

    For anyone interested in baking bread, this is a great place to spend a weekend. David and Holly offer a relaxed but information packed weekend teaching the techniques of baking good artisan bread. There were just four of us in this course and we all left with a variety of bread to take home. The course included a good lunch on both days. I stayed at Firmount house in a peaceful, beautiful and quiet room with a fine view towards Dartmouth followed by a hearty full English breakfast before the second day of the course started. There was plenty of room to park the car on the quiet road beside the place. In the evening, we caught the passenger ferry to Dartmouth for an evening meal. This was a very enjoyable weekend and I hope to return in the future. I highly recommend it.

    Thank you Holly and Richard for such a fantastic day. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves making tapas. We learned so much and now have the confidence to make our own. We have just received the recipes, so we are not stopping now! I would definitely recommend this course, a relaxed atmosphere, a small group of learners and two very patient tutors made it easy to learn in a very comfortable setting. Thank you!

    It was a brilliant interactive cookery course. Our Tapas experience far exceeded my expectations, the simplicity of the demonstrations and practicing our cookery skills was great. Holly opened up her kitchen to us all with a cheery smile and a professional attitude. The day ran seamlessly. However, we managed to prepare and cook a large number of Tapas, which we all enjoyed with generous amounts of wine, after the knives were safely put away. It was a great experience. I will definitely do it again. Thank you for a really good experience.

    What a great day! From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome in this family kitchen. The day was relaxed, and it was a small group ensuring you were all involved. We learned how to cook a range of dishes, and got to eat them as a relaxed lunch. I would highly recommend taking one of the courses offered. I shall certainly be looking to return when I am in Kingswear again next year.

    Manna is set in a homely bed and breakfast, a converted Victorian house overlooking Dartmouth and its estuary. Manna offers a friendly, helpful and generous spirited suite of cooking courses. We did the fish and it was superb, cracking the monster crab, filleting, cooking stock, mussels, flatfish, paella, mayonnaise and washed down with a little vin blanc. I highly recommend it.
