The course includes lots of interactive sessions with our friendly and knowledgeable team and allows plenty of time for you to relax, practise and hone skills and proficiency in each of the topic areas, and soak up the beautiful surroundings.

It was obviously brilliantly organised, and she will definitely be signing up to future courses!"
