You’re welcome to check-in from 2.30pm (1pm for better rooms). Please join us for afternoon tea.

During your stay

Mornings

We’ll start playing each morning from 9.30am, and have a nice cup of tea halfway through.
Afternoons
Join us for an optional guided walk in the gorgeous countryside. Or if you prefer to not walk, you can explore the area using the Discovery Point. These will help you make the most of your free time. There’s plenty of maps and a selection of the best local walking routes, as well as weather forecasts and public transport options – plus details about other places to visit. Or you can always get some more rehearsal time in by yourself.

Evenings

There’s more practice after dinner so you can spend the evening doing what you love best!
There’s usually an informal concert at the end of the holiday. Why not show off your new repertoire to other guests in the house.

Free day

Enjoy a free day on Monday to explore the local area or to relax in the Country House. Our Discovery Points help you make the most out of your free day. There’s plenty of maps and a selection of the best local walking routes, as well as weather forecasts and public transport options – plus details about other places to visit. Or why not get ready for a party piece tonight?

Departure day

Leave (on a high note) after a leisurely breakfast.

What to Bring

Music

Please bring the instrument/s you wish to play, and a music stand. All music for the week will be provided. The final evening may include an informal concert; if you would like to play something at this, please bring some music for a ‘party piece’ - eg one or two solos/duets/trios etc. If you play more than one instrument, please bring it with you.

Walking

To enjoy your walking comfortably and safely, it is essential that your footwear, clothing and equipment are suitable for the conditions likely to be encountered. Britain is famous for its changeable weather, so our advice is to come prepared for all eventualities. Please bring a rucksack, a thermos flask for a hot drink, a water bottle (at least 1 litre) and first aid kit – your leader’s first aid kit doesn’t contain any medication or blister kits (such as Compeed).
