Food will play a central part of a River Cottage Retreat, whether learning to think differently about it and cooking it and of course eating it. You will spend two days in the cookery school with gut health expert and tutor Naomi Devlin. You'll learn about gut health, fermentation and mindful eating.
Stay in luxury and choose from one of three stylishly decorated bedrooms in the River Cottage Farmhouse. Or you get closer to nature and stay in a comfortably furnished bell tent at the heart of the farm.
