River Cottage HQRiver Cottage has given millions of TV viewers a taste for great cooking since 1998, when Hugh first brought his famous food ethos to Channel 4. Their hard-hitting campaigns have changed the eating habits of a nation and improved the welfare and sustainability of animals and fish.

These days River Cottage splits neatly into two.  There are four Canteens, award-winning restaurants and delis based in the South West where they combine their philosophy with the finest producers in Axminster, Bristol, Plymouth and - most recently - Winchester.

River Cottage HQ

Cookery School

River Cottage HQ, found on the Devon and Dorset border, is home to everything they do and is the base for their Cookery and Chefs' School, unique dining experiences and memorable events.

River Cottage HQ is at Park Farm, a 65 acre organic farm which is a few minutes drive from Spillers Farm.  At the HQ there are a wide range of day courses including butchery, baking, foraging, fish and gardening in addition to artisan skills such as curing and smoking, preserving, beekeeping and building your own clay oven. The courses range from one or two days to an all-encompassing four day cookery course.

As well as the cookery school there are a range of events held at River Cottage including Food Fairs and live music nights.

Evening Events at River Cottage HQ

A beautiful four course local and seasonal menu awaits those who book an evening dinner at River Cottage HQ.  Guests are treated to canapés and a seasonal tipple in the Mongolian Yurt before being seated on long oak tables in the converted threshing barn.  Park Farm where the evening events are held, is a beautifully refurbished 17th century farmhouse and is beautifully situated in a valley opposite Spillers Farm.  We always advise those who book summer evening events to get there early as the view is spectacular.
