Children's Cookery School
All that's fun about cooking... in a castle!
Find out about our Young Chef of the Year competition
What better than the chance to learn to cook in the kitchen of a real castle? This is the stuff of fairytales for children and adults alike. Your children can learn everything that's fun about food from growing it in our kitchen garden, raising it (we have chickens and pigs here) to preparing, cooking and eating it.
It's all about cooking lots of proper food. And at the end of it all the chance to sit down together and share what everyone has made.
While all this is going on, parents can relax around the castle and grounds, go out for a walk, an unhurried lunch, visit the lakes or dales or just do nothing and enjoy the peace and quiet.
You can join one of our scheduled courses which run throughout the year and during October and February half terms and are geared around the ages of the children attending.
At other times put together your own bespoke course which can be arranged for birthdays, school groups or as part of a house party.
We have introducing a new bespoke course for families too, giving parents and children the chance to cook together in a fun and unhurried environment. You can plan, prepare and cook a whole three course meal and then sit down at the end of it all and eat together what you've made. These courses are arranged individually.
Scheduled children's courses are £65 per child per session (12 -4pm) including lunch and a take-home dish.
Family courses start at £150 per day for one adult and one child.
A private bespoke day just for you is £520, divisible between the number of participants, up to a maximum of eight.

Bespoke private days by individual arrangement
Little Augill Cooks & Family Cooks takes place in the castle's main kitchen so we are not able to run bespoke classes at peak times (Summer, Christmas & Easter school holidays) when the kitchen is required for full house breakfast, afternoon teas and dinner service.
All sessions are subject to a minimum number of four and we reserve the right to cancel an unsubscribed day in which case you will be offered an alternative date or a refund.

Working with schools & the community
We are proud to sponsor and host a Let's Get Cooking Cookery Club for our local primary school. This non profit-making organisation promotes cookery skills and healthy eating to
communities through teaching children and adults who get to cook real food in a real kitchen.
Let's Get Cooking is supported by the School Food Trust, Princes Trust & Business in the Community.
