Learn a Traditional Rural Skill in the Cotswolds

Learn a Traditional Rural Skill in the Cotswolds

Whilst holidaying in the Cotswolds in one of our Cotswold holiday cottages, why not combine your stay with learning a traditional rural skill? In the Cotswolds AONB, the Cotswolds Conservation Board run a number of courses throughout the year on which participants can learn hedgelaying techniques, how to build a drystone wall, how to prepare and use lime mortar, how to use green woodworking techniques to make wooden objects from unseasoned timber or try their hand at woodland coppicing, thatching, blacksmithing or stone carving.

Our Cotswold holiday cottages in Broadway are ideally located as a place to stay in the beautiful Cotswold countryside whilst learning an interesting and unusual traditional rural skill.

Courses run from January through to October through the Cotswolds. Details of available courses in 2018 can be seen at: www.cotswoldruralskills.org. Contact us for details of our Cotswold holiday cottages in Broadway.
