Cider Making Course - record apple harvest

The late spring weather has led to projections of the best apple harvest in a decade.  This means a glut of apples for those people with access to apple trees either in their garden or elsewhere.  This is a great opportunity for those people wanting to have a go at artisan cider making.  Turn your windfall of apples in to a superb tasting artisan drink that can be enjoyed all year round.  It's not difficult to turn your excess apples into artisan cider or apple choose.  All you need is a little bit of knowledge and insight.  Come along to our cider making course with award winning cider maker Rob Gibbon from Moorlands Farm Cyder to find out how to turn your cider making dream into reality!

Tripadvisor - why people rather like our courses

Tripadvisor is a great measure of what people really think about your business.  We are thrilled that Hartingtons is rated No1 in the things to do in Bakewell.  We still can't quite believe that we are head of a fabulous institution that is Chatsworth House.

Our philosophy has always been to bring in experts, who are passionate about their specific food or drink specialism.  We think that way our students get taught by some who is passionate and knowledgable about what they do.  Our courses won't be the cheapest but we think that people value the quality of their experience more than just in pounds shilling and pence.  Out ultimate aim has always been to enable people to experience more in all aspects of their food and drink appreciation.

Have a look at the latest Tripadvisor Reviews to see what people think about our courses.
