For the ultimate gourmet escape, spend the day at Chewton Glen’s new cookery school then, check in for the night and enjoy a relaxing spa break, too.

Chewton Glen’s newly-opened cookery school is firmly on my foodie bucket list.

When it comes to choosing a cookery break in the UK, it’s fair to say that this world-class country house hotel has got a finger in every pie. You can learn new cookery skills, pick your herbs from the kitchen garden and eat in the cookery school’s own restaurant.

The cherry on top? After a busy day in the kitchen, relax in the hotel’s spa and then check in for a peaceful night in the forest. Foodie breaks don’t get much better than this.

Cook in The Kitchen Cookery School

Housed in an impressive standalone building, and overseen by celebrity chef, James Martin, The Kitchen is part cookery school and part informal restaurant. The 12-station cookery school is led by Chef Tutor, Rob Cottam and features a rolling roster of courses and demonstrations all designed to inspire, inform and educate. A day spent with Rob will leave you with new culinary skills and fresh ideas to take back to your own kitchen.

Relax in Chewton Glen’s Spa

After cooking in The Kitchen, unwind in the luxury of Chewton Glen’s world-class spa. Go for a dip in the 17-metre indoor swimming pool.  Relax in an aromatherapy sauna, a crystal steam room, or treat yourself to one of 50 available treatments and holistic therapies. You can even have an alfresco massage in the Kitchen Garden. Feeling more active? Play a round of golf, a game of tennis or take one of the daily classes on offer.
