Spinney Cook School

The fantastic working kitchen has been purposely designed for teaching. Nothing has been overlooked in its conception with a four oven Aga surrounded by character oak cabinets, which focus on a huge granite top island. State of the art appliances and conventional ovens are integrated within the central area, without compromising on sheer style and function. The whole air-conditioned environment is an absolute pleasure and joy to work in.

The integral conservatory with stunning views overlooking the garden provides a perfect haven for morning coffee. Lunch is served in the working kitchen or weather permitting we may dine on the terrace.
