Course Bookings - Terms & Conditions

Ages: Courses and Days on the Farm are suitable for anyone 16 years of age upwards.  For insurance reasons, we cannot accept children on our courses.


Payment:  Payment is required in full at time of booking, in order to secure your place on the course.

Refunds and Cancellations:   

Cancellations more than 6 weeks prior to the event:  We will offer you a transfer to an alternative date. If this does not suit you, you may instead opt to receive an 80% refund of your booking fee.

Cancellations within 6 weeks' of the event:  No refund will be issued.  These are small group courses, and preparations will already be underway to run the day based on the number of bookings.

You may send a friend or family member in your place if you are unable to attend.  Please inform us of this in advance - we will need to know their details, and dietary requirements.

If we are forced to cancel your event for any reason, we will, of course offer you either a transfer to another date, or a full refund - whichever you prefer.

You may wish to consider travel insurance to cover you in the event of being unable to attend at short notice.

Data and Communication:  We will ask you to provide contact details at time of booking.  These will only be used to send you information about your attendance.  If you have consented to join our mailing list, you will be sent occasional updates by email, when new course dates become available.  We will not use your data for any other purposes, or pass it to other agencies.

We will send you a confirmation email at time of booking, and detailed information about attendance approximately two weeks prior to your event date.  Please feel free to get in touch if there is anything you need to ask before this.

Photography: You are very welcome to take photos during the day.  We may also take photos, which may be used on our website and facebook pages.  If you do not wish to have your photo taken for these purposes, please let us know.  We will ask again on the day.

What to Bring:  The course teaching sessions are held indoors - either in an enclosed barn, or in our house.  The practical sessions will be held outdoors, regardless of the weather!  Please ensure that you bring suitable warm clothing and waterproofs.  You may wish to bring a change of clothes.

Footwear:  Please bring welly boots, or other sturdy footwear for the outdoor sessions.  Please ensure that your footwear is clean before arrival on our farm.  You will also be asked to dip your boots in disinfectant before entering livestock areas.

For the Chicken course - plucking can be a messy business!  You may wish to bring overalls, or a change of clothes.  Aprons will be provided for the dressing stage.

Dietary Requirements: For smallholding courses, please inform us at time of booking, if you have specific dietary requirements.

For A Day on the Farm, please note that there is a fixed menu for each date (displayed on the booking page).  We are unfortunately unable to cater for any specific dietary requirements on these days, and the meal may contain allergens including dairy, wheat, gluten, nuts and other ingredients.  No vegetarian or vegan options will be available.


Course Notes:  Comprehensive notes will be provided on all smallholding courses, for you to take away for future reference.

Dogs:  Please do not bring dogs with you to the farm.  Our livestock are stressed by the presence of strange dogs.  If you bring a dog, he/she will be required to remain in your vehicle during the day - and in Summer it may be to hot for this to be an option.

Health and Safety: This is a working farm, with machinery, livestock and other potential hazards.  Please pay attention the safety briefing on the day.  In particular, please ensure that you wash your hands after handling any livestock or farm equipment, and before eating or drinking.  Adequate facilities are provided for this.  Do not handle any livestock, or enter livestock accommodation except when under direct supervision of your course instructor.

Enjoy Yourselves:   We want you to enjoy your time here.  There are a lot of rules on this page, but on the day you will find a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere, loads of useful information, plenty of delicious food, and lots of wonderful animals! 

We look forward to welcoming you to Argae Cottage.
