  • Barbury Races

    Racehorses have been trained around Barbury for over a century & the wider area is a haven for lovers of fast horses. Holding four Point to Point meetings a year, Barbury racecourse is set within a natural amphitheatre in picturesque countryside. A well established and much loved Point to Point track, it’s an enjoyable & inexpensive day out for all the family. Bring a picnic, enjoy good quality sport and have a laugh with friends.There’s plenty of space for the children to run around & if it’s bad weather you can watch the racing from your car – no grandstands here! The racecourse is popular with riders, and, for spectators, it’s a chance to see young riders coming up the ranks or old favourites returning to the track. There’s plenty of room around the paddock & winner’s enclosure & unlike other professional sports, both the jockeys & trainers are very approachable & happy to autograph. Situated just moments from Swindon and the M4, the incredibly welcoming community means you don’t need to be an expert to enjoy your day. It’s easy to see all the action and there’s plenty of time to wander around, have a drink or bite to eat, or browse some of the stalls. With meetings held from December to April it’s a fun day out for anyone who loves sport and the outdoors. ...»

  • The Farm Cookery School & Netherstreet Beef

    Gretchen Winter’s lifelong dream of a cookery school at the farm where she grew up became a reality in 2016. The impressive result can be put down to her combined experience of running restaurants & events plus teaching children to cook in schools through her company Jack & Maddie. Located at Netherstreet Farm, home to her family since 1889, it’s a beautiful space in a rural setting. ‘I want to make cookery classes affordable – a place for people rather than chefs. It’s all about demystifying cooking and using ingredients that are readily available locally.’ The spacious cookery school has 8 stations fitted with domestic appliances, so it feels like a home from home. There’s a dedicated demo room and two conference rooms with a smaller breakout room. Perfect for off-site meetings, team building or large parties. ‘We have classes focusing on global flavours like Indian, Moroccan, Spanish, Italian or Korean and ‘Cook from Scratch’ is perfect for beginners. A popular event is ‘Cook & Dine’ where people get help cooking their meal & then stay and enjoy it without needing to wash up. Holiday clubs and Birthday Parties are also in demand.’ At £25 for a demo and starting from £35 for a class including your meal it’s a steal! Gretchen and her husband Matthew are also focusing on Galloway Beef Production and the meat is now available at www.netherstreetfarm.co.uk...»
