Dale House Barn has published dates for an exciting range of courses covering everything from bread making to mountain biking.

Proprietor Dominique Ashford has recently built a new demonstration kitchen at Dale House, and many of the courses on offer tap into her background and experience as a highly skilled pastry chef in Michelin-starred restaurants across the UK.

When she isn't in the kitchen, Dominique is also a keen cyclist and outdoor adventurer, and will again be hosting her popular ladies mountain biking weekends with expert rider Liz Peacock.

Most of the courses are two-day residential affairs, with accommodation available in the luxury B&B or bunk barn in an idyllic location beneath the rugged outcrops of Bowland Knotts - a couple of miles outside Slaidburn.
