'But I won’t know anyone’. If you are wondering about doing this course, and you’re on your own, take a chance, like I did, you won't regret it. It was the most wonderful experience. It’s a long time since I enjoyed anything so much. To the talented teachers, to the fantastic food, and the lovely people I met in the beautiful Cotswolds. You come away feeling uplifted. I loved every minute of it.
