A spa break with a difference, Stourview Cottage offers guests cottage accommodation complete with private spa facilities that make it ideal for a group getaway with exclusive use. It’s a retreat that allows you to bring a bottle of wine to have wherever you fancy, whether that’s sticking to dinner or as you lounge in the hot tub, and amongst its entertainment facets the owners are meticulous in offering unique activities as well.
Currently offering belly dancing classes with a choice of African, Egyptian and Greek themes, where you are provided with outfits to wear as well, they have now launched chocolate making masterclasses with a master chocolatier.
The class is a 90-minute workshop where you learn the basics of truffle making, how to make a chocolate ganache, how to use flavourings and pipe into chocolate shells. You learn how to dip truffles into chocolate and the decorating techniques for perfect gifts, you learn hand rolling truffles, how to use different chocolate transfer sheets so you can personalise your creations, and how to make your own lollipops whether they’re dusted in cocoa powder, covered in frosted raspberries or pistachios.
At the end of the class you can wrap your chocolates and put them into gift boxes, either saving them as a gift for someone special… or maybe just saving them to have after dinner…
