Courses at Halsway Manor are residential, fully catered with accommodation on site. The manor and adjoining mews building have 28 comfortable bedrooms with 20 en-suite bathrooms and a total of 68 spaces. We have comfortable single, double, twin and dorms. Most bedrooms are ensuite, 7 bedrooms have shared showers and bathroom facilities.

We can cater for family groups in our larger dorm rooms. We have two ground floor twin ensuite rooms which are fully accessible. Campers are also welcome to bring tents or vans and hook-ups are available.  If you find that we are full for a course we can suggest accommodation in one of our charming local B&Bs.

Within the medieval manor (below right) we have practice rooms, dining rooms, a licensed bar, library with vaulted ceiling and extensive folk collection. The mews building (below left) also has workshop space, a courtyard and outdoor crafts space. The manor is set in grounds with formal garden and small woodland. Lots of space to practice! When it is cold out the fireplaces in the main hall and bar provide the perfect spots for relaxation and cosy sessions in the evening.



Bedrooms are simply and tastefully furnished with tea and coffee making facilities and space for your belongings. We offer a choice of single, double, four bed family rooms and dorms. When you book you’ll be asked which you prefer – you can see the layout in our bedroom plans here  and a selection are shown in the scrolling the gallery above. If you opt for a bed in a dorm sharing with others we’ll place you with other members of the same sex – its a nice way to meet people if you are coming solo.


Camping in our beautiful six acre gardens is available for many courses and events and there are pitches for tents, caravans and camper vans. There are four power points, two in the water garden area and two by the manor and are available on a first come, first served basis. We can’t guarantee a power point for everyone bringing a campervan. Campers are welcome to use the toilet and shower facilities in the house. There is a waste disposal point situated in the Water Gardens. Driving on the water garden is not advised in wet weather as the ground is very soft.

Bringing partners

For some courses it is possible to bring a partner who is not a course participant. There are lots of local places to explore and they are welcome to enjoy the manor in areas that are not being used for course tuition. This is not possible for all courses.


Only registered guide/assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens and buildings. For more information please see our Halsway Manor Dog Policy


Our location is one of our greatest assets, but when it comes to modern technology, it’s not always on our side. Wifi is available in the hall and bar, but we’re at the mercy of the rural network access, which can sometimes be affected by the weather. Wifi is not available in bedrooms or in The Mews. Consider your visit a chance to get away from all those devices!
