Denman makes learning a comfortable and delightful experience in a setting surpassed by few other establishments.

Founded by the National Federation of Women’s Institutes (NFWI) in 1948, Denman offers a wealth of opportunities to learn new skills on day schools and short courses in the field of cookery, craft and lifestyle. Everyone is welcome – men and women, members and non-members – we can even cater for groups of friends or hen parties who are looking for something a bit different.

Set in the picturesque village of Marcham, near Oxford, the Georgian mansion and 17 acres of grounds provide a relaxing environment for learning.

The Denman range includes something for every interest – from curries, cakes and crochet to papercutting, photography and Pilates – and the courses are designed to cater for the complete beginner to the more accomplished practitioner. Book on a course today!
