Onsite self-catering accommodation

The Stables and The Old Workshop at Churchfield Farm

We have two units of self-catering accommodation available onsite: The Stables and The Old Workshop.

These are situated on either side of a private paved courtyard, with ample and secure, off-road parking. Bicycles can be stored close by. 

These two units have been converted recently to a very high specification and are ideal for students and partners taking a course at The Windsor Workshop. The workshop is just 50 metres from the front door!

Some store cupboard basics are provided and fresh milk, bread butter and fruit will be put in on the day of your arrival.

We have strict NO SMOKING  and NO PETS policies!

If you are interested in renting one of the units, during a course, please contact James Mursell to check availability.

The Stables is the larger unit, with an upper mezzanine bedroom with a 5 ft. double bed and also a sofa bed in the sitting area downstairs.

The Old Workshop is more compact, also with a 5 ft. double bed and bed-sit layout. Both units have fully equipped kitchens and shower rooms.

Other accommodation

The Queen’s Head pub is 5 minutes walk away, along with a Post Office stores and beautiful 11th century church.

Supermarkets are 3-4 miles from the farm.

Chair Making Courses

No previous experience is necessary to successfully complete a Windsor chair making course and yet experienced woodworkers will still be fully challenged. Individual guidance and assistance will be provided as appropriate, and every effort will be made to ensure a rewarding and enjoyable course.

Chair Making Book

Written by James Mursell, this book was the first new book about the making and design of Windsor chairs for over 10 years. It was written with a broad readership in mind and is aimed at existing Windsor chair makers and also at those who are contemplating making their first chair.

Tool Testimonials

“This tool is phenomenal. I bought two, one for myself and another for my Windsor chairmaker instructor. Compared to the other travishers I have used, yours is very good to work with and everyone who has tried it loves it. I just ordered a second one and your two spokeshaves which I trust will be as enjoyable to use. Thanks again for making such great tools.” LG (USA) 2015
