Wonderful food, a warm welcome and a beautiful location.

    Guest Chefs at the School

    From time to time we like to let someone else take center stage and coming soon we have two wonderful guests...

    On July 11th Susy Atkins will bring armfuls of exciting wines to taste as we cook a range of summer dishes. Susy is well know for her TV appearances and columns in national newspapers and magazines

    Then on September 12th we will standby for the whirlwind of energy and exciting cooking that is Alex MacKay. Alex has worked with Delia and Raymond Blanc and has run his own cooking school in Provence.

At Manna from Devon we run cooking classes which inspire and educate while building skills and confidence. The small number of students attending our cooking courses (typically 4 to 8 people) means we can create a relaxed environment and allow everyone maximum hands on time.

We love the idea that our cooking school allows people to come together and share ideas and learn almost as much from each other as from us.  Our informal classes deliberately encourage the sharing of ideas, knowledge and experience.


We have two beautiful bed and breakfast rooms overlooking the River Dart.
