Terms & conditions
By booking on any of our courses or accommodation you agree to abide by our terms and conditions. We reserve the right to make minor amendments to the Cookery Courses content and prices without notice.
Ingredients, utensils, knives, equipment and aprons are provided for all courses. Some meals are included in the course cost – please see appropriate course details for further information.
What’s not included:
Prices do not include accommodation. Please refer to our website for accommodation details and prices.
If you are unsure as to your skill requirements for a course, please phone us so we can help ascertain your level of experience before booking. We rely on students being able to self assess their own skill level and are happy to assist with this but cannot be held liable if you book a course much higher or lower than your actual skill level. Please call us on 01803 752943 if you are in doubt.
Health & Safety:
All participants should wear shoes with flat, non-slip soles and covered toes, preferably leather. We cannot admit you to the cookery school without proper footwear. We recommend wearing sensible clothing i.e. not your best outfit – we are not liable for any damage that occurs to clothing. Long hair must be tied back in the kitchen. All course participants will receive a short briefing on health and safety before commencing the course.
Special dietary requirements, food allergies & illness:
We are unable to tailor our course content for special dietary requirements unless you are booking a private workshop or course. However, we will be happy to discuss course content beforehand to allow you to make your own alternative eating arrangements if necessary. There is no reduction in fee in this instance.
Please inform us in advance of any allergies, disabilities, diabetes, pregnancy, epilepsy, learning difficulties etc.
The cooking school is located in Kingswear, South Devon. We also run courses at other locations including the Deer Park Country House Hotel, Honiton, Devon; Casa Las Chimeneas, Mairena, Spain; and Humble By Nature, Near Monmouth, Wales. If in doubt, students should verify the location of their chosen course before booking.
One, Two and Three Day Courses: All payments should be made in full at the time of booking for both the Cookery Course and for the accommodation where appropriate unless otherwise agreed. We do not take provisional bookings and cannot confirm your place on a course or for accommodation until we receive full payment.
Cheques should be made payable to:
Manna from Devon and sent to Firmount House, Higher Contour Road, Kingswear, Devon, TQ6 0DE.
Manna from Devon Gift Vouchers
All gift vouchers are non-refundable and have no face value.
Bookings using a gift voucher are subject to availability – do call us first to make sure there is place on the course you would like to attend.
A gift voucher may be redeemed against a course at the cooking school or a stay in the B&B.
A gift voucher can be used in part payment for a course of greater value.
When the price of the course is less than the value of the gift voucher, no refund will be given but you will have a credit for the difference to use towards another course.
If you are a recipient of a voucher, you have a year from the date of issue to use it. If you cannot use it within that time, you can pass it on to another person but must ensure you inform us of the new person’s name and contact details. No refund will be given except in exceptional circumstances.
Cancellations & Refunds Policy
Our standard cancellation policy applies to all Cooking Courses bookings and Accommodation.
Up to 28 days of the start of your course you may request a change of course dates and we will happily transfer you to another date, or course subject to availability. You may also request a refund up to 28 days of the start of the course you have booked. Please note there is an administration and handling charge of £30 for processing customer refunds.
Up to 14 days of the start of your course you may also request a refund of the course you have booked. If we are able to resell the space we will refund the course fee in full. If we are unable to resell the space we will refund 50% of the course fee. Please note there is an administration and handling charge of £30 for processing customer refunds.
Within 14 days of the start of your course: Most bookings for courses at the Manna from Devon are made many months in advance. It is therefore hard for us to resell any places within 14 days of the start of the course date, and any cancellations within this time can result in lost revenue that affect the ability of the Cooking School to deliver quality courses. If you cancel your booking within 14 days of the start of your cookery course and we are unable to resell your place in the time remaining, you will forfeit any course fees and accommodation associated with your booking. We recommend travel insurance for all students that will cover your costs in the event of you being unable to attend your course.
Cancellations by Manna from Devon Cooking School:
In the unlikely event of cancellation by ourselves, we undertake to provide a suitable alternative within a reasonable period of time. If this is not possible, and it is not possible for a claim to be made for insurance, we undertake to make an immediate full refund for course fees.
