Aune Barn Courses
Learn real skills with real experts in a really beautiful place
Aune Barn opens in June 2013, offering weekend (W/E) and Day (D) courses in creative, sustainable skills. All our courses are run by experts in their field.
Aune Barn is a renovated Georgian Barn with views across Dartmoor. The Classroom , heated by log burner, offers ample space in a comfortable setting. Downstairs, a large Kitchen/Dining area has a Rayburn and plenty of storage space. Shower facilities and a Pixie Compost Loo are nearby. Aune Barn is an off-road venue , and pick up is from the nearby village of South Brent. Camping is available on site, all food is provided (with some 'cook-it-yourself' meals - we provide the food). Bring a dongle and access wifi.
