ANTIQUITY EXPERIENCE – Perfect for girls groups, hens or corporate groups

What do we really know about chocolate? We have all enjoyed this indulgent treat for over 170 years but would you like to learn about the rich history of the unique sweet treat that has changed the dessert world forever. The Antiquity experience is a unique workshop where you will learn your way through the history of chocolate by tasting touching, seeing, hearing and smelling your way through the past. Blind folds and hidden surprises along the way. Your senses will be tantalized and your taste buds will be dancing with joy.

Girls Day Out- Make a Chocolate Block workshop + Devonshire Tea 

Duration: 4 hours

Details: This workshop is not being provided during 2021 or 2022. Please refer to our girls weekend package page for accommodation and chocolate experiences combined which include Devonshire teas and chocolate workshops

The chocolate courses we provide are not your average chocolate workshops. Think of them as a day of making edible art with your besties, filled with an abundance of fun. We don’t believe in a stuffy kitchen type scenario. We want you to have an absolute blast, and end the day with a chocolate creation you’ve personally made that you never thought possible. Your chocolate tutor has a naughty sense of humor so feel free to let loose and be your true selves. This is your day and wickedly delicious humor is always welcome, actually it is highly encouraged! We love to teach people with a zest for life, and who enjoy the freedom of all things indulgent. Celebrate your special day, enjoy your family or friendships and indulge in all things good and delicious, because time together is precious and should be filled with joy.

You will be greeted with fairy floss champagne & delicious truffle tasting. Cassandra will then teach you to temper your own chocolate on marble and then make your very own gorgeous Belgian chocolate blocks For something extra special your group will even have the chance to taste the newest and the rarest chocolate in the world which they thought was extinct since 1916. Just when it couldn’t get any better we will play some fun surprise games, I hope your ready to be competitive with your friend or family because their are no rules and there is always a chocolate prize ready for the winner.

Behind the scenes our staff have been busy preparing the most devine Devonshire Tea for you.   It will be beautifully presented in our Chocolate Studio with breath taking panoramic views of the Budawang ranges. Annie from Annies grazing boxes is our external caterer & has an extensive knowledge and expert culinary skills from her experience owning a renowned tea house in the heart of England’s beautiful Peak district. You will be treated to freshly baked scones, homemade cakes, slices and treats. A large selection of teas and complimentary champagne and soft drinks are available.  This experience is gold class and not to be missed.

Booking in advance necessary.

What others are saying

I highly recommend doing a Chocolate workshop at the Chocolate Cottages, Cassandra was a fabulous teacher and made the workshop so much fun for my husband and I. We made a chocolate creation that was so beautiful and I still cant believe that we actually were able to make it with no experience using chocolate at all. It was such a fun day for us both and we definitely recommend booking one as a date with your partner or a weekend away. Thank you again Cassandra Ill be back next year with my girlfriends.

You deserve the perfect get away!
