"We were blown away at how beautiful the grounds at Wildhive were. Such a beautiful place - our candle-making session was set in the Dovedale Room and we had a really insightful session on which fragrances work together. We enjoyed a delicious lunch with amazing staff. The workshop was such a nice day out and the location at Callow Hall made it very special. I'd recommend as a solo treat or a lovely day out with friends."
