If you’d like to expand your horizons, Dillington House is the place to come. Our study breaks cover all manner of subjects – both academic and practical. What is more, they take place in stunning, tranquil surroundings – meaning that, when you stay with us, you really can switch off from it all.
Our courses cater for all levels of ability, from novices through to the more experienced. For most of our courses there are no minimum entry requirements. All that’s needed is enthusiasm for the subject and a desire to learn.
When you take part in one of our study breaks, you will benefit from expert tuition in an informal, supportive and stimulating environment. Not only will this help to enhance your knowledge, but it will also give you the chance to meet a friendly group of likeminded people.
All of our course fees are inclusive of tuition, meals, refreshments and - where applicable - transport and entrances. For those staying at Dillington, the fees also include comfortable en-suite accommodation. If you live locally, or want to stay with friends or family, you can attend any of our study breaks on a non-residential basis.
