Our location

The furniture school is set on the beautiful estate of Scotney Castle. The gardens, castle, and house are a short walk from the Workshop. For more information on Scotney Castle, see The National Trust's website.

The Workshop itself is housed in refurbished woodland estate buildings, comprising two purpose-designed, furniture-making and machine woodworking areas.

Adjoining the Workshops, the school has its own timber yard, and promotes the conversion, drying, and use of local and sustainable hardwoods.
