Course Reviews:

‘Hen Corner is a charming place where ordinary people are doing extraordinary things, and showing us how we can have a slice of the country life in an urban environment. Truly inspiring and a great first step on the road to beekeeping. I highly recommend this course to anyone who cares about where their food comes from or just wants to find out more about the fascinating honeybee. Keep up the great work Sara.’

‘Thank you so much for your warm welcome and your excellent course! It was very informative as you gave us all the details one needs to know before starting off with chickens.It was really great that you let us handle your pretty hens and answered all our questions so thoroughly! Would highly recommend this enjoyable course to any chicken-keeping enthusiast!’

‘Sara is a fantastic tutor; engaging and informative in perfect measure. These courses are excellent value for money; to learn in a home environment that you can easily replicate, with like-minded enthusiasts. And with home-made refreshments; endless supplies of wonderful coffee, biscuits and cakes from her own organic produce. And for the day course we were spoilt with a great lunch. Highly recommended and also a great day with friends.’

‘Sara provided a very interesting afternoon explaining the basic principles of bee keeping. I enjoyed the hands on aspect of the session. I strongly recommend Sara’s course to anyone interested in starting bee keeping or who just wants to know more about this fascinating area.’

  1. I have just seen your hen keeping course on Omlet and notice that you have an egg storage (?) would you be kind enough to let me know where you purchased it so that I too may be able to buy one.

    We have 6 assorted hens and are now attending bee keeping courses – so much fun.

    Thank you. Best wishes Jane

    • Hi Jane,

      Thanks for visiting Hen Corner!

      We bought the Egg Skelter from the Omlet Shop, it’s great as you can use the eggs in order of freshness!

      Enjoy your chickens…. we are just looking into bees as well!


  2. Thanks for the fun this evening. Koah and I had a great time. It was really interesting meeting the diverse group of participants and being able to share with them the rich wealth of information you both supplied. Lovely grub too!

    After tonight I really feel prepared to take this chicken thing on board. Under your auspices I’ve been able to move it from a dream into a reality.

    You really are very nice people.


  3. Hi Sara,
    Is September 25th the last Urban Chicken Keeping course you are running this year? I promised my friend I’d book us on it for her birthday but now I can’t do that date … and we really want to do it!

    Many thanks,


    • Thanks for getting in touch. It gets too late for evening courses after September, but we run family courses on Saturday afternoons, see any problems, let me know, hope to see you soon…

      • Thanks Sara … we’ve decided to leave it until you resume next year … which we’re hoping will be the spring? Don’t suppose you sell gift vouchers do you?

      • Thanks Lynne,
        Yes we do sell gift vouchers, complete with gift cards!
        I’ve just emailed you…


  4. Hi Sara,
    I had put tomorrow, Saturday 5th April in my diary as “Family Feathers and Fun! (Chicken Keeping for Families)” but I can no longer see this date on your website. Is it no longer on?
    I can’t find a phone number to contact you. How can I get in touch with you?

  5. Thanks Sara. We won’t be able to make it on the 3rd May. Can you send me your email address and/or phone number to discuss potential other date (for a small group of a couple of families)? Thanks.

    • Thanks Lucile,

      So sorry that you can’t make 3rd May.

      Please do email me at and we’ll look at new dates.

      Hope to see you soon,
