Where to find us

Idyllic, peaceful, courses on the Devon/ Dorset border by the sea!

We empower you to realise your own cob building dream at our cob building site in Uplyme, Lyme Regis, Dorset. We have about an acre of lush land, looking across the valley to the stunning Uplyme viaduct, a short walk from the wonderful local campsite and numerous B&B options, and a short distance from the sea. You will learn all the practical skills and theory you need at our bespoke site to return home and realise your own cob building project.
