This is one of my favorite hotels in the world. The staff, setting and service were most memorable, along with the memorable falconry experience.

Went there while staying at The Lodge on the same grounds. Really a great way to spend an hour and a half on a Sunday morning. Really nice features were the Walled Garden and the Falconry. Worth a visit.

We don't remember a charge, but we did not take advantage of that venue, too many other fun things going on.
