Set in parkland, surrounded by deer and rabbits, this a stately-home hotel (think Downton Abbey) which has an excellent restaurant and fun activities for the kids. We visited with our ten, nine and six year olds who loved the horse riding and the birds of prey center. They had such fun on a lesson and trek in the morning at the pony center that they returned the same afternoon for a second lesson and ride (Thank you Fiona) . We were very impressed by the quality of the instructors and the care they took of our horse riding novices. Thank you Jane and Tim. Sophie at the bird of prey center soon had owls and hawks landing on our children's outstretched hands. Although the hotel is outstanding in its own right, the activities for children at the trekking and the bird centers turn it into an unforgettable experience. Having happy and delighted children made our stay much better too!
