There is a definite crispness in¬†the air now,¬†heralding the arrival¬†of game, wild¬†mushrooms and other Autumnal treats. While the weather is still perfect for¬†walking, cycling and riding¬†it’s also a great time to enjoy¬†replenishing Spa treats and tempting gourmet indulgences, such as our Estate Lunch Menu – currently featuring grouse – or¬†our inspiring range of seasonal¬†cookery courses.
