We spent a very special weekend at Lainston House as a birthday treat. The setting is absolutely beautiful and we had a fantastic room in the old house - "Hydrangea", huge with a spectacular view of the avenue of lime trees and the hills beyond. All the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Dinner was delicious. But the real highlight was hunting with hawks, an experience we couldn't recommend highly enough. We spent a couple of hours with falconer, Billy, and his dog, Ben, walking through the stunning grounds in Autumn sunshine while the hawks hunted above and around us. Being able to handle the birds was such an exciting thing to do, we felt very privileged and learnt so much from Billy. Definitely a memory to treasure.
