Soaring and swooping silently and majestically, birds of prey are fascinating creatures. If you get the chance to see them put through their paces don’t miss it.
Appleby Manor Hotel, on the edge of the Lake District, has a special ‘Come fly with us’ package that’s ideal for handling and flying these birds over the upcoming spring bank holiday.
Free family tickets to the Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre are included in the deal which includes two nights’ b&b with dinner the first evening, and a glass of fizz and strawberry meringue on arrival. The discounted rate is £149 per person sharing, while children sharing the room are £10 including breakfast.
Not far away on Windermere, Linthwaite House also has a money-saving bank holiday deal. Guests paying for dinner, bed and breakfast for Friday May 23 and b&b the following night receive complimentary dinner and a glass of champagne on the Saturday. Cost of the two nights is £500 for two.
Over in Suffolk, you can make the most of the extra day off work with a free third night at Hintlesham Hall. Those booking dinner, bed and breakfast for the bank holiday Friday and Saturday qualify for b&b on the Sunday providing dinner is taken at the hotel. The price is £370 for two.
