It’s May, it’s May the merry month of May and I could not help but take notice that the Brit’s are in full force with the continued celebrations of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the release of Julian Fellowes new film, DOWNTON ABBEY, The New Era.
In keeping with the theme, for those who will be traveling once again, please do try my cousin’s hotel, Hambleton Hall, for the ultimate British weekend experience.
“ A legend in the world of country house hotels, not just for its longevity but for its obsession with excellence” Tom Parker- Bowles
Hambleton Hall nestled a stones throw away from London in the countryside of Rutland, UK, is a gem that awaits anyone ready for the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
An unsurpassed, luxury-dining experience awaits from breakfast, luncheon, and afternoon tea to dinner in the Michelin Star restaurant where one is served scrumptious delicacies and baked goods from their very own Best Bakery in Britain’s Hambleton Bakery. Hambletonhall.com
