On the 25th and 26th of April we held our first Adoreum Exclusive event at The Falcon Hotel on the Castle Ashby Estate in Northhampton. An Adoreum exclusive is a paid, limited ticketed opportunity presented exclusively to Adoreum members. Members who bought a ticket enjoyed a 24 hour stay at the hotel with wellness and nature activities planned for the retreat.
The Falcon Hotel is owned by Lord and Lady Northhampton and was originally built as a coaching house in 1594 it has since been restored into the perfect rural getaway for rest, renewal and recuperation. Lord and Lady Northampton hosted lunch on our arrival that was followed by a nature walk on the 10,500 acre estate, led by expert Graham Warnes. Each member had gifts courtesy of LA-EVA and French Bloom awaiting them in their rooms.
Later in the day members experienced a relaxing gong bath (a first time for many of us!) hosted by Kanti Freeman. The last event of the day was a fine dining experience at EYAS Restaurant which is situated in the hotel. EYAS head chef Russell Bateman and his team work to incorporate sustainable local produce that is harvested and reared on the estate.
After a good night’s rest, the morning started with a meditation session and a. bit of cold-water therapy in Castle Ashby’s fresh open water swimming lake. Breakfast and a tour of the Castle Ashby grounds by the Lord and Lady themselves rounded of the refreshing retreat. We thank Lord and Lady Northampton for hosting us for the first ever Adoreum Experience and ensuring it was an overwhelming success!
