Play tennis
This resort has 6 outdoor tennis fields. They are fit for both single and double matches, should the weather permit it. If you are not sure of how to play tennis you can receive some professional coaching as well.

Trying the best food on the menu
The resort has 2 restaurants, but only one of them operates from Monday through Sunday. This is The Tavern and the food here is on par with the traditional pub fare. On Sundays, this restaurant offers a brunch menu. Junction is the signature restaurant of the resort, and eating here is almost the same as eating in the chef’s house.

Attending a cooking lesson
While you will love eating at The Tavern or at Junction restaurants, you might want to learn how to make your new favorite dish at home. The cooking lessons at the Cook Academy take place in an intimate setting.

Play golf
If playing tennis is too demanding for you, then golf could be a better option. The golf course is not on site, but it can be filled with locals since they really like this course. The Links at Lang Farm is where you’ll test your golfing skills, and the best part is the ideal conditions this course has.

Take a tour in the balloon
If you’d like to see as much landscape as you possible can a tour in the hot air balloon might be in order. The rides will start on the property of the resort and many past fliers confessed this was an unforgettable experience.

it is important to know how to get the most for your money. When times are a little tougher, knowing how to save becomes an essential skill. But sometimes when we try to save money, we actually end up getting less than we bargained for.
