The Relais Henley is introducing an exclusive set of adventurous new experiences exploring the rural idylls of Henley-on-Thames and surrounding English countryside.  With guided horse rides through the rolling Chiltern Hills, exhilarating private flights in a 1930s Tiger Moth and foraging in the grounds of a historic country estate, guests can explore the area of outstanding natural beauty that has inspired artists and writers for centuries. After the day’s activities, guests can retreat to the sanctuary of the 16-th century coaching inn alongside the river Thames.
