A five-star Winchester country house with a raved-about restaurant and beautiful grounds – includes breakfast and optional dinner

  • The hotel's applauded restaurant is a reason to visit Lainston House in itself. With an intimate atmosphere and seasonal gourmet menus, Avenue restaurant sources ingredients locally and directly from the hotel's own gardens. You can also indulge in a dainty afternoon tea in the drawing room. 

  • Lainston House is a refined 17th-century country manor turned five-star hotel set in 63 acres of Hampshire parkland, close to the cathedral city of Winchester. The historic charm doesn't stop there either, as the grounds are also home to a beautiful dovecote and a 12th-century chapel ruin.

  • Whether you’d rather cosy up in the drawing room with a book or explore the grounds, your leisure needs are taken care of here. If you’re looking for something a little more thrilling, sign yourself up for a bird of prey handling class or clay pigeon shooting.

  • The five-star bedrooms have a distinctly regal vibe with glossy mahogany furnishings, traditional fabrics and glass chandeliers. Traditional Junior suites boast rain showers, king-size beds, open-plan seating areas and underfloor heating - perfect for those chilly nights.

Set within 63 acres of beautifully landscaped countryside, you could spend your entire trip just wandering the grounds and engaging in the exciting country pursuits provided by the hotel. However, since you’re only a short drive from Salisbury, Stonehenge and the New Forest, we recommend bringing a car and exploring the local area and its quaint villages, country pubs and superb scenery. Visit England’s ancient capital, the city of Winchester, explore the Medieval buildings and the impressive cathedral, or climb to the top of St. Giles Hill for views across the city and beyond.
