- Gourmet dining: The hotel's applauded restaurant is a reason to visit Lainston House in itself. With an intimate atmosphere and seasonal gourmet menus, The Avenue restaurant sources ingredients locally and directly from the hotel's own kitchen garden. You can also indulge in a dainty cream tea in the drawing room.
- Historic heritage: Lainston House is a refined 17th-century country manor turned five-star hotel set in 63 acres of Hampshire parkland, close to the city of Winchester. The historic charm doesn't stop there, as the grounds are also home to a beautiful dovecote and a 12th-century chapel ruin, plus distinctly regal-looking bedrooms with glass chandeliers.
- Plenty of activities: Whether you’d rather cosy up in the drawing room with a book, explore the grounds or take part in an exclusive cooking class, your leisure needs are taken care of here. If you’re looking for something a little more thrilling, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence holder also offers bird of prey handling classes and clay pigeon shooting.
