A charming 17th century country house hotel standing elegantly in 63 acres of Hampshire parkland. Delicate archways and loggias frame the picture perfect entrance and a small amble reveals a beautiful 12th century chapel ruin and pretty dovecote amidst copious countryside.

Lainston House is a beautiful 17th century country house just two miles from Winchester City Centre. This stunning hotel offers 50 luxurious and individually designed bedrooms as well as the fine dining restaurant, The Avenue, which takes its name from the magnificent mile long avenue of lime trees viewed from your table. Head Chef Phil Yeomans love of the British larder and his inventive personality along with produce from the hotel’s kitchen gardens are evident on the superb menus.

Situated in the grounds is SEASON, The Exclusive Cookery School offering a wide variety of classes in a fun and relaxed, yet professional setting.
