Lainston House

Lainston House is a 17th century luxury hotel, offering luxurious stays, award-winning dining, bespoke meetings and memorable weddings. It is also home to the Season cookery school with award-winning chefs and renowned external experts.

Tucked away in 63 acres of rural Hampshire countryside, you can enjoy both a remote and relaxing escape in the country or a more activity filled getaway with lots to do on site, as well as so many attractions on your doorstep. Our luxurious and individually designed rooms and suites can be hard to tear yourself away from, but when you do you can enjoy beautiful walks and bike rides in the grounds, inspiring cookery classes in Season and delicious dining in The Avenue or our brand new restaurant, The Wellhouse. Not to mention outstanding afternoon teas in the drawing room and casual dining in The Cedar Bar and on the sun-drenched terrace. Head out to explore local attractions, with the historic city of Winchester just 10 minutes drive, as well as the River Test, Bombay Sapphire distillery, Marwell Zoo and Paultons Park (and so much more) all within 15 miles.

Spring into adventure…

It's the perfect time to spring into adventure with a rejuvenating getaway, feel the warming spring sunshine on your back and the great outdoors coming to life again with beautiful blooms and waking wildlife.

Stay three nights or more and receive our B Corp inspired Adventure Kit making sure you have everything you need to get out and about in the countryside before returning to South Lodge for some well deserved pampering!
