The feel

Just two miles north-west of Winchester, Lainston House is a beautiful 17th Century country house nestling in 63 acres of stunning Hampshire countryside. As you turn into the long, sweeping, tree-lined drive, you are immediately transported to a world far away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Delicate archways and loggias frame the picture perfect entrance and a small amble reveals a beautiful 12th century chapel ruin. With the mile-long avenue of lime trees as a backdrop there are stunning photo opportunities all year round.

Fully licensed to conduct civil ceremonies and partnerships, you can exchange your vows as well as have your wedding reception with us. Outside caterers are welcome and for a wedding in the warmer months, picture your guests looking on as you are married in our beautiful outdoor wedding pavilion. Or if it’s a winter wedding, guests can mingle in the perfectly appointed Drawing Room or Dawley Barn sipping mulled wine and enjoying the cosy opulence of the hotel.

All of our rooms and suites are individually designed so no two are the same – and if you are excited by the idea of your very own country house, Lainston House can be reserved on an “Exclusive Use” basis.
