Set amongst the tranquil Hampshire countryside, Lainston House is a five-star hotel that effortlessly blends contemporary luxury with antique charm. The listed building dates back to the 10th Century and has a stunning heritage brick façade and boutique interiors featuring chandeliers, stone fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. It's the perfect spot for a foodie getaway, located just outside Winchester town and a short drive to Stonehenge and the New Forest.   

Amongst the many joys of a stay at Lainston House is the traditional yet refined afternoon tea available every day all year round. Served on a tiered cake stand, expect a luxurious mix of savoury and sweet delights paired with a pot of tea, or upgrade to a 'sparking tea' for a glass of bubbles. On the savoury side, enjoy items such as a smoked salmon brioche and a garlic and thyme sausage roll. Those with a sweet tooth will be overjoyed with the rhubarb white chocolate choux bun and the peanut and dulce 35% tartlet, amongst other sugary goodies. Of course, afternoon tea would only be complete with scones, so finish off with these slathered in clotted cream and strawberry jam. A kids' menu also is available, featuring simple sandwiches and sweet treats served with hot chocolate or fruit juice that is perfect for little ones.   

The menu changes seasonally thanks to the beautiful walled-kitchen garden that grows a lot of the produce used in the various Lainston House eateries. During the summer months, you can enjoy all of this from the sanctity of the garden terrace that overlooks the grounds. If you fancy a stroll after your indulgent afternoon, head into the 63 acres of surrounding lush forest or stay closer to home and explore the stunning gardens right next to the terrace.   

On site you'll also find The Wellhouse, the hotel's signature restaurant that cooks all of its food over fire.
