With views over 66 acres of gardens and parkland, Grade II-listed Tylney Hall is a picturesque venue for a Christmas party. A grand driveway and fine courtyard entrance set the tone. Inside, oak panelling and a minstrel gallery give the hotel’s baronial Tylney Suite a traditional atmosphere. A reception area, bar and cloakroom make the Chestnut Suite a fine choice for receptions, dinners and all-out parties, while the self-contained Hampshire Suite has a private bar and walled garden. Trains go direct into Waterloo, and overnight stays are offered at preferential rates.
