About Lainston House, Exclusive Collection

Lainston House is the English country house of dreams, with its heritage brick exterior, ivy set along the walls, and lime trees that lead you up to the house. The entire grounds looks like it’s been taken straight out of a Jane Austen novel, and makes for the perfect, romantic setting for your special day. Dating back to the 10th century, this historic house in Hampshire is set within 63 acres of land, which also includes a rustic barn and outdoor pavilion, giving plenty of options for where to hold your ceremony. There are plenty of rooms to choose from, award winning dining, bespoke packages and a dedicated wedding coordinator, to help you plan your day to perfection.

With eight locations within the grounds to hold your ceremony, there’s a size and style to suit every couple. The largest of the indoor spaces is The Dawley Barn, which is an original 17th century building that has been elegantly converted into a unique private room and is suitable for all occasions. Able to seat up to 120 guests for ceremonies, wedding receptions and dinners, this part of the grounds offers you an exclusive feel, whilst still being part of the main house.

Adjacent to the award winning Avenue restaurant, there is the Carlton Room that boasts incredible views of the mile long avenue of Lime trees, and provides an elegant setting for weddings of up to 50 guests. For more intimate ceremonies, there are also rooms that cater for between 20 and 40 guests.

For the warmer months, Lainston House offers an outdoor option, with a pavilion where you can admire the rolling Hampshire countryside whilst saying ‘I do’. The pavilion can hold up to 120 guests, and overlooks Lainston House, and is perfectly paired with the marquee or tipi to hold the wedding breakfast. With plenty of food, drinks and events packages, this is a truly special place to start the rest of your lives.
