Lainston House - the home of Country Pursuits in Hampshire

No country house hotel would be complete without a fabulous selection of country pursuits – hunting, shooting, fishing – and we have them all (and more!) here at Lainston House.

Traditional rural activities are as popular as ever and in Hampshire we have a huge variety of opportunities to experience them right here in the grounds of Lainston House or just a few miles away.


Falconry

We are delighted to host our very own Bird of Prey aviary at the hotel, all run under the expert guidance of falconer Billy Taylor.

Billy cares for hawks, eagles and owls within the hotel grounds.  Each bird has been or is being trained for exciting flying displays and falconry experiences such as Hawk Walks or Hunting with Falcons.

Every Sunday Billy and his birds give a flying display, just book Sunday lunch or afternoon tea to be thoroughly entertained on the Lainston Terrace, with views across Hampshire’s most beautiful countryside. Private displays, or hand-on experiences during the walks and hunting experiences can be booked any day of the week.

Shooting

As a country house hotel, Lainston features acres of glorious grounds, and we have plenty of space to set up a clay pigeon range.  A variety of stands and traps can be placed to ensure all levels of ability are provided.

However if you prefer the real thing a number of local estates offer game shooting, pheasant and partridge when in season.
