We have a luxurious two-night break for two in a gorgeous junior suite at the Lainston House Hotel to give away. This includes a three-course dinner on the first evening served in the 3 AA Rosette Avenue Restaurant, overlooking the mile-long avenue of lime trees, followed by full English breakfasts each morning. The winner will also enjoy a 90-minute falconry experience at the hotel – join the resident falconer as you make your way round the beautiful Hampshire countryside and see these magnificent birds in their natural environment.
