One example of what’s currently on offer is a two night break at the Lainston House Hotel. Just two miles north-west of the ancient cathedral city of Winchester, Lainston House Hotel is a beautiful 17th century William and Mary country house nestling in 63 acres of stunning Hampshire countryside. Offering 50 luxurious and individually designed bedrooms and suites and the elegant Avenue Restaurant (three AA Rosettes), it is a tranquil haven of quintessential Englishness.

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.
