Easter in Hampshire

We are excited to host Easter weekend at this new venue, in Basingstoke. This will be a fun filled weekend with good food, good company and music.

Hampshire Court Hotel & Spa

The four-star Hampshire Court Hotel sits in the heart of Jane Austen country, 3 miles from Basingstoke.

You probably won’t want to leave the hotel grounds – and who could blame you? With five indoor tennis courts, two swimming pools and a sumptuous spa, you’ve got everything you need right here. However, if you can tear yourself away, don’t miss some of the world-famous attractions nearby, including Stonehenge, Jane Austen’s House and Highclere Castle – the ‘real’ Downton Abbey.

Your Room

These lovely bright bedrooms are perfect for a single traveller on a short break. All standard rooms are en-suite with a bath and a separate walk-in shower. Each room has a TV with selected Sky channels and comes with free WiFi.

Upgrade to a more luxurious, deluxe room for an extra £27 per night, or a larger superior room with fluffy bathrobes and upgraded toiletries, for an extra £37 per night or a suite for £55.

Breakfast this morning is the last meal included in our package, but you don’t have to rush off even if you need to vacate your room.

All dietary requests given in advance will be catered for. 3 weeks before the break we will contact you to see which of the activities/walks you would like to join. Each activity is suitable for all ages.
