People love the thrill of staying somewhere different so we’ve compiled some vital info on some of the most interesting places to stay in Hampshire

 

Chewton Glen Treehouses

Around 300 to 400m away from the main hotel building lay a miscellany of luxury treehouse accommodation. Far away from the normal hotel room, the treehouse rooms offer a private balcony as well as huge windows to give a panoramic of the tree tops below.

Endymion

Endymion is a single storey timbered lodge lying in the grounds of the owner’s cottage. Ancient woodland makes up the backdrop of the cottage and is also brilliant for colder evenings with a woodburner in the lodge. The cottage is available all year round and has fantastic reviews.

 

Solent Forts

Originally built to protect Portsmouth harbour from attack, Spitbank Fort, Horse Sand Fort and No Man’s Fort are luxury destinations with a range of features such as roof top pools, saunas, not forgetting the amazing views across the Solent.

 

Aviator

The Aviator Hotel around 2 miles from Farnborough airport is a unique hotel with a contemporary feel throughout. There are stunning views of the airfield available as well as complimentary films and music for guests.
