Our Inspector's view

Oakley Hall dates back to 1795 and has links to the celebrated novelist Jane Austen who lived in the nearby village of Steventon. Over the years, the Georgian manor house has been used as a boarding school and solely as a wedding and conference venue. However, in 2014, a major £4 million restoration project saw Oakley Hall restored to the magnificent country house hotel you see today. In 2018, their newest event space, the Garden Pavilion, was built, and in 2020, the Glasshouse Restaurant was renovated. With 50 bedrooms, a two AA Rosette restaurant, and acres of beautiful grounds to explore, Oakley Hall Hotel is perfect for everything from romantic weekends away to first-class conferences. And with one of the largest event spaces in Hampshire, they’ve become known as one of the best wedding venues in the area.

About the area

Discover Hampshire

Hampshire’s varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is without rival in southern England. Combine these varied landscapes and terrains with secluded and idyllic villages, complete with thatched and timber-framed cottages and Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, historic ports and cities, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles, and you have a county that is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.

If you’re a walker, stride out across the high, rolling, chalk downland of the north Hampshire ‘highlands’ with far-reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad ‘hangers’ close to the Sussex border. Or perhaps take a gentler stroll and meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon. Alternatively, wander across lonely salt marshes and beside fascinating coastal inlets or, perhaps, explore the beautiful medieval forest and heathland of the New Forest, the jewel in Hampshire’s crown.
