Welcome to Audleys Wood Hotel

Nestled in the Hampshire countryside and surrounded by woodlands

Audleys Wood Hotel in Basingstoke, Hampshire, was a much loved home for much of its life and it is perhaps this episode in its history that gives the mansion such warmth and comfort to this day. 

Built in the 1880s as a private home for Thomas Pain, it subsequently enjoyed a rich and colourful history, with owners and visitors including the rich and famous. Today it is a 72 bedroom, 4 star hotel surrounded by woodlands and seven acres of private grounds. 

The hotel offers a range of bedrooms, from Classic to Feature rooms. Whether you are visiting for business or pleasure, Audleys Wood has so much to offer. It is the perfect venue for christenings, birthdays, anniversaries, engagements or just getting together with good friends for some fine dining. The Garden Pavilion is a self contained wedding venue and for meetings and conferences there are a whole host of options we know you will like. Find us just 18 miles from Reading and 32 miles from Southampton, with easy access from the M3.

We look forward to welcoming you
