Activity Short Breaks in Hampshire, England

A Luxury Relais and Chateaux Hotel in England UK

Croquet in the Hampshire Countryside

Croquet is a quintessentially English pastime and the most relaxing way to spend time during a short break in the Hampshire countryside.

Enjoy a game on the immaculate croquet lawn, laid out in front of the bar terrace while sipping a nice cool beverage. The croquet mallets and balls are kept in the main foyer, and may be taken as and when required.

If, like most people, you are unsure of the rules of croquet, we provide you with a written set of instructions so you can learn to play.

Or we can pre-arrange some private tuition. Our croquet instructor will soon get you and your fellow guests enjoying this most English of games. Croquet can be enjoyed as an enhancement to afternoon tea on the terrace, or combined with Champagne or Pimm's to make a fun interlude before dinner.

From 2 to maximum 24 players at the same time for up to two hours: £200.00 plus VAT
