Introducing Hook

The village grew as a stopping-off point on the London to Exeter stagecoach route. The transport links are still excellent, and getting to London, the New Forest or Southampton is a breeze. Or simply enjoy the beauty of the Hampshire countryside from your luxury boutique hotel.

Things to do

Hampshire locals are proud of their agricultural heritage, and you won’t get a better impression of the plenty of the land than at a farmers’ market. With top quality seasonal food, the markets are held regularly throughout the area during the summer months.

If you’re a Jane Austen fan, her house in nearby Chawlton is well worth a visit. Here you’ll find lots of memorabilia to pore over and original manuscripts to admire, as well as displays telling the story of Jane and her family.

Hook may be a modern commuter village but there’s plenty of history if you look closer. From Roman ruins, to the 15th-century architecture of the White Hart Hotel in the centre, you’ll find lots to admire. 

Top Tip from SLH

If you enjoy walking or cycling, Hampshire is home to two national parks: the South Downs in the east and the New Forest in the west.
