Entertain the whole family during half-term or school holidays on an Old Thorns short break full of sweet treats, adventure, and filled with fun!

Set in the heart of Hampshire, the resort is surrounded by luscious countryside with family walking trails, fantastic local activities plus amazing onsite entertainment including a swimming pool, diner-style café, virtual golf experience suitable for kids (and grown-ups too!) and pool tables.

With our Little Adventure break, you’ll get some yummy extra surprises included in your stay! All you need to do is bring wellies, and board games and be prepared to enjoy plenty of giggles whilst making memories that will last a lifetime.

Enjoy and Explore our Hotel

No visit to Old Thorns is complete without a trip to Oties! Choose from a selection of delicious pancakes and waffles, and of course, ice cream. Take a seat in one of our cosy booths, and enjoy the music and some tasty treats.

Our 20m swimming pool is a great spot to practise swimming or enjoy playing in the pool. We have children's swimming times in the pool during the week and at the weekend, please check these ahead of your visit.

On the driving range you'll find Toptracer Range, a great way to try golf without going out on the course, the fishing game is an activity the kids will love where shots will catch a fish on this interactive game.
