Beautiful architecture nestled in green landscapes a plenty, the blissful and tranquil natural settings of Winchester Cathedral, Mottisfont Abbey and Portchester Castle are surely what inspired the phrase ‘less is more’ and may in fact be the motivation for present-day literary greats to put together future classics. For those of you looking for a little more ‘more’ and experience all the adrenaline and exhilaration that the county has to offer, why not opt for a Powerboat Day, Blue Box Sailing and the Tank Driving Company for excitement in the very real sense of the word, all accessible from your Hampshire accommodation.
