“Scintillating luxury hotel in a superbly redesigned Georgian house in the heart of the New Forest. Wonderfully comfortable beds in large rooms all with unique features including free standing baths, fireplaces or four posters. A superb restaurant curated by a celebrity chef. Countryside perfection.”

Hotel Overview

“No expense has been spared in the creation of this starry, yet naturally friendly, welcoming and laid back new hotel. Architects Charles Morris and Ben Pentreath and interior designer David Collins have created a beautifully crafted showpiece, serene yet happening, with glamorous interiors, two restaurants (one for fine dining, the other, the Scullery, more informal) and sybaritic bedrooms and suites, both in the elegant main house and in charming, idiosyncratic pavilions behind. A state of the art spa has recently opened. Children welcome: there’s plenty to do for all the family, from foraging to boating. Great for celebrations or just chilling time.”

Why I Love spending time in the New Forest.

"145 square miles of ancient heath and woodland, where ponies, donkeys, pigs, cattle and deer still freely roam. By Fiona Duncan."

Lime Wood

"Attention has been paid to all the little details: oaks doors, lush colours and soft lighting, giving a relaxing and content atmosphere. The spa is excellent."

Hartnett Holder & Co, Lime Wood

"A posh youth dressed head to toe in tweed ushers us into a chic urbanista's fantasy of the perfect country house, the sort of place where captains of industry don self-conscious denim and owners of Soho production companies pine for a plus-four."

Barometer

"Our room has two balconies overlooking the forest, open fireplaces and some charming touches: wooden toothbrushes, bowls of fresh dates and mandarins. It is immediately welcoming, luxurious without proclaiming it."
