Fodor's Review

If you're looking for a discreet, luxurious hideaway in a woodland setting with uninterrupted views and an excellent spa, this hugely relaxing country-house hotel is hard to beat. The Regency main building has welcoming public rooms with open fires. Comfortable guest rooms, both here and in the outbuildings, combine impeccably appointed bathrooms with bespoke furniture and occasional quirky touches like freestanding bathtubs overlooking the forest. The formal restaurant (there's also a more casual eatery) is much improved after bringing in Gordon Ramsay protegeé Angela Hartnett as chef. The sumptuous spa is one of the country's best, and Wellington boots are available to borrow for walks along New Forest trails (maps provided in-room).
