New Forest Retreat
The Perfect New Forest Winter Break
During the winter the New Forest is the best location to get away with your loved one for a relaxing break. All of our hotels are placed in the heart of the New Forest so you’re surrounded by fresh country air and beautiful scenery – two essential elements for a peaceful retreat.
In the mornings enjoy some extra time nestled in bed with a mug of coffee whilst watching the sun rise over the beautiful New Forest landscapes – there really is no need to rush. When you’re ready, join us in one of our restaurants for a breakfast to kick-start the day. Choose from body warming porridge served with jam, honey or cream, or opt for something a little more filling like our New Forest breakfast served with all the traditional English breakfast trimmings – Just the job on a cold winter’s morning. If you’re celebrating a special occasion or just fancy something extra special, then we have Heidsieck Champagne available by the bottle or glass for a sparkling breakfast.
After breakfast get cosy in our lounge and enjoy the pleasures of peace and quiet in front of our roaring fires with a good book and a nice hot cuppa. Simply sit back, relax and feel the stress fly away. All of our hotels have heated swimming pools open from 8am-10pm so take a relaxing dip and feel weightless.
Treat yourself to our delicious afternoon tea featuring a selection of traditional sandwiches and tasty tea fancies accompanied by a freshly home baked scone with clotted cream and sweet strawberry preserve. Choose one of our speciality teas or coffee to complement this indulgent afternoon delight. Or if you’re joining us before Christmas then let us give your afternoon tea a festive twist and swap the traditional treats for some of your Christmas favourites.
Wrap up warm for the afternoon and have a wonder into one of our neighbouring villages where you can find gift shops, cafes and hidden treasures. If you can brave the cold a little longer, put on your wellies or walking boots and simply explore the open heathlands and ancient woodlands, where you’ll spot New Forest ponies graze.
Head back to us, kick of those boots, sink back into the sofas and warm your cockles before joining us in our award-winning restaurants for dinner. Enjoy one of our new seasonal dishes, locally sourced with the best of ingredients and a glass of your favourite tipple.
Then it’s time to appreciate the comforts of your room, enjoy a hot shower, wrap up in a fluffy robe then get into bed and rest up before doing it all again in the morning.
