On the fringes of the New Forest, just minutes from the coast, Chewton Glen is a true English original. With some of England’s most stunning countryside rolling up around the hotel and the calmness of the sea just moments away, Chewton Glen is an idyllic escape for all. Stay over in one of the 72 rooms and suites each suiting every mood and occasion, from Croquet Lawn Rooms which gaze out onto a perfectly manicured lawn from a private terrace, to the largest suite, The Marryat Suite, once the bedroom and lounge of the original 18th century manor house. Touch the skies in the 14 luxury treehouses, including The Yews, the most secluded abode to nestle in the forest, sleeping up to 12 people.
Spoil yourself in the newly transformed elegant spa complete with large swimming pool and hydrotherapy pool, aromatherapy saunas, crystal steam rooms, nail studio, fitness suite, pool bar and sun terrace. Boasting 12 treatment rooms, the new ‘stripped back’ spa menu is the first of its kind in the UK, taking a less is more approach that see’s therapists create fully bespoke treatments. From the typically English to the totally cosmopolitan, Head Chef Simon Addison and his talented brigade create an utterly delicious fine dining menu in The Dining Room, using the fabulous array of local vegetables, fruit, herbs and edible flowers harvested from the Kitchen Gardens. Chewton Glen also has more than 50 working beehives, which provide the estate with its honey. Explore its 130 acres by bike, enjoy endless New Forest and coastal walks, try your hand at golf, croquet and tennis or something more unique such as falconry and foraging. Among its awards are Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence – ‘Best Countryside Hotel 2021’, The Good Hotel Guide’s ‘Editor’s Choice Spas 2021’ and ‘Editor’s Family Hotels 2021’.
