New Forest: romantic spa hotels and family holidays Wild horses, idyllic forests, ancient woodland, open moors, heathland and cliff tops with spectacular coastal views are all part of the diverse holiday opportunities that the New Forest has to offer. A part of the UK known for its convenient links to London as well as its timeless beauty, it is also home to excellent food and locally sourced gastronomic delights. From weekend getaways to New Forest weddings, the hotels in this area crystallise everything that the area has to offer. Hospitality is invariably at its highest, food is spectacular and there's always something to do whether you're visiting on a romantic break or a family holiday. For starters, the area is home to one of the shining beacons of the spa world in the form of Chewton Glen, a multi award-winning hotel that not only does unusual accommodation options with flair, in the form of its tree houses, but also epitomises the best of old school service with modern style. Equally, Lime Wood in Lyndhurst has a glorious reputation for its spa, its service as well as its decadent cuisine. It isn't all about five star extravagance however, with so much to explore, a B&B with flair can be the perfect place to rest for the night in between adventures, and for foodies there are few places as highly renowned as The Pig at Brockenhurst with its convivial atmosphere and wellies to borrow so you can explore the great outdoors and work up an appetite in style.
