New Forest: romantic spa hotels and family holidays

.

. 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.
