A historic spa hotel with two AA Rosette-awarded fine dining in the heart of the New Forest – includes breakfast, dinner allowance and wellness perks

England's stunning New Forest, in southwest Hampshire, has been bewitching visitors for nearly 1,000 years – ever since William the Conqueror commandeered it for hunting "beasts of the chase" in 1079.

Within three acres of manicured grounds sits the four-star Balmer Lawn Hotel. This 19th-century former hunting lodge  boasts individually styled, thoroughly contemporary rooms, which have previously hosted none other than King George V, Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower during the property's illustrious history.

The VIP treatment continues today, with the plush Saltus Spa, fine dining at Beresford’s restaurant, an on-site gym, an indoor swimming pool, plus tennis and squash courts. Best of all, the woodland playground of the New Forest National Park is just a few strides from the door.
