A magical, highly accessible region of ancient woodland, open heathland and postcard-perfect traditional English villages.
Recommended place to stay:
Rhinefield House Hotel
Brockenhurst, Hampshire, United Kingdom (UK)|www.handpickedhotels.co.uk|
Official star rating:
A Tudor-Gothic mansion surrounded by ornamental ponds and elegantly manicured gardens, the Rhinefield is the perfect choice for those seeking a classic country house experience.
Bedrooms can feel a touch corporate, but are super-comfy, with Hypnos mattresses and air-conditioning (rare in such a period property).
This is the kind of hotel where you can leave the car for your whole stay; there are miles of walks from the hotel door, an indoor pool and two upscale restaurants.
Don’t miss the chance to peek into the Alhambra room – an extraordinary, jewelled re-creation of the Alhambra palace – originally designed by the owner as a smoking room for her husband, now a private dining room.
The hotel is three miles outside Brockenhurst, accessed in one direction along the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive, famous for the giant redwood trees that line the road.
The hotel is an absolute oasis within the busy Forest, tucked away in its own 40 acres of grounds. Even in the height of summer it feels peaceful and removed from the hubbub.
