A boutique, luxury country house in Hampshire...
Set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, Lime Wood hotel is only 1.5 miles from the small town of Lyndhurst and just an hour and a half drive from London.
Laid-back luxury at its best, the hotel offers accommodation in 33 superb rooms, including amazing suites, lodges and cabins overlooking the forest.
Chef Angela Hartnett and Lime Wood’s Luke Holder do the cooking, pulling together both of their much admired signature styles, to create Hartnett Holder & Co, the hotel’s relaxed and stylish Italian restaurant. Hartnett and Holder’s food comes with the much loved Italian approach to eating - where sharing and provenance is everything. The style is chefs’ home-cooked food not chefs’ food cooked for restaurants. Both Angela and Luke are famed for their informal, grounded style of cooking and their respect for local produce.
Designed over three levels, Lime Wood’s Herb House Spa has a massive Sauna and indoor Hydro Pool with stunning forest views, a Mud House, a steaming outdoor Hot Pool, eight spacious single treatment rooms and two magnificent double treatment rooms.
If that’s not enough there’s a state of the art rooftop gym with the very latest Technogym equipment, a 16 metre ozone treated indoor lap pool with glass doors overlooking the garden and a workout studio offering an extensive range of fitness classes. Herb House Spa is a spa dedicated to natural well-being, inspired by its forest surroundings, that instils a sense of calm, well-being and serenity – a serious chilling retreat.
