Chewton Glen

Reposing on the edge of the New Forest, overlooking stunning parkland, sits an elegantly maintained country estate.

One of the few remaining bastions of quintessential English living, Chewton Glen is an idyllic escape for those seeking respite along England’s South Coast. Sandwiched between stunning countryside and the placid seafront and comprised of over 130 acres of parkland, gardens and coastline, this privately owned luxury hotel & award-winning spa prides itself on its exceptional hospitality.

While here, guests can indulge in restorative treatments, captivating views and outdoor excursions, as well as impressive state-of-the-art recreational facilities: including a golf course, tennis courts and the delightfully British croquet lawn. There are plenty of activities to engage: from falconry and archery to duck herding and mountain biking. And with Bournemouth, Christchurch and Southampton a stone’s throw away, there’s plenty more to explore beyond the borders of this charming country house hotel.

Cookery School

Chief among Chewton Glen’s attractions is its acclaimed James Martin cookery school which immerses its students in the joys and pleasure of cooking. Guests get an insight into sustainable food sourcing and get to prepare signature dishes under the tutelage of some of the region’s top chefs. Of course, all this expertise in-house makes Chewton Glen an equally revered destination for fine dining, with its highly-rated Dining Room serving up elevated English and European classics.

As Captain Frederick Marryat, author of the timeless children’s classic ‘The Children of the New Forest, likely found during his many stays here, Chewton Glen is that peaceful home-away that also manages to stir the imagination.
