Spa-spangled manor

Setting

New Forest pony-country

Set near the coast in Hampshire, Chewton Glen hotel is a stunning manor, spa, restaurant and country club that perfectly combines old-school elegance of the Jeeves & Wooster era with stylish modern touches and updates. The treehouse suites takes luxury to new heights – the forest canopy, to be specific. And, with a staff-to-guest ratio of two-to-one, it's hard not to feel like royalty at this haven, the only privately owned five-star hotel in the UK.

Our favourite rooms

Request a contemporary room: we love the gorgeous Masterman Ready Suite with its artful combinations of antique and contemporary furniture and the panoramic garden views from the sun terrace. Room 21 – the Poachers Suite – is a refined classic-contemporary master suite with a private study, dressing room, pretty bronze mosaic tiles in the bathroom and slick double walk-in shower, as well as a wall-mounted bathroom TV. Or, take your holiday to new heights in one of the treehouse suites: accessed by a gangplank, the circular Loft Suites seemingly float, high the forest canopy. Admire foliage-framed views of the grounds from your hot tub on the hardwood private deck. These 85–87 sq m circular suites sleep two adults and up to four children in a double bedroom and galleried bunk area. Floor-to-ceiling windows let the light and views flood in, and the carpeted bedroom, wood-burning stove and underfloor heating ensure suites stay cosy. A large, freestanding bath with forest views steals the show in the marble-floored ensuite, and daily breakfast hampers are delivered to your door. Regular shuttles can transport you the 200–400m to and from the main hotel.

With heated pools indoors and out, as well as Europe’s largest hydrotherapy pool in the spa, Chewton Glen is ideal for aquatic lounging. The large ozone-treated indoor pool, with its soft-blue sky-painted ceiling, offers great views of the gardens.

The Spa is just minutes from the seaside and channels the coastal calm. Inside, there’s a 17-metre swimming pool, a hydrotherapy spa pool, cold drench showers, aromatherapy saunas and steam rooms; there’s also an outdoor whirlpool.

You can also book pampering for two in one of the spa’s double treatment rooms.

Activities

Chewton Glen's children's club keeps littles entertained with supervised fun activities – including painting, puzzles, story-time, toys, games and more – in the mornings and afternoons, every weekend and during the school holidays. Pre-booking is essential since sessions fill up quickly. Family-friendly activities abound; take a walk (or a pony trek) around the New Forest or make your way to the nearby seaside, for a spot of splashing in the surf and picnics on the beach. There's also an onsite outdoor play area and a Bug Hotel. Nature-loving littles may also enjoy nearby Marwell Zoo or the New Forest Otter, Owl and Wildlife Conservation Park.

Children are welcome into the indoor pool every day from 9am to 10.30am and from 4pm to 5.30pm. Families are also welcome to use the heated outdoor pool all day, from March through October.

Food and Drink

Top Table

A private dining table in the Wine Room; a lime-green horseshoe banquette in Oak End; or a window seat in the Summer House conservatory, so you can marvel at the extensive manicured gardens and revel in a New Forest sunset.

Dress Code

Gents in jackets; ladies in lace.

Hotel restaurant

Chewton's gorgeously grown-up five-roomed gastrodome (aka the Dining Room) has a cosmopolitan menu serving guests whatever, whenever; whether you fancy a casual brunch or five-course, wine-matched tasting menu, it's all seasonally themed and skilfully produced by chef Luke Matthews and his brigade. For informal, à la carte dining, make your way over to the open-plan Kitchen, where you can watch the chefs at work creating wood-fired pizzas, gourmet burgers, superfood salads and more. 

Hotel bar

A burgundy-walled, leather-armchaired, gentleman’s club of a hidey-hole, the hotel’s bar is the definitive brandy-and-cigars den (except it’s non-smoking these days; just the brandy, then).

Last orders

Last orders in Tinkers are 10pm. The bar offers food, drink and good cheer until there’s no one left to enjoy them.

Room service

Meals, snacks and drinks are available to enjoy in-room 24 hours a day.

Anonymous review

By Helen McNutt, Five-star fan

OK, I admit it – I didn’t even try not to fall in love. Gliding down Chewton Glen’s luxuriously long drive we caught our first heady glimpse across the beautiful lawns and knew we were in for a seriously good time. That mixture of five-star elegance, country-club atmosphere and edge-of-the-New-Forest setting was a formula I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist. Even so, I don’t think either of us expected to fall quite so head over heels with this boutique hotel in Hampshire.

Our weekend hideaway – an inviting amalgam of courtyard, flowers and warm brickwork –doesn’t seem overly imposing from the main entrance. But the second we step inside, we realise we are somewhere very special.

Chewton Glen is an 18th-century beautiful beast – and, with its refined air and formal elegance, it can’t help but exude that very particular type of Englishness that makes you wish you knew all the words to the national anthem. But this place is far too well bred to be stuffy or pretentious.

Post-check in, we pop along to the bar while we wait for our room. It’s very red, very plush and very clubby – with many ancient editions lining the wall (Captain Marryat wrote The Children of the New Forest while staying here). Such masculine, old school surroundings automatically make you feel that a stiff drink is in order. Gazing over the pristine lawn, we promise ourselves that as soon as we’ve dealt with our vodka tonics, we’ll have a game of croquet. The trouble is, the seemingly innocent squishy sofa swallows us up, and the damn thing holds us captive for two hours. There we are forced to remain; swapping stories about losing our virginity (I can’t believe that hasn’t come up until now), drinking more V&Ts to stave off dehydration – and very definitely not playing croquet.

The decor at this Hampshire boutique hotel may be traditional, but it’s freshened up with contemporary lighting, big, bold flower displays and acid-coloured cushions resting on delightfully upholstered armchairs (an effect so potent that one starts saying things like ‘delightfully upholstered armchairs’ quite unselfconsciously).

The front-of-house staff are unfailingly polite, but also rather quirky; as I swap my stilettos for flats, an older porter nods in sympathy and sighs that it is, indeed, hard work being stylish. When we finally get to our room, we question the wisdom of spending so much time out of it. It’s stunning. The bed is bigger than my whole bedroom at home, the secluded balcony has the most incredible view, the carpet is toe-sinkingly thick, and there’s a whole wall of mirrored wardrobes. This is pure, understated sumptuousness.

If this hotel is English with a capital E, then our bathroom is pure Americana. Bad-ass-MTV-pimp-my-crib-hip-hop-sextastic Americana, to be precise. It’s huge: nearly as big as the bedroom. There’s a party-sized shower, a TV in the wall, and a glut of Molton Brown goodies. Accompanied by a bottle of champagne, we watch music videos from our huge tub until both types of bubbles have disappeared.

We return from our naked state back into clothes, just in time for dinner. There’s something unnervingly sexy about country hotels of a certain standard who still request (politely) jackets for dinner. Mr Smith obliges, and so to the restaurant we head. Supper is worth dressing up for. On arrival we’re given the most delicious amuse-bouche (plump for the avocado morsels) before I polish off a succulent asparagus and artichoke salad, followed by pumpkin tortellini. Mr Smith is in some kind of lamb heaven; it’s so mouth-wateringly rich that he tries to tempt me out of 20 years of vegetarianism. I nearly give in. This is the type of dinner that makes you smile when you think about it afterwards.

At breakfast the next day, an old man at the table behind us booms away in the kind of voice that suggests he was once a ‘somebody’ in the army. He resolutely declares ‘this is the best toast I’ve ever had’. Quite. Many lazy hours later we take the woodland walk down through the hotel grounds to the beach, where we are confronted with another particularly English combination: sunburnt skin, too-tight swimwear and a retro ice-cream van.

We take our sticky mint choc-chip hands for a walk along the front to Barton on Sea and soon stumble across a cliff-top restaurant called the Beachcomber. They may not request a dinner jacket, but they do provide satisfying chip butties and chardonnay. Returning to the beach, we find a quiet spot and drift into a sea-induced slumber on the pebbles, joining the ranks of the slightly sunburnt ourselves.

This weekend has turned into a total food and wine fest – and indeed later that evening back at Chewton Glen, we find Richard, aka 'The Best Barman In The World'. (He’s got to be happy with that title, surely?) Discreet, passionate about his job and great company, he regales us with tales of old regulars, such as the male guest who lent a fledgling businesswoman four grand in return for half a per cent of her profits. She turned out to be the late Anita Roddick. He became rich enough to live six months of the year at Chewton Glen.

We couldn’t bolt from our boutique bolthole without pampering our souls at the spa. We laze around in the outdoor pool, loving the fact that waiters will hand you a glass of whatever you fancy without you even leaving the water. There’s an indoor pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi, a hydrotherapy spa pool with a high-tech make-any-kind-of-bubbles machine, saunas, steam rooms – and an exhaustive range of health and beauty treatments should you feel the need. I end up pleading with Mr Smith to get very rich, very quickly so that I can become a professional spa wife.

The hands on the clock do something peculiar at Chewton Glen: time disappears way too quickly. Tragically, it is soon time to leave – but not before every member of staff we pass has made sure we’ve had a lovely time. Gloriously romantic, this is a hotel I have been deprived of until this weekend. Now all I have to do is persuade Mr Smith to re-pack his dinner jacket and make a return visit soon.

The dedicated, thoughtful and friendly staff who work hard to make staying at Chewton Glen a lovely experience.

Don’t expect

The room you are allocated to be appropriate to your stay. Make sure you're your happy as some rooms are too small for two people if you are staying for more than one night. Also you may find the overflow dining room rather chilly near the windows.

I have been to Chewton Glen many times and it never disappoints. We received a nice welcome on arrival and the staff were attentive and helpful throughout our stay. The suite had a big sitting area and a large bathroom and separate toilet. It had two balconies – we had a great view of the fireworks but otherwise it was just a bit too cold to sit outside for long. The spa is very good with large indoor pool as well as separate spa pool. The hotel has a nice bar and several lounge areas with plenty of healthy options on the bar menu although on this occasion I had the club sandwich which had a very big portion of French fries in the middle and it was far too big for me to finish. It was delicious though. The gym is well equipped and usually very quiet although on the morning I went in, there were four others there at the same time as me. Breakfast is always very good – lots of choice from the buffet and a nice selection of hot food to order. I like the walk down to the beach which is approx 15 mins gentle downhill stroll - its a very pleasant walk and a good way to burn off some of our breakfast.

We loved the hotel and its surroundings; the walk down to the beach is wonderful, looking out on to the grounds at breakfast is very relaxing. The pool is excellent, with great changing facilities. The Chewton Glen shop is well-stocked and open throughout the day. The facility of 9-hole golf, croquet and putting was very welcome.

Don’t expect

Don't expect startlingly attentive service. There were several times when the service in the restaurant and bar was surprisingly lacking. Zipped beds in the suite came as quite a surprise - why a hotel such as Chewton Glen condones two beds zipped together in an expensive suite is beyond comprehension. Dont expect superb food. Whilst the food was quite acceptable, the myriad of flavours in one dish marred the overall taste. The tasting menu was disappointing and far too expensive for what it was, better to stick to the a la carte.

Pretty much everything about the hotel. Our room was wonderful – spacious and light, with a good view of the gardens. The breakfasts were great, with a wide range at the buffet, plus cooked breakfasts to order (go for the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a side of smashed avocado!). The facilities were fantastic too: we used the fully kitted-out gym, the indoor pool (go before 9am to avoid the children if you're after serious laps), the exercise classes, and the spa for some pampering massages and facials. The grounds are really pretty to walk around, with lovely kitchen gardens, and the beach is a 10-minute walk away through some lovely woodland. Staff were great, very efficient and only too willing to help (through service at breakfast could be a little chaotic at times) and there's a beautiful shop in the hotel too, where you're likely to spend a bit too much money on things you don't need but that are too beautiful to resist! We were on a little babymoon and so the hotel left a lovely touch of a balloon, card and chocolates in the room for us. The manager was also aware that we don't drink so rang our room especially after we'd checked in to ask if he could offer us something else in place of alcohol. Every day complementary fruit juice, bottled water and small snacks were also topped up in the room. Do try to have dinner in the dining room. The food we had there was great.

Don’t expect

A vast room service menu, especially at night where it's a selection of sandwiches, no hot food. Might have been nice to have pizzas/burgers/pasta on the nighttime menu. Also don't expect a child-free zone if you're on a romantic break. There were a lot of families with young children during our stay, which we were fine with, but others might not be.

Lovely hotel – this was our sixth visit in the past 9 months. Staff are friendly, attentive and helpful. We were lucky to be upgraded on this trip from a Junior Suite to a Treehouse Loft Suite. The treehouses are across the road from the main hotel and you feel miles from anywhere as the view from the windows is of tree canopy. The treehouse suites have a large living room and main bedroom with kitchenette, big bedroom, additional toilet and upstairs bedroom (intended for children). The bed is very comfortable and the large bathroom has a drench shower, free standing bath and two basins. It is also stocked with wonderful smelling Ren toiletries. the kitchenette was well stocked with various teas, a coffee machine, toaster, various snacks and milk and juice in the fridge. In the morning a delicious breakfast hamper was delivered. I can't wait to go again! Lovely walk down to the beach from the hotel. there is an easy path to follow and it only takes about 15 mins to get to the beach.

An experience unlike any other. I booked the treehouse suite for my husband's 30th birthday as a surprise. We were lucky enough to be there in March for the second snowfall the treehouses had seen since they were built. We felt like we were living in a snow globe! We only stayed one night, but because the suite was not booked the following day, we were provided with a late check-out, which gave us the opportunity to have a relaxing breakfast in the room and enjoy spa treatments afterwards. The outdoor jacuzzi is very private and adds to the spectacular layout of the suite. We have never stayed in a hotel which made us feel so at home. Would recommend this experience for a special occasion or a weekend getaway in the UK.
