From elegantly decorated rooms overlooking parkland, to Chewton Glen treehouse suites on stilts in the canopy, Chewton Glen has it covered. Especially when they come with tablets, Bang & Olufsen sound systems and even hair straighteners. The Treehouse Suites take you to another level – literally. Complete with sundecks with sun loungers, hot tubs, under floor heating, wood burning stoves and marble bathrooms, they are dreamy luxury suspended in the woodland canopy.
Fresh from its own kitchen garden and local producers, the food at Chewton Glen has deservedly won many awards. From the orangery setting of the Dining Room with its modern British dishes, to the relaxed open plan The Kitchen, in partnership with James Martin, serving delicious tapas and wood fired pizzas, the emphasis here is on enjoying good food. You can book a day’s lesson in The Kitchen, picking fresh ingredients from the garden to creating some seasonal to be proud of. The Spa has its own comfortable lounge serving healthy snacks in between treatments.
You can’t stay here and not have a treatment at the Spa. One of the very best in the country, with a huge hydrotherapy pool. The indoor pool is ozone-treated, there are aromatherapy saunas and crystal steam rooms – you might find you don’t leave. But don’t forget, the beach is just a short walk away, with its views across to the Needles, and you can wander over the estate to find a quiet spot.
There’s indoor tennis, cycling and golf on the hotel’s own nine hole course, as well as a huge choice of places to visit locally along the coast and in the New Forest.
A hotel with treehouse accommodation doesn’t get more family friendly. They can explore the 130 acre estate, use the pool (at designated times) and there’s a comprehensive kids menu. There’s a kids club with all manner of activities. Babysitting can be arranged.
