A historic hotel with two AA Rosette-awarded fine dining, in the heart of the New Forest - includes breakfast, dinner allowance and a choice of rooms

The stunning New Forest in southwest Hampshire has been bewitching visitors for more than 1,000 years - ever since William the Conqueror commandeered it for hunting ‘beasts of the chase’ in 1079.

At its heart, within three acres of manicured grounds, sits the four-star Balmer Lawn Hotel. This 19th-century former hunting lodge’s individually-styled and thoroughly contemporary rooms have previously hosted none other than King George V, Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower throughout its illustrious history.

The VIP treatment continues with the plush Saltus Spa, fine dining at Beresfords restaurant (which has been awarded two AA Rosettes), an on-site gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, plus squash courts. Best of all, the woodland playground of the New Forest National Park is just a few strides from the door.

Good to know

Please note that due to high demand, it is essential to book any spa treatments prior to your stay. All bookings are subject to availability.

Please note that the hotel is unable to meet requests for specific room types or numbers. Rooms are allocated on a category level only. Please contact the hotel directly if you require a twin bedded room.

The outdoor swimming pool opens seasonally from mid-May to mid-September.


Balmer Lawn Hotel’s 54 individually designed and decorated rooms range in style from classic country house to contemporary. Standard rooms are perfect for shorter stays, while Superior rooms enjoy stirring views across the cricket lawn or the forest.

There’s a wonderfully relaxed family atmosphere at Beresfords restaurant, where beautifully-presented, two AA Rosette-awarded cuisine is accompanied by a cultured wine list, all served in a long, wood panelled room full of leather seating and contrasting coloured walls. Headed by Executive Head Chef Chris Wheeldon, this restaurant makes the most of fresh local produce wherever possible, for a friendly yet professional and knowledgeable service.


Treat yourself to a day exploring the extensive leisure facilities at the Saltus Spa, which offers a full range of relaxing treatments and therapies within its distinctly Scandi-inspired, woodland-themed rooms (check out the lovely, gnarled wooden tables and wall decorations) with sweeping views across the landscaped gardens. Facilities include indoor and outdoor pools (the latter of which opens seasonally from mid-May to mid-September), a spa bath, Finnish sauna, air-conditioned gym, and two squash courts.


Balmer Lawn Hotel is situated on the edge of Brockenhurst Village, right in the epicentre of the New Forest National Park. It’s a mere half a mile from Brockenhurst railway station, connecting directly to London Waterloo (90 minutes) and is just eight miles from the M27 (Junction 1) which links with the M3 and M25 motorway networks. Bournemouth and Southampton International airports are 15 and 10 miles away respectively.

With the scenic New Forest National Park on your doorstep, there’s ample opportunity to get your fill of walking, cycling and riding around this breathtaking wildlife haven. The hotel has partnered with Trax Bikes to offer a selection of mountain bikes for thrill-seekers.
