Quintessential English stay at a coastal boutique hotel in the historic sailing town of Lymington, with includes breakfast and optional dinner

Enjoy the best of both worlds with a stay in charming Lymington – a historic Regency town that conveniently lies between the UK's southern coastline and the stunning New Forest. Set along an attractive Georgian street that leads all the way down to the Quay, over the years Stanwell House has seen itself as a private residence, a finishing school, and since 1945, an inviting boutique hotel.

Providing a warm welcome to staying guests and one-off visitors alike, it makes a great base from which to explore Lymington and its captivating surroundings. Enjoy an all-day menu within the glass-covered courtyard, dine on some of the region's finest produce at the newly refurbished two AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant, Etain. Alternatively, choose from the extensive British Tapas menu in the Burcher & Co restaurant, whilst Drydock bar is on hand for all your cocktail needs. You'll bed down in one of the stylish guestrooms, which are divided between the hotel's original building and a newer extension.
