A sophisticated New Forest country retreat with a three AA Rosette-awarded restaurant, including breakfast, spa and dining discounts, plus a suite option and more

If you're seeking a rural New Forest retreat brimming with sophistication and tastebud-tantalising experiences, look no further than The Montagu Arms Hotel. Behind its charming ivy-clad, red-brick facade, this Beaulieu base hides stellar facilities to please even the most discerning guest - and with a seasoned history that dates back to 1742, as well as a host of awards and recommendations to its name, it is sure not to disappoint.

Rated by
The Telegraph as part of the New Forest's top 10 hotels, and awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, The Montagu Arms brings country-themed tradition and sophistication to its accommodation, filling its rooms and suites with period features, ornate four-poster beds, richly patterned fabrics and plush furnishings. Just as characterful and perhaps more tempting yet, is its three AA Rosette-awarded and largely recommended restaurant, where tasting menus plus a la carte lunch and dinner options beautifully combine local and seasonal produce with elegance and flair.

With a pretty river streaming through it, Beaulieu makes a lovely, quiet location for taking in some seriously fresh country air. History lovers can explore the 13th-century Palace House museum, originally part of Beaulieu Abbey, while automobile enthusiasts should make a beeline for the National Motor Museum. Of course, you've all the sights and sounds of Hampshire's New Forest on your doorstep, should you be in the mood for a long walk or bike through vast unspoilt landscapes.

Good to know

This property's sister hotel, Careys Manor, houses the stunning and well-equipped SenSpa - ideal for those seeking a chance to further relax with a lap in the indoor pool and a session in the Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. As a guest at The Montagu Arms Hotel, you'll have access to these facilities. A spa menu of facials, massages and wraps using organic products is available at preferential rates.

Please note, you should pre-book dinner in the restaurant in order to avoid disappointment.
