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 - rated by The Telegraph as part of the New Forest's top 10 hotels, and awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. 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.

The individually-designed rooms here are styled with feminine charm, echoing the hotel's sophisticated English country house style. Standard Double rooms come with locally hand-crafted beds and White Company toiletries, while Superior Double rooms are large enough to feature super-king beds and most look out onto the hotel gardens. Opt for a Four Poster room if you're seeking ornate beds and Victorian fireplaces, or go all-out with a Hayloft suite, housed in an 1820s barn within the grounds.

A refined fine dining experience is high on the menu at the three AA Rosette-awarded Terrace Restaurant - a reputed spot offering comfort food mixed with local and seasonal produce. Offering lunch, dinner and Sunday lunch menus, you can also opt for the rather tempting five- or six-course tasting menus paired with delicious wines from the hotel's own extensive wine cellar. Picture the likes of spiced diver-caught Scottish scallops, or slow cooked oxtail, rounded off with a lemon meringue pie and basil sorbet for dessert.


Situated in the village of Beaulieu, in the heart of the New Forest, this hotel is perfect if you're after a more toned-down, nature-enriched and calming country escape. When you aren't out exploring the New Forest's walking trails, seek out Beaulieu's Palace House and National Motor Museum, or take a stroll along the scenic Beaulieu River.
