A luxurious hotel that is brimming with history, New Park Manor is in a prime location in the New Forest, and is ideal for a relaxing break in this fascinating natural landscape. What was once a prominent hunting lodge in the 1600s is now home to luxurious guest accommodation, fine dining and exquisite spa facilities.
Once the favourite hunting lodge of King Charles II, the mansion has enjoyed a rich history and many of the original features can be seen to this day, including fireplaces and furniture. The king’s coat of arms is on display above the fireplace in The Stag restaurant and you will notice oak leaf and acorn patterns throughout the hotel which are symbolic of the great oak tree which hid King Charles from Oliver Cromwell’s men as he made his escape to France in 1651.
New Park Manor Accommodation
The rooms and suites in New Park Manor are styled to reflect the hotel’s vibrant past and to embrace the classic features of the building, such as high ceilings and large sash windows. There are 21 rooms, all styled individually and traditionally with lovely touches such as family suites in the eaves, and spectacular views. This is a family friendly hotel, so many of the rooms provide helpful assistance in the form of extra sleeping facilities, flexibility or interconnecting rooms. Even your four legged family members are made welcome at this hotel, and receive their own welcoming party in the form of Daisy the Whippet.
The award winning Stag restaurant is perfect for enjoying superb local food – venison and wild mushrooms from the forest and seafood from Lymington. Even the greens and herbs are foraged locally, and the kitchen team are often spotted inspecting the garden’s goods, searching for the best ingredients to be served up that very night. A range of menus make the dining at New Park Manor ideal for a number of occasions – formal or informal, small or large groups, special occasions and children are particularly welcomed with their own menus. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the magnificent lounges before relaxing in the restaurant and admiring the views of the New Forest and the hotel’s grounds.
The Bath House Spa at New Park Manor is a glorious affair. Indulge in a range of holistic treatments designed to relax the body at the hands of highly experienced therapists who use the most gentle of natural products or cleanse in the thermal rooms or hydrotherapy and spa pools. There is a fitness suite featuring the latest state of the art equipment with personal TVs on each machine, as well as a 16 metre UV filtered swimming pool with gorgeous views of the New Forest. Take some time out in the juice bar or bask in the sun on roof terraces which make perfect sun traps and are also home to a lovely Canadian outdoor hot tub.
