Lime Wood Hotel

Lime Wood HotelLime Wood, a boutique country house hotel, is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, 1.5 miles from the small town of Lyndhurst and just an hour and a half drive from London.

We like to think of ourselves as a luxury country house hotel with a difference.

We've used Lime Wood's classical structure as the basis of our design but we've lovingly renovated it, keeping the spirit of its past, taking inspiration from its extraordinarily beautiful surroundings and adding the odd contemporary twist to bring it to life.

We don't do average at Lime Wood. That's why at our spa you can do yoga on the roof in a herb garden, revive together in double treatment rooms and take in the forest views from the massive sauna.

The Pig in the Forest

The Pig in the ForestTHE PIG in The New Forest is all about the walled garden.

Everything is driven by the gardener, forager and chef - they grow and find the food, the chef then creates the 25-mile menu (what we can't get from our garden and grounds is sourced locally).

This immediacy from garden to plate is THE PIG's trademark!
