Limewood is stunning British Country House hotel which is perfect for that luxury European escape.
In the Main House there are a variety of rooms from the cosy Eaves up to the Forest Suites. The three luxury duplex Forest Suites are truly special with galleried sleeping zones and an area to chill out below. You will experience the perfect balance of space in each of the rooms and suites. There are also Forest Suites on just 1 level.
All of the rooms in the Main House have beautiful bathrooms with lots of white marble, large plate-sized shower heads, big fluffy white towels and Bamford toiletries.
You’ll find the Pavilions in the grounds, overlooking the Main House and the garden. The luxury Pavilions almost melt into the New Forest surroundings, the ultimate definition of hideaway chic.
PAVILION 1 (FOREST LODGE):
Pavilion 1 is a standalone Lodge which you enter through a Bath Stone columned archway into a stone paved lounge area. Here, French doors lead onto a patio with views of the New Forest, a bit like your own country cottage. These luxury Pavilions are cosy but spacious, chic but romantic and it may be hard to leave.
If you go through the Bath Stone arched column on the left you’ll find yourself in a hallway with a curved staircase leading to the bedroom on the first floor. There’s a four poster bed, high vaulted ceilings, oak wooden floor, roll top bath, open fire and large bay window overlooking views of the forest. Pavilion 2 & 3 are adjoining.
Pavilion 3 is on the ground floor, you enter through a Bath Stone arched column on the right hand side into a bedroom and seating area. There’s a writing table (which could also be used for dining), heated stone floor, bathroom with walk-in shower and a bay window which leads out onto the forest via a terrace. Pavilion 2 & 3 are adjoining.
Crescent is situated next to the Coach House and with direct access into the Forest and backing straight onto the trees; the Crescent Rooms and Suites are particularly peaceful and secluded. The Crescent Rooms are styled in a kind of Franco-Scottish flavour with an added touch of New England and it’s worked really well; crisp, light-filled and chic.

CRESCENT 3 (FOREST LODGE):
Enter into a stone paved lounge area with French doors leading onto a terrace with views of the forest, a bit like your own country cottage. If you don’t feel like joining the hotel’s restaurants, there’s a dining table so you can get that chilled night in feeling and then cosy up by the wood burner. Just as you’d hope for in the best kind of hideaway, the staircase leads to the bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, wood burner, balcony and roll top bath. Downstairs is a single bedroom with a walk in shower bathroom. The Crescent Suite is cosy but spacious, chic yet romantic and it may be hard to leave.
THE COACH HOUSE
Just down the steps from the Main House is The Coach House, another unique building at the country house hotel designed by Charles Morris. The decoration gives a nod to a traditional Arts and Crafts style but there’s also a hint of Italian architectural details in the added Cortile and Loggias. It’s immaculate but fun and quirky too.
The Coach House is made up of interconnecting rooms and suites, making it an ideal option for small groups of friends and family who may like to book the building as a whole.
The Forest Hideaway Suites are laid out over two floors with sitting room, dining room and some even have a cosy wood burner. On the ground floor there is access to a private terrace or balcony and upstairs there’s a bedroom, a bathroom and fantastic views onto the forest.
