Situated in the heart of the New Forest is an old lodge, think Hansel and Gretel. This very cottage is now transformed into a forest hideaway retreat at the much loved Lime Wood, the favoured hotel of those in the know. The cottages promise British luxury and service in its purest form with a dollop of seclusion providing a sanctuary for relaxation and escapism. The two Forest Cottages and the Forest Cabin located in the grounds of Lime Wood, are surrounded by forest and meadows and are perfect hideaways for families or those wanting a little more privacy. Separate from the Hotel but still within easy reach, access to the award winning Herb House Spa and Hartnett Holder & Co, is easy peasy. The two storey Cottage Suites blend into their surroundings. Each is self-contained, with a kitchenette, dining and living area and Lime Wood’s signature snug log fires. The Cottages have an upstairs master bedroom with a four-poster bed, en suite bathroom with freestanding bath and double monsoon shower. Forest Cottage 1 has a downstairs twin bedroom that can be doubled, whereas Forest Cottage 2 has an upstairs bunk bedroom. Both Cottages have an additional shower bathroom and there is the option to interconnect, so you can have the whole cottage sleeping a party of 8! Oak floors, wood cladding and smart design gives a rustic yet grown-up style to the warm and comfortable Cottages. The Forest Cabin is set apart from the cottages and oozes rustic charm. The cosy ground floor Cabin includes a master bedroom with four-poster bed with en suite bathroom, and a bunk bedroom with a separate shower. There’s a multipurpose kitchenette, dining and living area with a log fire to warm cold toes after a bracing walk through the forest. These Cottages, taking inspiration from the forest, use natural materials that are honest to their true environment, creating three heavenly havens that Lime Wood can be proud of.
