Chewton Glen captures what people love about the New Forest; the outdoors, the beautiful wildlife, the opportunity for activities, the coastal location and of course local organic produce that tastes divine. We think we’ve captured the essence of its beauty in and around our 130 acre grounds. Whether you’re looking to dine here for a special occasion, cook your own delicious dishes in our cookery school, spoil yourself in our spa or perhaps escape in our idyllic Treehouses, we really are all things to all people!
To kick start what’s been going on in the recent months at CG, you’d be living on Pluto if you haven’t yet heard about our new casual eatery The Kitchen, which launched last month in collaboration with James Martin. We’ve seen some fantastic creations being conjured up in the cookery school, as many guests have been making the most of the warmer weather by dining Al Fresco in the adjoining restaurant. The beautiful greenhouse has attracted a lot of interest to many Al Fresco diners or chefs using the herbs in the cookery classes and our expansive range of cookery courses have been inspiring many guests who are looking to take to the ovens! If you haven’t already, and you’d like to think you could give the competitors a run for their money in Bake Off, start by getting the dough balls rolling here!
Being in at the core of one of the most beautiful and hugely celebrated national parks in the country, our landscape has been flourishing in all its glory. You’d only have to scroll through our social media channels to see the colourful galleries of all of your wonderful images in and around Chewton Glen, flowers & wildlife galore! Our head gardener Darren Venables runs a lovely blog that documents the transformation of the gardens from each season, check out his social media feed to see the bees doing their thing & other lovely wildlife happenings here in the grounds.
It won’t be long until the walk to the beach is seeing a heavier footfall as people set up camp on the beach when the sea is a few degrees warmer, and we’re delighted to see any sandy toes back at the hotel. If it’s a summer with puddles, we’ve got an abundance of wellies for splashing so there’s no excuse to hide away even if the deluxe bedrooms are calling your name.
If you can’t wait to tuck up for the night, many of our rooms have recently been infused with some beautiful blush and copper tones, picking up on an eclectic mix of interior trends whilst remaining loyal to Chewton Glen’s unique character. Every single one of our 58 adobes within the house are completely unique making it feel extra special and exclusive for you during your stay.
With unique experiences in mind, exploring over 40 cookery classes and spending the day in our new school will be amongst the top unique days out, also being a great gift idea too! If you know of any foodies, or you’d like to get up to scratch with the skillet, The Kitchen is the perfect place to be inspired by a huge variety of culinary adventures. Your day will start with a coffee and home baked pastries before you take a sneak peek at what’s growing in the greenhouse. Perhaps you might like to stroll through the garden into the cookery school and settle into the workstation that is exclusively yours for the day. Spend time seated around the Chef Tutor’s station, where you will learn new skills before creating your own masterpiece under the watchful eye of the Chef. Don’t dread cleaning up the cooking debris, take home your creations and a new apron and leave the mess behind!
For those who want to do the absolute minimal, The Spa is your perfect place. You’ll have no qualms as to why its award winning, we love the fact people design their time here being as active or as relaxed as they want. For energetic bodies, tennis courts, the dance studio, gymnasium and nine hole golf course will be your forte, followed by the 17m ozone treated pool should give you all the exercise you need. For the ones who want to find some Zen, we have a hydrotherapy spa pool, a nail studio, aromatherapy saunas, crystal steam rooms and twelve individual treatment rooms offering no fewer than 50 different treatments and holistic therapies.
We’d love you to be inspired by all that Chewton Glen has to offer, being the host for your most iconic moments that will be celebrated for years on end.
