Sometimes you just want to get away from all of life’s commotion.

The New Forest offers plenty of relaxing and romantic getaway opportunities for you to share with your loved one ranging from hotels and spas to intimate restaurants perfect for an evening or weekend away.

A popular choice amongst many is the Chewton Glen Hotel and its luxury health spa. Voted “In the top ten of UK Hotel Spas”, this indulgent retreat is a place where visitors can experience holistic health programmes in the confines of an intricately constructed interior complete with atmospheric mood lighting and impressive artisanal stone pillars with attractive symmetrical design.

The hotel attracts many visitors looking for a romantic getaway and this is manifested in the newly built treehouses. These structures (located away from the main building itself) provide the ultimate getaway experience: with their natural materials and elevated construction, the treehouses blend perfectly into the scenery, secluded in and harmonising with the scenery.

The treehouses feature relaxing bedroom and lounge areas, in addition to a kitchenette and outdoor seating which provides everything you need for your retreat.

Another popular choice is a romantic dining break at Careys Manor Hotel & Senspa, with three delicious restaurants to choose from you will be truly spoilt for choice! The break also includes theuse of the award winning SenSpa facilities.

The forest itself is the ideal setting for those wanting a romantic escape with a multitude of luscious flora and mysterious trails for you to follow and discover. At over 200 square miles, the forest provides a never ending sandbox for people to explore.

There are numerous villages to find: with Lyndhurst, Beaulieu and Burley to name but a few. All have their own history to learn, culture to experience and food to taste. Travelling by car is of course an option or, for a more intimate experience, why not rent a bike and feel the wind in your hair?
