Whether it is for Sunday Lunch, a group meal, or a private dinner - Limewood is the place to go. Offering luxury, fantastic food, great service and a beautiful, unrivalled location, Limewood is somewhere we regularly frequent. Over Christmas it was decorated like a grotto (tasteful and clean) and during the summer months, the grounds offer al fresco dining in...

We are here for 5 nights in a forest hideaway suite (crescent 5) and now it's almost time to leave, I felt compelled to leave a review of this luxurious yet unpretentious hotel. I asked if they could make me a small cake as a surprise for my other half for our anniversary and we arrived to the most gorgeous...

I have a food intolerance. We advised the restaurant about it when we booked. They, of course, said, "no problem, all our food is freshly prepared". When we ordered, I reminded them about my food intolerance, so the waiter went to see the chef, who annotated a menu to let me know which dishes I could tolerate. Essentially: one starter,...

I chose here for my daughter to celebrate her birthday, It was like stepping out of the world for 36 hours and stopping! Loved the hotel and interiors and the staff were excellent. Our room was a spacious and had a free standing bath and walk in shower with a lovely view over the back gardens. The spa was superb...

We visited a couple of days after booking at this special hotel and had two bonuses. Firstly the weather with full 15c March sunshine and secondly discovering we'd been upgraded to a splendid room in the coach house overlooking the woods.

The appeal of the Lime Wood is immediate as you approach the entrance - even before you get inside....... The staff are skilful in making you feel special and at the prices charged any visit here should rightly be seen as a special occasion. The high tea was our highlight with exquisite food lovingly prepared by a top gastronomic team...

Son and his family staying at this hotel, we visited them for his birthday. Armed with a home made chocolate roulette, we were welcomed by Mehdi, a Tunisian, who helped with the platter the cake was put on. I explained the reason for our visit, he was so welcoming, took the platter and said it would be much better cake,...

I visited here last week, my husband had been given a voucher to the cookery school to learn how to cook steak. I offered to drive him, I was not going to pass up the opportunity for a visit to snoop around. I spent several very pleasant hours in the bar area, eating the rather unusual mushroom brioche with marmite!...

Wonderful evening at Lime Wood eating in the Scullery, with first classservice from the moment we arrived, a wonderful reception with outstanding fizz and canapés followed by an exceptional dinner, fabulous flavours, delicious wines and a fresh light approach to the cooking. All ingredients were top notch, service at dinner immaculate, generous wine and very complimentary food/wine pairing. Highly recommended...

We did not stay....we just had lunch. It was lovely. A great treat that one can afford as the prices were not huge for lunch. BUT, a word of warning when you drive up to the place. Be VERY CAREFUL As you drive over the strips of wood secured across the drive to stop speeding. Great idea,....very rustic. The problem...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lime Wood, a boutique country house hotel in England, 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 with a fresh approach, reviving its architecture and grounds. We've kept the spirit of its past, taken inspiration from its extraordinarily beautiful surroundings and added the odd contemporary twist to bring it to life. The food is by Luke Holder and Angela Hartnett. With its proximity to London, our New Forest boutique hotel really is the ultimate countryside getaway; perfect for weekend breaks, a dash from the city, or an escape from home; whatever your motivations, we can't wait to show you around. ... more   less
