At the hotel 

The perfect English escape, this outstanding country house hotel in the New Forest dates back to 1742 and has a cosy, homely character and picturesque gardens. Staff offer excellent customer care and personal service.

A country house hotel with food at its heart, The Montagu Arms offers world class service and 3 AA rosette dining set in the New Forest.

Home to the award-winning Terrace Restaurant that showcases the rich larder of forest, coast and country, The Montagu Arms boasts free parking and leafy gardens.

Access to SenSpa health club’s facilities at the nearby sister hotel, Careys Manor, is included in the rate.

AccomModation

Opulent, comfortable surroundings with sink-into sofas inside and glorious, fragrant gardens outside, The Montagu Arms is a quintessentially English country house experience – an escape to a tranquil corner of England where time moves more slowly.

It’s the little touches that make it so special. Arrive to a bespoke scent: a woody, smoky fragrance that reflects the oak panelling and polished herringbone parquet flooring. Flowers placed in your room every day, and freshly-brewed tea or coffee brought to you with our compliments. Scented goodies from The White Company, and fluffy bathrobes for every guest.

In the main house, 22 sumptuous bedrooms and suites combine comfort with sophistication; creating the perfect space in which to unwind. Some have glamorous four-poster beds, others have traditional wood paneling and large lead-lined windows with views of the beautiful gardens.

In the Gertrude Jekyll-inspired grounds, two new Hay Loft suites have been created in a barn dating back to the 1820s. With interior design drawn from the British countryside, the luxury duplex suites feature free-standing baths, walk-in drench showers, Nespresso coffee machines, and a complimentary decanter of seasonal gin. What more could you ask for?

Dining

The award-winning Terrace restaurant in Hampshire is the jewel in the country house crown, with the New Forest larder for ingredients that come together to create extraordinary culinary magic.

At Monty's Inn, sample delicious heritage cooking and classic English favourites, including homemade scotch eggs, game pies and British cheese ploughman’s.

The pub grows its own fruit and vegetables in the kitchen garden, as well as using many local suppliers - pork from Pondhead farm in Lyndhurst; real ales from Ringwood brewery; local gin from Lymington; beef from Alderstone Farm near Romsey; eggs from the pub's own chickens and apples from an orchard in Pennington.
