NEW PARK MANOR, New Forest, Hampshire


The history of New Park is as old as the forest itself. Roman coins found on the site were already in use at the time of William the Conqueror who, in 1070, made the forest a royal hunting preserve. His son William Rufus, who followed him onto the throne, is thought to have hunted from New Park.
In 1666, on his return from exile in France, Charles II made New Park his favourite hunting lodge, and later extended the grounds. The acorns and oak-leaf patterns on doors, original furniture and fireplaces in New Park Manor commemorate the oak tree in which he hid from Cromwell’s men, and his Royal coat of arms is displayed prominently above the fireplace in the oak-panelled restaurant. Charles II was the last king to hunt in the New Forest.


A country house hotel since 1970, New Park Manor is one of only very few which are set in the heart of the New Forest. Surrounded by gardens and its own deer park, it allows sightings of deer, New Forest ponies, foxes and birdlife from most rooms.


This will be an excellent choice for those who want to truly experience the sights and sounds of this magnificent National Park.
The hotel is licensed to perform civil wedding ceremonies.


The Rufus Lounge, with its log fire, deep leather armchairs, rich, warm colours and sports memorabilia, has the character and atmosphere of a convivial club.

The Polo Bar is strikingly contemporary. The award-winning Stag Restaurant serves imaginative, modern English rustic cuisine – healthy, light food based on seasonal produce, as well as local specialities such as game and venison. Its large windows and French doors ensure good views of the parkland and forest, or you can have your dinner on the terrace if you want to get closer to nature.

Bedrooms are luxurious, with large beds, fine fabrics and Culpeper toiletries. Guests should be aware that the nature of this historic building precludes full-standing shower facilities; instead, each has a hand-held shower attachment on the bath. (Full modern shower facilities are freely available in the Bath House Spa.)

Country Classic and Classic Rooms are located on the top floor in the attic of the Manor and feature sloped ceilings. Long ago, these were servants' rooms; although smaller, they’re cosy for couples and have a great sense of history.

Manor rooms are also in the original part of the Manor, on the first floor. These rooms, however, once accommodated house-guests and are more spacious, with larger windows looking onto the gardens. Again, the style is English country house, with each room decorated individually.

The Barbara Villiers Suite and two of the bedrooms have four-poster beds, leaded windows and original period features.

Forest Rooms are again individually decorated, in a contemporary/classic style that nevertheless reflects the age and history of the manor. These rooms are all in the Forest Wing, where they enjoy the early morning sun and a wonderful outlook across the paddock.

The Bath House Spa has an heated indoor pool with shoulder massage jets, plus panoramic views of the forest and surrounding paddocks where deer and ponies often graze, and an outdoor six-seater hot tub that puts you even closer. Experience showers include a light tropical shower, ice rain or waterfall effect. The Kneipp foot bath has alternate heat and cold cycles, and jets that massage reflexology points on the feet.

There’s also a steam bath, a sauna, a sanarium with less heat and humidity, and a fully equipped gym, where appointments can be booked with a personal trainer.

The Spa’s Juice Bar serves breakfast from 7.30, and freshly prepared dishes - including low-salt and low-calorie options - throughout the day, as well as juices, smoothies and herbal teas.

When The Bath House Spa opened at New Park Manor Hotel in November 2005, the gardens were re-developed. The front garden was given a modern edge, and the atmosphere is heightened in the evenings by mood lighting. The spa has its own garden of aroma-therapeutic plants, many of which are used for spa treatments.
Also in the grounds are a heated pool, a croquet lawn and an equestrian centre and a neighbouring polo ground. There are forest walks and bike trails (pre-book bicycles when you book your stay). Locally available activities include clay-pigeon shooting, archery, horse-riding and golf.
