Chewton Glen Hotel  New Milton

  • Unfortunately I wasn't able to take photos at this hotel on the Wedding Showcase day, however it is a stunning hotel offering extremely high levels of luxury and service in a beautiful setting, although not within the perambulation of the New Forest - the ponies wont be wandering outside the door here but you are very close to the coast.
  • Banquetting here was truly memorable. Every single need was covered from beautiful flowers to perfectly wrapped little plate side gifts
  • You can include a stay in a luxury Treehouse before you set off on honeymoon
