About Us

Set in the heart of the stunning New Forest National Park, we like to think Lime Wood is laid-back luxury at its best – the perfect secluded hideaway escape! 1.5 miles from the small town of Lyndhurst and just an hour and a half drive from London!

Lime Wood was five exciting years in the making and the results are a rich collaboration of creative talent at its best. The architectural parts were designed by Charles Morris and Ben Pentreath, interiors have been added by David Collins and more recently Martin Brudnizki and Rob Angell.

Chefs Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder do the cooking, pulling together both of their much admired signature styles, to create Hartnett Holder & Co, our relaxed Italian restaurant. At the Herb House Spa you can do yoga on the roof in a herb garden, revive together in double treatment rooms and take in the forest views from the massive sauna.

The ultimate countryside getaway; perfect for weekend breaks, a dash from the city, or an escape from home.

Escape to the Forest!
