Celebrate the Festive Season in the New Forest

Move over tinsel and trifle, bring on truffles and torte! Indulge yourself this Christmas and cosy up by the fire, enjoy all the simple pleasures that will make this festive season the most indulgent, laughter-filled and memorable yet
- and you won't have to lift a finger! 

We may be biased, but Lime Wood really is the ideal party venue, whether it's a family shin-dig, Christmas gathering or annual get-together we love it when people celebrate here. 

Personal, relaxed and the perfect house party getaway; with private dining spaces that can seat from 8 up to 50, celebrate with us and we will take care of the rest!

Our Chefs Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder will do the cooking, pulling together both of their much admired signature styles, to create Hartnett Holder & Co, our relaxed Italian restaurant and bar.

Christmas is after all an excuse, if ever we needed one, to eat, drink & be merry!
