A comfortable country house hotel in the New Forest – with a fabulous spa thrown in.

Careys Manor Hotel

Lyndhurst Road Brockenhurst Hampshire SO42 7RH 01590 623 551

We say

You couldn't get much more central to the New Forest than by staying in this sumptuous spa hotel located in the heart of the national park, just outside Brockenhurst. The larger, older sister of the excellent Montagu Arms in nearby Beaulieu, many people come here for spa breaks, and we don't blame them – the SenSpa here is as good as it gets – but we also just love the location, which is hard to beat, right on the doorstep of the walks, cycle rides and wildlife that make this part of the country so special.

The rooms – 77 in all – are spacious and comfortable, some with big double doors opening out on to the hotel's gardens. Others – located in the original manor house –are quirkier and more individual, and some of these feature four-poster beds. There is also a self-catering cottage in the grounds. All the rooms are well-equipped and have large en-suite bathrooms, robes and toiletries, free wifi and flatscreen TVs – and of course guests have full access to the large swimming pool and the gym, and can pay a bit extra to enjoy the full array of spa facilities, including the sauna, steam room and hydrotherapy pool (though inclusive spa breaks are available too).

Finally there's the Cambium restaurant, which is one of the best places to eat for miles around – though admittedly quite posh and pretty pricey. If you want something simpler, Le Blaireau is a decent bar and brasserie and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, as does the sublime Zen Garden, where the Thai food is fab. 

They say

Situated in the picturesque village of Brockenhurst, this spectacular Manor House is steeped in 18th century history, surrounded by wildlife and filled with all the indulgent essentials of a relaxing escape from daily life.

We invite you to experience Thailand without the jetlag in our award-winning SenSpa – voted Silver for ‘Tourism Experience of the Year’ at the Beautiful South Awards. Immerse yourself in the warmth of our world class Hydrotherapy facilities, indulge in a luxurious treatment and savour the delights of authentic Thai food in the Zen Garden restaurant.

After a day of exploration there is nothing better than a calming swim in our 14m UV treated swimming pool. All guests staying at Careys Manor Hotel can enjoy complimentary access to the Leisure Club facilities which include the pool, steam and sauna rooms and jacuzzi. 

With plenty of character, luxury and indulgence where better to stay during your forest escape than Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa!

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Our Favourite Spot

For the perfect romantic retreat we recommend booking our Roof Terrace Suite (Room 10). 

For stunning views of the forest we recommend an early drive up the Hincheslea Hill.   

The local area

Perfectly placed in the heart of the New Forest National Park, we invite you to explore and discover this magnificent location. There are plenty of peaceful walking routes close to the hotel or if you’d prefer to travel a little further, we can recommend short drives to seaside towns such as Milford, Lymington and Barton with views of the Solent and the Isle of Wight.

Best local places to eat and drink

Careys Manor is also home to the fun and family friendly French Bistro Le Blaireau and our 3 AA Rosette restaurant, Cambium. Cambium celebrates modern British food inspired by the New Forest.
