New Forest,SO42 7ZL ,Beaulieu
The picturesque village of Beaulieu nestles quietly in the depths of the New Forest, yet it would be hard to find a more convenient base for exploring the local area than the Montagu Arms. With a history dating back to 1742, the traditional English character of this country house hotel is reflected through the old brick fireplace and its roaring open fires, the large cosy sofas, beautiful oak panelling and picturesque gardens, all of which combine to create a truly homely atmosphere. Dining at 3 AA Rostte-winning Terrace Restaurant is what makes a stay at the Montagu Arms a truly memorable experience. The restaurant pays homage to both tradition and innovation, offering a variety of delectable dishes in a distinctively sophisticated oak paneled setting with views over the picturesque garden. Head Chef Matthew Tomkinson uses only the finest quality seasonal ingredients which are, as far as possible, local, free-range and organic. The Terrace is also well known for its extensive wine list including organic, un-oaked and prestigious wines and champagnes. For a less formal dining experience, Monty's Brasserie and Bar offers a laid back and cosy atmosphere. For extra pampering, guests at The Montagu Arms have preferential rates at the state of the art Thai Sen Spa, located just six miles across the beautiful New Forest at sister hotel Careys Manor. SenSpa offers a hydrotherapy pool, herbal sauna, crystal steam room, ice room, experience showers, relaxation rooms, with a full range of treatments including facials, massage, body scrubs, body wraps and more.
