Lime Wood
New Forest

A beautifully converted Regency manor house situated in the New Forest National Park, Lime Wood is one of Britain's finest country retreats. This beautiful hotel manages to combine levels of luxury normally found in London with a paired down and laid-back country aesthetic. You can expect elegant rooms complete with four poster beds, a fresh palette of clean whites and creams, open fires and stand-alone bath tubs.

Boutique is a term that gets used all too often, but that's exactly what Lime Wood is. The Herb House spa is heavenly; you'll find a mud house, Roman-style Caldarium, indoor swimming pool and extensive gym with views of the herb garden. Dining is taken pretty seriously here; choose to take afternoon tea in the Library or Drawing Room, eat alongside the chefs at the Kitchen Table, take breakfast in the atmospheric Scullery or enjoy lunch or dinner in Hartnett Holder & Co headed up by Luke Holder and Angela Hartnett.

Only an hour and a half from London, Lime Wood really makes the most of its surroundings there are bikes you can take out for rides, extensive grounds to explore and shooting, sailing and horse riding are all available. Small touches like Hunter wellies and William & Son jackets in the Boot Room make Lime Wood a hotel with a difference. You can even bring your pets!

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
