Vera’s Venue de Jour: Chewton Glen

Our venue de jour is Chewton Glen…

Set within 130 acres of countryside, adjacent to the New Forest and considered an English original, Chewton Glen is a 5 star country house hotel that represents quintessential understated luxury. Paying accolade to this south coast gem, the hotel was voted as ‘One of the Top Hotels in the World’ and ‘Best Hotel in the British Isles’ – at the 2010 and 2011 Condé Nast Traveller annual readers awards.

From the moment guests arrive, superlative yet relaxed service reigns supreme. Cosy lounges with log fires and a bar to rival the best gentleman’s club will ensure that guests feel quite the Lord or Lady yet surprisingly relaxed and at home. Hunter wellies are on standby for those that want to explore the countryside and once tired from a walk in the woods, the award winning spa is waiting to ease and relax tired muscles. For the main event, dinner is served in the three AA rosette restaurant Vetiver, offering a superb fine dining experience and wine cellar that is unrivalled in this region.

Each of the fifty eight rooms are with the latest mod cons including flat screen TV’s, DVD & CD players, IPod docking stations and fabulous bathrooms TV’s to watch whilst enjoying a soak in the oversized baths.
