New Forest Estate Hampshire

New Forest Estate The South Coast

Two hours from London…

Now, this truly is a stunning twelve-bedroom manor house and one of our finest country houses to rent. It sits in a fifteen-acre private estate in the beautiful New Forest National Park and like the famous forest itself, the property is steeped in history. Built in the Queen Anne style in 1760, it has had some notable owners including Lady Bingham, wife of Sir George Bingham who guarded the deposed Napoleon, no less! More recently, the house has been extensively restored to provide first class style, comfort and facilities, whether you are coming for a family holiday, a special celebration or a product promotion.  The layout of the house – and the cottage and coach house also on the estate – provides lots of flexibility facilitating large convivial gatherings or relaxing quiet retreats, with plenty to keep everyone entertained throughout your stay.

Guest reviews

What a spot for a very global team meeting. We all loved it. They are still all talking about it and agreed it was the best team meeting they have ever had. Due in no small part to the location.

Richard, London

Stunning house and grounds. All 19 of us were in awe and wouldn’t hesitate to go back. The amount of detail the owners have put in to this property in every room is amazing and no shortage of activities to do either. Thank you very much for a wonderful weekend.

Karen, Weybridge

Amazing place, everything down to a fine detail. Kitchen well equipped. Fantastic books in all rooms. Love the layout of all bedrooms with en-suites all different and unique from each other. Beautiful grounds. Lots of equipment to keep us occupied: croquet set, lego for our grandson, Would DEFINITELY come again!

Inside, the house mixes elegance and style with luxurious comfort and relaxation. We love the warm welcoming rooms where you can just sit back and relax and the cosy little corners for a bit of me-time. There is a wonderful sun-filled breakfast room; two living rooms with, of course, log fires; a truly elegant dining room that seats twenty four; a well equipped kitchen for those of you who want to cater for yourselves; a charming study; plus a cinema room and a games room so you need never be bored! By the way, we have a choice of local catering options, so if you don’t want to spend your time away slaving over a hot stove, we can arrange everything from breakfast to dinner with buffets and waitressed service, to hog roasts or mobile pizza ovens. We’ll be happy to talk through your options. And historic doesn’t meet archaic in our country houses to rent! Apart for the modern kitchen appliances, there is high-speed broadband and WIFI throughout the house; conferencing facilities with AV facilities and VOIP telephony; and digital entertainment.

And two beautiful cottages…

As well as the big house itself, there are two other properties: Magnolia Cottage and The Coach House, all within the 15 acre private grounds (extra costs apply). The Coach House evokes thoughts of yesteryear with its cobbled forecourt, walled garden and homely feel. It sleeps up to eight guests. And Magnolia Cottage is a snug hideaway that sleeps four. Both have private gardens and can be hired separately or as part of the main house, giving you total flexibility. Of course, if you’re after total privacy, the best thing to do is book all three properties together, which will allow for a total of 36 guests.

Private Chef

Whether it's a one-off special celebratory meal, or breakfast, lunch and dinner during your entire stay, we can recommend a highly trained chef to come to cook and serve from your kitchen at New Forest Estate. A wonderful way to make your experience extra special.
