Lime Wood Hotel and Herb House Spa 

Luxurious Country House Hotel and Spa

Set in the heart of the New Forest near Lyndhurst and just 11 miles from Lymington, Lime Wood is fast becoming a first choice for those who demand the very best in accommodation, dining, spa treatments, activities and location. Lime Wood, a boutique country house, has been the subject of substantial recent renovations with no expense spared by the owners in their pursuit of perfection. 

It is laid-back luxury at its best – the perfect secluded hideaway escape, whether you are looking for somewhere to enjoy lunch, dinner or afternoon tea, a special occasion, a relaxing day at the luxurious Herb House spa, a perfect wedding venue and honeymoon destination or a relaxed but refined business meeting.

Hartnett Holder & Co

Lime Wood HHCO Chef Angela Hartnett and Lime Wood’s Luke Holder do the cooking, pulling together both of their much-admired signature styles, to create Hartnett Holder & Co, the hotel’s relaxed and stylish Italian restaurant. Hartnett and Holder’s food comes with the much loved Italian approach to eating - where sharing and provenance is everything. The style is chefs’ home-cooked food, not chefs’ food cooked for restaurants. Both Angela and Luke are famed for their informal, grounded style of cooking and their respect for local produce. Find sample menus here
