This romantic Regency building re-opened as a luxury hotel in 2009 in the New Forest National Park, with dreamy décor by David Collins, a library and two restaurants. Capping off the five-star experience is the three-storey Herb House Spa, equipped with indoor and outdoor pools, a steam room and sauna with forest views. Treatments range from seaweed wraps to Ayurvedic massages and there's also a herb garden on the roof for yoga.
