Careys Manor Hotel & Spa, Brockenhurst, New Forest
Carey's Manor is a friendly spa hotel in Brockenhurst in the heart of the charming New Forest. The old manor part of the hotel is truly grand with buckets of character, while other parts of the hotel have been added to over the years giving a more modern feel. The Sen Spa is a destination in itself, with a Thai team of masseuses that work magic on aching limbs, a hydrotherapy pool and full thermal suite, and innovative new treatments - such as the Alphasphere sound and light treatment. Food is top-notch in the French brasserie Blaireau, the Thai Zen Garden and the main Cambium restaurant.
We love wandering into Brockenhurst and browsing the little art galleries and gift shops - and stopping for a cake at the Bakehouse.
The hotel is in a prime location for enjoying woodland walks in the National Park.
By car: it takes around 30 minutes from Southampton and 2 hours from London. The hotel offers free parking.
By train: Brockenhurst station is a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The journey takes 13 minutes from Southampton and 1 hour 40 minutes from London Waterloo. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
The hotel suits Londoners looking for a weekend in the country with some serious pampering. The spa has a great ambience, with its Thai-style decor, low lighting and hushed atmosphere.
