Privacy. Quality. Style. Space. The magic four ingredients for luxury. It’s all here in spades. Come here for de-frazzling, detoxing and tidying up your body. Go home looking like you’ve spent a great deal more than you will have done!  

Rooms are chic, boutique and very spoily. The pool and spa are glam and Vogue-ready. Every morning, a healthy breakfast is provided. Just pop the dirty stuff in the food lift! 

The garden and lake area is peaceful and well planted. The long beaches at Milford on Sea are an easy ten minute woodland walk. 

For those needing help to relax, the Spa has a hydropool with seven different seats, back, neck and leg massaging jets. It’s not designed as a hot tub or jacuzzi. This is a proper hydropool with 60 jets (most have 4-10 jets). Fresh water is used for each guest. 

There is also a small gym, steam room, rain shower and changing room. Plus, of course, all the fluffy towels, robes, slippers and glossy magazines that you’ll need. Local therapists can visit the house for treatments. Your host is a big spa fan. She is a interiors photographer and writer by trade, so sniffing out the best of the best is her day job. Staying here is a treat. 

The house has been in two glossy magazines – Insideout magazine June 2017, the article was Going Dutch and Wonen Landeliijke Stijl, Ed 2, in 2018, the article was Britse Ode aan Nederlan which means a British nod the The Netherlands.
Hygiene is important here. There is a mandatory charge of £100 for all guests. This is for refilling the hydro pool with clean water. We do this every time for our guests. It is not optional.
Min 2 nights. Max 4 nights in peak summer please.

more about this place...

The hosts here are great travellers and they have stayed in beautiful homes and hotels across the world. The property is a showcase of what they’ve learned. The combination of Dutch and English styles are a very lovely mix which is why the house has already featured in several glossy magazines. 

The property sits on a hill beside a valley, wooded with spectacular oak trees. Because you arrive and park at tree canopy level it feels like there is a wall of whispering green. Like the whole property, this was no mistake. The landscape design here is impeccable. 

Sandra says, “We wanted our guests to feel like they were in a place of healing and peace. We put the Spa and rooms in partly underground and set to the side of the main house. This gives guests privacy and space. By using the drop in the hill in the property design, the pool and spa look out into the forest and we love that.”

It feels both curated and wild. Like a modern and mini Capability Brown project. 

Inside here is a treat. No detail has been spared. It’s ready for a photoshoot any day of the week. 

The steps down into the Hidden Spa bring you to a long hallway that connects the two bedroom spaces and opens out into the pool area and onto the Spa. 

The Pool View room is airy and bright, and was built for peace and quiet. Colours here are white, cool grey and ocean blue. There is a main King bed (that faces the pool) and a beautiful en-suite bathroom with shower. For anyone wanting a secret sleep there is a clever Dutch cupboard day bed here. It’s on a raised platform and has shutter doors. You can shut yourself in, womb like, in this beautiful calm space for even more down time. There is a Smart TV here too for evenings relaxing. 

The Hidden room is tucked under the pretty gardens above. It has a small courtyard to let the light in below. The colours here are whites, greys and dusky roses. Central to the room here is the very lovely huge roll top silver bath. En-suite is the sink and toilet. 

Breakfast is provided for you

A healthy and top-notch spa breakfast is available for you each morning. Breakfast will include: homemade granola and muesli, quality smoked salmon and cream cheese, Italian meats and savoury biscuits, delicious yoghurts, local New Forest preserves and breads,  plus two fabulous smoothies Detox Green and Very Berry.  Allergies are catered for so let your host know if you are non-dairy or gluten free. 

You can take breakfast where you like. At the main table and chairs by the pool, there’s another little table by the pool, in your courtyard facing the pool, or inside the room if it’s wet.

On arrival, you’ll also find:

A bowl of organic fruit, healthy Gluten Free Energy bites, a jar of cookies, organic nuts and truffle chocolates. 

 The pool:

The pool area is particularly large compared to most private pools. It’s 14 metres long x 6 metres wide and includes a sunbathing area in shallow water. 

Guests are welcome to use the pool during the day. Please discuss times with the owners on arrival as occasionally the pool area is used by the family when they are here.  

 The Spa:

What a treat. It’s all yours. The spa area is separate from the pool and can be used until 8pm.

The hydro pool is large and has seven different seats and sixty jets. It is particularly good for those who suffer from shoulder, back and leg stiffness or injuries. There is a large rain shower room here. But if you fancy breaking into a sweat and detoxing, head to the beautiful steam room with hot pebble stone seating. The gym area here has a rowing machine, multi gym, cross trainer and free weights and the view from here is directly through into the ancient oak forest. Towels, slippers, robes and a broad selection of spoily shampoos and products are all provided for you. 

Hygiene is important here. There is a mandatory charge of £100 for all guests. This is for refilling the hydro pool with clean water. We do this every time for our guests. It is not optional.

Accessibility:

The steps down to the house can be avoided. There is a 50-metre path (gravel and grass) that is wide enough for wheelchairs. It goes around the back of the Spa and up to the swimming pool deck. There are 3 steps up onto the decking and the rest of the area is on one floor – except the bath level in the Hidden bedroom which has one step to the bath, and toilet.

what makes this special...

Soak away your worries and strains. Install yourself on the sunbathing platform in the pool with a good book. Or retire to the hydro pool and bubble your cares away. This pool is big, seriously designed for relaxing and the room itself is a treat. Enjoy.

Head to the lake. There is a wooden platform here that’s perfect for picnics, yoga, meditation and reading.

Discover the local beaches. The coastal path walk is very close. A short 10 minute amble through the woods will have you out on the cliff top near Hordle Cliff Beach and Highcliffe which has the most sand.

Foodies will love nearby options. For health we love the Kitchen at Chewton Glen. For views of the Solent and The Needles go to The Beach House at Milford-on-sea, which is walking distance, or the Cliff House restaurant in Barton on Sea.  For gourmet go across the National Park to Limewood.
