Luxury Country Inn Charm in the New Forest

Montagyu Arms Hotel BeaulieuThe Montagu Arms is a lovely wisteria and ivy vined historic Four Star bed & breakfast style luxury English inn. It is centered in the village which neighbors the Beaulieu Estate, ancestral home of the Montagu baronial family in the midst of the New Forest National Park and now home to the National Motor Museum. The hotel is one of the premier accommodation properties of the south coast awarded 3 AA Rosettes for hospitality and comfort, and its Michelin Star Restaurant is counted as one of the top 100 restaurants in the UK.

The area surrounding the Montagu Arms Inn is steeped in history and the natural beauty of the park, now mostly shorn of the trees of its mane. The Beaulieu estate was taken from the lands of a former Cistercian Abbey dissolved under Henry VIII, and the surrounding New Forest provided the oak for sailing ships of the British Navy including the fleet of Admiral Nelson. The ships were built and sailed from the estuary of the Beaulieu River. In WWII the estate and surrounding land was home to the secret base of the Special Operations Executive school for spies and deep cover infiltrators into Europe against the Germans occupation, working with resistance fighters.

Ivy Chimney Montagu ArmsThe Montagu Arms Hotel as it stands now has a 200 year history of catering to discerning visitors. There has been an inn on the location in the Beaulieu Village crossroads since the lumbering and farming days of the 16th Century. Annual fairs were held at the inn since 1607. The original front façade of the building was demolished in 1887 with a new construction incorporating the Monty’s Inn Public Restaurant and in 1925 a new wing was added for more rooms, forming the hotel as seen today. In both its exterior and interior the Montagu Arms Hotel offers visitors a quintessential timeless English country house charm and aristocratic sophistication. Elegant original features including oak floors and wall paneling, with old brick hearth fireplaces throughout the classic inn, present an environment of peaceful comfort and just a touch of gentry opulence. Creating the ideal setting for a romantic retreat or exploring the New Forest national Park or the attractions of the Beaulieu National Motor Museum, Beaulieu River Walks and the maritime museum of Bucklers Hard.

The Montagu Arms offers 22 bedrooms and suites of sophisticated style and traditional English character with a romantic dash of of country charm. Choose from sumptuously furnished suite or superior rooms, some with traditional four poster beds, either overlooking the Beaulieu Palace House of the estate or looking out on the beautifully lush gardens. Each room is equipped with en-suite bathrooms stocked with a selection of luxurious toiletries, and entertainment centers with flat screen television.
