    Local Attractions

    The New Forest is one of the largest areas of parkland in the UK, so it’s worth some exploration in its own right. However, you can also head to Marwell Zoo, Beaulieu Motor Museum and Winchester Cathedral amongst other attractions.

    Safe Hands for Cancer

    Accredited by the SATCC and part of the Safe Hands for Cancer Collection, this spa welcomes people living with or beyond cancer and offers a number of specialist trained therapists.

Spa & Leisure

Location can be so important and the New Forest’s untamed natural beauty is a great setting for a relaxing break. So add onto that a comprehensive range of facilities that include a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, children’s pool, manicure and pedicure stations, relaxation room, a gym, squash court, two tennis courts, and an outdoor pool for summer months, and you are on to a winning formula.

Favouring Elemis and Jessica products, the treatments list is equally extensive offering pre-natal options, anti-cellulite treatments, facials, massages, packages for men, reflexology and pressure point therapy, manicures, pedicures, waxing and make-up, there is something for every guest and every occasion.

Hotel & Accommodation

Once a spy training school on the edge of the New Forest National Park, today Macdonald Elmers Court Hotel and Resort is a welcoming retreat in 23 acres of private grounds. The three-star hotel enjoys views of the Solent coast and dates back to 1820 with many original features including fireplaces still sitting in pride of place. While the main building of the hotel has its roots in history, the rooms themselves are contemporary and cosy and located in their own courtyard. Meanwhile, in the grounds there’s a choice of one, two and three bedroom apartments and two bedroom cottages to stay in as well - perfect for groups, hen parties and families.

With views across the Queen Mary Lawn towards the coast, no hotel is complete without a decent restaurant, making the Waterford Restaurant a welcome addition to the venue, offering organic ingredients and a classic menu with inspired contemporary accents.
