Hampshire boutique hotel The Montagu Arms has added to new suites to its offering, designed to meet the need for luxury ‘grown-up breaks’ in the country.
The two new Hay Loft suites have been created in an existing barn, designed in partnership with a local ecologist to retain as many features as possible, including a ‘bat hotel’ in the roof for a family of bats who were already in residence.
Managing director James Hiley-Jones said: “We wanted to give the barn a luxurious, modern feel while still retaining as many original features as we could – and this included paying close attention to environmental concerns.
“It’s very important to us that our guests feel as cosy and relaxed with us as they would at home – but with added luxury at every turn.”
The new suites have private terraces, first-floor lounges with original exposed beams and views over the gardens and croquet lawn. Bathrooms have free-standing baths, walk-in drench showers and underfloor heating.
They are also home to Nespresso machines and Ruark Bluetooth audio systems.
The Montagu Arms is situated in Beaulieu and is home to a 3 AA Rosette Terrace Restaurant, run by Roux Scholar Matthew Tomkinson and 24 bedrooms.
