The Huntsman of Brockenhurst, New Forest
The stylish interiors make this popular local feel as though its at the centre of an urban conurbation rather than in a sleepy New Forest village. Food in the restaurant is excellent, with an open kitchen that boasts a wood-fired oven for pizza and a charcoal oven for steaks. Boutique rooms are either in the inn or in a converted stable block of garden rooms that open to a quiet quadrangle. Decor is playful and in vogue with bare tungsten bulbs and pots of succulents and diagonal metro tiles in the bathroom.
The Huntsman is a trendy inn with rooms on the main road from Brockenhurst to Lyndhurst - a suitcase-draggable walk from Brockenhurst train station, with its regular service to London. We love the fact you can have a car-free weekend break here.
Brockenhurst is the New Forest's largest village, with plenty of independent shops and restaurants.
