Chewton Glen, New Milton, New Forest, Hampshire

A top choice for a luxury family holiday or break in the gorgeous New Forest, Chewton Glen is set in 130 acres. This a fantastic area for a family holiday, with so much to do, whatever age kids you have - from hiking and mountain biking, cookery classes to falconry, you will be spoilt for choice. And if you just want to relax and unwind? - there are indoor and outdoor pools and there's a spa, or perhaps you'd like to book afternoon tea. Meanwhile, the kids will have a lot of fun at the Beehive Kids' Club - set in its own treehouse-style clubhouse.

There's a range of good size family rooms and suites in the main hotel and neighbouring Coach House, some with bunk beds or cosy loft rooms that the kids will love. Alternatively, for maximum parental kudos, consider one of the treehouse suites - set high up in the canopy of the woodland in the hotel's grounds - and they have their own hot tubs too.
