We operate a small and unique collection of hotels and pubs with rooms in beautiful places, each with its own distinct style.

We are delighted that The Master Builders, Spot-in-the-Woods and The Bull & Swan are now reopen for outside dining. We’re now looking forward to the bedrooms and inside dining opening on the 17th May, when The William Cecil will re-open as well.

As you know, there are various restrictions on how many people from which households and bubbles can dine together (up to tables of 6 from mixed households or 12 if only two households are involved)….so please follow the rules until we have full opening of everything for everybody, hopefully on 21st  June.

Please be aware that Government guidelines require every person from the group aged 16 or over to either check in on the Covid 19 Track and Trace app or to let us have their contact details.

We can’t wait to see you back again and thank you for waiting so long.

On each of the hotel websites (links below) there is more detail on the individual hotels, but for a quick way to book tables online at each of our special places, go to:

The Master Builder's

With beautiful views over the Beaulieu River and set at the end of the grassy street that is Buckler’s Hard village, it is difficult to imagine a more picturesque setting for a hotel on the whole south coast of England.

The Bull & Swan

Once upon a time there was a drinking club at Burghley House. It was founded by The 5th Earl of Exeter in 1684 and it was called The Honourable Order of Little Bedlam. They met at The Bull & Swan. Things have a habit of coming round and we are delighted to invite you to dine on our local produce, sup our fine ales and obviously behave very, very well!

The William Cecil

The William Cecil lies within the magnificent Burghley Estate, the centrepiece of which is Burghley House, one of the foremost Treasure Houses of the United Kingdom.

Spot in the Woods

Spot in the Woods is a Boutique Hotel and Kitchen Cafe at the gateway to The New Forest. Family, cycle and dog friendly! Five new shepherds huts with ensuite shower rooms were added last year.
