Recently designated National Park status, the New Forest is home to some of South East England’s most picturesque countryside and is filled with a great variety of things to do and places to stay.
With shaded paths meandering through ancient woodland, picturesque villages dotted amongst the landscape, stunning coastal routes and dozens of unique attractions, The New Forest is one of the UK's best loved outdoor treasures.

Careys Manor and SenSpa offers elegant, English tradition combined with contemporary oriental sophistication, making the ideal place to enjoy a stress-free and relaxing break.
