About this property

The Retreat, New Forest is a characterful dog-friendly Georgian mansion on the Hampshire / Dorset border. This setting is the perfect place to unwind and participate in a wide variety of classes, treatments, experiences and workshops (we recommend to book these in advance).

Their 15 dog-friendly bedroom property is located just three minutes drive from the New Forest and is just eight minutes drive from the Dorset coast, offering canine guests the chance for countryside walks and frolics by the sea. The striking building is set in acres of idyllic grounds - a perfect playground for your dog and, once the playground of the Alice Liddel, the real Alice in Wonderland.

Your dog will love the private beach-wood walks and enchanting grounds that will make this a stay to remember for both human and doggie friends alike. The Retreat also hosts a selection of holistic classes including yoga and both the restaurant and artisan café are dog-friendly. Also close by are the Isle of Wight, Christchurch, Bournemouth and the dramatic Jurassic coast.

At The Retreat, New Forest, convenience meets tranquillity with their self-check in system, please note that there is no manned reception, though staff are on site during the day. Before your arrival, you'll receive an exclusive code, granting access to the building and your room sent directly to you via email. Extending a warm welcome to dogs and humans alike, indulge in a revitalising stay in the New Forest. Craft your perfect retreat weekend, starting with a flat white and Scrambled eggs on artisan sour dough toast at the café, a leisurely stroll around the grounds, followed by invigorating yoga and a refreshing ocean dip. Explore lunch options nearby, then return for a class before indulging in an evening meal at the Colin Nash Restaurant.
