Spend a peaceful night sleeping beneath the stars within a canopy of trees at Hotel Chewton Glen. There are four types of treehouse available: studio suites, loft suites, hideaway suites and the Yews – the newest and most private option, tucked away in its own glade. Inside the Yews, 35 feet off the ground, you’ll find rustic interiors defined by an earthy palette of olive greens and charcoal greys. Relax on a chaise lounge beneath a tartan blanket before a crackling wood-burning fire, or watch the sun set from your balcony with a crisp glass of prosecco. Carry your bubbles into your bathroom and soak in the freestanding bath while taking in views of the leafy forest.
Dinner-time can be as social or secluded as you like. A breakfast hamper delivered daily gets mornings off to the right start with warm, flaky pastries, refreshing orange juice and soft bread with preserves. There’s also a kitchen in the treehouse, where you can whip up your own romantic creations like chocolate fondue or make the most of local produce, such as rich venison or creamy Winchester cheese. In the elegant Dining Room restaurant, bold pops of chartreuse mirror the botanical beauty outside. None of the ingredients on offer have travelled more than 100 yards from the hotel’s kitchen garden, and are used to create delectable dishes like tender asparagus served with crispy scotch eggs, complete with runny yolks.
If you’re craving some pampering, make your final stop the award-winning spa. Take a dip in the indoor pool, which has been inspired by a traditional Roman bathhouse with its stately columns and blue sky ceiling fresco. Let your worries melt away in the outdoor hot tub or choose from one of 50 treatments in one of the candlelit couple’s therapy rooms; indulge in a bespoke warm oil massage or Oskia glow facial. Alternatively, why not relax in the serene, lightly scented aromatherapy sauna?
