Rising from the rustic landscape at the edge of the New Forest, a leisurely drive from Stonehenge near the Hampshire coast, is England’s definitive country-house hotel, Chewton Glen. The 58-room resort and country club has an executive golf course, 130 acres of English gardens, and a clay-pigeon shooting range. Guests can relax over perfectly executed afternoon tea service in either of the hotel’s two lounges, on an outdoor terrace, or in one’s room. Accommodations Decorated to English-country perfection, each of the 58 rooms and suites is delightful, but the Marryat Suite, with its views of the gardens and golf course, is bliss. Recreation Strolling the estate’s garden trails and playing croquet. Dining The Marryat Restaurant features the region’s best cuisine, with a menu that changes seasonally and dishes that incorporate local organic ingredients. Worthy Diversion The resort is minutes away from the Solent, the 30-mile-long waterway that sepaRates the Isle of Wight from the Hampshire coast. Rates From $570 to $2,450.
