 More about The Master Builder's House Hotel

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.

What’s more, The Master Builder’s is located on Lord Montagu's Beaulieu Estate in the New Forest National Park and just a few minutes' drive from Beaulieu Palace House and the National Motor Museum.

Steeped in history, it is the house that the master builder of Nelson’s ships lived in when he oversaw the building of his ships at Bucklers Hard.
