Balmer Lawn Hotel



Built originally in the mid 1800's as a hunting lodge, the Balmer Lawn is a classic Country House Hotel set in the very heart of the New Forest National Park. Undoubtedly one of the most iconic buildings in the area.

Our emphasis is on comfort and great service. The hotel's tasteful blend of the contemporary and the traditional ensures the perfect combination of old fashioned values with a modern twist.

A delightful 4 star Country House Hotel offering direct forest access, ideal for walking, cycling or just having fun in the Forest! Rooms to the front and side of the hotel have stunning views over the New Forest.

Our 54 rooms range from traditional country house to modern/contemporary, so we can suit all requirements from leisure guests, families to business travellers.

The Hotel sits in its own grounds of some 3 acres, with lovely gardens and grounds and is surrounded by the beautiful New Forest National Park on three sides. We have an extensive range of leisure facilities – indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fully equipped gym, Finnish Sauna and spa bath - you will not be short of things to do, even if the weather is being unkind!

Good food and great service!! - combined with 2 AA rosettes for Fine Dining you will not be disappointed when dining in Beresfords.

Our Executive Chef, Andrew Gault and his talented team produce daily menus using fresh local produce wherever possible. You will be guaranteed an unforgettable dining experience. 

Saltus Spa has a stunning view over our beautiful landscaped gardens.  Reawaken your senses with a massage or facial in one of our woodland themed rooms, then to enhance your experience, a special kind of balm awaits you in our Relaxation area. 

We are thrilled to announce our new Spa partnership with Espa.

    Road Directions

    The hotel is situated on the edge of Brockenhurst village in the New Forest. We are 1/2 mile from Brockenhurst Railway Station, providing a direct link to London Waterloo (approx. 90 mins). Bournemouth and Southampton International Airports are just 15.6 & 15.4 miles away respectively. We are 8 miles from M27 (junction 1), linking with the M3 and M25 motorway networks. From the M27, the A337 leads through Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst, and can be joined by the A35 also. From Lyndhurst follow the signs for the A337 to Brockenhurst. Continue along this road for approximately 3 miles and just as you start to enter Brockenhurst you will see the Balmer Lawn Hotel on your left.
