Passford House Hotel



Passford House is steeped in history and the traditions of elegant, leisurely country living. The hotel lies midway between the New Forest village of Sway and the Georgian splendour of Lymington, which makes it the perfect base from which to explore the Forest, Countryside and Coast

We pride ourselves on the standard and variety of food and we are always delighted to welcome non-residents. The Dining Room, overlooking the gardens offers a menu combining traditional and contemporary cuisine, complimented with impressive wines from our well-stocked cellar. Dinner is served daily between 7pm & 9pm

For a lighter bite our Lounge menu is served daily from 12noon until 7pm. Whether it is a snack by the fireside in the bar or a cosy lounge, your room or a quiet corner of the garden-wherever you choose-the relaxing surroundings will ensure you won’t want to spend your time anywhere else!

No country house experience would be complete without indulging in a spot of traditional English afternoon tea. There is nothing quite like a pot of tea, homemade scones and lashings of clotted cream! Passford’s full afternoon tea is served daily between 2pm & 5pm and includes a round of freshly cut cucumber sandwiches, homemade scones, clotted cream and fruitcake – all washed down with freshly brewed tea or filter coffee served in a silver pot.

For the energetic our Leisure Centre is the perfect place to start working up a sweat. Guests are free to move between the multi-gym – offering rowing, cycling and  running – and heated indoor pool, before winding down in the poolside sauna. Keeping the children entertained is easy with our tennis court, croquet lawn, putting green and petanque.

For business our conference rooms make Passford the ideal location. Every great conference needs the right setting, good access and a great atmosphere. Located close to Southampton but only a stone’s throw from London we believe that we can provide a tranquil environment to help ensure the decisions you make are the right ones! Our event spaces can be arranged in Board Room, Class Room or Theatre style formations and accommodate conferences of up to 60 delegates.

For weddings and other events, whether you’re looking for an exclusive gathering or a larger celebration, we can help make your dreams come true. Licensed to hold both traditional and modern civil ceremonies Passford has a magical quality to it that you won't find elsewhere. Strolling through the Monet Meadow, sipping champagne and having photos on the terrace, where better to spend a truly memorable day?
Well behaved dogs are welcome on request in our ground floor rooms at a charge of £15.00 per dog per night.

Children from five years old upwards sharing a room with their parents are charged at £20.00 per extra bed per night, inclusive of bed and breakfast.

    Road Directions

    Just off the A337, 12 miles from junction 1 off the M27 at Cadnam, The Passford House Hotel is best approached via Lyndhurst. Follow the one way system through Lyndhurst following the signs to Brockenhurst and the A337.Follow the signs to Brockenhurst and Lymington along the A337 until you reach Brockenhurst. Go over the level crossing, still following the signs for Lymington, for about 4 miles. After you have passed the Filly Inn and Hobler public houses, past the sign welcoming you to Lymington, you will reach the Somerfield roundabout you need to go straight over this, the road runs beneath a railway bridge just before another mini roundabout.Go straight over at this roundabout, and then take the next turning right into Sway Road (just before the Tollhouse Inn public house). Follow the road until it forks right (there is a brown tourist sign indicating Passford House Hotel), take this right into Mount Pleasant Lane. Past SCATS Garden Centre and after approximately 1 mile you will see the Passford House Hotel entrance on your right.
