Meetings & private events work so much better in great venues, in great locations.

For exceptional eating and drinking during your event, our passionate chefs have prepared a selection of appetising menus - we call it ‘brain food’ – anything from tea & cakes to set menus and platter-style, banquet feasts. To take the stress out of organisation, and to ensure your event will run smoothly, we’ll provide you with the services of a dedicated event coordinator.
For before and after your event, we can offer attendees discounted room rates for those wishing to stay (for the night prior to and night of the event). Why not take advantage of the award-winning, in-house restaurants, access to the luxury spa and gym, and a host of outdoor activities on the harbour, local beaches and in the New Forest itself.
