Chewton Glen is ‘better than The Ritz’

Chewton Glen hotel has come top of the Hoteliers’ Hotels Top 100 list.

The verdict comes from The Caterer journalists and AA hotel inspectors who have put  Chewton Glen ahead of The Goring (3), The Dorchester (5), Gleneagles (8) and The Ritz (11) in the Hoteliers’ Hotel Top 100.

Chewton Glen was home of George Marryat from 1837 to 1855. His brother, Captain Frederick Marryat, wrote Children of the New Forest during a long stay there. At the time Highcliffe and Barton were considered to be part of the Forest.

Chewton Glen is in the glen, or inland continuation, of  Chewton Bunny which at present coastal walkers must follow as far as the road since there is no public footpath at Naish Farm caravan site. But with Chewton Glen bed and breakfast starting at £235 many will still prefer to stop at The Globe Premier Inn at Highcliffe.
