East Close Hotel is one of the New Forest National Park's hidden jewels. Blending Georgian elegance with a contemporary twist, all the while sitting on the edge of the forest you'll find a welcoming place to More stay and a unique venue for weddings and events. Set in 18 acres of rustic grounds, this boutique hotel has long provided a place of relaxation and inspiration for guests. In fact one of them, author Lewis Carroll, is rumoured to have created his tales of a certain young Alice and her adventures in the enchanting walled garden, our perfectly maintained croquet lawn and the twists and turns of the woodland - perhaps you'll be curious too and take a wander?
