About The Montagu Arms in Hampshire, New Forest

Discover our quintessential country house

Our country house hotel is part of a family-owned collection and a unique destination in its own right. Here, you'll find award-winning dining experiences, cosy rooms and suites, and a rich history dating back to the 16th century.

Classic country charm

These days, The Montagu Arms is a place to escape from the everyday. It's comfortable and inviting, but we go beyond homely. Think roaring fires and hearty seasonal favourites in winter, sun-drenched gardens for afternoon tea in summer, and The New Forest's best-loved attractions and centuries of tradition to discover all year round.

Vibrant heritage

A local favourite

The hotel started out as a coaching inn back in the 16th century. A favourite of local farmers and parish officers, the inn was first known as 'The Ship', before being renamed 'The George'. Since then, there has always been an inn on the site, right at the heart of the community.
