From Our Website

Our extensive grounds lend themselves well to team building and outdoor activities, so your event does not have to be all work and no play. Why not choose something a little different for your conference or celebration and enjoy the thrill of the grill? Throughout the summer months, South Lawn can hold private barbecues on the terrace overlooking the gardens, ideal for exclusive conference entertaining or a relaxed team build. Our self-contained Cornwallis Suite is located on the quiet side of the hotel, surrounded by gardens and overlooking the countryside.


The restaurant at The South Lawn Hotel, with views over the gardens, offers traditional and international cuisine with a wide range of fine wines to complement your meal. The Terrace is ideal for exclusive and relaxed outdoor entertaining and for light lunches and leisurely afternoon teas. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, close to the village of Milford, and within easy walking distance of several beaches, The South Lawn Hotel is just a short drive away from the wonderful New Forest and some of England's most beautiful coastline.


We have 26 en-suite bedrooms, all very similar and spacious. All rooms include colour tv, tea/coffee making facilities, iron and ironing board, fan and hairdryer which helps to save you packing those bulky items. Extra child beds and cots are also available upon request at an additional charge. Check in time is from 2pm as this allows for guests from the previous night to have departed and for us to prepare the rooms for you. Check out time is by 11am. Of course common sense must prevail and if your room is ready earlier or not used the night before early check in may be possible.


We are experienced in offering respectful, compassionate and a caring service to help you mark what is ultimately an important occasion for friends and family. We make every effort to deal with your arrangements with the minimum of fuss to make what can be an extremely stressful process as relaxed and easy as possible for you. Anticipating numbers can be difficult; you will find us to be flexible and sympathetic in this respect, but would ask you to remember that under catering reflects badly upon the hotel and can ultimately impact on your guests experience.


The South Lawn Hotel is conveniently positioned between the New Forest National Park and the splendid Hampshire coastline. Just 10 minutes from the idyllic market town of Lymington, this country house is now a lovely, tranquil retreat. The majority of our 26 en-suite bedrooms have views over the gardens and beyond. The Cornwallis Suite, with its own bar area and separate entrance, is able to cater for parties, weddings and conferences for up to 150 guests. Located on the quietest side of the hotel, surrounded by gardens and overlooking the countryside.
