History of the hotel
The Hotel's name is taken from the lawn at the front of the Hotel, originally thought to have been called Palmers Lawn (a historical typo culminating in Balmer Lawn). The name is mentioned in the Doomsday Book – how's that for history! Originally built in the mid 1800's as a hunting lodge, the Balmer Lawn is a classic Country House Hotel set in the very heart of the New Forest National Park. Undoubtedly this is one of the most iconic buildings in the New Forest.
The Wilson Family will be celebrating 25 years of ownership of the Hotel in 2022. Chris & Alison have retained the tradition of a warm welcome, comfortable rooms and wonderful food.
The New Forest is an ideal location for all of the family, including your dog.
Please note there is a nightly charge of £25 for each dog, this includes a welcome letter, bowls, bed, towel, poo bags, treats, and a breakfast sausage each morning of their stay!
Dogs must be kept on a lead inside of the hotel at all times and remain with their families even during meal times. Pet friendly dining options are available in the lounge, bar or on the terrace. Dogs are not permitted in Beresfords restaurant or in the indoor leisure facilities.
