The Lime Wood Spa
The Lime Wood is a boutique country house hotel set in the heart of the New Forest. It is part of the The Lime Wood Group, a personal collection of fine small luxury lifestyle hotels where the focus is on authenticity and informality of design, food and service.
The hotel was a five year project and collaboration of creative talent, with architectural parts designed by Charles Morris and Ben Pentreath, interiors added by David Collins and food by head chef Luke Holder. The Lime Wood is the ultimate countryside getaway and the only 5 star luxury country house hotel in the New Forest National Park.
The stunning Regency country house was originally established as a hunting lodge in the 13th Century and Ben Pentreath of Working Group Design restored the main house and its extensions, comprising sixteen bedrooms, a series of classically designed sitting rooms, library, dining room, informal eatery, bar, cellar and billiard room. Meanwhile Charles Morris, whose previous work includes the Orchard Room at Highgrove, designed the additional buildings which include a further eleven suites and two guest rooms. The New Forest luxury hotel interiors have been created by David Collins as a modern interpretation of the classic English Country House look, in a style that is both luxurious and relaxed.
Marquee was commissioned to design, supply and install the audio systems throughout the hotel’s public areas, including the bars, lounges, restaurants, billiard room and the garden terrace. Bose loudspeakers were used throughout for their high sound quality, wide coverage and discreet appearance which merge aesthetically with the hotel’s luxury interior. For control and amplification, Marquee chose Cloud Electronics, acknowledged for high reliability and also providing the simple user controls needed by hotel staff.
