Country house hotel Chewton Glen, set in 130 rural acres between New Forest National Park and the South Coast, is a pastoral idyll. And now it boasts an arboreal retreat to enhance its bucolic chic. A dozen 'treetop suites' opened this month in a wooded valley 200m from the main hotel. Created by treehouse specialists Blue Forest, the six circular timber and glass delights contain two suites apiece, featuring wood-burning stoves, hot tubs on the deck and a secret hatch to accommodate breakfast-hamper delivery. High-end hotel and spa designer Martin Hulbert is responsible for the décor of the cabins, perched on stilts with three-metre-wide balconies level with the tree canopy.
