Chilworth Manor, Southampton

Be the lady of the Manor at this Edwardian escape with spa, set just outside the city in 12 beautiful acres

Weekend Escapes

A countryside escape close to some of Hampshire’s most beautiful places to visit, the grand Chilworth estate is a stunning hotel and wedding venue – and gorgeous place to base yourself for a getaway with friends and family in the county.

Located in a conservation area of ecological importance, the Grade II-listed building has 97 bedrooms. 28 are in the manor and 69 in the garden wing, with 10 room types to choose from. The grand hotel building is surrounded by 12 acres of grounds with lots to explore, include a scenic pond, walled garden and peaceful ‘deer ring’ of trees, planted to form an enclosure.

Chilworth Manor has been managed by Legacy Hotels for the past eight years, and was given a luxe, million-pound refurb in December 2021. The Hotel’s leisure facilities for guests are all found in The Club. Inside the bright modern building is a gym, pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room plus freshly-updated treatment rooms for bliss-out treatments including massages and facials.

Of course, no Country Manor hotel stay is complete without a slap-up afternoon tea – and Chilworth does a very good one. Think fresh finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and homemade jam, pastries, a choice of tea or freshly brewed coffee. Enjoy it in the Edwardian Manor House or, if the sun has his hat on, take it on the terrace overlooking the landscaped grounds and the conservation area beyond.

Too local to swing a stay? Book in for an afternoon tea spa package. Now there’s a classic combo that never fails to hit the mark. And relaxxx…

Brilliantly located for loads of great things to do in Hampshire, families can head into the city for theatre, museums and shopping. And fab family day trips to Marwell Zoo, Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium, Beaulieu Motor Museum, New Forest National Park and Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park are all in easy striking distance too.

Chilworth Manor also has some brilliant events held right here at the hotel, too. Like monthly cocktail making masterclasses, to seasonal happenings like Christmas wreath making, and an annual Easter Egg hunt and falconry show.

Looking for somewhere to tie the knot? The Chilworth Manor wedding team have won awards for coordinating dream-come-true days. The fabulous wedding venue offers a choice of ceremony and reception rooms and family and disabled facilities to accommodate the whole guest list.
