    Muddy says: From family-friendly stays to chic celebration venues, the energetic women behind New Forest Escapes have gathered the very best properties in this magical pocket of Hampshire where ancient woodland meets the Solent.

  • Modern, scandi wine store.

    Berry Bros & Rudd Wine, Basingstoke

    Muddy says: Our award-winning wine merchant is a grape-lover's dream; all Champagne, fine wines, spirits and the very best, phew-the-kids-are-in-bed, easy-drinking bottles. 

  • Hydrotherapy spa pool.

    Chewton Glen Spa

    Muddy says: with soaring windows, Grecian columns, indoor and outdoor hydrotherapy pools plus 50+ treatments, we can’t think of a more perfect place to recharge.

    Muddy says: We love this new cookery school and bistro. Expect posh brunch & artisan pizzas with a sprinkle of Scandi-dust and an at-home-in-my-comfies vibe.

  • Gee Cartwright Cookery

  • A modern, expose brickwork kitchen.

    Season Cookery School, Lainston House

    Muddy says: Super whizzy training kitchen combined with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and zero high-octane, hell’s kitchen faff. Want to polish up your wooden spoon skills? Then this is the place to do it.

  • English Sparkling Wine

    Hattingley Valley Wines

    Muddy says: Park that prosecco, we're English Sparkling Wine girls all the way. Curious? Hattingley Valley produces some of the world's finest fizz... from grapes grown on Hampshire chalk. #proud

  • Chewton Glen Hotel

    Muddy says: We love this super-luxe yet family-friendly hotel where tradition meets 21st century edge — a hard balance to maintain, but this New Forest institution manages it with aplomb.

  • Cliff Cottage, Suffolk

    Muddy says: Open, spacious, airy, barefoot with the best views in East Anglia; you’ll kick your shoes of when you arrive, and who knows where they’ll be a week later.

    Muddy says: If bunting, bonfires and barefoot dancing are your thing, then you need to know about these bell tents for weddings, hens, festivals, family glamping and muchos more.

  • silver stacking rings and jewellery making equipment.

    Jewellery Moves

    Muddy says: Gather your dearest girls, be they friends or family, to make professional pieces that will tell their story for years, nay generations to come. Your teacher, the Royal College of Art trained Fiona Dowling, is a calm and deeply knowledgeable guide to the art of jewellery making.
