About us

We are a personal collection of small lifestyle hotels and restaurants within two groups – Lime Wood Group and Home Grown Hotels, where our focus is on authenticity and informality of design, food and service. Starting in 2009 with the opening of Lime Wood, New Forest, we set about creating something a little bit different.

Lime Wood is the perfect hideaway in an ancient forest…a bolt hole that’s easy to get to but hard to leave.

Laid-back 5* luxury at its best, with Chefs Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder at the helm of the kitchen and an award-winning wellness spa in the grounds.

Nearly 10 years on we are now firmly established as one of the ultimate countryside getaways with recognised national awards under our belt, renowned chefs at the helm of our restaurant, and our own lifestyle magazine.
