Rhinefield House

Last week I went to the New Forest and stayed at the Rhinefield House hotel. The house has existed in its present form since the 1880s. There have been dwellings on the site since about 1097. It is set in acres of beautiful grounds with enormous Redwood trees all in the middle of the New Forest.

The oldest part of the house is the fireback in the central grand hall which has the date 1653. It apparently is modelled on Westminster Hall. The grand central hall is an exact copy of the Alhambra Palace in Granada because the workmen were brought over specifically from Spain to build it. There is a restaurant called the Armada which has an impressive wooden carving of Drake’s Fleet above a pale pink marble fireplace. While the restaurant may be grand the food is beautiful. James Verity is the head chef and he worked for Tom Aikens in Chelsea.
