Return to the Cloud Hotel website

Saturday, 24 September 2016


I'm delighted to announce the arrival of Ryan Hawkins as our Head Chef. Ryan has previously worked at Pebble Beach and Elmers Court and we are enjoying his new menus which still have a traditional English theme. I  look forward to welcoming you to sample his delicious meals for either lunch or dinner.

Autumn seems to have come round so quickly but we are still enjoying  pleasant weather and the New Forest is a very calm and peaceful place to visit in the Autumn. It's the Pannage season in the New Forest when about 600 domestic pigs are released into the forest to eat the chestnuts, acorns and any other nuts available! Quite an unusual site to see.

If you want to enjoy the rich golden colours of the trees the end of October is the best time to come. Take advantage of either our mid-week break staying four or five nights and get one night FREE or enjoy a weekend break and stay two nights and get the third night FREE.

Just to remind you we are taking part in he World's Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 30th September between 10-30 and 11-45am. Do come along and bring your friends to support this very worthy charity and help us to swell the funds. Annette will be making her delicious chocolate brownies for you to enjoy as well as raffling two of her sponge cakes. We look forward to seeing you.

The Christmas cards are in the shops which should remind you to book your pre-Christmas lunch or dinner. We are getting booked up already so if you have a special date in mind don't leave it too late. You can find the menus on our website or you can call reception 01590 622165 and we will send you a copy of one.

Finally I would like to dispel all the rumours going around that I have left the Cloud Hotel! Myself and my team are still here looking forward to welcoming you to relax, unwind and enjoy the surrounding areas of the New Forest.

Til next time
