Chewton Glen, New Forest: hotel of the week

Chewton Glen hotel in the New Forest is the sort of Hampshire haven that makes a marvellous midwinter hideout: it’s all cosy nooks, sumptuous spa, 24-hour room service and magically appearing staff (the staff-to-guest ratio is two-to-one).

Mr & Mrs Smith say… ‘Chewton Glen is an 18th-century beautiful beast – and, with its refined air and formal elegance, it can’t help but exude that very particular type of Englishness that makes you wish you knew all the words to the national anthem. But this place is far too well bred to be stuffy or pretentious.’ Read the full anonymous review of Chewton Glen

After a decade of holidaying in lacklustre English country cottages, Mr & Mrs Smith Sub-editor Rachel Juarez-Carr's parents went wild in the early Nineties and whisked the family off to Norway; it was while sailing the fjords on a Ukrainian cruise ship that their 11-year-old daughter decided she loved travel. Once she completed her journalism degree at the University of Westminster, Rachel ran off to Los Angeles and crisscrossed the US for the next seven years, writing for two travel magazines and photographing everyone and everything. She’s now back in London, happy to be back shooting under grey skies and thrilled to be working with Smith's editorial team.
