The Kings Arms Hotel

Described by the Mail on Sunday as a “jewel on the Dorset coastline”, this cosy boutique hotel is beautifully positioned on the banks of the River Avon, looking out to an immaculate bowling green, Norman-era castle ruins. Aside from the location, the hotel’s other main lure is its award-winning restaurant. Running the kitchen is former Michelin-starred Chef Patron Alex Aitken, one of the New Forest’s best-known and well-regarded chefs.
