New Forest wedding venue Burley Manor has been named 'Best Countryside Hotel' at the 37th Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence.

The awards celebrate excellence across Condé Nast Johansens' recommended properties and are widely recognised as a trusted mark of quality.

Refurbished in 2015, Burley Manor boasts a colourful eclectic range of rooms, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and charming Butler's Pantry, relaxing treatment rooms and an Insta-worthy outdoor swimming pool.

Located at the heart of the New Forest National Park, many of the rooms have views over the neighbouring red deer park and the restaurant showcases an exciting seasonal menu.

Recent initiatives include a new 15-mile menu, using ingredients all sourced within a 15-mile radius of the estate, a pop-up Temple Tipi for pamper treatments in the grounds and hosted its first foodie festival in the summer. The venue has more initiatives in the pipeline and is looking forward to the new year, when the team's vision will be one step closer to fruition for a very exciting launch.

General manager Adam Wilson said: "We want our guests to feel as if they are at home in the countryside when they stay at the Manor, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, so we greatly appreciate this recognition and will continue to offer the best service and experience for all our guests."

Executive head chef Ben Johnson added, "Our restaurant really is at the heart of the Burley Manor experience and our menus remain true to the seasons and local producers, as we continue to surprise and delight guests every time they visit."

Burley Manor's grand Grade II listed exterior dates back to 1852 and is combined with a home-away-from-home interior blending old manor house charm with a contemporary, eclectic twist.

As well as a wellness sanctuary, with a top-notch restaurant and rooms, it's a magical wedding venue too.The Barn is a seriously stylish addition to the manor with beamed, vaulted ceilings and two working fireplaces, perfect for a country-chic celebration.
