Autumn into winter is our favourite time of year here at Spot in the Woods and our boutique Bed & Breakfast, Kitchen Café and Deli.
We are so happy, and proud of our wonderful team, to be named in the 100 Top British Hotels in The Times and The Sunday Times – “It’s intimate, relaxing … and a real bargain”.
The people are what help to make Spot in the Woods so special. When you arrive our friendly front of house team, Row, Marie, Ceara, Ana and Annika will greet you with a smile.
Our talented chefs, Gavin, Lucy, Moyra and their team are on hand to create something tasty in our bustling and buzzing Kitchen Café. You can see them at work in our open kitchen creating your next delicious dish! Andrew and our Kitchen Porter team work so hard to keep us spick and span. Lin and the housekeeping team work tirelessly to maintain the highest levels of cleanliness.
We have a real affection for nature and our surroundings and are dog friendly – including the ever-enthusiastic Malmsey, Nina and Gerard’s pride and joy!
We support 2 amazing local charities: Barrett’s Wessex, who’s aim is to provide support for those with oesophageal cancer in Southampton, Wessex and beyond and Forest Forge Theatre company based in Ringwood, who create wonderful performances for all to enjoy.
We have received our Poppy Appeal box, now proudly on display in our reception area remembering those who served and sacrificed. This year marks the centenary of the end of World War I and so please make your donations to the Royal British Legion – thank you.
Spot in the Woods is so much more than just a kitchen café and boutique bedrooms…. It is a lifestyle experience and we have many lovely items that are showcased throughout “Spot” available to purchase to take home.
We champion local artisan crafts people, artists and designers including Longbarn, Summerdown Mint, Sandra Binney, Sue Tinkler Art Glass and Nomad Originals, as well as locally made jams and chutneys, oils and dressings and a range of Lehmann glassware, designed in collaboration with owner, Gerard Basset. Do pop in to enjoy a bite to eat, a delicious Mozzo coffee, homemade cake, or glass of wine on our sunny terrace and stock up on presents and our very own deli goodies too!
After 10 years of running Hotel TerraVina, Nina and Gerard have made an exciting new beginning, creating Spot in the Woods. This new venture has been created to give our valued customers a wonderful homely and social experience, but not forgetting the exceptional service and special treats you’ve come to know us for. We hope you will share our new ‘Spot’ soon.
