Once a 13th-century hunting lodge, the Lime Wood, in southern England, has 32 light-filled rooms and a collaboration with celebrity chef Angela Hartnett to launch HH&Co Backstage, a new on-site cooking school. Guests can take classes ranging from preserving and pickling to preparing game.
Be sure to check out the surrounding New Forest, populated by wild ponies. Take a walk or bike ride through this former royal hunting ground. From $460.
