A Hampshire country hotel has launched a classic car package that includes an overnight stay in an old chauffeur garage, tasting menu experience and a selection of iconic British sports cars for hire.
The Montagu Arms, located in the heart of the New Forest and a stone’s throw from the Beaulieu Motor Museum with its world-class collection of vintage cars, will start hosting petrolheads with a luxurious package of dreamy treats.
