What Can I Expect
Flight and food in the lap of luxury with an exclusive New Forest heli dining package from IntotheBlue! This is your chance to seriously impress with return helicopter flights chartered just for you, to take you and your partner to Chewton Glen for a spot of fine lunchtime dining.
The journey is sure to take your breathe away on these heli dining days from Solent Airport. The two of you will be invited aboard the executive chopper by your pilot, who will be whisking you both off to one of the New Forest’s finest restaurants. Your journey will take you over the waters of the Solent, past the Isle of Wight and the North Solent Nature Reserve to Chewton Glen.
Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa is where you’ll be dining. It’s a quintessentially English and very gorgeous five star hotel resort. Nestled in countryside on the fringes of the New Forest, it's just a short distance from wild cliff tops between Barton on Sea and Friar’s Cliff. As you swoop down in your helicopter, you’ll notice the stunning grounds, complete with croquet lawn, sunny terraces and walled gardens too.
After dropping down gently to land, the doors will be opened for you and you’ll step out. Enjoy your moment as you make your way across the lawns to the hotel, where you’ll be shown to Chewton Glen’s fine dining restaurant. You’ll be served a wonderful three course luncheon in opulent surroundings, with attentive staff caring for your every need.
The menu combines innovative dishes with classic British recipes, so you can taste something new, or go for a well-known dish cooked to perfection and presented in impeccable style. The dining room at Chewton Glen is a delight too - formal, yet relaxing and with the gentle hum of happy diners all around. We can only imagine this is how the rich and famous dine every day!
Relaxing over an after dinner coffee, it’s time to reflect on your return journey. Once again, it’s luxury all the way, with the helicopter ready and waiting to fly your back to Solent Airport. As the rotor blades start up, say goodbye to the New Forest, give a little wave to the staff of the Chewton Glen and relish the day you and your loved one flew to the New Forest for heli dining in style!
