A popular New Forest hotel that appeared in The Crown has applied for planning permission to repair 21 "dangerous" chimneys.

The Grade II-listed Rhinefield House Hotel near Brockenhurst is also seeking consent to enhance the main entrance by installing electric glass doors.

Rhinefield House featured in the third series of The Crown in 2019.

It covered the period 1964-1977, with Olivia Colman taking over from Claire Foy as the Queen. Tobias Menzies replaced former Doctor Who star Matt Smith as Prince Philip, and Helena Bonham Carter took on the role of Princess Margaret.

Built in the 1880s, Rhinefield House portrayed one of the royal residences on the Balmoral estate.

Almost 20 actors, including Helena and Olivia, stayed at the hotel in 2018 as 90 crew members shot scenes for two-and-a-half days.

Now, an application to replace the chimneys has been submitted to the New Forest National Park Authority (NPA).

A design and access statement that accompanies the application says: "The condition of the 21 chimneys is considered to be dangerous.

"Wrought iron props built into the brickwork are badly corroded. Shafts are in poor condition with open joints, missing pointing, and decayed bricks.

"A structural survey carried out in February 2024 identified significant problems with safety.

"The chimneys have been poorly maintained for many years and are now in need of substantial repair.

"Some chimneys are in such poor condition, being out of plumb, extensively fractured, and with eroding mortar and masonry, that rebuilding may be the only solution."

A public notice giving details of the scheme has been published by the NPA, which is based in Lymington.
