Family

Two bedrooms are suitable for small travel cots. The garden is not fully enclosed but the fencing is good enough to keep under 5’s in. There are plenty of toys and boardgames here. We provide 1 travel cot, 1 high chair.

There are sandy beaches that are uncovered at low tide clearly visible from where the Hurst Castle joins the land. Otherwise the shingly beaches at Milford are a 10 minute walk from the house.

Best for…

Big, informal, multi-generational family gatherings where everyone spills over to the kitchen table, the kids go wild in the garden and everyone walks to the beach for picnics.

Safety for children

The fencing in the garden is good except in one area, which is easy to see from the kitchen table. The woodland area at the end of the garden is well fenced. .
There are wood piles in the wood which is accessed by paths from the bottom of the garden (you can easily see this path from the kitchen table). It is not safe to climb or play on any of the wood piles – parents must watch this.

Animals

There are chickens to the side of the garden which will be being looked after. A gardener will visit once a week. The are in a cage that they can’t get out of, and foxes can’t get in. Whilst they appreciate scraps of food from guests, they don’t need to be fed and definitely not let out. 

The Pottery

Fronting onto the road  is a fully functioning pottery which will be in operation during normal working hours. They run a small shop and courses there too.

Accessibility

The spiral staircase to the loft bedroom is steep and outside. There is a good downstairs bedroom and bathroom here.

What makes this special...

We love it here because the beach is so close – look out for the sand bar that appears during low tide and creates a warm lagoon for frolicking in the shallow waters. It’s really fabulous. Or simply walk along the shores to either Barton on Sea to the West along the cliff path or East towards Hurst Spit and Keyhaven.

The garden here is enclosed with a wooden play house, a spacious lawn area for family games and even a wooded area – great for making dens!

The Saltwater Pools in Lymington are unmissable for families in the summer. Dog owners, read our dog walk guide here.

theLocation...

Milford on Sea is a lively and picturesque village just a few miles from the market town of Lymington.  It sits on the coast and has extensive beach front which is sandy at low tide.

The village green is surrounded by great cafe’s, local independent shops, a butchers and a smattering of some really lovely wine bars and restaurants. Just a few minutes walk away is the extensive beach that runs both south to the renowned Hurst Castle (approx a mile and a half) or North (for a very long way!).

The beach is always bustling in the summer months with windsurfers, kite surfers, kayakers and paddle boarders, plus swimmers enjoy the quick swim to the sandbar where groups gather to chat or splash around in the surf.  Nestled just back fro the beach, the nature reserve is worth a walk through. It can be accessed along the stream through the centre of the village and winds up to the back of the houses and gardens. There are a few good rope swings for the young ones along the way. Wellies a must in the winter!

top picksTo do whilst you're here...

  • Hurst Castle
    Hurst Castle

    Jump on the ferry or take a brisk stroll on the 1.5 mile long shingle spit to the famous Hurst Castle where a £1 million renovation is currently taking place to keep it ship shape.

    This place is just the best for hide and seek. The view from the top is superb to the Isle of Wight. Anyone who likes history will love it here. Charles I was imprisoned here. The cafe is excellent. Read our blog for more info on Jason Crane, 3rd generation born here at Hurst. There is a small entry fee. Boat trips are about £5 for a return trip.

    For holiday events for kids of all ages so check out their website.

  • The Sea Wall Coastal Walk
    The Sea Wall Coastal Walk

    A fantastic walk on fairly level, gravel paths with amazing sea views. Also very good for bird spotting. The walk is 9 miles long but you can make it much shorter. The full walk takes approximately 2 hours. There are lots of cafe’s and pubs on the way and you can either walk back or jump on the bus!

    It can be windy so make sure you wear suitable clothing!

    For more information visit the trip advisor page.

  • Lymington Sea Water Baths
    Lymington Sea Water Baths

    Open over the summer months, this place is an eccentric joy. The water is cold, so hire a wetsuit or brave it. You can swim or go mad on the 110 metres floating obstacle course (bit like Top Gear on water) – perfect for teens. There is also a smaller splash pool and sand pit for little kids. Good changing room options and fabulous ice cream too. Charges are very reasonable.

    Remember, New Forest Escapees receive one free coffee for each group from the kiosk too!

    For opening time and entry charges visit their website.
