All the essential details.
Here's your full run down of this place, inside and out...
- Our characterful townhouse is ship-shape, and absolutely ideal for friends & families looking to explore the Lymington and the New Forest...
Amongst its three floors you can expect nautical nods, top-notch kit, and a calming colour palette to make you all feel at home. We love how our Lymington escape blends all of the charm from its 1850's beginnings, with all of todays creature comforts... from rainforest showers to range cookers - you won't go without.
With a 'semi' open-plan kitchen/diner/living room, the main space here feels lovely & social, with a TV and mooching area by the log burner, and a dining table next to the kitchens hatch... but there's also a conservatory/TV room (just off the ground floor bedroom) for anyone seeking sanctuary or a cat nap.
After a night in the BBQ cabin, there's plenty of room for you to all hit the hammocks, with the downstairs bedroom + en-suite providing a great ground floor option. Upstairs, the family bathroom has ample room to scrub up, and there are three more gorgeous bedrooms to choose from... we shotgun the grown-up's 'crows nest' in the eaves. Whichever room you chose, you'll likely wake to the seagulls singing as a reminder that yet more coastal adventures await - what a way to start your day!
Master bedroom - Ground Floor Super king size bed with synthetic & feather bedding / Hair dryer. Bedroom 2 King size bed or twin with synthetic & feather bedding. Bedroom 3 Twins or super king with synthetic & feather bedding. Bedroom 4 - Loft room King size bed with synthetic & feather bedding / Hair dryer.

- Sip, supper, stargaze... there's something for everyone to delight in amongst the garden...
Little ones will love the outside play room, whilst grown ups can chat & chill on the sofa set-up out here (we imagine all ages will be vying for first dibs on the hammock too!).
Behind the dining table & chairs at the bottom of the garden, you'll find perhaps the most perfect 'whatever-the-weather' spot to eat, drink & be merry; with a showstopper of a BBQ Cabin! There's plenty of room inside for the whole party to snuggle in as you cook up a feast & swap tales into the small hours.
This gorgeous garden is a real bonus for adventurers, and we especially love how the tall trees (from the pub's garden next door) help frame the boundary to make you feel a million miles away from reality.
Garden BBQ garden cabin / Outside seating area with rattan furniture for 8 / Hammock area / Range gas BBQ. Parking The driveway is suitable for two small-medium sized cars.
- There is an extra charge for logs and kindling to burn on the fire (October- March) but feel free to BYO!
Just a couple of FYIs when bagsying one of the 4 bedrooms... The staircase leading from the first floor to the top floor is steep & small and not suitable for children, and there is fairly limited hanging space in the downstairs bedroom.
The Bosun's Chair pub is next door to Captain's Keep, but there haven't been any complaints or problems from guests to-date (this is actually one of the local's favourites!).
- For guests looking for level living, there is a ground floor bedroom with a king bed and shower en-suite. From here you can also go through to the conservatory/TV room and on to the garden.
Included in your booking cost are: all bedding and linen, towels for the house, kitchen essentials, any baby kit you've requested and cleaning the house after you leave. We also supply some treats to get you going for tea when you arrive. Enjoy!

Location, location, location...
Your Lymington townhouse is close to all of the action… just follow the call of the seagulls for a minute or two, to watch the world float by at the Quay. Grab a coffee as the little ones crab, before jumping ship onto a ‘Puffin pirate cruise' along the river.
Back on dry land, wander past a pub or two to find The Sea Wall and head out to watch the birds & boats at play on The Solent. From here you can walk all the way to Keyhaven in Milford, but you'll get stunning vistas no matter where you end up!.
Lymington's bustling High Street has a fab array of bustling boutiques & cafés, and we love scouring the stalls on a Saturday to see what treasures await! There are plenty of pubs & cafés here too, but you'll actually have the local's favourite (The Bosun's) literally next door to your escape.
Perfect for a car-free jolly, Lymington train Station is just 100 yards from your front door, and you can hop off in Brockenhurst (or head onwards to London in under 2 hours) to get off the beaten track & ramble amongst the ponies & donkeys… there are plenty of watering holes to refuel for afters!Insider's Guide >>

What a lovely house in a fantastic location. The house is well equipped, comfortable, child and dog friendly! Lymington is wonderful - a good place to use as a base to explore the New Forest and as a town it has nice dog friendly walks and some great family restaurants. Can recommend the nearby fish&chip shop and we adopted the pub next door as our local. We stayed in the Autumn and would love to return again in the spring/summer to make better use of the facilities on offer at the house.Stuart October 2022
We walked in and immediately felt we were in a home from home. Everything felt quality from the appliances to the furnishings and the very comfy beds! The location is excellent, just a short walk from the ‘Cobbles’ and the sea front, and with easy access to the high street with its Saturday market lining the road and making for a good atmosphere. If you have children we recommend a cruise with the pirate captain on the Black Puffin, from the old town quay, dressing up as pirates and ‘firing the cannons’ at boats passing by was great fun for all on board the 30 minute cruise.Jon September 2022
