This gorgeous beach house offers laidback living to perfection… With the sea only a 3 minute wander away, you’ll be able to explore 5 miles of Milford’s stretching coastline for salty-filled days of paddling & picnics! Back home, there’s plenty of room for all the fam to relax…

In the generous open-plan kitchen/dining room, pops of colour & natural finishing touches will instantly make you feel welcome. Owned by two summer-loving foodies, this room is one that all will enjoy- with ample space to cook, chat & chill! (we also adore the sofa area too for morning coffee… or keeping an eye on supper prep!)

Savouring sunny days, throw open the bi-folds and spill out into the garden for a game (or sip!) of something before a BBQ feast… Milford on Sea has THE most gorgeous array of local shops to stock-up! For afters, head to the impressive living room- with a HUGE corner sofa & chaise to sink into, this is a room fit for Netflix marathons if ever we saw one!

Heading up to shotgun one of the 4 bedrooms… the master is a must for most… drift off with the windows open so you are ready for a beach day come-sunrise. Overlooking The Solent, you really can’t beat Milford’s views, which stretch over to the Isle of Wight and beyond! The sea is fab for wild swimming, the little town buzzing with indie shops & restaurants, and the fresh salty-air surrounding you at all times… if you are looking for an adventure-filled seaside escape this is it!

What makes this place special...

Highlights staying at this house and in the local area...

All the essential details.

Here's your full run down of this place, inside and out...


The space here is soooo generous & welcoming...

Starting at the heart of it all, the large open-plan kitchen / dining room / coffee corner invites you all to sit, sip & feast together! We love the feeling of laidback living in here, with pops of colour & natural textures bringing a sense of fun & relaxation. Overlooking the garden, open the bi-folds to bring the outside-in... perfect for savouring balmy, summer nights.

Back to the kitchen (and its uber-handy utility room!), the owners have left no stone unturned when it comes to gadgets & gizmos; so fellow foodies will adore 'woking' here! With a vast central island, you'll find everyone stopping to chat as you chop, but there's also the uber-soft blue sofa for spectators & coffee-takers to chill as well!

Leading off into the main living room, you'll instantly feel impressed with the height & proportions. Softened with plump cushions, a gorgeous green feature-wall, and a HUGE corner sofa & chaise... you'll never fight for a spot... this is the ultimate chill out space!!! But, when all has gone quiet, we recommend drawing the curtains, lighting the fire & pouring a little night-cap.

Back past the downstairs bathroom (handy for big families!), please do head to the master immediately! Here you'll enjoy a kingsize bed, dressing area, and en-suite... you can even catch a glimpse of the sea in-between the homes in front.

The three double rooms enjoy a boho beachy-vibe for ultimate switching-off. There's another bathroom up here too - so everyone gets to wash away the sand... without arguments!

EV Charging - You are welcome to enjoy a complimentary charge during your stay to help you enjoy exploring the lovely New Forest!

Home truths

In summer, you need to park in the driveway, the road becomes semi-dangerous territory with parking inspectors visiting from time to time. There's space for 3 cars easily.

There is an extra charge for logs and kindling to burn on the fire (October- March) but feel free to BYO!

For security reasons there is a ring camera installed outside of the property.


There's one step in to the house at the front door, otherwise flat in the kitchen and downstairs shower. All bedrooms are upstairs but the stair rail is good. 

So if you are organising a group with less mobile people then read our ideas (and tested excursions) here in our blog 'Holidaying with less mobile folk? Here's where to go, what to do!'

Location, location, location...

You are just a 3 minute walk from beachy bliss at Cliff House… wander to the clifftop (Hordle Cliffs) and take the stairs down to make yourself at home amongst the VIP Solent views! We love how this area of Milford doesn’t ever seem to get too busy, and it’s a fab spot for wild swimming, paddle boarding, sunbathing and picnicking (the pretty beach houses make for a great backdrop too!).

After a day at the beach, Milford village has just the ticket for R&R (a little over a mile away)... With lots of indie spots to eat, drink and be merry (we love The Paddle for a coffee and Rays for a relaxed family meal), Milford also has a great community spirit & there are often events run on the small green here to join in with. If you are looking to stock up on provisions, you’ll find all you need at the much-loved butchers, bakers and convenience store. Grab a takeaway Thai from Britannia House if you feel like dining back at home. If you want to work up an appetite, you can also walk The Solent Way coastal path to The Cliff House in barton on Sea, for a great atmosphere and yet more stunning scenery.

For day trips out, Sway has lots of lovely countryside walks with ponies ambling through the heathlands, whilst Lymington makes for a great ice cream eating and yacht-spotting day out. - both are around 5 miles from Milford.

Jay July 2022

Loved my experience with New Forest Escapes, 5 star service all the way. Booked with them to stay at The Cliff House and loved it. Such a great property in a lovely area near the beach. We had Sophie the private chef do us some lunch on one day which was delicious too. Real attention to detail throughout the house and lots of great, local knowledge from the staff at New Forest Escapes too. Will definitely be booking again.

Erhan April 2022

A beautiful house with excellent cooking facilities for a foodie family. Great living room for hanging out in on a rainy day and an excellent location for exploring both the coast and New Forest.

Wonderful holiday had by all..... 'old and young'! Perfect for extended family celebrations. Excellent location and the kitchen a chefs dream. Loved going to the beach and fish and chips on the green at Milford on Sea. Can't wait to come back again!!

The Walkers and Kersey's July 2021

Fantastic beach location. Beautiful home. Huge family kitchen - well stocked. Over and above expectations. Felt like home.

L and family December 18

Just returned from a fabulous stay at Cliff House. Superb house, wonderfully furnished, with a great location and the pictures on the website are exactly like the house. Loads of room for 8 of us both inside and outside, would recommend this house and New Forest Escapes, who made the booking process both easy to do and very friendly. Thank you.
