This is a fun place to hideout on holiday.  We love the private garden, the tiny treehouse, little gazebo and lots of outdoor toys. The styling here is simple, colourful and pretty. The bedrooms are sleek and lovely. It s well set up for families with multplei-generations.

Stay here for a good slice of coast. The seaside, at Keyhaven hamlet, is approx 2.5kms down a quiet lane. But we prefer to go via the footpath next door, through the wide fields, all with sea views and the Isle of Wight in the distance.

The centre of things here is the pub, there are no shops, just lovely views and the boat trip to Hurst Castle. Equidistant (and with a whole lot more going on) is Milford on Sea village which and has amazing foodie options, there are some lovely independent shops there too. Go further afield, (all of 5 miles) to Lymington for more. Don’t miss Keyhaven for water-y activities, and Milford for miles of epic beaches.

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

Inside

You'll park by the front door which takes you inside to the base of the stairs and into the sitting room area. The house is set up for families who will appreciate the thoughtful owners who've put a huge amount of effort and detail into this cottage. The kitchen is new, has plenty of kit for cooking, good views of the garden on both sides, and a separate dining room with a table to seat everyone will be perfect for family meals.

There is a good downstairs bedroom and ensuite shower - useful for those who don't want to climb stairs.

Upstairs bedrooms are all a nice size for a small cottage. Each will fit a travel cot in. The green and blue bedrooms feel a little bit chi-chi, the kids bedroom is fun, with quirky details.

The upstairs bathroom is particularly smart with dark blue walls and a giant circular mirror. Post-beach-walk-baths will be indulgent.

Home Truths

All of the bedrooms are a good size here. Travel cots fit in all rooms. The truckle bed pullout will make the kids room feel tight.

Outside

The garden at the back is mainly flat and has good views to the pony paddocks beyond.
There is a small play gazebo in the garden too.

The dining room has double doors that open up onto a small terrace. To the left, with access from the kitchen door, is another terrace with a solid table for outdoor meals. This seats 8.
Garden : Enclosed back garden with large patio with a solid wooden table with 8 chairs. There are lots of garden games for the kids but best of all, a little treehouse. It's quite high, so we have a rope ladder hanging. This will help filter out children who are too young to climb up, and parents can clip up the ladder if you don't want children to climb up. The garden has views to the surrounding pony paddocks and small holdings.

There's a little vegetable patch and a small herb garden too.

There is a charcoal BBQ for guests to use.
Parking : Parking for 3 cars outside the house.

Home truths

The treehouse is small, and quite high, so won't be suitable for all kids. The owners have hung a rope ladder for access which will help filter small children who don't have the strength to climb up.

We ask guests to sign a waiver if they are going to use it. You can tie up the rope ladder to stop little ones getting access.

Accessibility

You can park within 5 metres of the house. There is a small step into the house from the front. The downstairs bedroom has an ensuite bathroom but it doesn't have any special handles or grab rails. To get into the outside terrace you need to step over the door lintel but otherwise it's flat.

The stairs to the second floor have a good solid handrail.

The location...

We've put in the Insiders Guide to Milford here, but the house is on the back lane to Keyhaven - so here's a heads-up for you on this pretty village.

We love Keyhaven for it's great pub, no shops, wonderful crabbing, autumn beach foraging for samphire, and of course the coastal path - which is amazing for blowing the cobwebs away all year around. Make sure you read our Insiders Guide to Keyhaven too...

.

Milford on Sea is a lively and vibrant village just a few miles east of Lymington.  It sits on the coast and has extensive beach front which is sandy at mid-low tide.
