Number Two, is a lovely holiday home rental in the heart of Lymington Town. The feel here is fresh and modern. We love that although it’s central, it’s also very quiet and peaceful. Perfect for those wanting to explore the New Forest with the convenience of town-living.

The house is part of a private, gated development of 5 town mews houses. There is no public access past the house except other residents.

Coastal walks from here are superb. In both directions you can wander for miles with great foodie places as destinations.

Lymington is a stylish and colourful market town, often voted ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’ in The Times. Number Two is less than a minute walk away from the vibrant High Street and the picturesque cobbled streets of the Old Town Quay are only three minutes away.  Further on, you’ll find mile after mile of smart yachting marinas and sea wall footpaths to admire the boats from.

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 house is part of a new gated development of 5 town mews houses, all with three storeys. The property includes a private courtyard at the front, suitable for alfresco dining and barbecues in the summer months.

Downstairs you’ll find a modern and well-equipped kitchen, a compact eating area that seats 6 and plenty of cooking, baking and serving paraphernalia. The hallway, stairs and living room are colourful, bright and smart. There are some quirky bits and pieces including a miniature Eastport Pram sailing dinghy for a coffee table. There are masses of novels, reference and children’s books, and plenty of games to suit all ages.

Moving to the first floor there is a family bathroom and two bedrooms. One is colourful with twin beds that can also joined to become a super king bed. The second is a light and airy double room with an ensuite, quirky library themed wallpaper and a Juliette balcony.

The top floor is a light, airy and roomy. It runs the whole width of the house and has its own shower room and small private balcony. There is a Kingsize bed, a sofa for reading and a small desk and chair for those who still need a space to work whilst away. There is plenty of room for a travel cot in this room and here is where the additional airbed can be set up.

Babies and children welcome. Two travel cots, two highchairs, a stair gate, baby mat and toys are provided and there is a super cloth tent for indoor ‘camping’ adventures.

The house is really best for couples and families with older children and teenagers wanting freedom to explore the town. Also for those wanting a clean and stylish escape to the countryside from a town base. The Berthon marina is 3 minutes walk for yachties.

Home truths

The garden here is small and to the front of the property. It is private but the shared access for residents passes by. There are only 6 or so houses here, so this isn't a busy place. It is also a quiet place, all other residents are long term and like there to be much reduced noise after 10pm. Do be aware of this when you book.

For your safety, please do take extra care near the balcony (especially if allowing younger guests out here, who should be supervised at all times) and do not lean on the railings.


It is flat from the garage to the doorstep and a 30 second walk. There is a small step into the house.

You cannot get more central in Lymington than our lovely escape, Number 2... Tucked just off the High Street (30 or so steps from your front door), you really can wake up ready & raring for Lymington escapdes from here!

Head to Hoxton Bakehouse for your morning croissant & coffee, or hit the Saturday market to be first to find treasure. A little further down the High Street, follow the cobbles to the Quay for a people & boat-watching haven (we also love The Elderflower down here for a special supper out). Meet the resident swans, head out for a pirate trip, hire a paddleboard, or simply lose track of time watching the Sunseekers set out over The Solent- perfection.

Just a 2 minute stroll from Lymington Quay, Lymington Train Station is poised for pony-spotting adventures in Brockenhurst, or a day tripping to the Isle of Wight (head to Lymington Pier to catch your ferry).

If you are visiting during summer, we love the Sea Water Baths, but for whatever-the-weather adventures walk the Sea Wall to birdwatch all the way into Milford on Sea… lovely jubilee fun all-year-round!

5 stars! Lovely, clean and well equipped house in a very central location yet really quiet. Parking in car port was great and near to the house. Lymington and the surrounding area of the New Forest was very enjoyable, thank you.

Joanne Sept 2023

House was great, had all we needed in a good location.

Margaret June 2023

A well equipped town house, scrupulously clean, 3 minutes from the high street. Everything it says ‘on the tin’. Parking clock extremely useful; note to future guests ; don’t leave it in the car on your way home, which we did. Jan was very helpful and sympathetic. We posted it back on our arrival at home. Lymington town and surroundings made a perfect holiday. And finally I must mention the proliferation of clean, free public loos!. Ted and Rose.

Andy and family February 2023

We've had a great week here in Lymington. Your home was a lovely place to stay, great location and well equipped with everything you could need. Thank you.

The Laudato family February 2023

Lovely house, great central location. Was bright, homely and welcoming.

Stephen December 2022

Great house in a great position for the town and surrounding forest and villages. The walk in to town is literally 20-30 seconds and Lymington has pretty much all you could need in the way of shops. Very peaceful even in such close proximity to the town. Beds are comfy towels are good and the house has pretty much everything you could need for a stay. Highly recommend and well worth a visit.

Number two is perfect for exploring Lymington and the New Forest. The house is exceptionally clean and well equipped and we felt very well looked after.

Rebecca April 2022

Great location!

Phillip April 2022

A very well equipped house that matches the description provided. A great location within easy walking distance of amenities in Lymington whilst being very quiet. Accessing the property is straightforward with easy to follow instructions. The outside space is great for alfresco eating. The items provided for very young children (travel cot / high chair / toys) are a great addition. Everything we hoped it would be.

Sandra August 2021

We are a family of 4 adults, 1 toddler and 1 small dog. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The location is fabulous, there is a carport close by to the house, as well as a parking permit which was very useful! The house is very clean and tidy. The outdoor courtyard was lovely and secure. Would definitely stay here again!

Thomas July 2021

A well equipped house and in a great location. Even though it was just around the corner from Lymington High Street, it was very quiet. It was easy to get to both the New Forest and coastal walks from here. Lots of lovely pubs, cafés and restaurants nearby, nearly all of which were dog-friendly. We would definitely recommend.

Susan Bryant June 2021

Gorgeous house - great location. Beds were amazingly comfortable! Lovely amenities!!

Laura West May 21

Lovely stay at No 2 in Lymington. House was beautifully furnished and well equipped although we were hardly there as the weather was so good! New Forest Escapes team very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely use them again.

Belinda July 2019

Very central house with great facilities and quirky design touches. Particularly loved the garden which was full of interesting features - loved the solar elephant!

Jayne and friends November 2018

This is a lovely home in a great location in the heart of Lymington.

Andrew and friends September 2018

This is a great house, centrally located in Lymington. Very comfortable, with spacious bedrooms and private parking.

Danah, Airbnb guest June 2018

Just to say what a lovely night we had in Lymington. The house was fab and perfect for our girls gathering. Your recommendations were spot on and we had cocktails at Stanwells and a lovely meal at The Haven. Lymington itself is lovely and we are hoping to make it a yearly occurrence!

Rachel Shire February 2018

Number Two is a really well appointed house in a great location near the centre of Lymington, which we found had everything we needed for a great family weekend - plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 young children. The fenced off garden area was particularly useful with a walking 2-year old! We were lucky with the weather and one evening we used the BBQ which worked very well and stayed out in the garden area until about 10pm. Can't fault the accommodation which worked very well for us and everything provided was excellent. Lymington is a really picturesque town with a thriving Saturday market and the surrounding New Forest area is lovely. Would definitely stay at Number Two again!

David from Oxford

Excellent location both for Lymington and the New Forest. Both kids and adults really enjoyed our break. Everything in the house you could possibly need and very homely. Would recommend and be very happy to re-book.
