Perched on an exclusive plot in Milford on Sea (with ocean views galore), everything feels sunny-side-up at our bright & cheery beach casa!

From your door to the shore in just 50 steps, just pop through your VIP gate to wake up with a wild swim and paddleboard into the afternoon. Head to the buzzy village for afters- this really is the good life.

Styled with a nod to tropicana… the pina colada of holiday homes some might say… salt-laced days & late night conversations come naturally at On the Rocks. We especially love how you can ebb & flow from the ‘top deck’ onto the terrace and lawn, with a bonza BBQ that makes feasting a family affair (your Aussie host’s hospitality shines through)!

As the night draws in, everyone will likely gravitate to the games room, where air hockey, pool & table tennis beckon. The TV screen also happens to be the biggest we have ever seen- what a spot to cheer on your team.

With the sound of The Solent to lull you all to sleep, every grown-up bags a sea view here & little ones will be just as chuffed with their cosy bunk room- it’s a win-win.

Promising beachy bliss by the bucket-load, this special find puts barefoot strolls & family banter over screen time & to-do lists… and we wouldn’t be surprised if you want to make a stay here your new annual tradition!

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...

Inside

We love how the main living areas & bedrooms are set amongst the eaves of the first floor, to soak up those postcard-worthy sea views. We also love how this casa bucks the nautical trend, in favour of favour of fun & frivolous styling… Amongst the velvety teals, flamingo pinks, and bold wallpaper, you’ll be hard pushed not to smile!

Just like the surrounding seas, the flow here is organic. Your galley kitchen joins the dining room - which joins the living area - which joins the bedrooms – which joins your garden - which (like an infinity pool) appears to join the sea! Amongst the arched windows, high ceilings, and architectural features, everything has been crafted to frame your jaw-dropping view.

When seeking downtime, the plump sofas & chairs go best with a good book in one hand, and an iced something in the other… but there’s also the wow-factor games room downstairs competing for your attention!

Kitted-out with a snazzy games table; you can switch from air hockey to pool in a mere flick of the wrist, or pop up the table tennis to really get the competition moving. The stonkingly big TV (all 76 inches of it!) is primed for movies and matches, whilst the retro fridge/freezer is at-the-ready for snacks & sips.

You'll all be spoilt for choice when choosing your bedroom... younger adventurers will love their sweet & petite bunk room; and whilst the master does boast a rather large & lovely en-suite, all three of the larger bedrooms here enjoy those stunning Solent vistas.

Outside

Wow, wow, wow- the beach is practically your back garden, and the water’s edge is only 50 or so steps away... Staying at on the Rocks gives you direct access to the sea; just pop through your private gate & dip your toes in!

Back home on your ‘top deck’, you'll enjoy a private vantage point over The Solent, to The Needles & beyond (very lucky you)- with plenty of room on the patio and lawn to soak up your breath-taking backdrop… this casa’s plot really is the cream of the crop.

We love how the BBQ brings the heart of the home outdoors, and from breakkie & brunch, to supper & sundowners- you’d be hard pushed to get a table on the South Coast with a better view than this!
ParkingThe communal parking area has room for 2-3 cars.

Location, location, location...

As well as having a VIP location on Milford on Sea's coastline (you are literally 50 steps away from dipping your toes in!), a stay On the Rocks means that you are perfectly positioned to enjoy adventures on land and in the water...

Plot a potter that suits your family - we recommend a wander along Hordle Cliffs to discover neighbouring beaches, or hitting The Sea Wall to bird & boat watch your way into Lymington (you could also hire an e-bike if you wanted to explore on wheels).

Milford has a great paddleboard and wild swimming community, so you're sure to be in good company whilst you're here! Keyhaven's bustly little marina is a sweet place for paddleboard beginners to get to grips with inflatable fun, and we highly rate a stop at The Gun for afters.

After a day at the beach, head into Milford's bustling village to stock-up or treat yourself (Just 1/2 mile from On the Rocks). We always walk away with a full basket after popping in at No. 24 Biscuit House, and a full tummy at after a special seafood dinner at Verveine Fish Market & Restaurant!

5 stars! Fantastic spot right by the sea. We were 2 adults and 5 children, lots of space, including a games room. Walk by the sea to the playpark, cafe and kiosk. Less than 10 min walk to the village too, where there are cafes and restaurants and a co-op. New Forest Escapes team was friendly and efficient. As a suggestion I would just say to please supply a couple of extension leads to be used with the air hockey machine and for home brought electrical. Recommended. We will definitely come back if we're in the area again.

WHAT A VIEW!!! Having lived in the New Forest for most of my life, I still cannot get over how beautiful The Solent looks from this VIP vantage point! From morning swims and moonlit wanders, this really is that place to embrace life beside the sea. As the absolute cherry on top, the games room is perfect for a post-supper competition or two, and you'll love snuggling infront of that HUGE TV!

Expect BBQs, banter and good times- I just loved how the Aussie influence can be felt here! Mildford's buzzy village is the perfect spot to sit and sip something after a busy day at the beach; and whilst you're spoilt for choices of places to eat, drink & be merry nearby, I would definitely head back to On the Rocks for supper with a side of that jaw -dropping scenery!
