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...
Follow the footsteps of butlers past, to ascend the Manor House’s secret staircase & discover your very own slice of palatial paradise… Pylewell Park Penthouse is truly fab!!!
As the jewel of the crown, let's start proceedings from your private terrace! On the top level, throw open the doors (a smoking jacket would be apt right about now) to survey the endless acres of grounds and gardens with views stretching across The Solent. This REALLY is a showstopper!!!!!!!
When you have soaked up the vast vistas… and that might take a while… please do head back downstairs to park your martini on the forte piano & explore some more.
With three gorgeous kingsize bedrooms to bagsy (each uber-plush, and with their own 'theme')... there is ample space for you all to feel at home.
The living/dining room overlooks the grounds; so whether reclining on the huge sofa, tinkling on the ivories (do feel free to try out the piano), or cosying up in-front of the fire... you may well feel like you are lording it, and we really wouldn't blame you!
Whilst you have many fine-dining and gastro places a few minutes drive away in Lymington (we also highly rate the local East End Arms), the green & retro kitchen definitely adds a dash of fun to food prep; with everything you need to brew, breakfast or supper.
Red Bedroom King-sized brass bed with built in wardrobe, original feature fireplace. Mixed feather & synthetic bedding. Blue Bedroom King-sized four poster bed, two window seats with garden views. Mixed feather & synthetic bedding. Green Bedroom King-sized bed with floral bed head, original fireplace and built in wardrobe. Mixed feather & synthetic bedding.
Family Bathroom Large deep bath for long soaks with a shower overhead. Separate WC Next to the family bathroom.
All the rest...
Kitchen Electric Oven with 4 hobs / Fridge with small freezer/ Dishwasher / Kettle / 4 Slice Toaster / Microwave / Hoover / Iron / Clothes Dyer Mod Cons Large Smart TV / Wifi Connectivity Good WIFI but rural speeds. 4G and mobile service is generally good here. Kids' Stuff : Babies and children are welcome (please do not let them access the terrace). A travel cot, highchair and stair-gate are available on request Pets Dogs are welcome for a small charge. A dog bed is provided for your convenience.
Guests are encouraged to wander around the estate with 27 acres of gardens and a further 15 acres of arboretum.
In the late 1800’s the owners added a Japanese lake with ornamental bridges, islands, bamboo and starting what is now an extensive and important collection of Magnolia trees. A collection of rhododendrons was established and, now as the garden has reached it’s maturity, walking around the gardens is sensory treat. From March to end Sept, it’s particularly special. There is also a private path through the grounds here which will take you to the wild and remote bordering beach... what more could you ask for?!
You may share the grounds with guests of Pylewell Park Manor House... but with over 30 acres at your feet, there's plenty of room for all!
Garden We've already mentioned the house gardens, the miles of tree-lined walkways, ornamental flower beds, sculpture walks, miles of estate roads and tracks to walk the dogs on, access to the beach... But did we mention the fabulous Cricket Ground with thatched pavilion... also in the grounds?! Parking Parking for 2 cars outside the Penthouse entrance.
- There is only 1 x bathroom in the penthouse (with an above-bath shower) for all guests to share, and 1 x additional WC.
- There are no lifts to access the property, and the penthouse is only accessible via stairs (seven flights). Please do note, the entrance area has enough room to store buggies, but babies will require carrying.
- Please DO NOT take children under the age of 12 onto the roof terrace, safety is paramount, and this is not suitable for young guests.
- This is a dog-friendly home, however dogs are not aloud in either the drawing room or onto the roof terrace of The Penthouse
- Please DO NOT take red wine into the drawing room due to the risk of spillages
- One complimentary basket of logs will be provided for your stay (Nov - March). Feel free to bring your own for any extra.
- Depending on availability, you are able to rent both the main house, and the penthouse, at the same time - however if you have only rented the penthouse out, there may be guests in the main house during your stay too. There are many acres to explore, and you will all be welcomed to use the grounds for the duration of your stay.
- The penthouse is secure from the main house, so you will be able to come and go as you please with a separate entrance to the main house.
- As the building, and much of its contents, dates back to being hundreds of years old, this house is not 'pristine and perfect' so please do expect a touch of 'rustic charm'.
GOOD TO KNOW:
-The garden balustrades are deteriorating in some places. If you are wandering about the garden, please do be particularly aware of the stonework structures.
-Please do not climb the trees, they are precious and many are important specimens.
-No smoking inside please, but outside is fine.
-No fireworks here, we are in the National Park and have to comply to their best-practice please.
-There is no jetty here so you can't come by boat... helicopter is fine - plenty of landing space.
To access the penthouse you will climb around seven small flights of stairs (built around an old / un-useable lift structure).
There are good handrails on the way up, but you'll want to keep any prams downstairs. Don't be put off by the thought of having to do a little bit of exercise to get upstairs - the views are 100% worth the effort!!!!!
Free and 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. Logs are supplied in winter. We also supply a welcome pack with some treats to get you going for tea when you arrive. Enjoy!

If you can drag yourself away from the gardens, arboretum, lakeside walks and the beautiful cricket pitch - you could walk through the fields by the house and you’ll reach the East End Arms in a 20 minute amble, half of the trip is up the back drive.Insider's Guide >>
