WE ARE AWAITING AN UPDATED PHOTOSHOOT AT THE HOUSE IN MID MAY..

A picture perfect cottage for 4, only a 20 minute walk through the forest to a lovely wild beach or 10 minutes walk to a gastro pub. The lane itself is a firm favourite of the local donkeys, the garden is private and gets wonderful afternoon sun. Fifty metres from the front door is the National Park heathland and from there you can walk for miles and miles. What’s not to love?

Rowes Lane is one of the quirky little areas of the New Forest that are a pleasure to find. The donkeys that live locally here often sleep overnight outside the house. There is a farm at the end of the no-through lane and only about 15 cottages and houses, with forest and fields behind them on all sides. It’s a genial spot.

The cottage has had a total renovation 8 years ago. The owner is Norwegian and her clean and uncluttered style shines forth. The kitchen, bathroom and hallway have underfloor heating. Bedrooms are styled on ‘less is more’ and are very comfortable. No pets here please. This house suits those who have allergies.

The garden is having a new deck/terrace area, new lighting, new furniture ready for early July 2021.

A South Coast Cottages Collection House
South Coast Cottages is the sister-brand of New Forest Escapes.
These houses are chosen because they are comfortable, premium and within 45 minutes drive of the coast. 

more about this place...

Inside:

Walk in through the main front door into a small hallway. From there on your right is the open plan living/dining room which is a good size and well set up for guests. It feels lovely and light in here because in the renovation bifold doors were added. This is where the deck/terrace renovation is happening this spring ready for guests in May 2021.

The kitchen is practical and smart. There is plenty to cook with. The kitchen table seats 4. Do bring any juicers or mixers that you might need.

The bedroom and bathroom pictures here are indicative. The rooms are a reasonable size. You can put a travel cot in either. The bathroom has a shower and bath and is smart, sparkly and in great condition.

Outside:

The pretty cottage garden is mainly laid to lawn, south west facing and well fenced. It picks up the afternoon and evening sun well and can get really toasty by the house. The terrace area by the bifold sitting room doors gets really warm. Fold the doors back and bask in the sunshine in the house. It’s a glorious spot.

There is a bike shed that you can lock. The parking is easy to access from the lane. It will fit all but the very large 4×4 cars.

Home Truths: 

The donkeys and ponies that live wild in this area will be ready to get into the garden the moment you leave the gate open. Watch out. They’re cute but cunning!

Accessibility:

The house is single story with no steps inside. The shower has no specific set up for those with mobility challenges but it is a good size. There is a small step up into the house through the front door.

what makes this special...

We love the location here. You’re between Lymington (with all it’s shops, marinas and foodie options) and Beaulieu (think a perfectly-pretty red-brick village and estate with all the trimmings – and a car museum). Your local shops compete for eccentricity. They’re both great. East Boldre and Pilley stores are equidistant. Ponies and donkeys often hover at the door of both…

Exploring from here on foot is great. Fifty metres from the front door and you’re out into the National Park heathland, you’ll pass a lily pond, miles of heath dotted with ponies and donkeys, past ancient forests (we love Gypsy Wood with it’s rope swings and massive oaks) or the Hollies, great for picnics and feeling like you’re miles from everywhere. Walking to the beach from here is a treat. The footpath takes you through the forest and out toward a lovely wild beach at Tanners Lane.

The nearest pub is the East End Arms, a well known gastro pub. A 10 minute walk along the lane.

the location...

The area between Lymington and Beaulieu is a coveted place to live. Very quiet, very rural, the roads are full of the roaming ponies, donkeys and cattle. There are a few local Post Offices where you can buy a selection of veg, bread, milk, papers, choc', and other essentials such as SPAM (!) and local honey. The nearest shop is in East Boldre village 2 miles away. Don't miss Pilley Stores too. They have a gramaphone playing outside in summer...

The local pub is the East End Arms - 1/2 mile down the lane, or The Turfcutters (a local favourite with usually more dogs than people in it) 2 miles across the heath.

The nearest long sandy beach is Milford on Sea, 8 miles away. The nearest beach for walking is Tanners which is 20 minutes through the wood and down the lane.

Lymington is 3.5 miles away.

Lymington is often in The Times ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’.  Obviously we are totally biased and agree. It is marvellous. The quality of life here is very good. The town is surrounded by National Park to the north, coastal otherwise. There is a good mix of industry (boats) and retail. Less obvious is the connection to the rural workings of the National Park itself.

The community here is very diverse in its interests and the town really does make sure that everyone is catered to…it is always busy with something going on from the Saturday market to St Barbe Museum, with multiple play parks and of course cafe and restaurants galore. And if you manage to get through all that, then you could always jump on the ferry to the Isle of Wight – just a short 30 minute journey across the Solent.
