This wonderful bolt hole has just come available to let in 7th July 2018. We are still waiting the full photoshoot but for those wanting a sneak peak, here you go…

Calling all romantics, walkers, wanderers and design lovers. Come hither. This place is for you.

Perched in perfect privacy at the end one of the Royal Lymington Yacht Club dinghy yard, this tiny home packs some design punch. It is owned by Alice and Henning Stummel, whose London home ‘The Tin House’ was in Season 4 of Grand Designs, the RIBA House of the Year. Their ‘rescued boat shed’ has been repurposed with the same playful and minimalist style.

Whilst the areas bustles with boat-y life and small town vibrancy, this spot doesn’t. Stay here for peace and quiet. The trees shield you from neighbours and the view full of boat masts, sea birds and the Lymington ferry bumbling past in the distance. Open the garden gates out the front for a short-cut into the boat yard and coastal path. The Sea Water Baths in the Lymington Lido are just in front of you.

Walk ‘not-quite-next-door’ to great food and the town, walk west to big skies and wild beaches.

Whilst perfect for couples, those with kids in tow need to be aware that the single bed here is mezzanine

You’re welcome to bring your own boat for sailing. Access for dinghys and Optimists is through the garden to get to the public slipway next to the Royal Lymington Yacht club which is available for guests. The house doesn’t come with a berth, so your boat will have to be kept on the driveway. A small RIB will have to be driven around to the slipway. Or hire a RIB or boat locally.

For the low down on Lymington, here’s our Insiders Guide.

Owner Alice says, “We live in a utilitarian style, pared-down, simple and functional. We only have what we need and find that the decluttering allows for more freedom in such a small space” .

The space here is used to a premium with the kitchen area set into a wall of cupboards. Even the bed here is multi-use. You’ll find a very smart Queen sized sofa-bed for your evenings rest, with everything you need for it, smartly folded and ready to go.

Walk out of your private access into the Royal Lymington Yacht Club dinghy yard, out along the coastal path. Head east past The Mayflower pub (excellent for food), meander through the bigger boat marina’s and you’ll get to the cobbled town quay with cafes and more pubs, then 1 minute further to our favourite Greedo cafe. Go West  and pass Yachthaven bar and cafe (very good), then out of town for bigger skies, wilder walks, long beaches and the occasional cafe.

Had enough of the coast? Want a day inland? Leaving and need a plan for the way home? How about heading off by train for a smart lunch and day out walking in the forest, we suggest walking to the train station at Lymington town, taking the 9 minute train across the National Park wilds to Brockenhurst and walking to The Pig Hotel. Well known and celebrated for it’s local menu, working walled gardens and country-house style.

Families/Extra guests

We supply a travel cot, high chair and a small selection of kids toys and books.

The kitchen table seats 4. Should you have guests visiting, there is another table for 8 outside.

The third bed is a high, single bed above the bathroom in the eaves…it has a fishing net to stop you falling out. Two kids can sleep top to tail but make sure you fasten them in. The steps are vertical.

Accessibility.

The Boatshed is perched on 1.5m high stilts. There is a ramp for access and there are no steps. The door is wide enough for wheelchairs. The bathroom is small, narrow and has no specific grab rails etc for those with challenged mobility.

You can park the car within 30 metres. The track is flat but cobbled and not even.

What makes this special...

We love not washing up! Eat out for nearly every meal! Head east past The Mayflower pub (excellent for food), meander through the bigger boat marina’s and you’ll get to the cobbled town quay with cafes and more pubs, then 1 minute further to our favourite Greedo cafe. Go West and pass Yachthaven bar and cafe (very good), then out of town for bigger skies, wilder walks, long beaches and the occasional cafe.

The walking from here is superb.

We love Hurst Castle (boat out, walk back) to blow any cobwebs away. There is a great cafe there too. Or head along the coastal path through Milford on Sea beach out toward the golden sands of Highcliffe and plenty of cafe options along the way. There is a good bus service to get you home again. Read our blog about the walk here.

theLocation...

Milford on Sea is a lively and picturesque village just a few miles from the market town of Lymington.  It sits on the coast and has extensive beach front which is sandy at low tide.

The village green is surrounded by great cafe’s, local independent shops, a butchers and a smattering of some really lovely wine bars and restaurants. Just a few minutes walk away is the extensive beach that runs both south to the renowned Hurst Castle (approx a mile and a half) or North (for a very long way!).

The beach is always bustling in the summer months with windsurfers, kite surfers, kayakers and paddle boarders, plus swimmers enjoy the quick swim to the sandbar where groups gather to chat or splash around in the surf.  Nestled just back fro the beach, the nature reserve is worth a walk through. It can be accessed along the stream through the centre of the village and winds up to the back of the houses and gardens. There are a few good rope swings for the young ones along the way. Wellies a must in the winter!

top picksTo do whilst you're here...

  • Lymington Sea Water Baths
    Lymington Sea Water Baths

    Open over the summer months, this place is an eccentric joy. The water is cold, so hire a wetsuit or brave it. You can swim or go mad on the 110 metres floating obstacle course (bit like Top Gear on water) – perfect for teens. There is also a smaller splash pool and sand pit for little kids. Good changing room options and fabulous ice cream too. Charges are very reasonable.

    Remember, New Forest Escapees receive one free coffee for each group from the kiosk too!

    For opening time and entry charges visit their website.

  • Lymington Saturday Markets
    Lymington Saturday Markets

    Lymington has a thriving and very popular Saturday market. Over 90 stall holders congregate and the road is closed for most of the day.

    It takes up almost the entire high street, is very busy and popular with locals. Stall holders include local artists, crafts people, furniture, plants,  but best of all, it’s foodie heaven – cakes, cheeses, breads, deli bits and bobs, meat, pies, drinks.

    For more information about Lymington and the market click here.

     

  • The Sea Wall Coastal Walk
    The Sea Wall Coastal Walk

    A fantastic walk on fairly level, gravel paths with amazing sea views. Also very good for bird spotting. The walk is 9 miles long but you can make it much shorter. The full walk takes approximately 2 hours. There are lots of cafe’s and pubs on the way and you can either walk back or jump on the bus!

    It can be windy so make sure you wear suitable clothing!
