Beautiful little hide away, great location to explore from!

From the word go communication was excellent. My partner and I wanted to relax and 'be off the grid' a bit, no WiFi and TV certainly helped. Lymington itself is a lovely seaside village and the Hut was close enough to walk but further away enough to be away from the action.
Thank you for organising our stay at short notice. We had a lovely couple of days and loved The Boat Shed. Highly recommended. A snug little den to rest between beautiful long walks. All in all it’s a wonderful place to stay. Many thanks Andy.
We stayed in the Boat Shed in Lymington with our 3 month old daughter and two sausage dogs (her first ever holiday). Sarah in particular was so helpful in suggesting lovely baby and dog friendly things to do and places to eat. She ensured we had everything we needed and offered her assistance throughout our stay. The Boat Shed was wonderfully peaceful and we loved the simplicity of it. It is beautifully located for lovely walks, stunning scenery and plenty to do, even in cold January.
Fabulous, stylish, secluded accommodation in Lymington, a delightful town on the edge of the New Forest. Sunday lunch at the pub a few doors down is not to be missed. All in all a great trip, expertly hosted. Thank you for accommodating us at The Boat Shed, we had a fab time and would re-book another visit in a heart beat. In fact we will when we get the opportunity!
We had a great short break at the Boat Shed. An excellent location for walking and just a short stroll into town. The 'Hut' is ideal for a couple. A little cosy at bed time for 2 children on the mezzanine but the living area is plenty big enough, well designed & the log burner ideal on a crisp Autumn evening. I would definitely recommend the Hut for a short stay any time of year. Whether you enjoyed sailing, walking or just as a retreat.

The team at New Forest Escapes are super helpful, the accommodation is relaxing and serene, located in amongst some of the the New Forests most popular destinations. Also great having the Mayflower pub right next door and Haven Bar close by.

What a beautiful and cleverly designed space. The pictures do not do it justice. It was much more spacious than we were expecting and the garden area is also a lovely size. We could see the sun rise through the windows in the morning and it is in such a great location for walks and short drives to explore other parts of the New Forest. Great pubs nearby and it was lovely being so close to the sea.

What a great little find. My 9 year old daughter and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Boat Shed. It was perfect for us. We found it in sparkling clean condition and the bathroom is surprisingly spacious for such a compact space. The kitchen had everything you need, even a proper oven, microwave which feels much more than it mentions in the description. The wood burning stove is perfect for the autumn evenings and heated the whole of the boat shed very efficiently. Outside, there are delightful lights that run around the bat shed and though the trees that make it feel very special. The boat shed is in a truly super location. You're a stones throw from the Solent where you can admire the yachts and take in all the boating activity around you, get an ice cream or go to the children's park.

Dear Robyn and Rachel. I just wanted to say thank you for being so last minute and flexible, allowing Flynn and myself to stay at the Boatshed. It was a bit of a dream come true, in away as we have watched so many of the "tiny houses" series and always wondered if we could experience the down sizing. It felt like luxury with very comfortable beds and lining plus we loved the thick fluffy towel - it felt wrong to even use the floor mat as a mat! We loved the way you could escape out the double gates at the back. As the weather was mixed over our couple of days, and we returned back to base a couple of times like drowned rats we were grateful to be able to light the log burner - would love to do a winter retreat here as log burner kicks out some heat! (I know you did warn us).

We had a fab holiday at the Boat Shed. A perfect little hideaway for a peaceful break. The Boat Shed is set down a beautiful leafy lane in the heart of Lymington. A very cosy little accommodation with all you need for your stay. Well equipped kitchen area with basic items provided, plus a welcome bottle of wine. Cosy large sofa bed. Small bathroom, but a great shower. Outside has a lovely little terrace. Very private and a great view of all the boats. The location is perfect. All the good restaurants and coffee bars are within walking distance. Also the Keyhaven nature reserve is a beautiful walk, with an abundance of Wildlife. We will definitely return to the Boat Shed and recommend it for a lovely little peaceful break.
