Part of our South Coast Cottages Collection
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. 

Perfect for groups who want a base to explore from. Whether you are travelling by foot, bike or by car, staying here gives you easy access to the National Park and lots of beaches along the coast. Walk there in under 25 mins. Lymington town is a 10 minute walk to the top end of the high street.

The feel here is of a relaxed family home. It’s clutter free and well set up for holidaymakers. Downstairs is smart, comfortable and the sitting room is a good size. Upstairs two bedrooms are bigger and the third has a truckle pull out bed.

Dogs and children are welcome here. The house is set back from the road behind two sets of gates which means that only Houdini’s will get anywhere near escaping. There is a small and well planted garden to the front which gets masses of summer sun. From June onwards the existing garden house is going to be moved and set up as an outdoor seating area.

Picnics on the New Forest heath are 15 minutes walk away. You can cycle here too. Walk to the beach 25 minutes away, or cycle there via various lanes and tracks in 15 minutes. We love the cycle toward Keyhaven on the footpaths. The little beaches here are just so lovely, particularly the ones you reach by bike or foot.
By car you can reach Keyhaven village in 5 minutes. This is fabulous for boat trips to Hurst Castle.  Slightly further on are the lovely Milford on Sea beaches.

more about this place...

Downstairs

The kitchen is sleek and sparkly with a kitchen table. You can get 6 around the table, perfect for the whole family to sit together. The sitting room is almost the full width of the house. The sofas are large and modern and are perfect for a box set binge on the giant 55” inch smart TV.

Upstairs

There are 3 bedrooms. Choose from the master bedroom (Bedroom 2) which is next door to the family bathroom with a giant bath. The second master bedroom (Bedroom 1) has an ensuite bathroom with a very good shower). This bedroom, like the main master, has views over the garden at the front. The third bedroom has the single bed and a solid truckle bed. You can easily fit a travel cot in here if just the one bed is used.

Outside

There is good parking inside the main full gate for 2 large cars. There is a second gate to the main garden, so cars, people and dogs are very much separate. You can fit another car in the driveway if you need, or park out on the street, where there are no parking restrictions.

Hometruths

There is no back garden, the house garden is at the front. This has been redeveloped in spring 2021 and now has a small terraced area with lovely new rattan corner sofa, table with extra chairs which is super stylish and great for al fresco dining.

what makes this special...

This is a brilliant location for a holiday house. Particularly those with older children will really enjoy it because those with children who seek independence can cycle and walk from here to the local shops and nearby park. Exploring the coast and forest by bike is a little further and they will have to cross or cycle on a B road.

The beaches at Milford on Sea are 10 minutes drive to the west. At mid-low tide golden sand is revealed and at very low tides, a sand bar makes a shallow warm lake for children to paddle in.

For older kids, go to Highcliffe for small surf. Mudeford and Hengitsbury Head and beaches are also very special.

Read real reviews from guests that have stayed with us at Woodpecker House

This house is new to us in spring 2021. The owner and his partner have worked really hard to produce the house to the standard that you see here. As always, we visit and offer help at every stage of the house setup. The owners partner has a real flair for interiors and it's been a pleasure to photograph this house and offer it to you.

the location...

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.
