A lovely little house in a tucked away location, a well appointed kitchen perfect for holiday needs. We loved being able to walk out the front door and along the sea wall to the beach, and to watch the little boats go by. Fantastic if you like watching sea life, all sorts of birds seen! Great for a spot of crabbing also. Amazingly helpful host, whoRead more went out of her way to help us when needed. And I can't forget the local pub, probably worthwhile booking for food though at weekends!! Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Southerly. The location is peaceful and quiet and the cottage is very comfortable and homely. We enjoyed walking along the seafront and there are lots of cafes and shops in Milford on Sea which is a 5 min car ride or a 20 min walk. There is a lovely dog friendly pub, almost next door, convenient for lunch and dinneRead morer, with a beautiful garden. Hide

Lovely little house, comfortable and so very clean. Excellent location for walkers, cyclists, dog walkers and old biddies like me. The area is great and we were lucky with the weather in February, one day we could actually sit in the sun!

We have stayed at Southerly on a number of occasions and are never disappointed with the location and space inside the house. It is mainly peaceful too and the little garden/patio is a bonus as it is sheltered. We love Milford beach just to watch the waves, but a trip further along the coast to Highcliffe house is worth it with its lovely grounds, Read moretakeaway cafe and sandy beach at the end of a coastal path. With the sea and the New Forest nearby, Southerly is a great base for holiday. Hide

Nicely located, clean and warm and with everything that is needed for a family holiday. Car parking for two vehicles right outside the house for easy access. We would have no hesitation in going back again.
