A charming cottage with a wood burner and garden, centrally located in this pretty coastal village. Located a stones’ throw from the beach and amenities, it’s the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday.

Set in a pretty terrace in the centre of Milford on Sea, this former fisherman’s cottage is full of character and is ideally situated for visiting both the coast and village centre, which are within walking distance. Milford on Sea itself has a choice of restaurants, pubs and shops for those essential supplies as well a popular pebble beach with views of the Isle of Wight. Nearby Lymington, with its cobbled streets and strong maritime heritage is a haven for water sports enthusiasts and with the New Forest National Park on your doorstep, you will find this picturesque area has an abundance of pretty towns and villages, which are ideal for walking and cycling.

A path runs around the side of the property to the main door. On entering the property you are met with a cosy snug giving access to the lounge on the left, which is the perfect spot to relax and watch a film as it has a wood burner, TV and DVD. Leading off of the snug to the right is a bright and airy kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped with a range style electric oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. A door leads from here to the garden. An adjacent utility area houses the washing machine and tumble dryer and leads to a wet room with shower and WC. Rising from the snug are the steep cottage stairs with restricted head height in some areas, leading to a twin bedroom at the front of the house and a double bedroom to the rear, which has an open-plan en-suite with a freestanding slipper bath and WC.

Venturing outside you will find a private garden with pretty patio, garden furniture and a summer house. Located directly outside of the kitchen, it’s the perfect spot for enjoying a drink or light meal outdoors. Allocated off-road parking for one car is available opposite the property.

We had a lovely stay at Joyful cottage with our 2 cocker spaniels Bella & Sherlock - they enjoyed playing in the garden and long walks by the beach every day. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a perfect location to explore both Milford on sea and the surrounding area. Will definitely return!

Joyful Cottage is located in a quiet seaside village, perfect for unwinding from busy lives. The village is quiet but has all youll need: little supermarkets, variety of restaurants and pubs, chemist and little shops. We didnt take our dogs in the end but the cottage was well equipped for dogs. A lovely comfortable and cosy cottage.

The position of the cottage is very convenient for beach shops and pubs/restaurants. Just about everything you need is provided including dishwasher tabs and ground coffee. The road is very busy and care needs to be taken when getting dogs across the road to the pub car park where you must park.

Lovely cottage that is extremely dog friendly. We were welcomed with everything needed including fresh milk and biscuits and an array of doggy goods. It is well situated to explore the local areas but we found the road a tad nosy.
