Combining character features with contemporary style, this spacious property has an outdoor pool, hot tub and an enviable location close to the bustling waterside town of Lymington

This charming detached cottage is tucked back from the main road heading into Lymington, on the southern edge of the New Forest National Park. Endless walking and cycling routes can be found in the local area, taking in the stunning landscape the forest is renowned for. You may even spot some of the resident ponies and cattle roaming the heathland. The vibrant centre of Lymington is a short distance away and has a great selection of pubs, cafes and boutique shops set around its pretty harbour. Why not take the ferry to the Isle of Wight, try your hand at sailing or perhaps head to Salisbury, which as a Cathedral city offers great amenities as well as being rich in history.

From the gravelled gated parking area a path and steps lead you to the main entrance, which opens into a spacious and welcoming hallway. The calming colours and character features are sure to make you feel right at home. The versatile accommodation is quirky in layout, with many changes of level, beams and low ceilings giving a hint to its age. Immediately to your left is the inviting lounge, which has an inglenook fireplace with biofuel fire and a Smart TV. Heading across the hallway steps lead up into a stylish dining room, ideal for family meals. Next is a bright and airy king-size bedroom with contemporary en-suite bathroom with bath and WC. Heading back across the dining room is a double bedroom with a compact walk in en-suite wet room with shower and WC. Also off of the hallway is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. Returning back to the main entrance you will find the stylish kitchen is down a step from the hallway and is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer microwave and dishwasher. A cosy snug area offers additional seating off of the kitchen with TV and from here you will find a useful ground floor WC. Once back in the kitchen, a charming set of narrow cottage style stairs lead up to the landing on the first floor, where you will find a bathroom with WC. Adjacent is a double bedroom and at the opposite end of the landing is a further double bedroom with en-suite shower room with shower and WC. Leading up from here is a narrow and steep set of stairs (may not be suitable for the elderly or children), which leads to a double bedroom with en-suite shower room with shower and WC and a cosy twin bedroom set into the eaves.

Heading outside from the main entrance you will find a lawn wrapping around the property. A sunny terrace is ideally placed for trying out the gas BBQ and enjoying lazy meals at the table and chairs. Adjacent to here is a heated swimming pool (available 1st March - 31st October), summer house and hot tub, the perfect spot to spend relaxed afternoons. For the younger members of the group there is outdoor table tennis and a trampoline to enjoy. To the side of the property is a parking area suitable for up to five cars.
