This is a lovely cottage, was very warm and cosy this time of year - February. Everything you need is in the house. It is well situated for the town, pubs and walks along the quay and sailing club. Very nicely decorated with plenty of space and has such a warm feeling about it.

Reviewed by Linda, 12th January 2019

The property is in an ideal location close to all the amenities of Lymington but with the bonus of being able to walk from the door straight onto the shore line of the Solent. There was plenty of living space and a large kitchen table to sit round for meals and games in the evenings. The kitchen was particularly well equipped with all the essentialRead mores and more.
