LYMINGTON, HAMPSHIRE, is a much loved Georgian town on the south coast with many good pubs and restaurants all around. The historic High Street (bustling Saturday market), town station and quay are a short pretty walk from the cottage.
THE NEW FOREST NATIONAL PARK with wild ponies, cattle, donkeys, deer and gorgeous walks/rides is a short drive away.
THE SEA: MILFORD-ON-SEA is the nearest beach. Highcliff, Mudeford, Boscombe, Southbourne and Bournemouth beaches a bit further away and well worth visiting.
We meet guests and show them round whenever possible. Occasionally we ask our housekeeper to step in and introduce ourselves as soon as possible. We live just around the corner and are on hand for any problem that might possibly occur.
We have flyers in the cottage about local attractions, we email guests with ideas about what to do when they are staying and we point them to the guest feedback file which is brim full of further ideas.
