Additional Location Information
The Georgian market town of Lymington is set on the coast in the beautiful New Forest National Park, between Southampton and Bournemouth. Famous for its sailing history, there are two large marinas filled with fishing boats and yachts, as well as two sailing clubs. The townâ€™s narrow streets are lined with pretty period cottages and houses, as well as plenty of local pubs and restaurants.
Lymington High Street has several independent shops and designer boutiques, as well as a local market held each Saturday which dates back to the 13th century. At the bottom of the High Street, a cobbled road leads down to the Old Town Quay, which is still used by a number of commercial fishing boats. There is often a chance to buy fresh fish on the waterfront. From here you can take a stroll along the waters edge and soak up the atmosphere of this renowned sailing resort.
Our apartment provides a great opportunity to stay in a unique, desirable and attractive property in the best part of Lymington. It offers all the convenience of the lively High Street yet it does not suffer from noise issues.
Restaurants and supermarkets can be found in the immediate vicinity. The harbour is a five minute walk away. Parks, an open air swimming pool and leisure centre are located close by.
The location gives easy access to the delightful towns, villages and wildlife of The New Forest. Brockenhurst train station (direct line to Waterloo) is one stop from Lymington Town Station.
Here's a taster of the many attractions in the area:
Lymington Sea Water Baths: sea water baths open daily to swimmers from May to September. Children's paddling pool and sandpit also available
Yarmouth Castle (4 miles away): take a ferry trip from Lymington across to the Isle of Wight and see the remains of a C16th coastal fort as well as a wonderful picnic spot, historic Yarmouth exhibition and a C16th shipwreck
Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum (New Milton, 5 miles away). This spectacular motorcycle museum houses over 350 rare and classic motorcycles, many being the only remaining examples in the world.
Breamore Manor House Countryside Museum (near Fordingbridge) with its children's maze and attractions for all the family.
Exbury Gardens (outside Beaulieu): home to a large beautiful garden and steam railway. There are over 20 miles of pathways, three woods and parkland to explore, and surprises lying await behind every corner. There is something to see all year round.
Beaulieu National Motor Museum and Beaulieu Abbey and Beaulieu Palace House (7 miles away): this great family day out heart of the New Forest attraction has something for everyone from motoring to heritage and history to rides. 250 vehicles in the motor museum, living history in Palace house and unlimited rides on the monorail and bus make a day for the whole family
Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary (10 miles away): Spotting deer in the New Forest isn't always easy, but at Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary there is a purpose built viewing platform overlooking a large meadow area where a herd of fallow deer regularly gather.
Burley Deer Park Safari: tractor and trailer rides to see Red Deer in the village of Burley
Puffin Cruises: offer ferry rides and cruises from Lymington Quay. The best trip is an exhilarating surge across the Solent to the Isle of Wight, where the Needles lighthouse and towering chalk stacks loom from the water. They also do a two-hour sunset cruise in high summer

Buckler's Hard (outside Beaulieu): a private maritime 18th ship building village. Offers the chance to discover all about how ships were made and launched here using New Forest timber

The apartment is very centrally located off Lymington High Street, literally steps from many fantastic pubs and restaurants, and a supermarket that's open til 10pm if you prefer to eat in. The parking space is a short walk behind the shops - less than 1 minute, but might be worth considering for those who are less mobile or if you have lots of luggage, especially given that you have to go up external stairs to get into the apartment. The parking space can also probably take 2 cars provided they're not too long. Once inside, the apartment is beautifully presented and quite spacious, although 5 adults might be quite cosy if you were all wanting a comfy seat to watch tv. The kitchen isn't huge but is equipped with everything you'd need, including tea, coffee and sugar. Having the washing machine is really useful, but again, if you are using all the bedrooms, you might be a bit tight on drying space unless you don't mind having your pants in the middle of the lounge (it's a washer-dryer, so that should help). Just in case it's not clear from the description, there are 2 toilets, one in the bathroom and one separate. The bathroom is stunning, and has a tv in there for bubbly lounging. However, the shower is just a little impractical, as the curtain is circular so it's hard to position bottles etc where you won't soak the floor. Still not bad though! The service was great throughout, from keeping me up-to-date through the booking process to following up after arrival. There is an electronic key pad, which means you don't see a human being to 'check-in'. The owner/manager is actually based elsewhere and employs a local housekeeper to prepare the apartment (who even put beautiful big bouquets of fresh flowers in all the rooms). It was a little odd, not seeing a person throughout the stay, but it also contributed to the feeling of being at home while on holiday. We found the whole place a great base to explore the New Forest and Isle of Wight.

My friend and I stayed at this Lymington apartment for a long weekend. From the outside, it appears to be a very ordinary flat above a shop, but it's a completely different matter once you step inside. The accommodation has been beautifully decorated in neutral tones; stylish yet cosy, with all mod cons and much attention to detail throughout. The apartment, which has its own parking space very close by, is situated on Lymington High Street, so you are just a minute away from shops, restaurants and cafés. The harbour is a few minutes' walk away and the apartment is well-placed for exploring the wonderful New Forest.

From the moment we enquired about the apartment Liz was very efficient in coming back to us with full clear details of the apartment and organisation of the booking. The apartment is really charming, Liz states that she has tried to achieve a home from home and they really have, there was nothing lacking and we were very comfortable from the moment we stepped through the door. Although the apartment is above the High Street no noise filtered through even when the Saturday market was setting up! Lymington has everything for convenience you could need, we had great food while we were there, Egans Restaurant and Stanwell House Hotel both had great fish dishes and good value for money in stylish surroundings, we felt very spoilt that weekend! We have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to friends and family or considering using it again ourselves.
“A lovely, clean & comfortable apartment with close car parking.”

We stayed at this apartment over Easter 2013. It is very clean & comfortable and well situated for Lymington & other New Forest villages and attractions.
It was very easy to book, a good experience all round and we would definitely recommend to friends and family. There is a car parking space about 2 mins away which is a real bonus.
