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 town’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.
