Handpicked guest offers

We’ve started to build a stable of tempting offers from our favourite companies in the local area.

Information on how you can claim your offer is in our ‘Area Guide’ and in the ‘Customer Login’ area of our website. We’ll send you this when you’ve booked in with us.



Limewood Hotel. This famous spa needs no introduction. Part of the Limewood Hotel, itself a New Forest institution, the spa is often noted in articles rating the worlds best spas. We love this place and can vouch for the bubbly, warm, peace and quiet in the various tree-view pools, the immaculate pools and the fantastic treatments.

We have 15% off midweek (Mon to Friday)  spa treatments for our guests at Pitts Deep and Gins Barn and thoroughly recommend that you take up the offer.

You can learn on the Limewood website here.

Eating out

The Master Builders Hotel in Bucklers Hard have offered our guests 10% off food – what a treat!

Just take along your discount card – which we’ll leave in the house ready for you when you arrive.

Food is fresh and seasonal with good wine and ales. They also do hand stretched pizza in the Yachtsman’s Bar & Gardens, with a paper and a pint of Ringwood Best Bitter. But the best thing here is that it’s perfect for families. Just out of the door through the pub are the grassy lawns and boaty walks of Bucklers Hard. There’s more on our blog here. 

The Shipyard – Bar & Kitchen

This new (in mid 2016) place has a great reputation with the locals already. Some of whom are quite spoilt, which must mean the food here is pretty darn good.

Our guests get a 20% discount off dinner between 18:00 & 19:00 on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. Make sure you book. Tel: 01590 677 705

Anchor House, Bath Road, Lymington, Hampshire SO41 3YL


The Haven Bar 

This is one of our favourite family stops after the sea wall walk. Come rain or shine this place is always busy and has a great vibe. There is a fairly wind-free deck for summer Solent viewing and a super smart winter fire beside giant sofas. 

Our guests get 5% discount on all food & drink. 

Lymington Yacht Haven, Lymington SO41 3QD

The main restaurant here has amazing views of the marina, and they do a cracking breakfast too… but we don’t get a discount here yet!)


Farm shop delivery service.

Farmers Choice, are a Hampshire based company who supply super high quality local fish and meat, veg and meals by a box scheme direct to your holiday fridge or doorstep – most is sourced along the south coast within 25 miles of our houses.

We have a discount code for you to use and you’ll get £20 off your order.

We interviewed them at length when we met up and grilled them about their suppliers and their farm to fork supply chain. They are themselves a family business and they buy from local farmers, many small producers who can’t attend markets or sell on a large scale because they are too busy growing and caring for their plants and animals. This was music to my ears because, having grown up on a farm myself, I know how much work it takes to do it right.

Please do support this company and their farmers. The food is free range and/or organic and compares well with supermarket prices. It is delivered direct to your holiday house.

And to drink….

Solent Cellar has kindly offered our guests a 10% discount on wine. They will help you choose over the phone if necessary and can deliver your wine straight to the house you’ve rented through us.

We’ve done our homework. They are a specialist, independent wine merchant in Lymington. Owners Simon and Heather are always available for friendly tastings and friendly advice.

Simon has over ten years of experience in the wine trade and is regarded for his good taste. Heather trained as a chef at Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland and has since worked for Masterchef winner 2009 Mat Follas, and has enjoyed a brief stage with Michel Roux Jnr at Le Gavroche. Their broad experience helps them offer a food and wine matching service.

That’s £19.20 off a 2 hour kayak trip on the Beaulieu River for 6. Normally £192 but reduced to £172.80.
(Normal price £32 per person, reduced to £28.80 )

I have personal experience of how good they are. (Grumpy, cold, pre-teen on a kayak trip one cold March was turned into cold, happy, curious learner).

Kayak trips are particularly good and if there’s enough of you (min 6) they may pick you up from the private jetty at Gins Barn.  They also do bush crafts, archery, ropes, canoeing, raft building and specialise in family group bookings. Watch their video here.
