This chic, artsy, relaxed cottage in East End has access to the open Forest directly opposite the driveway – for escapist walking and superb cycling.

The house is on one floor, has an open-plan kitchen and a well planted enclosed garden. The annex bedroom space is a perfect quieter space from the main house.

For days out – turn left to local beaches and right to The PIG (first of the acclaimed group) for a smart lunch. You can also walk home from here. 

We love that the house is opposite the most extraordinary group of ancient oaks that feature in forest folklore for hundreds of years. Gypsy Wood is a collection of over 100 huge trees on a small knoll surrounded by heathland, free-roaming wild deer, ponies, cattle and the occasional pig. It is an escapists’ heaven.

There are large groups of ponies and donkeys that live wild in this area. If you walk down the drive you’ll see them every day. If you leave the garden gate open – they’ll be in!  Please don’t!  Runners, walkers and cyclists (on and off road) will appreciate the location here. We love the walk to the beach and back – passing the (very good) East End Arms pub.

more about this place...

Emma’s home is full of beautiful details from statement fireplace to vintage American furniture, tailored leather corner sofa and an armchair in slate velvet, plus a collection of equine art.

The kitchen is well set up for cooking and entertaining and the kitchen table seats seven to eight. The annex bedroom is ideal for those wanting peace and quiet, such as new mums and dads, teenagers and grandparents. (Or those who’ve not finished their novel yet!) Our favourite bedroom is done in soft browns and rusts, it has Williamsburg American arch bed, (small at 4″6 but utterly lovely).

The garden

Your private outside space looks like a Country Living stylist put it together. Perfect for catching the sun and feels like your own oasis. 

Throw open the bi-folds and extend the kitchen onto a suntrap flagstone terrace, plus there are two smart sun loungers and picnic table at the end of the garden for sundowners.

The location is wonderful whatever time of year – after a walk down the beach on a cold winters day snuggle down with hot drinks or enjoy shade and private changing space when swimming in summer.

Family

You could fit a baby’s travel cot in one of the rooms, but it is a tight squeeze. However, this isn’t really a house for toddlers and small children

Best for…

Romantics, escapists, walkers, family breaks (with older children and teenagers).

Just so you know…

With high gardens fences on two sides, the house is private but has limited views.
There is no BBQ here. 

Accessibility

There are no steps from the parking area by the house to the doorstep, although there is a small step into the house. Once you’re in there are no steps in the house as it’s all on one level. Small wheelchairs are fine here, but the bathroom isn’t designed to be wheelchair friendly. To get to the cabin, through the back garden, there is a small lip out of the kitchen’s bifold doors, along a flat gravel path and a small step into the cabin.

what makes this special...

The walking opportunities – our favourite is heading across the heath and Forest to The PIG near Brockenhurst (takes about two hours, dodging ponies on the way). The food is fab and mostly grown and sourced within 25 miles.

Want to bring your horse to go riding on the Forest? You can. The owner’s stables are five minutes’ drive away.

The Maclean family. Easter 2019

Great accommodation, well appointed and very comfortable. Service and communication was excellent, including great tips for things to do, where to go e.t.c. Great fresh produce nearby, particularly Brockenhurst butcher and grocer. There was always something to do, but also a really cosy fire to sit next to if quiet time was preferred.

the location...

Lymington is often in The Times ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’.  Obviously we are totally biased and agree. It is marvellous. The quality of life here is very good. The town is surrounded by National Park to the north, coastal otherwise. There is a good mix of industry (boats) and retail. Less obvious is the connection to the rural workings of the National Park itself.

The community here is very diverse in its interests and the town really does make sure that everyone is catered to…it is always busy with something going on from the Saturday market to St Barbe Museum, with multiple play parks and of course cafe and restaurants galore. And if you manage to get through all that, then you could always jump on the ferry to the Isle of Wight – just a short 30 minute journey across the Solent.
