Magnolia Cottage is the perfect location for a quiet romance à deux or simply enjoying life’s pleasures with a couple of close friends, our sought-after offering is small but perfectly formed with two bedrooms, three baths and two terraces – one to catch the sun all day and one to watch it set.

Deep in the forest, nestled in 15 acres of landscaped grounds Magnolia Cottage has a quaint charm that’s irresistibly inviting. Close to the sea with lots of charming local villages and towns, a country abode that makes the most of every season.

The house is one of three uniquely enchanting properties on the Heathfield Estate. Whether you’re looking for a small family holiday, a memorable weekend or inviting lots of friends for a special celebration, Heathfield Estate has plenty to offer. Collectively or individually the three properties can host between 4 to 36 guests – view The Coach House which accommodates up to 8 guests and for the main Heathfield House, please contact us for more information.

what makes this special...

No effort has been spared here and this small place packs a luxury punch that most little places don’t.

We love the quiet in the morning, taking in a cup of tea on the patio whilst listening to (slightly batty) Radio Solent and enjoying the peace of the forest in this superb location.

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 it’s 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.
