Number Two, is a lovely holiday home rental in the heart of Lymington Town. The feel here is fresh and modern. We love that although it is central, it’s also very quiet and private, for those wanting to explore the New Forest with the convenience of town-living.
Lymington is often in The Times ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’. Number Two, is a town house within 15 seconds walk to the vibrant High Street or the St Barbe Museum and 3 minutes walk to the cobbled side streets of Old Town Quay (pictured above), a base by commercial fishing boats. Further on, you’ll find mile after mile of smart yachting marinas and sea wall footpaths to admire the boats from.
The house is part of a new gated development of 5 town mews houses, all with three storeys. There is a small courtyard to the front.
Downstairs you’ll find a bright, modern and well-equipped kitchen, a compact eating area that seats 6 and plenty of cooking, baking and serving paraphernalia. The hallway, stairs and living room are colourful, bright and smart. There are some quirky bits and pieces including miniature Eastport Pram sailing dinghy for a coffee table. There are masses of novels, reference and children’s books, and plenty of games to suit all ages.
Moving to the first floor there is a family bathroom and two bedrooms that wear bold wall paper; A library themed bedroom with a double bed, ensuite shower-room and juliette balcony, and a beach themed super king or twin bedroom.
The top floor is a bright and roomy hideaway with its own shower room and small private balcony (looking over the rooftops). There is a Kingsize bed, a sofa for reading and a small desk and chair for the business-person who has to close those deals, even while on holiday. There is plenty of room for a travel cot in this room and this is where the additional airbed can be set up.
The courtyard garden is leafy with a pagoda and climbing greenery, fairy lights and plenty of potted plants. It is big enough to host a BBQ with table and chairs to seat six, plus a carved chair and a practical bench with storage space. There is a chiminea and room to secure bicycles hidden from view. If you want town gardens and outdoor space to play the nearest public gardens and play are close by.
Babies and children welcome. 2 travel cots, 2 highchairs, a stairgate, baby mat and toys are provided. There is a super cloth tent for indoor ‘camping’ adventures.
Couples, families with teenagers and those wanting to escape the country, or ‘do’ the country from a town base. The Berthon marina is 3 minutes walk for yachties.
It is flat from the garage to the doorstep and a 30 second walk. There is a small step into the house.

The location here is amazing. You can walk to everything. Good foodie places are all around you. Take a train into the National Park for some time out and walk back. It’s all so easy. Coastal walks from here are superb.
The shopping in Lymington is very good and the Saturday market is metres from the front door.
There are masses of independent shops – great to fossick about in, plus Quba, Joules, Henri Lloyd. Designer Vintage is amazing for second hand top brands. According to Vogue, we even have one of the best small fashion boutiques outside of London – Stanwells.
There are masses of fabulous cafes to choose from in the town.
