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’s central, it’s also very quiet and peaceful. Perfect for those wanting to explore the New Forest with the convenience of town-living. 

The house is part of a private, gated development of 5 town mews houses. There is no public access past the house except other residents. There is a small courtyard to the front perfect for outdoor eating and enjoying the sun.

Coastal walks from here are superb. In both directions you can wander for miles with great foodie places as destinations.

Lymington is a stylish and colourful market town, often voted ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’ in The Times. Number Two is less than a minute walk away from the vibrant High Street and the picturesque cobbled streets of the Old Town Quay are only three minutes away.  Further on, you’ll find mile after mile of smart yachting marinas and sea wall footpaths to admire the boats from.

 

more about this place...

The house is part of a new gated development of 5 town mews houses, all with three storeys. The property includes a private courtyard at the front, suitable for alfresco dining and barbecues in the summer months.

Downstairs you’ll find a 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 a 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. One is colourful with twin beds that can also joined to become a super king bed. The second is a light and airy double room with an ensuite, quirky library themed wallpaper and a Juliette balcony.

The top floor is a light, airy and roomy. It runs the whole width of the house and has its own shower room and small private balcony. There is a Kingsize bed, a sofa for reading and a small desk and chair for those who still need a space to work whilst away. There is plenty of room for a travel cot in this room and here 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.

Family

Babies and children welcome. Two travel cots, two highchairs, a stair gate, baby mat and toys are provided. There is a super cloth tent for indoor ‘camping’ adventures.

Best for…

Couples and families with older children and teenagers wanting freedom to explore the town. Also for those wanting a clean and stylish escape to the countryside from a town base. The Berthon marina is 3 minutes walk for yachties.

Accessibility

It is flat from the garage to the doorstep and a 30 second walk. There is a small step into the house.

what makes this special...

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 along The Solent Way which has amazing views of the Isle of Wight. Carry on to the beaches in Keyhaven at Hurst Spit.

The Saturday market is metres from the front door and is excellent. Monthly there is a French themed market for even more treats.

There are masses of independent shops 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. We love The Larder (3 mins walk from the front door) or further along the sea wall walk Yachthaven for an inside panoramic view of the marinas.

The water park at the Lido is THE place to be in the summer. Teens can walk there easily and safely from the house.

don't just take our word for it...

Lovely stay at No 2 in Lymington. House was beautifully furnished and well equipped although we were hardly there as the weather was so good! New Forest Escapes team very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely use them again.

Danah, Airbnb guestJune 2018

Just to say what a lovely night we had in Lymington. The house was fab and perfect for our girls gathering. Your recommendations were spot on and we had cocktails at Stanwells and a lovely meal at The Haven. Lymington itself is lovely and we are hoping to make it a yearly occurrence!

Number Two is a really well appointed house in a great location near the centre of Lymington, which we found had everything we needed for a great family weekend - plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 young children. The fenced off garden area was particularly useful with a walking 2-year old! We were lucky with the weather and one evening we used the BBQ which worked very well and stayed out in the garden area until about 10pm. Can't fault the accommodation which worked very well for us and everything provided was excellent. Lymington is a really picturesque town with a thriving Saturday market and the surrounding New Forest area is lovely. Would definitely stay at Number Two again!

David from Oxford

Excellent location both for Lymington and the New Forest. Both kids and adults really enjoyed our break. Everything in the house you could possibly need and very homely. Would recommend and be very happy to re-book.

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.
