The Ploughmans Cottage is a family friendly, pet friendly holiday cottage in East End, a pretty hamlet, near Lymington in the New Forest.
This house is 2 parts stretch-limo-living and 2 parts ‘the good life’…1km from the beach… It’s designed to be a relaxing, interesting family base from which to conduct marvellous ‘Swallows and Amazons’ adventures – for the all the family.
Many guests celebrate 70th/80th birthdays and come for family escapes.
Next door, the gastro pub The East End Arms is perfect for special family meals, or those who need to escape to ‘walk the dog’ and have time out with the papers!
The beach here is sand, shingle and silt for the salt marshes.
In 2014 Ploughmans was No. 2 in The Times Travel supplement for Best Family Self-Catering in their Castles, Cottages and Cabins article.
