Celebratory meals are usually a big part of family get togethers. But often rental houses have small dining tables. Not so here. Central in the house is the dining room. It’s big and the table seats 12 easily. To the left is a separate, light and airy kitchen, so cooks producing treats can do so with their own space. Come morning tho’ you’ll all be around the kitchen table there too. It also seats 8.
The accommodation is set with 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and 2 upstairs, plus the snug/playroom can be transformed into another bedroom using the sofa bed – which makes this property extremely versatile for multi generation families or family friends.
With a paddock out the back and a large garden area, this house is set up for families to stay in, or explore. Marvellous.
Lymington itself is often noted as one of the ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’ and the high street is vibrant through the year with plenty of independent shops, miles of marinas along the coast, the ferry to the Isle of Wight. There are plenty of good places to eat. For informal we love The Larder, for upmarket go to The Pig, for an all out treat go to Limewood Hotel.
