The Old Post Office is a seaside and pet friendly holiday home in Keyhaven near Milford on Sea.
Sleek and chic, the Old Post Office is surrounded on two sides by seaside-y views. To the left sit the little blue boats in the Keyhaven boat harbour and sweeping across the front are the bird-filled salt marshes of the Solent. The WWII fort Hurst Castle, and the chalky Isle of Wight Needles are two miles away across the sea.
The style is cool, calm and muted. There are lots of sea greens, royal blues, cream and stripes abound, nothing competes with the pretty view, which is with you in almost every room.
Curious families with small children will love the boat yard, crabbing and beaches, the ferry trip to Hurst Castle for hide and seek, history, views and the café. Best of all is the sandy beach that is revealed as the tide goes out. For those with teens, this is one of our best houses because the cycling from here is so safe to Lymington on the back tracks, and the Lymington Salt Water pools (20 mins away) with a floating 110 metre assault course is completely brilliant and mad.
Foodies are spoilt here with good options in every direction. You can walk to all of them.
One dog is allowed here. The coastal paths go east and west, the nearest beaches allow dogs and so does Hurst Castle.
