Big and arty, this spacious family friendly holiday home in Milford on Sea is the perfect summer holiday find. The area is quiet and private but just 10 minutes walk from the bustling foodie heaven village and local beach too!
The open kitchen/dining room is spacious and great for a home eating, this extends out to the sunny south facing garden too. The bedrooms are spread across the main house (2 doubles, 1 twin and a single) with an additional 2 double rooms (one with an additional single bed) both with bathrooms, one of which has its own separate entrance – great for those wanting a bit of quiet (one is also downstairs with its own private sitting room).
The garden is sizeable with a generous lawn plus there is a playhouse, climbing frame and wooded area for many an adventure. Chickens live in the garden here too.
Two bedrooms are suitable for small travel cots. The garden is not fully enclosed but the fencing is good enough to keep under 5’s in. There are plenty of toys and boardgames here. We provide 1 travel cot, 1 high chair.
There are sandy beaches that are uncovered at low tide clearly visible from where the Hurst Castle joins the land. Otherwise the shingly beaches at Milford are a 10 minute walk from the house.
Big, informal, multi-generational family gatherings where everyone spills over to the kitchen table, the kids go wild in the garden and everyone walks to the beach for picnics.
Safety for children
The fencing in the garden is good except in one area, which is easy to see from the kitchen table. The woodland area at the end of the garden is well fenced. .
There are wood piles in the wood which is accessed by paths from the bottom of the garden (you can easily see this path from the kitchen table). It is not safe to climb or play on any of the wood piles – parents must watch this.
There are chickens to the side of the garden which will be being looked after. A gardener will visit once a week. The are in a cage that they can’t get out of, and foxes can’t get in. Whilst they appreciate scraps of food from guests, they don’t need to be fed and definitely not let out.
Fronting onto the road is a fully functioning pottery which will be in operation during normal working hours. They run a small shop and courses there too.
The spiral staircase to the loft bedroom is steep and outside. There is a good downstairs bedroom and bathroom here.

We love it here because the beach is so close – look out for the sand bar that appears during low tide and creates a warm lagoon for frolicking in the shallow waters. It’s really fabulous. Or simply walk along the shores to either Barton on Sea to the West along the cliff path or East towards Hurst Spit and Keyhaven.
The garden here is enclosed with a wooden play house, a spacious lawn area for family games and even a wooded area – great for making dens!
