Relax and unwind in this stylish property for two, which is set in a leafy spot within the New Forest. Visit the coast, take long walks or simply open the doors and listen to birdsong.

Sleeping two plus one dog, this romantic hideaway suits couples who want the best of coast and country. Lymington market town (2.5 miles) is nearby with its forest backdrop, maritime heritage, cobbled streets, and the prettiest of shops to browse. There’s fabulous dog walks and cycle trails from the doorstep, plus a private enclosed garden patio for Popeye to show off in, and a BBQ for guests to rustle up a delicious feast after a long day out. Parking is a breeze with two cars available to guests on the gravel area in front of your holiday home. You’ll also find a pub (1 mile) and a shop (3 miles) nearby.

A path leads from the gravelled courtyard into this single-storey property. Inside, there’s a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area with Smart TV and a DVD player. Bifold doors lead from the living space out to a private decked area on two sides of the property. This spacious contemporary-style detached annexe is ideal for two and has one double bedroom with a utility area (housing the washing machine), plus garden views, and a shower room downstairs. The property is next door to the owner’s home though privacy is assured.

If you’re a home bird, the owner can also arrange holistic therapies on site. Source fish and chips to enjoy by the town harbour or head to the beach at Milford-on-Sea (4.5 miles). If your salty pup’s sea legs are getting nomadic, take a ferry to the Isle of Wight for an adventurous day trip. The countryside surrounding your property is ideal for walking , cycling, country pubs, and market town discoveries. For lazy beach days, you could also head to Mudeford (10 miles) or Christchurch (10.5 miles).
