  • Spend a day in the nearby town of Lymington with its strong sailing heritage
Property code: 50723

Spacious studio accommodation set in a pleasant spot on the edge of the New Forest. A stones’ throw from Lymington and with many walking and cycling routes, it’s the ideal base for a fun filled break.

This contemporary studio annexe, surrounded by the greenery of the enclosed garden and countryside beyond, is the perfect setting for a romantic retreat with the pup in tow or some R&R for just you and your furry friend, with the property sleeping two and welcoming one dog. Enjoy the nearby trails of the New Forest, before returning to your home-from-home to relax in style with a glass of wine, or a bowl of water.

Relax on the sofa in the lounge area with a content pooch sprawled out at your feet dreaming of tomorrow’s walks. Rustle up a romantic meal for two in the modern kitchennette and open up the bi-fold doors, letting in the fresh air and doubling the space of your apartment. Enjoy dinner at the dining area with a warm breeze coming in from the garden and watch a happy pup sniff around the grass. When the day is done, a comfy double bed in the relaxing sleeping area beckons to tired legs. Enjoy a morning coffee on the decked area and plan the day’s adventures with Fido listening intently for the mention of walkies.

Discover the history of Hurst Castle (5 miles), an artillery fort only accessed on foot over Hurst Spit or by a ferry, that warmly welcomes salty sea dogs! Let Fido take the lead on the Solent Way, a 60-mile-long footpath that follows the coast with great views of the Isle of Wight and can be joined from Milford-on-Sea, 5 miles away. After working up an appetite enjoy a treat at one of the local dog-friendly pubs and eateries in Lymington, 2 miles away.

This is a beaytiful bijou holiday home with a lovely sunny garden. Situated a short drive from the sea and forest, it is a great place to unwind and explore all the New Forest has to offer. I particularly liked the decor of the cabin - very light and airy with original artwork.

The garden is full of bird song and we saw a little owl in a tree from the garden as well as a variety of song birds Hide
