Have a romantic Georgian town retreat with Lymington lodges

Lymington is a vibrant destination for letting holiday lodges in New Forest. You can enjoy a romantic retreat with strolls and sightseeing in the Georgian towns, take a sailing trip or wander the town to learn about the rich maritime history.

The park is a great place for kids and pets as well, since there are many trails suited to different skill levels.

 
Things to do

Attractions near Lymington holiday lettings

There's simply no ignoring the duo of world-class attractions that lurk just to the north of Lymington. The New Forest National Park kicks things off. That's a wild wonderland of downs and woods and glades clad in moss – a mecca for hikers from winter to spring to summer to autumn. It's also the home of the National Motor Museum, in Beaulieu. You can head there to see heritage landmarks and manicured gardens, and to uncover everything from vintage F1 cars to classic scooters.

Activities

What to do near Lymington holiday homes

Lymington might just be the perfect place to launch an outdoorsy adventure through the English countryside. It's got both the sea and woodland parks right on its doorstep, meaning you can find yourself spotting wild ponies on windblown heaths one day and feel the swell of the waves hitting your face the next. Throw in a yearly seafood festival in August, and a clutch of hearty seaside pubs and eateries, and it's easy to see why Lymington holiday rentals are in such high demand.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Lymington holiday homes

Pretty little Lymington and its marinas really start swinging with the peak of the sailing season in the summertime. It's normal that Lymington holiday rentals get booked up from May, while the most popular days for riding the waves, feasting at seafood festivals and hiking in the New Forest don't really finish until August or September. That said, you could consider bagging a cosy little English cottage for the cold winter months, between December and March, if only to snuggle up all warm while the rain lashes the windows and the woods outside.

Natural features

Lymington – between water and woods

Lymington's really managed to fashion its sailor-outdoorsy image, because of its location on a little inlet on the South Coast. Ferries and yachts drift one way, out to conquer the swells of the Solent and tack around the coves and dramatic cliffs of the Isle of Wight. Meanwhile, walkers and nature lovers go in the other direction. They make for the New Forest National Park, where landscapes of moorland are trodden by long-haired ponies, deer stalk the woods and blooms of bluebells glow sapphire in deserted valleys.
