Make a holiday cottage in Lymington your home away from home

Lymington is a charming port settlement situated on the banks of the Lymington River, roughly 30 kilometres from Southampton on England’s south coast. The town’s rich maritime, smuggling and military history, in addition to its role as a major sailing centre and gateway to the Isle of Wight, means that there really is something available to suit every taste and interest. A Lymington holiday cottage is consequently the perfect destination for a lively family holiday, a romantic tryst, an adventure across to the Isle of Wight or a sailing escapade on the Solent. Regardless of why you choose to visit this lovely region and stay in Lymington holiday cottages from HomeAway, you are guaranteed to return from your break feeling completely refreshed.

Things to do

-Sailing: Sailing is unquestionably one of the most popular pastimes in Lymington, which is made immediately obvious by the three marinas and the number of transient boaters that frequent the region. The town’s great yachting facilities however, mean that avid sailors can easily launch and dock their vessel, whilst aspiring mariners have the opportunity to charter a skippered yacht and test their sea legs on the Solent.

-Hiking: Hiking is another great way to spend your break, as the area around Lymington holiday homes boasts a number of great walks, such as the six-kilometre circular walk around town, which begins on Quay Road. The real treat for avid trekkers in Lymington however, is the close proximity to England’s spectacular New Forest region, which provides some great hiking tracks, in addition to an abundance of interesting flora and fauna.

-Attractions: The Sea Water Baths, situated on Bath Road just south of Lymington town centre, is an immense outdoor pool filled with seawater from the local estuary. The baths make for a great day out if you have children, although some people take to the pool for the apparent healing properties of the salt water and mud minerals. The fact that the baths are also located within close walking distance of your Lymington holiday apartment makes them an absolute must.

-Beaches: The beaches around Lymington are numerous and diverse, ranging from beautiful, stony coastal areas such as Milford on Sea and Hordle Cliff (roughly seven kilometres from Lymington) to pristine, sandy beaches including Mudeford Sandbank and Fisherman’s Walk (approximately 20 kilometres from Lymington). The wide variety of great seaside areas on offer means you have the opportunity to choose the beach that best suits you, irrespective of whether you like crowded beaches packed with amenities, or more remote, quiet beaches where you can relax and soak up the sun.

-Shopping: The Lymington Charter Markets, which date all the way back to the mid-13th century, are held every Saturday on the High Street and play host to over 90 different vendors. The market is certainly worth the visit as the vibrant stalls, selling everything from flowers, carpets, sausages and chocolates to shoes and clothes provide hours of enjoyment for the whole family.

Weather in Lymington

The weather in Lymington consists of warm summers (18 – 20 °C on average) and cool winters (2 - 5 °C on average), although the town’s southern location generally means that temperatures are favourably high compared to other areas of England. This consequently makes Lymington holiday cottages great year-round holiday destinations, although the summer months are definitely better if you’re planning on spending the majority of your getaway at the beach!

Travel to Lymington

Lymington is serviced by buses and trains, and isn't too far from major roads, including the M3 and M27, in addition to the passenger ferry from the Isle of Wight, which makes getting there without a car relatively easy. If you’re interested in exploring the marvellous attractions around Lymington during your getaway however, it may be advantageous to hire a car or drive yourself.

                                                            Fabulous holiday at Cloisters with the family. The house was perfect, very well equipped, super comfortable and elegantly decorated. The gardens are lovely with access to the tennis court. We had a memorable holiday thanks to the owner's tips and advice as well as the location. Thank you and we will definitely come back!

                                                            A beautiful location in a small seaside village. The holiday home was in a great place, close to the village centre and beach. The house was quiet and clean, with a lovely garden. Very private and tranquil. The hosts were lovely and would definitely recommend.

                                                            A relaxing stay in the heart of Lymington

                                                            We had a good week. A comfortable stay. All the furnishings and kitchen equipment were of a high standard.Loved the brow over the Solent and the Island. The only down side is the bedroom over the high street suffers a bit from the noise of the buses in the morning. We would come again.
