Why Jeff & Julie Faraday chose New Forest

We had some friends who purchased a second home in Lymington and whilst my husband was helping them with the renovation of their property he went on a bike ride and saw the cottage for sale. It was in need of a complete renovation - perfect project! We were lucky enough to purchase in August 2011 and haven't looked back since. We love Milford-on-sea and the surrounding area, we spend as much time as we can at the cottage whilst having the satisfaction of being able to share the cottage with our guests. Everyone who stays leaves heartwarming comments in our guest book about the cottage and the area. You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay at Rosemary Cottage. We hope to be able to move down to the New Forest area at some stage but for now feel really lucky having the cottage as our cosy retreat to the sea.

What makes this cottage unique

Sea-view from top floor bedroom

Recently renovated and maintained to high standard

Close to sea - 10 min walk

Village location close to shops, excellent pubs and restaurants

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for accommodating us for our wedding. It was fantastic to have a place so central for our needs. The place is fantastic, and my family enjoyed it very much.

We loved this house- probably the best rental house we have ever taken. It is so well equipped and beautifully furnished, the owners have thought of everything you could ever need and more! The welcome pack was lovely too. Location is perfect, near the New Forest and the sea and walking distance to the village which is choc full of lovely eating places. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends had the most enjoyable and relaxing stay in Rosemary Cottage. I could quite happily live here!

We visited Lymington, Hurst Castle, Burley and driving around the New Forest which is just stunning.

We will definitely be back at some point in the future.

Thank you very much Julie and Jeff.

A delightful holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely New Year's break with friends in this delightful cottage. It is cosy, tastefully decorated and very well equipped, a real home from home. Nice touches included the pretty Christmas tree, decorations and the welcome hamper. The location is great and we enjoyed our walks in the surrounding area. We will definitely recommend Rosemary Cottage to family and friends. Many thanks to the owners.

Jeff and Julie have truly thought of everything and I mean everything, it was perfect in every way. It is exactly as seen in the photos if not better. The furniture, equipment, soft furnishings are all of a very high standard. Think Boutique hotel. It was immaculately clean. Lots if useful info and a lovely welcome pack too. The location is great because you are literally a 5 min stroll from the pretty village centre with 3 fab pubs a great wine bar, the best Fish and chips and Thai we've had in years. The beach is also only 10 mins walk away. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Thank you it made my birthday very special.

Perfect holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect cottage for our base for lots of activities in the New Forest.

The decor throughout was contemporary and spotlessly clean. Everything about Rosemary Cottage makes you feel as though you are going from home to home.

The cottage was equipped with more than we would ever need and we enjoyed a thoroughly comfortable weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind feedback. During the renovation of the cottage, it was very important to us that we made it as comfortable as possible and somewhere people would feel home from home and is lovely to hear that we have achieved this from our guests. We now spend a lot of time ensuring the cottage is well maintained and the decor is kept to a high standard. We are so glad you enjoyed the New Forest as much as we do and due to the great location of Rosemary Cottage found it to be an excellent base. We hope you will visit again soon.

Milford on Sea
Car: recommended

Milford on Sea is a picturesque village on the outskirts of the New Forest and is ideally situated just a short walk from the beach and Keyhaven marina where you can enjoy nature reserve walks, the sunsets and spectacular views across the Solent. You will also be able to pay a visit to Hurst Castle which is at the seaward end of the spit. Just a 5 minute walk into the village, you will find the historical village green. In and around the village, there are plenty of shops and you will be spoil for choice with where to go and eat as there are some excellent restaurants, pubs and traditional tea shops and cafés to choose from. There is always plenty to do, this may include you enjoying cliff top and forest walks, bike riding, visiting the local sanding beaches, country rambles, bird watching, sailing, fishing and kite surfing. The village itself has many activities going on during the year which are very popular with the villagers and holidaymakers alike. Beaulieu Motor Museum and Bucklers Hard are among places to visit or a day trip to the Isle of Wight is just a short ferry crossing away from Lymington. Mudeford, Christchurch and Bournemouth are only a short drive away.
