About Linda Anderson

My husband and I are retired and love the New Forest area. We have been doing holiday rentals in this apartment for a few years and find it ideal, it covers the costs needed for the upkeep and means we can enjoy staying there when it is not rented out.

Linda Anderson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Linda Anderson chose Barton on Sea

This apartment is in such a great location, just a few mins walk to the top of the cliffs at Barton and only a 10 mins drive to the forest. We bought this apartment after seeing several properties we liked but thought this was the best place for a holiday home. Such a lovely bright modern apartment in a quiet location but near to so many attractions and places of interest. The pub at the end of the road is ideal if you don't want to drive or cook plus a short walk to the cliffs and you will find a hotel serving food, a cafe and a Mitchelin Star restaurant. It was all this that made us realise it was the place for our holiday home. We hope you agree.

What makes this apartment unique

Whilst using the apartment you have the benefit of living in a bright, airy, modern and exceptionally clean home. A great place to come back to after a day out. From the front windows, the kitchen & 2nd bedroom you can view the charming old terraced houses and from the back, the lounge and the main bedroom, the view is of the gardens. Barton-on-Sea is certainly a great place to stay, so central to everywhere you will want to visit whilst on holiday. All the small New Forest Villages, Burley, Lymington, Brockenhurst, Lyndhurst etc are within easy reach as well as the bigger towns of Southampton, Bournemouth & Portsmouth etc. It is a great destination for adults and children alike.

Excellent Property - Superb Value

  • 5 of 5

To be fair, I don't think the listing does this property justice. We were really pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The flat is a maisonette, occupying the top two floors, with a spacious living room & kitchen at the top of the entrance stairs, and two bedrooms and a bathroom (I think the bathroom) is described somewhere as a "Jack & Jill" - and it isn't, fortunately, it is simply a bathroom with its own door!).

It's all modern, well equipped and spacious, TV's in both bedrooms and the living room, good quality beds (King Size in double room) - all really good. Good wifi, strong signal throughout too.

Although there isn't a dedicated parking space outside (and plenty of cars needing spaces) there is plenty of room in the street, as well as the 7 bays outside the block, so you won't struggle.

The flat is very competitively priced, it is 10 mins from the cliffs/sea (and there's a lovely hotel/bar with beer garden for those views at the end of the main road).

It provides very easy access to Lymington (best town in the New Forest in our opinion) and the rest of the New Forest is in easy reach. Bournemouth, Poole. Brownsea Island, Swanage to the west, Portsmouth, Isle of Wight, Chichester, Winchester, Salisbury, all easily accessed to the north & east - it's just a great spot with plenty of new places to see, if like us you're not from that part of the world.

Your hosts are lovely, helpful and responsive if you want to ask them anything - basically it's just one of the best places we've ever rented - property/location/price/amenities - it is all good. I can say no more than that.

Fantastic apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is simply the best. We really enjoyed our stay there over the Christmas period. It's location is perfectly placed near to the New Forest, Bournemouth and easy to grab a train to London if you fancy some time there. The apartment is extremely clean and has everything you need. A real "home-from-home". We would totally recommend this property.

Great spacious clean flat

  • 3 of 5

Great spacious and well appointed flat but the lack of proper shower and washing machine a real draw back. Also parking in the evening a nightmare

  • Review Submitted: 02-Nov-2015

Owner's Response: In the advert detailing the flat it does say that there is not a washing machine, we preferred to install a dish washer. Also one of the pictures in the advert clearly shows a corner bath with a shower included and this is the first negative comment we have had about the shower. Concerning the parking, again we have never had a complaint, there are plenty of spaces but not always directly in front of the apartments. We have now fitted a new pump and the shower is great, plenty of pressure, still no washing machine but launderette just around the corner. anyway, who wants to do washing on holiday?

Luxury apartment

The apartment was exceptionally clean, well equipped and very tastefully styled. Location is within walking distance of the sea front and close to a bus stop. Good cliff top walks. All of which contributed to a great week. Contact with the owner at all times was excellent

This is a super apartment that is immaculate, modern and very spacious. It also has a very well equipped kitchen. It is ideally placed to allow easy access to both the New Forest and Seaside towns. It is a real home from home and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
