The location is unbeatable! With its perfect position overlooking Lymington High Street (SO41 9EP), it offers convenience, high standards of living and comfort.
A good range of shops and a large choice of restaurants and bars are a step away. Several supermarkets are on hand (including a Tescos, Marks and Spencers Food Hall, and Waitrose).

The attention to detail makes the apartment a real pleasure to come home to. Every room is a delight. There's free access to Netflix (online film service) - perfect for an evening unwind.
The Georgian market town of Lymington is set on the coast in the beautiful New Forest national park, between Southampton and Bournemouth. Famous for its sailing history, there are two large marinas filled with fishing boats and yachts, as well as two sailing clubs. The town’s narrow streets are lined with pretty period cottages and houses, as well as plenty of local pubs and restaurants.
Lymington high street has several independent shops and designer boutiques, as well as a local market held each Saturday which dates back to the 13th century. At the bottom of the high street, a cobbled road leads down to the old town quay, which is still used by a number of commercial fishing boats. There is often a chance to buy fresh fish on the waterfront. From here you can take a stroll along the waters edge and soak up the atmosphere of this renowned sailing resort.
The New Forest national park offers a huge range of leisure activities such as walking, horse riding, water sports (including kayak, canoeing and sailing both sea and inland), archery and golf.
We provide everything you'll need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. There is free wifi access.

The Isle of Wight is an easy day trip direct on the ferry from Lymington (either as a car or foot passenger).
A stunning apartment, beautifully decorated throughout. Every small detail was thought of even down to umbrellas which thankfully due to the lovely weather we didn't need and were able to enjoy the decked area. Liz was so helpful throughout the whole process from our initial enquiry through to our stay. We would highly recommend a stay.
It's is one of the best apartments we have stayed in .Could not wish for anything better .Clean , beautiful furniture , bedding felt so at home ,didn't want to leave . Just as described and more highly recommend .. Easy to find and good location for restaurants etc . Looking forward to our next stay !!
I stayed for 5 nights in this lovely apartment and enjoyed every moment. I am pretty fussy so if I can say its great then you will love it too! Everything works, the furniture and beds are comfy, the technology was fab and although I didn't figure it all out the TV over the bath was a real treat and made lounging for ages in the bath a more doable thing for a fidget like me. The apartment was warm and cosy without me having to fiddle with the thermostat. Parking is central and although a little tricky to locate its a welcome addition in a town which is short of it.
If there was anything I would change it would be the shower as the curtain is a little clingy when you are in it but that is a small niggle and not enough to put me off staying there again in the future. I also understand they intend to put in an additional shower in the future so it might not be a niggle for long.
The apartment was quiet but i went out of season so it might have a little more noise in the peak of season but its not like it will ever be a big town centre so I am sure it won't be a deal breaker. there is some outside space to use for the summer which I didn't use as it was tipping it down most of the week but it looked like it would work well for sunny days.
If you are eating out then Egan's, Stanwell house and the Angel and blue pig were my favourites. The furniture shop at the top end of the high street does amazing cake and if you fancy some outstanding home furnishings then Pinki-red further up the high street a little way past the church on the other side of the road is definitely worth a visit. The lady who owns it (Maria) is a delight and her upcycled furniture was really beautifully done.
so the upshot here folks is go and try out this lovely apartment before it gets booked up :-)
We stayed here for 3 nights in December. It's in a great location, right near the train station and Lymington high street. And yet it is so quiet. Lymington is a lovely town with plenty of good restaurants and supermarkets. Inside, the apartment is stunningly decorated. So much thought has gone into it. The lounge is beautiful yet also very comfy with a large sofa. The kitchen is well-equipped - we cooked 2 nights. The beds were great. The bathroom has a TV and it was fantastic to have a bath and relax after walking in the forest with the added luxury of watching TV. The owner was friendly and readily available. This was our first trip to the New Forest and we hope to return because the forest is beautiful and we would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. It was so nice not to have to use the car once we got there. Very clean and luxurious. Excellent restaurants on the door step. We would recommend The Angel & Blue Pig and also the Ship on the harbour. Lots of wonderful shopping and a great market on the Saturday. Would definetly recommend to family and friends.
We have just spent a fabulous week at this apartment, every room has been decorated to a very high standard with lovely fittings and furnishings giving you the opportunity to relax in style ( especially watching television in the bath) The location was brilliant stepping out onto the hustle and bustle of the high street enjoying many of the eating places Lymington had to offer. We really do hope to return again.
