About Beau Soleil

Beau Soleil is a retro holiday cottage with a modern twist. Dating back some 50 years, the recently renovated property sleeps six people in three bedrooms and is a short stroll from the picture-perfect beach at Milford-on-Sea. With its wide choice of shops and places to eat and drink, the village centre is around 15 minutes away, and there is a huge choice of places to visit and fun activities to try during your stay. With the New Forest National Park virtually on the doorstep and the picturesque Isle of Wight a short ferry trip away, Beau Soleil is a favourite with families for holidays in every season.

Who needs the Caribbean or St Tropez when you have Milford-on-Sea? Sure, the temperature may not hit the heights of the south of France, but the pretty beach huts are picturesque, and the mix of pebbly and sandy shoreline is perfect for sunbathing and seaside treasure. The shallow, sheltered water is ideal for families, with the lagoon warmer than you might expect for an English beach. Don't be surprised to see hardy locals taking a dip in winter. You can experience the natural joy of wild swimming every day of your holiday at Beau Soleil. In addition to the beach and lagoon, you're only a mile from Hurst Spit which has the Solent on one side and a calm, protected body of water on the other. Go swimming, kayaking, SUPing or windsurfing. Equipment hire and tuition are available locally.

The view across the Solent is breathtaking at any time of the year. Many visitors of Beau Soleil cite walking along the Solent Way, which starts minutes from the cottage, as one of the highlights of their holiday. Walking through the mile-long shingle Hurst Spit is a great way to ensure you sleep well. The views of The Needles are spectacular, and if your legs can't face the walk back, there is a regular ferry service.

Milford village has a superb choice of independent businesses selling everything you'll need for your self-catering stay. If you want even more variety, Lymington is only 10 minutes away. Day trips can include taking the ferry from Lymington to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight and touring the New Forest National Park where there is a wealth of attractions to suit every interest.

Location (Hampshire)

Accommodation Comprises:

Beau Soliel looks like a simple, unassuming brick terrace from the front. However, step through the front door, and it's another story. Freshly refurbished and decorated to a high standard, it's a welcoming mix of open plan living, comfortable bedrooms and a sheltered sun-trap of a garden. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • Open plan living/dining room beautifully furnished to be stylish as well as practical. The seating area has a deep sofa and matching armchair, while the dining table has six chairs. Glass sliding doors open onto the south-facing conservatory with views of the terraced garden. There is a wall-mounted Smart TV and bookshelves with escapist novels and information about the local area.
  • Sunny conservatory with relaxed seating and glazed doors opening onto the terrace.
  • Fitted kitchen well-equipped for self-catering. Appliances include a dishwasher, integrated wall oven, and a washer/dryer.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and a handbasin.


  • Master bedroom with a kingsize bed, bedside tables and reading lights. The ensuite has a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Second bedroom with a double bed and south-facing views over the garden.
  • Third bedroom with a full-sized single bed and a pull out single bed.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The rear garden is south-facing and sheltered, so it stays wonderfully warm even when it's breezy on the beach. There is outdoor furniture and a charcoal barbecue for summer meals. The driveway has parking for three cars, with more available on the street.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. Guests to bring beach towels. A small, well-behaved dog is welcome by arrangement. Smoking is not permitted.
