About Lilies Cottage

Lilie’s Cottage is a charming period home that is full of original character. It was built in around 1805 and is just a 15-minute stroll from the centre of Lymington and even closer to the popular Monkey House pub. The holiday cottage is ideal for both families and couples, as there is space for up to four people (plus a baby) to sleep in two bedrooms.

The charming Georgian town of Lymington is a fantastic place to stay while you are in the New Forest. The friendly community is happy to welcome visitors and offers a good variety of amenities, including a thriving High Street lined with a variety of shops and cafes, and a buzzing Saturday market where you can browse for trinkets as well as pick up locally produced food and drink. The older part of town is reached through a very pretty cobbled lane that winds its way down to Lymington’s beautiful harbour and waterfront. Lymington also has a busy marina and a port with a regular ferry service to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, making day trips a popular choice for a day out.

Not only is Lymington attractive in its own right, but it’s position between the New Forest National Park and the Solent means there are copious ways you can enjoy being outdoors. The New Forest was once a hunting ground for royalty but now offers hundreds of miles of cycling routes, footpaths and bridleways for everyone to explore and enjoy the ancient forests and woodlands. The 5.5 mile Sea Air footpath starts near the marina and follows part of the Solent Way, passing through the Keyhaven Nature Reserve before continuing to Milford-on-Sea. Alternatively, the Walhampton Monument Trail is a circular, three-mile route from the train station at Lymington.

Being on the Lymington River and the Solent means there are opportunities to sail and fish, or take a dip in the open-air seawater swimming pool, which is open between the end of April and September and has lots of fun activities. Nearby New Forest attractions include Beaulieu House and the National Motor Museum, Bucklers Hard, and Hurst Castle which sits at the end of a spit and affords sensational views. Within an hour’s drive, you can reach Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester or, as Lymington has good train links, you could leave the car behind.

When you return at the end of a fun-filled day, you will find Lilie’s Cottage waiting patiently to offer a warm welcome, just as it has been doing for more than two hundred years.

Accommodation Comprises:

Lilie's Cottage is a period property that has retained its original charm, including some low doorways. It was sympathetically refurbished in 2017 so has all the modern comforts you expect from a high-quality holiday cottage.


  • The living and dining area is an L-shape, with a thick stone fireplace providing a partial division between the rooms. The sitting room is cosy, with an efficient log burning stove, comfortable couches, and a flatscreen television with Freeview channels and DVD player. The cottage also has free WiFi.
  • The dining area is a sunny space with glass French doors that open onto the smaller of the garden's two patios. A high chair is available on request.
  • A fitted kitchen features everything you need to easily cater for couples and families, including a microwave and dishwasher. The owners have provided a good complement of utensils and equipment, as well as ample crockery and cutlery. There is also a washing machine, drying cupboard, iron and ironing board for guests to use.
  • The owners provide a welcome pack with tea, coffee biscuits and milk so that you can put the kettle on as soon as you arrive.


  • The master bedroom has a double bed, and there is space for a travel cot, which can be provided if required. There is a chest of drawers, bedside tables and reading lights.
  • The second bedroom is a comfortable twin room with two single beds. It has a nightstand with a lamp, and a lovely leafy outlook over the garden.
  • The modern tiled bathroom has a bath with electric shower above, WC and handbasin.

Outside: The mature gardens are peaceful and private. They feature two patios with garden furniture, a pond and waterfall, and space to play. There is also a barbecue for guest use. A secure summer house provides storage for bikes, buggies, fishing rods and other sports equipment. The gravel driveway has space for two cars to park off the street.

Additional Information: Lilie's Cottage has WiFi and central heating. All utilities, bed linen and towels are included, although guests are required to bring cot bedding and beach towels if needed. Short breaks (minimum three nights) are possible, depending on availability. No smoking is allowed in the property, and it is unsuitable for pets.
