About One The Old Alarm

One The Old Alarm is in Lymington, a few steps from the harbour on the traffic-free cobbled Quay Hill. Dating from 1680, the Grade II listed building is one of the oldest in town and sleeps up to four people (+ infant in cot) in two bedrooms. It has recently received a full refurbishment that makes the most of its space and original features without losing the original character that makes it unique. The layout is ideal for couples and friends, but also works well for small families. Shops, restaurants and historic pubs like The Kings Head and The Ship Inn are all a short walk from the door.

Lymington is a pretty Hampshire town on the Lymington River overlooking the Solent. It is lively in the summer, especially with day-trippers taking the ferry between Lymington and the Isle of Wight. Lymington is a popular place for those who sail and a stroll along the waterfront will have you passing chandleries and places to hire a kayak or paddle-board, either of which is an excellent way to enjoy the water if you don’t want to charter a boat.

Your holiday has so much potential when you choose to stay in Lymington. It’s a market town, so has a great choice of shops and a weekly market with over 100 stalls every Saturday from 8am. If it’s hot, take a dip in the Lymington outdoor swimming pool, which is the oldest operating lido in the UK. Enjoy a refreshing coastal walk or hire a bike and explore on two wheels, or climb into a different saddle and go horse riding along miles of dedicated bridleways. With the New Forest National Park on the doorstep, you definitely won’t run out of places to go!

Days out can include admiring the many stunning cars at the National Motor Museum, or walking around the house and grounds of Beaulieu Abbey. Visit Hurst Castle, the oldest part of which was built by Henry VIII and which operates as a private museum. You can walk there along Hurst Spit, but it’s 1.5 miles of shingle so you may prefer to take a water taxi instead. Go to Milford-on-Sea for a day at the seaside, or drive 18 miles west to Bournemouth.

It doesn’t matter your age, your interests or the time of year that you visit, Lymington is a perennial favourite place for families and friends of all ages.

Accommodation Comprises:

One The Old Alarm is one of two beautiful apartments in this Grade II Listed gem. Each can be booked on its own to sleep up to four people, or together to sleep groups of eight friends and extended family members. The entire first-floor apartment has recently been refurbished to a high standard with accommodation featuring:

  • A light and spacious living area where the age of the property is immediately apparent not in the furnishings, which are comfortably modern, but in the quirky shape of the living area. The owner has kept the seating area, dining space and kitchen all open plan to suit the way contemporary families live.
  • Living/dining area with soft sofas, a big HD TV with Netflix. The apartment has good WiFi throughout. The dining table seats four people and is made from reclaimed wood. A high chair is also available.
  • Fitted kitchen with all mod-cons like a dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, fridge/freezer and an excellent complement of pots, pans and utensils. There's also a washer/dryer for guests' convenience.
  • Master bedroom with a king-sized bed, bedside tables with reading lights and a private balcony with a table and two chairs.
  • Second bedroom with a double bed and a decorative period fireplace. All beds are made up with Egyptian cotton linen and feature deep pocket sprung mattresses. A travel cot (no bedding) is also available.
  • Shower room with a rainfall shower head, WC and handbasin.

Outside: The apartment has a balcony with small table and chairs where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the sunshine.

Additional Information: Bed linen, bath towels, utilities and WiFi are all included. Guests have use of a long-stay parking permit to use in any of the municipal car parks in Lymington as well as around 30 car parks in the New Forest. Short breaks (minimum of three nights) are possible depending on availability. Smoking and pets are not permitted.
