Lymington out to sea over Solent

Self-catering holiday cottage Lymington

Lymington has been described as one of the best coastal towns in the UK in which to live and visit for a holiday. It is famous for three quite unrelated reasons – its sailing history, with, as a major yachting centre, no fewer than three marinas; as an important salt-making town between the Middle Ages and the 19th Century; and its proximity to the New Forest National Park – said to have been the inspiration for J.R.R.Tolkien to write ‘Lord of the Rings’ - making it the perfect base for walking, riding and cycling holidays. It also boasts open-air seawater baths (the largest on the south English coast) that first opened to the public at large in 1833, although they came into existence in the late 1700’s. Choose a self-catering holiday cottage to experience the marine lifestyle of Lymington, enjoy views across the harbour, and the Solent to the Isle of Wight.

Explore the New Forest and day trip to the Isle of Wight

Lymington is an elegant market town, with its glorious Georgian architecture hosts a weekly year-round Saturday market that dates back to the 13th Century. Taking a break from your holiday cottage offers a host of restaurants and excellent pubs as well as independent owner-managed boutique shops and cafes to visit. There are several guided walks thought the town, and for those with sea legs, either pleasure cruises in the Solent area, or a day trip on the ferry (with or without your car) from the town to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. There are also plenty of leisure activities in the New Forest and available in and around Lymington to keep both the young occupied and the old young.
