Wheathill is a beautiful comfortable large cottage sleeping up to 20 people. Its an original 'Arts and Crafts' double fronted detached New Forest Cottage, located on the outskirts of Lymington, a fine georgian quayside market town and major yachting centre in the New Forest.

The cottage stands in its own gardens, both front and rear are enclosed by high hedges and tall mature trees. Wheathill is only five minutes walk from beautiful common land and ten minutes walk, in opposite directions, to the Musketeer and Wheel Inn pubs. Lymington Town centre is a mile away, within easy walking distance, and the beautiful open New Forest itself at Sway is under two miles away, with the beaches at Milford on Sea just a ten minute drive.

Wheathill was built for its owner in 1908, and used the finest materials and craftsmanship of the period. The joinery was of the highest quality and the house luckily escaped 'improvements' over its life, remaining completely intact to this day. In 2004 we extended the cottage, leaving the front untouched but adding a large two storey wing at the back on one side, and the single storey extension to the right hand side, which can be seen from the front. The cottage, as well as having far more space, now enjoys good access to, and views over, the good sized back garden, which previously, was barely visible.

In these works we kept all the original features, joinery and fireplaces, and built the extension in bricks reclaimed from a cottage just a stone's throw away, built at the same time with the same bricks, which was demolished. Two more original fireplaces were added in the new lounge and bedroom, the cottage now has seven open fireplaces! Reclaimed handmade clay roof tiles from the same tilemakers in Bishops Waltham were sourced, and the windows and internal joinery were all made to match the existing, resulting in a large cottage, retaining all it's original character but now with larger living spaces and bedrooms and better access to the garden. The original owner's family visited and stayed at Wheathill in 2008, a hundred years after he had commissioned the cottage, and were delighted!

The kitchen/dining room directly adjoins the large lounge/dining room, having large central wooden kitchen table with eight chairs, with a further twelve seats at the dining table just through the open doorway which links the two rooms. Here all guests can socialise together, between the kitchen, dining and living spaces. There are beech worksurfaces, stainless steel electric cooker, with a fridge freezer integrated flush in to the wall, a dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. The maple kitchen cupboards house a comprehensive range of cooking and dining equipment for use during your stay.

The large lounge has an open fire, perfect for winter breaks, with long contemporary settees and some period armchairs, leading to the feature square bay with french windows opening to the garden, at the end of the room. Books, videos, board games, local information useful during your stay, and a television with DVD player are all in this comfortable room.

Off the other end of the kitchen is a separate utility room, with a second fridge / freezer ideal for drinks or extra food. This leads on to the downstairs shower room with large shower, basin and wc.

There's a bathroom upstairs with wc, basin, bath, and separate shower. The largest bedroom is ensuite with double-sized shower, basin and wc. All have modern back to wall white suites.

There are seven good bedrooms at this large New Forest cottage, three on the ground floor with front garden views, and four upstairs, two overlooking the front garden and fields beyond, and the largest one at the back with rear garden views.
