The Central Southern England region
The friendly and lively village of Milford on Sea has the Green at its centre, with traditional shops around it. Three welcoming pubs, tea rooms, a wine bar, and a wide choice of restaurants (including French, Indian, and Thai cuisine) are all here in Milford village. Or just buy your fish and chips in the village, and stroll down to the beach to enjoy them with the setting sun.
Relax and unwind on Milford's uncrowded beach, with its seafront promenade cafe overlooking the Isle of Wight. The coastline is fantastic, with great views towards Bournemouth, the Jurassic coast and across to the Needles and the Isle of Wight. Its an easy walk from Little Egret to Keyhaven harbour where you can take the regular local ferry to Hurst Castle and the lighthouse, or further on to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. (car ferry from Lymington). By foot, Hurst Castle is a pleasant 45 minute walk along the shingle bank - and you could catch the ferry back to Keyhaven and have a refreshment stop at the !8th century Gun Inn (fresh locally caught crab a speciality, and log fires in the winter).
Around the village many varied footpaths lead you through public woodland, along the Danestream, or down to the coast and up on to the clifftops to enjoy the panoramic sea views. A short drive to exploring more in the New Forest National Park, with roaming ponies, deer and cattle to be seen.
The area is a wildlife haven and popular with bird enthusiasts. Walks straight from the door to the local nature reserve, and the Keyhaven saltmarshes - a favourite place to see swans, Brent geese, oyster catchers and curlew. The mix of beach, sea, cliffs and the New Forest make it an exceptional place to visit.
The whole area offers something to do whatever the season or weather.
The autumnal colours in the forest are wonderful at this time of year.
Cosy and traditional forest and village pubs are a welcome resting stop after an invigorating walk. And if you fancy a little pampering, there are two excellent beauty parlours right here in Milford.
A short drive to the village of Hythe gives you the opportunity to take a ride on the little train along to the end of the 130 year old pier, from where you can catch the regular ferry to Southampton. Here you'll find the Tudor House, Art Gallery and the Sea City Museum with its unique exhibition and interactive story of the Titanic. A free bus service from the docks takes you into Southampton and to the varied shops at West Quay that should satisfy the most enthusiastic shopper, and perhaps take in a show at the Mayflower Theatre too.
In winter, both Bournemouth and Winchester have their special Christmas markets (Winchester also having its seasonal outdoor ice rink from November). Here in Milford on Sea, we celebrate the run up to Christmas with late night shopping and evening carols on the Village Green early in December. Father Christmas makes a visit too.
The village green is the centre for many events throughout the year including Music and Arts week, the Food Festival and
there is a wide range of events at Milford's Village Community Centre. The attractive town of Lymington with its cobbled quay is a short drive away (a thriving street market on Saturdays). With Lyndhurst, Christchurch and Bournemouth close by, there is always plenty to see and do.
Beaulieu Motor Museum, Paultons Park, The New Forest Wildlife Park, Exbury Gardens and Lepe Country Park are popular local family attractions.
Milford on Sea
The wide stretches of shingle and sandy beaches along the South Coast are both stunning on a Summer's day, and exhilarating on a Winter's day walk or cycle ride, with the high waves crashing in. Here in Milford on Sea, protected by the Isle of Wight, we usually enjoy a milder climate than other places further back from the coast. Throughout the year, the different seasons always bring new things to see and discover.
Children of all ages can enjoy "crabbing" from the little wooden bridge near the beach.

"great stay in a well equipped apartment"
We enjoyed a lovely week in this cosy apartment. Little Egret is the best equipped apartment we have ever stayed in, Pam & Peter really have thought of everything. The welcome tray was a nice touch. Milford on Sea is a very friendly place and we were made very welcome. We ate at the Red Lion, the Indian Restaurant and the Smugglers and enjoyed all of them. If you are a sports fan you can go into the local club and pay as a guest. All in all a real home from home.

My husband and I have just had one of our best ever short breaks.
The accommodation is superb - new, clean, well equipped (we actually enjoyed cooking in rather than eating out, which almost happens!), warm and welcoming.
The welcome from Pam, along with the welcome pack, DVDs, books etc meant that even in miserable January we were extremely comfortable.
The location could not be better - we walked straight from the door 3 days running, to Lymington through the nature reserve, to Mudeford along the cliffs and seafront, and out along the spit to Hurst Castle, all reasonably long but not too challenging physically. Milford on Sea was new to both of us and is a great little village with a good choice of pubs, cafes/restaurants, beauty salons (yu sei bella was good), a small co-op and Nisa.
In short, I will recommend both the apartment and the location to everyone I know, and will be back for a return visit next winter.
