The Central Southern England region
Kelston holiday home is located on the edge of the tranquil village of Milford on Sea, near Lymington in Hampshire. From the coast there are stunning views south towards the Needles, the IOW and west towards Hengistbury Head & Christchurch Harbour and on a clear day further still into Dorset and the English Channel.
The unspoilt village offers a range of shops, pubs and restaurants around a traditional village green. The location of Kelston holiday home is therefore perfect for those looking for a vacation with a beach, the New Forest, Lymington, Highcliffe, Christchurch, Bournemouth, Southampton and many more local attractions and things to do.
The area is fortunate in having a micro climate which gives more sunshine than perhaps other places
The are has an abundance of things to do. The Solent is famous for sailing and is one of the worlds leading locations for this. The New Forest National Park with everything it has to offer is only a few minutes drive. The safe beaches of Bournemouth and Poole are only about 12 miles although there are good beaches for families even nearer such as Highcliffe and Avon and Christchurch with its Priory and Harbour is easy to reach. Walking on the coast or in the forest is a pleasure. There is just so much to do for example Beaulieu Motor Museum or Paultons Park A half hour drive can get you to the tip of Southampton Water or into the amazing shopping centre of West Quay, Southampton

"basic for the price"
Advised not to use one of two showers, with a party of eight adults is very inconvenient.We were told that the supply of hot water for the useable shower once exhausted , we would need to allow time f… More
This is one groups opinion and does not fit with the others that have commented. Regarding the shower supply of hot water it has always been found to be plentiful unless everybody is going to spend half an hour in it.The shower is a power shower with a deluge of water. I don't think that the guests would have been told not to use the shower over the bath but maybe advised as to its suitability for showering as opposed to the power shower. The other shower is over the bath and is more suitable for washing your hair than taking a proper shower. The beds are no more than 5 years old and are only used part time so they are hardly worn out. The cooker is 2 years old and we found that the control knob had been broken by turning it anti clockwise. This is now fixed with a new one.. The central heating does need some overhaul with the replacement of the thermostatic valves. These will be replaced. The kitchen is not new but it is more than adequate. I am not sure which panels are broken but when we discover this they will be fixed. It is also fair to say that none of the aforementioned problems were brought to our attention whilst the guests were in residence except for the central heating problem which we are aware of. The heating does work but when the temperature is warm some do not shut off completely.

"Had a great time"
Kelston House provided a spacious, very comfortable residence to our delighted party of 7 for the duration of our stay this weekend. All rooms have been splendidly decorated to a high standard over 2 floors with amply room to prepare for daily pursuits.
The facilities are up-to-date and modern which suited all members of the family at various ages. The welcome tray and flowers was a lovely surprise and set the mood for first introduction to the New Forest.
The care and dedication to the surrounding gardens of this wonderful house helped to enhance the peace and tranquility during our stay.
I will would highly recommend Kelston House to members of my family and to friends.

"Great base for the New Forest and Hampshire coast"
A lovely house and a welcome tray on arrival! Ideal house layout with two sitting rooms, one we used for the baby's bedroom, two bathrooms, and a well equipped kitchen made this an ideal base for two families, or a family gathering as we were, close to the New Forest.

"Fantastic Holiday, we all loved our "Holiday House"."
The property was fantastic, large rooms, nicely decorated and comfortable.
We were a party of 8 and didn't feel like you were on top of each other.
The house is in a lovely location not far from Milford on sea with the a Caravan Park just up the road, and the new forest is nearby.
There are pubs around for eating out and a chip shop in Milford on Sea.
We had great communications with the the lady who looks after the house and she met us at the house to show us around and give us the keys. She also came back at the end of our stay for us to return the keys.
We all had a lovely holiday and were very sad when it came to an end.
We would recommend Kelston to our friends, great location and lovely property.
