The Central Southern England region
The area between Southampton and Swanage is quite a special area and contains some of the best countryside and coastlines in the UK. All these Places to Visit are within reasonable travelling distance from Lymington.
To the east we have the New Forest with a large area of heathland and forest to explore. If you are driving, the Forestry Commission has 134 car parks to start your walk from. Or if you are using public transport, there are two Cycle Hire businesses based along the south side of Brockenhurst station and many miles of well-maintained and signposted trails nearby.
To the south we have Lymington, famous for it’s sailing and historic High Street. From Lymington you can catch a ferry to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. People say that the island has the feel of England as it was in the 195Os. A popular destination is to catch a bus from Yarmouth to Freshwater and walk along the coast to Compton Bay. This coastline in the south of the island, is remote, quiet and stunning.
Lymington also has a coastal Nature Reserve that extends for five miles down to the small coastal fishing village of Keyhaven. Next to Keyhaven is a large shingle spit that extends one and a half miles out into the Solent, at the end of which is Hurst Castle originally built in 1544 by Henry XIII.
Farther along the coast where the Rivers Stour and Avon meet is the historic town of Christchurch. Then along the Christchurch, Bournemouth, Poole and Studland Bay coastline are 14 miles of some of the best sandy beaches in the country.
Poole Harbour is the second biggest harbour in the world and offers plenty of watersports in its shallow waters. Also there are ferry trips from Poole Quay to Brownsea Island, one of the islands in the harbour and run by the National Trust.
Inland from Poole and in the beautiful dorset countryside are the historic market towns of Winborne Minster and Blandford Forum. To the south of Poole is the Isle of Purbeck which has some of the best countryside in the UK, including Arne Nature Reserve and a World Heritage coastline running along from Swanage.
A beautiful, Georgian market town, Lymington is situated on the southern edge of the New Forest, between Southampton and Bournemouth and at the western end of the Solent.
Lymington is surrounded by outstanding natural beauty; to the north are the ancient woodlands and heathlands of the New Forest, covering an area of about 145 square miles, and to the south, the Solent and the Isle of Wight, Wightlink operate a car ferry from Lymington to Yarmouth.

"Excellent holiday home in wonderful location"
We really enjoyed our stay in Eleanor House. The house is well located within Lymington, very comfortable and well kitted out with everything you might need. There is plenty to do in and around Lymington and it was very pleasant returning to such a nice place at the end of a busy day!

"Great holiday home, peaceful, convenient - "a home from home"!"
What a great find! A “home from home”, convenient for everything (2 min from the High St), no traffic noise and when sitting in the cottage garden you could be in the country. We would love to be here in the summer, but in January with a log fire warming the house, it was ever so cosy! After a ten day stay and not wanting to leave we were thinking of our next visit. M & S and Waitrose just around the corner made life very easy, but preparing meals in the kitchen was a pleasure too as it had everything you would need to prepare the most complicated dish! A great holiday place and we have been to many all over Europe– the owner should be very proud !

Eleanor House was a great holiday rental. Four of us stayed for a weeks golf in the area.
The accommodation had everything we required. Lymington and the surrounding area is beautiful and this location would appeal to all types wanting a holiday.
