The historic market town of Lymington provides a perfect year-round escape within the New Forest, as its prime location blends the very best of country and waterside living.
Famous throughout the times for its boat-building expertise and salt exports, Lymington has always reaped the rewards of its fruitful position on the River (Not all business has been so above board though... legend has it that smugglers once traded contraband beneath the streets through a network of secret passages. Robinson Crusoe author, Daniel Defoe, complained of the "rogueing and smuggling" he found here on his travels in 1720!).
The Georgian High Street boasts an eclectic mix of boutique, independent and well-known shops to peruse. Carrying on a tradition that dates back from 1250, a diverse and bustling market fills the town centre every Saturday come rain or shine! Whatever your taste, there are also a vast selection of cafes and eateries to choose from in and around the town- from pizza and pub grub through to locally caught shellfish.
South of the High Street, a cobbled path leads you to the picturesque Quay. Sit and watch the world sail by whilst tucking into fish & chips or ice-cream, or try out your sea legs with one of the boat trips that set off from here!
Home to two large marinas (and Olympic Gold medallist, Ben Ainslie), the Lymington River feeds into the Solent where yachtsmen, fisherman and thrill seekers alike share the waters for business and pleasure. If you fancy a dip, the oldest Seawater Baths in the country are open throughout the summer months!
For those preferring to stay dry, a brisk walk around the Sea Wall is sure to blow away the cobwebs (and give you a fantastic view of the Isle of Wight and Hurst Castle), or there are a number of enchanting gardens in the area to inspire you. Perfect for day trips, the Isle of Wight is also just a stone's throw away as a 40 minute ferry ride will take you across the scenic 4 mile stretch of water.
There are a wide selection of Lymington B and B's (Bed and Breakfasts) on offer; from family friendly houses and hideaways, to historic hotels. Whatever your requirements, I hope this website helps you find the perfect Lymington B+B!

Perched on cliff-tops, and offering breath-taking views, Milford on Sea is located just 4 miles from Lymington.
This small seaside village has a big heart which is showcased through its strong community spirit and great selection of artisan shops, cafes, pubs and eateries (of the 3,250 noted restaurants in Hampshire, Milford boasts the 4th top spot for 'Verviene', and 6th for 'La Perle')!
Just a short stroll from Milford's village centre you will find a pebbled beach lined with quintessentially British beach huts. With a beautiful coastal vista of the Isle of Wight and the Needles, many visitors enjoy the 1.5 mile walk along Hurst Spit leading to Hurst Castle (where Charles I famously spent his last days imprisoned before his execution!) where a 360 degree of the spectacular view awaits.
The Solent Way footpath connects Milford to Lymington as salt marshes, mud flats and reeds line the way. This beautiful 5-mile stretch passes through a nature reserve and area of outstanding natural beauty which also showcases a huge variety of plants and birds.
Milford's vibrant village plays host to a variety of events throughout the year which are well worth looking out for, and if you want to venture further afield, the New forest Tour Bus runs during the Summer season connecting Milford to the rest of the New Forest National Park.
Across the river, and just a few miles from Lymington, you'll find the neighbouring villages of Pilley, Norley Wood and East End. Providing unspoilt woodland to stroll through, or picnic in, these charming and peaceful hamlets let you relax and escape from the outside world to absorb the beautiful natural surroundings of the New Forest.
