A charming cottage with a wood burner and garden, centrally located in this pretty coastal village. Located a stones’ throw from the beach and amenities, it’s the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday.

Set in the heart of the coastal village of Milford-on-Sea, this former fisherman’s cottage is perfect for exploring the South Coast as well as the nearby New Forest. Found on a pretty terrace in the middle of the village, you’re just a short walk from a choice of pubs, shops and restaurants, as well as the pebble beach, which enjoys views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. Lymington, a popular harbour town, is located just three miles away, and is a haven for watersports, with its lively marina. The New Forest National Park also lies close by, where miles of great walking and cycling trails can be found.

Follow the path leading around the side of the property, where you’ll find the main door, which opens into the cosy snug, with access to the lounge on the left and access to the kitchen/diner on the right. The lounge is the perfect place to enjoy a great night in, as you curl up next to the wood burner and watch a film on the TV/DVD. Meanwhile, the kitchen/diner has seating for four, enjoying views out to the garden through the large window and door, as well as all the equipment you need to fully enjoy your stay here: a range-style electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. In the adjacent utility area, you can find the washing machine and tumble dryer, leading through to a wet room with a shower and WC. Heading upstairs from the snug via steep cottage-style stairs, with restricted head height in places, you’ll find the two bedrooms: a twin and a double. The double bedroom benefits from an open-plan en-suite, with a freestanding slipper bath and WC.

Venturing outside from the kitchen/diner, you’ll find the pretty private garden, comprising of a small patio with steps leading up to a lawn area. With garden furniture and a summerhouse, it’s the perfect place to unwind with a drink or enjoy a meal outdoors. An allocated off-road parking space for one car is available opposite the property.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Lovely welcome touches and goods added for your arrival. Convenient amenities close to cottage; wetland reserve and beach within walking distance, and New Forest not far. We suggest you detour by New Milton in the summer to avoid the Lymington traffic crush!

The cottage is a great location in a lovely village, just minutes away from the sea. It was our first family holiday and the travel cot provided for our 4 month old was good quality, smart and clean. The cottage had everything we needed (and complementary biscuits!), was smartly presented and had a fantastic garden.

Joyful Cottage is as it's name suggests. Beautifully presented and fully equipped in a small friendly village which has everything you could need. The seafront is a few minutes walk in either direction and the New Forest on your doorstep. We will definitely be returning.

Absolutely wonderful; the cottage had just been totally refurbished and the design, ambience, equipment and garden cannot be faulted! There is even a "dog cupboard" should you have left any essentials behind (bowls, treats, poo bags, leads and coats!). Humans were welcomed with flowers, fresh coffee, milk and biscuits.
