  • Beautiful coastal property located on the elegant Solent shore
  • Moments from the beach and sea village of Milford on Sea
  • A network of delightful coastal walks straight from the front door
Property code: NFL17

This charming coastal property is just a short walk from the beach and offers beautiful sea views. With lots of space, it's the perfect property for families looking to explore the New Forest National Park.

Situated just outside the village of Milton-on-Sea, the property is nestled in the coastal hamlet of Keyhaven complete with its own historic pub which makes a great spot for relaxing after a day spent on the beach. The nearby vibrant and bustling town of Lymington is a wonderful place to meander through the cobbled streets and various independent shops. Walkers and cyclists can head into the New Forest which is within easy reach of the property, and enjoy the extensive trails through the beautiful landscape.

Entrance to the charming property is via a spacious hallway and a cloakroom, which provides great storage for those sandy flip flops, buckets and spades. The property has a well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine and a dining area that’s perfect for entertaining and enjoying some local fish and chips. The lounge is a bright and spacious room that’s great for curling up and watching a DVD after a day spent in the fresh sea air. Double doors lead from the lounge through to the patio seating area, which is a lovely spot for al fresco dining or relaxing in the sunshine.

Stairs lead up to two bedrooms, one of which contains a double bed and the other a small single. There is also a bathroom on this floor. Another flight of stairs leads up to the second floor and two further bedrooms. A bedroom with charming sloping ceilings contains two single beds and has a lovely cosy feeling from the eaves of the house.

Fabulous well appointed holiday home in a great location. Lovely bottle of professor waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived!. The only downside was the lounge furniture. The sofas are very low and soft so you sink right into them, comfy for some but as I have arthritis in my hips I found them uncomfortable and struggled to get out of them. ThRead moree little tub chair was fine though. Lovely courtyard garden to sit in in the evenings. Hide

This is a great location for exploring by car (parking right outside the front door), cycling and walking both from the cottage. We did all three. You certainly feel part of the boating community here with boats all around and a local pub. We took the ferry back from Hurst castle and walked along the beach to the lighthouse restaurant (in Milford oRead moren Sea) in the evenings. Great holiday. Hide

This is at least our third visit. Property is ideally located for a quiet holiday, walking and exploring. It is very clean and well maintained all domestic items you could need. Its a pleasure not to have to dash out for washing up liquid etc. Comfortable and cosy, we have had great breaks here. Thank you

Well positioned cottage with good access to walks along the coast and round the Keyhaven Marshes nature reserve. Plenty of space apart from the very small kitchen and easy parking right outside. Adjoining walls are rather thin so be aware of noise transfer! Short drive to Milford on Sea with good restaurants, cafes and other facilities.

The house is in a good location within easy walking distance to a pebbled beach. Theres not much in Keyhaven itself, but its a short walk to Milford on Sea where there is a good choice of places to eat. The house was very clean but could do with being modernised, eg the shower cubicle is tiny and the other shower was handheld over the bath with no Read morescreen. The outdoor area wasnt very pleasant to sit in, plus the kitchen is tiny. It would have felt very crowded if there were 6 of us. Hide

It was a close call due to CV19 but we made it to our holiday home in Keyhaven and had a wonderful time. The health and safety precautions were very clear, but despite this, the house was definitely comfortable, well equipped and much admired by family who came to visit us. Would definitely like to stay at Southerly again. Thank you

This is the first time we have been to this area of the New Forest and found it less touristy and therefore more relaxed than the western side of the area. Beautiful location with great walks. We will be coming back both to the area and this house.

If you’re after a holiday destination which has natural wonders and British tradition in abundance, look no further than the New Forest – a region where beautiful heathland, forest trails and stunning coastline surround quaint villages and market towns.

The National Park is found on England’s south coast, covering the south west of Hampshire but extending into Wiltshire and Dorset. It’s known for its picturesque footpaths and cycle trails, from which you can witness the spectacular sights of deer, ponies and cattle roaming free throughout the ancient woodland.

The villages of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Buckler’s Hard have plenty of traditional, cosy pubs in which you can enjoy some locally-brewed cider or beer. Or, if you wanted something a little livelier, Hythe, Lymington and New Milton run fantastic weekly markets, while the lively city of Southampton is a drive away.

If you prefer coast over country, a visit to the shoreline is a must. Highlights include the Barton-on-Sea cliffs, Lymington Quay, and the Beaulieu River, where adventurous activities including canoeing await. There are plenty of other great things to do, too, with the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Breamore House and Museum near Fordingbridge, and Exbury Gardens all found around the region.
