Beautiful 3 Bedroom farmhouse in Lymington. Perfectly located within New Forest.

Overview

Property

Updated: 25-Nov-2016
House in Lymington- Ideally Located on the coast of the fabulous New Forest yet only half mile from High Street.

Little Home Farm oozes country cottage charm and is nestled in an idyllic rural setting with views from the upper floors of the surrounding countryside and Lymington River valley. Think log burners, beamed ceilings, and original features which all combine to create a lovely, cosy home from home in one of the UK's most beautiful areas. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms. This stunning property started life as a complex of wheat and cattle barns when it was still a working farm, with parts dating back to the 1850's. The location is superb being close enough to Town, Forest and Coast to allow you to make the most of this unique area.

We accept bookings either weekly-Friday to Friday, Midweek-Monday to Friday or Weekends-Friday to Monday.

About the Owner

We are a family with 2 children aged 12 & 13 who are growing up (as I did!) loving this area and all that it has to offer! My husband and I both work from home (next door) so are on hand if there are any last minute problems or if you need a suggestion for a great local restaurant!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to let you know that we really enjoyed staying in your beautiful house for a week and to thank you for the great welcome and all the little extras that you put in. It was really a comfortable 'home from home' experience with good beds, good lighting in the kitchen (not always the case in holiday homes!) and plenty of comfortable spaces to enjoy.



As I told Steve, the only 'black mark' for me was the Sky sports package - but the men really enjoyed that - so with the pub right next door and a big screen and big couch - they were in their element!



It was nice to meet Steve and your lovely children.

A wonderful weekend, just as we dreamed it.

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the house and the size was perfect for our small group of friends. The lounge with wood burner made a lovely place for long chats and laughter in front of the fire.

Plenty of kitchen space and sufficient equipment to make self catering easy - I particularly liked the wine fridge!

Location is easy for coastal walks and lots of fresh air. Wonderful.

A couple of very small things needed fixing (a loose door handle, a bedroom door that didn't stay shut) but so minor they didn't both us and the owners were quick to offer to fix it.

We really hope we can find an opportunity to return soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you! Sorry about the handle-it will be mended before any new guests arrive. I am glad you found everything that you needed, we are also adding another fridge to allow for more refrigerating space-but don't worry the wine fridge will stay! Thanks again for taking the time to review Little Home Farm, we hope to welcome you all again soon!

Fantastic location, helpful and friendly owners, lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a lovely quiet location very close to town. There are lots of walks with plenty of pubs to stop off at along the way. The house is clean and well maintained.

Dirty, needs some love but has some good features

  • 2 of 5

Unfortunately our friends, who arrived earlier than us , had to spend a few hours of their time cleaning the bathrooms, kitchen and oven. Some bedroom windows had a substantial amount of mould along with the curtains and on stripping the bed we were very disappointed to see dirty and old stains on the mattress cover which obviously hadn't been washed for a while. We appreciate it is an older house and the end of season but the standard was very poor also considering the cost.

Owner's Response: Hello, thank you for your review – as you know we use a professional cleaning company, and laundry service to keep Little Home Farm as clean as possible and the mattress covers are washed and replaced regularly (we did find a small stain on one which had been replaced 2 weeks ago). To ensure this doesn’t happen again I have had a meeting with the cleaners to pass on your comments and, whilst we could not agree with all of the points you raised, if anything was dirty it is clearly unacceptable and I apologise; it is a shame that you didn't mention any of these concerns during your time here as we would have then been able to act immediately to make your stay more enjoyable. The cleaning company are aware of the high level we aim to deliver and in their defence we have had many reviews in the past 4 years, none of them negative, so I hope this is a one off and thank you for bringing this to my attention so that we can improve things for future guests.

The property is lovely and spacious and ideally located with a fully functional Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The property was perfect for our needs and Steve was on hand to help us setup a further stair gate for the kids and helped with the erection of one of the cots (which they had two of). Thanks Steve for all your recommendations totally loved the Pig in Brockenhurst and will defo go back there. Great location to explore so much in the area whether to the sea the New Forest or children activities, so much on offer. Oh and before I forget the house was perfectly safe for the kids and I would very much like to come back one day. I loved the fact you could have family meals either in the Kitchen or in the living room. Thanks again from the four of us, Rob, Sarah and our two children..

A very comfortable property to have a relaxing weekend away close to the sea and the New Forest

  • 5 of 5

The property was very welcoming with its large lounge, wood burner and family kitchen. The owners had left an unexpected welcome pack which had a treat for the everyone including the kids.

The location was just perfect being two mins from Lymington with easy access to the coastal walks or the New Forest.

The only downside with the location is the short walk into Lymington should you choose to walk. The first half is across fields which is great and the second half is pathed but there is a small 100 meter section which I wouldn't take kids across. It's in between 2 bends with fast moving cars in both directions and only a small grass verge. Luckily we didn't need to do the walk again so didn't impact on our stay.

The bedrooms are large and very comfortable with the 2 doubles upstairs and the twin room downstairs.

The facilities were great with the use of a computer if you needed it, wifi, large tv, loads of games and if the weather is great, a bbq and patio to use outside.

I'd certainly come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, I am so glad you enjoyed the house and location! Also thank you for mentioning the lack of pavement at the bottom of the hill as it is on a bend and when it's busy it could be a concern for others with young children. There is a safer but slightly longer walk which I should have mentioned, via Monument lane where there is a cut through at the Monument down to Undershore Road. I will make sure I put a note in for future guests. Thanks again for such a great review!

Just what was promised and more!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house! Very comfortable and in a great location (only a short walk into Lymington over a field).

The house was very clean and tidy on arrival, a huge lounge with plenty of board games, bathrooms for each of the three bedrooms and a bright roomy kitchen with plenty of crockery/cutlery glassware etc.

Lovely big fluffy towels - a must not always found!

We didn't meet the owners but they were only next door if we needed them. A great pub next door which we used on the Friday evening for dinner.

Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property to friends and family.

Facilities

From the Owner

Within 1/2 a mile there are familiar shops such as Waitrose, Tesco, boots etc plus a multitude of independent shops, Restaurants and Pubs. In the other direction, and only 1/2 a mile, you have the open Forest with miles of tracks and the wonderful New Forest ponies to explore. There are beaches close by and the Ferry to the Isle of Wight is walking distance. There is so much to do in the area that I can not possibly put it all here, but please feel free to ask for any suggestions!
