About Michael Fuller

Mick & Linda have always loved the New Forest area and purchased the cottage and used as a second home for many years. We could not think of a lovelier area to spend time whether a day out or holiday.

Michael Fuller purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Michael Fuller chose New Forest

We chose the Pennington/Lymington area as it has the best of both worlds the property being within the New Forest National park but only minutes from the sea and the lovely Georgian town of Lymington. The property looks out over common land yet local shops and a pub are less than a few hundred yards away and within a few minutes drive all the unique shops, pubs and restaurants around Lymington are there for all to enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

The property offers a very tastefully and comfortably furnished living space being fully modernised with all new double glazing and,central heating system. It also retains some original features being a Character Victorian cottage. There are both coastal and forest walks with many other outdoor pursuits on the doorstep. Also easy access to many other attractions in the surrounding area. Parking is no problem directly outside the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got back after a lovely stay at the cottage. I have to say that the central heating works beautifully. I did need to turn it down a little from the pre set settings as it is very efficient and the cottage really retains the warmth well . This will be perfect for guests in the winter.

Thank you for making the cottage so welcoming and a home from home. My little 4 year old boy loved it and said he wanted to stay forever. Although the stairs are steep after a couple of uses he was able to easily get up and down unaided. The beds are super comfy and to have such lovely linen and towels to use was a real luxury.

Lovely little house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here this weekend with our son to celebrate his 3rd birthday (and go to Peppa Pig Land). The house was lovely, very clean and tidy, local to the local towns and amenities. We would definitely stay again. Thank you for a great weekend.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the New Forest and was made even better with our stay in your cottage. Everything was very clean, tidy and all that was needed as a home from home.

Extra special touch was the Easter eggs for the kids upon arrival which they loved. Thank you very much for making us feel welcome.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I have just returned from a lovely 4 night stay in Sun Cottage. The cottage was a delight and very characterful and had everything we needed for our stay. Having a downstairs bathroom was to be expected in a cottage of this age, so being of the generation that had to use it at least once a night meant taking care on the steep staircase but it wasn't a problem. We spent three lovely days walking in and around the New Forest, so the location was perfect for us. We would definitely recommend it.

Lovely cottage - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I have just spent 3 nights here and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is beautifully furnished, warm, cosy and spotlessly clean. Mick and his wife were incredibly helpful and I would not hesitate in recommending this as a lovely place to stay. We very much hope to come back again.

Cosy character cottage in the New Forest

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at Sun Cottage. It has loads of character and is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is on the edge of Lymington, down a quiet road and opposite a small common and with good local shops just a minute's walk away. An ideal getaway!

Lovely character cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the New Forest in this very cosy, character cottage. The two bedrooms are perfect for a couple and one child. We went with our two year old who slept in the second bedroom in a travel cot. The owners can provide travel cot and high chair if needed which is really handy to save space in a packed car! Our cot is quite large and fitted alongside single bed in second bedroom without a problem, there would also be enough room for a cot in with double bed if needed. The bed is comfy! The stairs are steep. Our son was fine with the stairs with just a little assistance from us, no different than we have to do at home. The downstairs is quite open plan kitchen and living room, fully stocked with everything you might need, we even used the sandwich toaster one lunchtime! The bathroom is downstairs and is clean and the shower is good with very hot water. There is a small lobby by the front door for coats and shoes etc. We had some super days out, favourites were Longdown activity farm, Bournemouth beach and Lyndhurst town. We went to the local pub on Thursday night where they do curry and drink for about £7. Pub was very friendly and very much a locals pub but food was good and we had a nice evening. There is a Tesco Express and One Stop shop 2 mins walk from the property. If you're looking for a home from home, cosy accommodation then I'd highly recommend this cottage.
