About joanne broadway

Hi we are Jo & Mark we live with our family at Delawarr House, Delawarr Cottage is located within it's grounds, but is quite separate.

We have lived here for 14 years, slowly renovating the main house. We have four children almost all now in their teenage years.

Sharing our home is Jasper, a collie/springer and in the field adjacent to the cottage are our 2 ponies :Emma, and Black Beauty, There are a family of deer who live in the fields behind the house, who do occasionally put in an apprearance.

joanne broadway purchased this cottage in 2001

Why joanne broadway chose New Forest

One of the best locations in Lymington, between the sea front and the town "the best of both worlds"

Lymington to us is one of the best locations in the UK. This particular part of the South Coast, with the Solent and the New Forest all around you, there aren't many locations with so much to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

Delawarr offers, a quiet rural location and feel, with nothing but fields leading to the Solent beyond in one direction, yet less than a mile away and you are in the middle of one of the South Coast's most stunning towns.

We have ample parking including space for boat and trailer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a fantastic week in Delawarr cottage. It's the first time we have travelled with our 4mth baby, and it couldn't have been an easier place to stay. Jo the owner was very helpful and accommodating, even buying a new mattress for the travel cot, which our daughter slept in very peacefully. The cottage has been recently renovated to a very high standard, with everything you could wish for provided. It is furnished beautifully, with high quality bedding and plenty of towels etc. The welcoming touches of fresh flowers, hot cross buns and milk in the fridge were much appreciated after a long journey. The cottage has it's own private garden, which was lovely when the sun came out and I'm sure will be much used in the warmer summer months. The location is great for a 15 min stroll into Lymington, which is a pretty harbour town, with plenty of nice shops, pubs and restaurants. There is also a lovely sea wall walk, which takes approx 30mins into Lymington. A short car ride away is the beautiful New Forest with great walks and the surrounding villages of Lyndhurst, Brokenhurst, and Beaulieu. We look forward to returning in the future.

Beautiful cottage in a tranquil setting. Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped, clean and charming cottage with everything we needed.

As we stayed over the Christmas period, it even had a Christmas tree which was a lovely touch - the kids were thrilled.

Jo also left bread, milk, butter and chocolatey treats ready for our arrival - always the mark of a thoughtful host.

Delightful charming property

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully appointed cottage, clean, well equipped and a great location. Stayed 10 days to spend time with my teenage granddaughters who came & stayed with me at stages over the days I was there.

An additional bonus were the thoughtful groceries left by the owner. Thank you Jo, these were very much appreciated.

Highly recommend this cottage for a stay in Lymington & the New Forest.

Lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two children. The location was fantastic. It was about a 15 minute walk into Lymington town centre. The property is very cosy, clean and well kept and Joanne made us feel extremely welcome. It was a great location for exploring the New Forest. We would certainly consider staying here again.

Quiet Getaway from the hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was excellent, clean, modern and well maintained. We had a wonderful quiet few days and an added bonus was the location was only a few minutes away from the solent. I would recommend this to people who are looking for somewhere relatively quiet within walking distance of shops and pretty scenery.

Further Details:

Lymington has something for everyone.

With the Solent forming the playground for local sailors, and the New Forest for walkers, ramblers, cyclists and horse enthusiasts there is always something to do here.

The beautiful Georgian town of Lymington has managed to retain a selection of independent shops and designer boutiques, with its traditional Saturday open air market along the high street.

The Town Quay is one of Lymington's highlights, this traditional cobbled street leads you to the Lymington River, where you can feed the ducks, watch the boats come and go whilst enjoying a traditional New Forest Ice Cream, fish and chips or your favourite coffee.

Lymington has a vast selection of restaurants to suit every requirement, family friendly with outdoor play areas, to Michelin star restaurants offering the very best there is and of course a great selection of sea food options in many establishments.
