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 16 years, slowly renovating the main house. We have four children all 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 appearance.

joanne broadway purchased this cottage in 2001

Why joanne broadway chose Lymington

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.

This place was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a lovely village which has great access to a number of really nice places to visit. The house itself is very clean and well cared for. We had a few nice gifts on arrival and the owners were very friendly. They respected our privacy and were very quick to respone to any queries we had. We love animals so all the horses in the nearby New Forest was nice to visit. We also came home after a day out to see deer in our garden. Thank you for letting us stay with you Joanne! We loved it and will hope to come back in the future.

Quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

Short midweek break, cottage was cosy ... lovely and warm on arrival. Milk, butter, hot cross buns, tea,coffee was a nice touch. The garden would be lovely to sit out when weather is warmer.

Great mini break in a cute New Forest Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a 3 night break in this lovely cottage- easy walk into the town and around the coast and so much on the doorstep within a short drive. The property was clean and spacious for the two of us, nice thoughtful touch with milk, bread and hot cross buns on the worktop awaiting our arrival. The property is down a country lane so very peaceful. We had gorgeous sunny but extremely cold weather which made mini break complete. Would highly recommend for any body looking to visit this beautiful part of the UK

Lovely quiet cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights at this lovely little cottage just outside of Lymington. It’s a 15 walk into the town and have lots of country pubs and walks nearby.

Jo is a lovely host and left some goodies and popped by to check we were okay on the first day.

There was building work going on but noise was kept to a minimum and didn’t disrupt us while we were in the cottage.

All mod cons in the cottage - WiFi, coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, tv, microwave etc

The double bedroom is on the ground floor next to the kitchen/living area. We found it especially useful that there is a lovely stokke Tripp trapp highchair.

The bathroom is upstairs with the twin bedroom which was set up with a travel cot for our daughter. She slept soundly all three nights as it’s a lovely dark room.

The bathroom is on the small side and as previous guests have mentioned the shower is built into the slant of the roof, so if you are anything above 5”5 it is slightly awkward. Also if you shower when the hot water isn’t on in the morning or evening, little tip: run the cold tap on the bath otherwise the shower won’t be anything more than lukewarm.

A lovely quiet location! Thanks again Jo

Lovely little cottage

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, the location is perfect being within walking distance of the town, harbour and plenty of pubs. The cottage itself is really nicely done, with the only downside being the shower which is not really designed for tall people given the sloping roof upstairs. We stayed here with our 2 year old, and it was perfect for the three of us with her loving having her own bedroom upstairs. The little finishing touches of treats of cakes, milk and butter left for us was a lovely addition.

Owner's Response: Lovely to hear you had a great stay. sorry re the shower, It is in the summary on the website, perhaps now it is in a recent review, guests have another opportunity to be aware. Note to perspective guests looking at these reviews....photos on the website to show - it is a shower over a bath, and the head is mounted on the wall immediately in front of a sloping ceiling - fine for most guests but a little challenging for any taller guests. We have looked at all options to solve, but that is the nature of the small cottage experience, little like Cameron Diaz in 'Holiday' with the bath! Lovely to meet you both. Jo

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.
