Overview

About the property

Cottage in Lymington, New Forest, Hampdshire, England - Minutes from the Forest or the Coast

Wheathill is a beautiful comfortable large cottage sleeping up to 20 people. Its an original ‘Arts and Crafts’ double fronted detached New Forest Cottage, located on the outskirts of Lymington, a fine georgian quayside market town and major yachting centre in the New Forest.

The cottage stands in its own gardens, both front and rear are enclosed by high hedges and tall mature trees. Wheathill is only five minutes walk from beautiful common land and ten minutes walk, in opposite directions, to the Musketeer and Wheel Inn pubs. Lymington Town centre is a mile away, within easy walking distance, and the beautiful open New Forest itself at Sway is under two miles away, with the beaches at Milford on Sea just a ten minute drive.

Wheathill was built for its owner in 1908, and used the finest materials and craftsmanship of the period. The joinery was of the highest quality and the house luckily escaped ‘improvements’ over its life, remaining completely intact to this day. In 2004 we extended the cottage, leaving the front untouched but adding a large two storey wing at the back on one side, and the single storey extension to the right hand side, which can be seen from the front. The cottage, as well as having far more space, now enjoys good access to, and views over, the good sized back garden, which previously, was barely visible.

In these works we kept all the original features, joinery and fireplaces, and built the extension in bricks reclaimed from a cottage just a stone’s throw away, built at the same time with the same bricks, which was demolished. Two more original fireplaces were added in the new lounge and bedroom, the cottage now has seven open fireplaces! Reclaimed handmade clay roof tiles from the same tilemakers in Bishops Waltham were sourced, and the windows and internal joinery were all made to match the existing, resulting in a large cottage, retaining all it’s original character but now with larger living spaces and bedrooms and better access to the garden. The original owner’s family visited and stayed at Wheathill in 2008, a hundred years after he had commissioned the cottage, and were delighted!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Hi, Just to say we had a great long week end at Wheathill, Lymington. Thank you."



"Thank you for organising our recent stay at Wheathill Cottage, we had a superb weekend and would definitely use you again!"



"We had a lovely time at Wheathill Cottage - thank you very much! We shall certainly consider coming back for another visit"



"Thank you very much for the excellent accommodation"



"Just a quick message to say thank you, we had a lovely time at Wheathill"



"I recently stayed at Wheathill cottage with a group of girlfriends and had an absolutely fantastic time! The cottage itself was clean and spacious, with plenty of room for 15 outdoorsy females. The kitchen was well furnished and there was a real working fire in the living room allowing it to be made really cosy. There were mirrors in nearly all of the bedrooms and bathrooms and plenty of space to store clothes. The cottage itself is located a 15 minute drive away from Barton on sea and just round the corner from Lymington. The company that runs the cottage was extremely helpful at locating my jewellery when I accidentally left it there and sending it straight back to me via post. I'd really recommend the cottage, particularly for big parties of outdoorsy people due to excellent location and cottage facilities! "
