Immerse yourself in the stunning scenery of the Solent.
Keyhaven Cottage is perfectly framed by the shores of the Solent, creating an absolutely magical location.
This nautically inspired home mirrors the serenity of the waves with hues of sea blues and whites flowing throughout the home, creating a truly harmonious and serene atmosphere enabling guests to easily unwind and rejuvenate. Of course, the marsh and harbour views are perfectly partnered with this and with so many viewpoints around the home, guests may find themselves inspired to take to the waters, perhaps on a boat ride to the nearby Keyhaven. Of course, there are many other activities for guests to get stuck into, there is something for the whole family, a walk to the nearby beach is a mere 5-10 minutes and a little further afield, guests will find the Lymington Saltwater Pools with a floating obstacle course, perfect for teens and older children.
The home itself is set across two floors and features four bedrooms, comfortably sleeping up to eight guests as well as an additional two babies. One of the bedrooms has been finished perfectly for children, featuring colourful walls and a bunk bed. Beyond this there is also a twin bedroom and two double bedrooms.
Away from the sleeping areas there is a beautifully decorated kitchen and dining area. The kitchen matches the same serene tone of the rest of the home, finished in a hue of light blue, emphasising the space around. The kitchen is finished to a very high level, including and Aga, electric hob, and all the equipment one could need to create an amazing family feast. Also in this room is a rustic wooden dining table which seats up to eight guests.
Downstairs, away from the kitchen, guests will also find a further dining room and a very cosy sitting room complete with large seating area and TV.
The New Forest is found in the South East of England, it covers most of South West Hampshire spreading into South East Wiltshire and East Dorset.
The New Forest is known mainly for the New Forest National Park which, once used as a hunting ground for William the Conqueror, is an area of stunning natural beauty, encompassing waterways and rivers, spreading over an impressive 566 sq km, stretching all the way to the coast. This gives visitors a wealth of things to do, perfectly balancing coast, countryside, cliff walks and the more urban village and town areas.
Guests are free to walk, cycle or even ride through the national park, where they will be sure to come across the New Forest ponies which graze and live here all year round. (Be sure to pick up a lucky New Forest horse shoe from a local gift shop before leaving!) There are also deer, owls, otters, all sorts of British wildlife can be found here. Beyond this there are many sanctuaries, gardens and even a wildlife park, all within the park area. The waterways that run through here are also impressive, offering vistors the opportunity to canoe, kayak, sail and even fish.
After an exciting day exploring the forest, visitors will find a whole host of locally sourced cuisine nearby, where one can enjoy a traditional meal of game and vegetables in a local public house or venture into a local village to experience the catch of the day, both accompanoed by locally brewed cider, ale or beer.
Beyond the expanse of nature, coastline and cliff walks, there are also tea rooms, restaurants, a water park, theme parks and even the main shopping hub of Southampton, all just a short drive away.
