Lymington, New Forest Cottages
In the New Forest hamlet of Bashley, a few minutes' walk from the open forest, The Lodge is a no-expense spared restoration of a traditional, brick house, combining period charm and character with contemporary comfort and convenience. An open air, heated swimming pool, available from June to September, makes this a highly desirable holiday venue in this unique part of southern England.
Approached along a driveway, and within secluded, gated grounds, you'll come across this lovely 'home from home' with its brick facade and clean lines. Inside there's a very bright and spacious interior, stylishly furnished with carefully chosen details such as Farrow and Ball paint colours, Designers Guild fabrics and accessories, White Company linen and a state-of-the-art country kitchen. All very luxurious and welcoming.
An original walled garden borders runs along the rear of the property and alongside the pool. Lined with comfortable sun loungers, this is a fabulous area for guests to switch off and relax. You'll feel like you're sunbathing in the Med!
