The Bothy is a secret hideaway, a mile from the centre of Lymington, close to the sea wall. Stunning views over the sea and nature reserves - bird lovers paradise. Recently refurbished, this tiny, pretty cottage has a private heated swimming pool during summer months.

The space
Dating back 300 years, the Bothy was tastefully extended in June 2015 and now offers contemporary accommodation for 4 guests in a large kingsize bedroom and a twin bedroom. Open plan living area which opens directly onto private garden and exclusive use of heated swimming pool. The pool is open from the first May Bank Holiday weekend until the end of September.

The snug area has a small 2-seater sofa in front of the wood burner. There are two additional stools for sitting around the fire. This area is cosy and a bit tight for 4 adults.

Beautiful white linen, hand towels, bath towel, bath robes and beach towels are provided.

Well equipped kitchen with basic supplies.

The swimming pool is very old and is carefully maintained by "Andy", the pool man who cleans and checks the condition every week. The pool cover helps keep the pool lovely and warm. Please be gentle with it when rolling it on and off!

I've lived in Lymington for nearly 20 years and love being near the sea. The New Forest is beautiful and has many breathtaking walks. I look forward to sharing our favourite places, walks, activities, restaurants and pubs with you.
