A Georgian Market Town.
We are based in Lymington - a Georgian town - that lies on the south coast of England between Southampton and Bournemouth, surrounded by the beautiful New Forest and The Solent. With access to central south coast sailing waters and the Isle of Wight it is well known as a safe haven for sailing and motor cruising. Lymington high street hosts Lymington Market which is held every Saturday - a hive of activity throughout the year. A variety of shops line the wide market street, including grocery, clothes, art shops and pubs. Close to the water is the popular cobbled stone pedestrian area leading to Lymington Quay which is also full of shops and restaraunts. The slipway at town quay is where you can sit and enjoy the views over the Lymington River and across to the Isle of Wight. You'll see the Lymington Train crossing the victorian river bridge where it terminates at the Lymington to Yarmouth Isle of Wight ferry terminal - a service that branches to Brockenhurst and South Coast main train lines.
The New Forest National Park
The New Forest - a 200 square mile National Park - is home to some of the UK's most picturesque forest and villages. The ancient woodland and open heaths have many miles of public access routes. The forest has many opportunities for all outdoor activities including wild life spotting, treking, cycling and horse riding - there's always plenty of open space to enjoy throughout the year. Villages and towns in the New Forest include Brockenhurst, Beaulieu, Burley, Christchurch, Hythe, Milford on Sea, New Milton, Lyndhurst, Minstead, Ringwood and Sway and all are busy bustling places worth a visit.
The Solent separates the Isle of Wight and the South Coast as a 20 mile long stretch of water well known for not just yachting but for all watersports activities. At its center is Southampton Water with Lee on the Solent, the River Hamble and Portsmouth Harbour to the east. To the west is the Beaulieu River, Lymington River, Christchurch Harbour, Bournemouth and Poole Harbour.
