Inglewood Cottage

The Cottage

Inglewood Cottage, located within New Milton, a bustling small town within the New Forest District, is just over a mile away from the stunning beaches and seaside clifftop walks overlooking the Needles of the Isle of Wight at Barton on Sea.

The property offers plenty of space for short breaks or holidays for all; extended families – mums and dads, kids & grandparents; groups of friends, or couples. The internal layout of the cottage ideally lends itself to extended families and groups as the provision of a ground floor bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and two generously sized upstairs bedrooms with bathroom allow for separate spaces. The design of the roomy and airy comfortable lounge and kitchen with dining area affords excellent space for the visitors to entertain and relax. Dog friendly – we accept up to 2 dogs free of charge.

Externally, the rear garden is fully enclosed and gated, with two patio areas and a lawned area with pretty pergola tumbling with mimosa and honeysuckle; a perfect location for relaxing on a hot summer day with a selection of garden furniture available.

To make a home from home for our families our child and baby friendly equipment and toys include buckets & spades, crabbing & fishing nets, Paddling pool, Cutlery, plates & bowls, Cot, Highchair, stairgates, Bottle warmer, DVDs, colouring pencils & books.

As an added extra a Luxury Welcome Pack is included together with essentials of tea, coffee pods and milk.  Items included dependant upon length of stay.

For those with a yearn for sailing boats and historical influences, the nearby quaint Georgian towns of Lymington and Christchurch, provide for a step back in time with an afternoon’s stroll through their cobbled streets and quayside pathways.

The town centre provides all required shops for everyday items including a post office, pharmacies, local butcher, baker, small supermarkets, and a selection of cafes and takeaways. A large Tesco is also located within half a mile and is within strolling distance for those forgotten holiday essentials.
