Avocet is a first class little find in an extremely quiet location. Keyhaven hamlet is sleepy and coastal. The cottage is in one of the sleepiest parts of it, on a tiny, gravel road cul-de-sac bordered by fields.
Originally it is Edwardian but has recently has enjoyed a full renovation. The owners, who live nearby, have done a sterling job and given it a modern, fresh feel. Everything is new, good quality and comfortable. The garden is well fenced and a proper sun-trap. The deck stretches the width of it and we expect that you’ll have the doors wide-open to let the sea breeze in.
Walks from here to the quay and coastal path in 3 minutes. You’ll pass The Gun Inn on the way (famed for it’s many whiskies and smuggling history). Walks left will take you to Lymington along the sea wall (passing some excellent cafe’s) and walks right will get you to Hurst Castle for crabbing, foraging, hide and seek. Or further on to Milford on Sea beaches for wild swimming (some folk do it all year around), and the sand that is revealed at mid-low tide.
Foodies will love Milford village. There are some really good, local spots here, and a Microbrewery that encourages board-games and allows you to order in food from the village.
