Genesta House New Forest Cottages

Dream Accommodation in Milford on Sea

Do you dream of a pad by the sea? Hearing the sea from your bedroom window? Then perhaps 2023 is the year for you to visit Milford on Sea and take up residency in your own dream home for a while.

There’s nothing like entering the door of holiday home, where everything is neatly arranged, beautifully decorated and plenty of places for you to explore. There is something definitely freeing about leaving your own mess behind and starting for scratch in an immaculate new place. You’re not there long enough for things to slide – it’s like the novelty of moving into a new home before it becomes just like the old one.

The change of scene is refreshing and energising. Everything is different: the views from the windows, the books on the shelves, the toys in the box. Each cubbyhole delivers a new surprise, and because you’re on holiday, you’re more likely to partake in whatever it has to offer, whether it’s a gripping novel or a fiercely competitive family game of Pictionary.

You can set your own agenda for mealtimes, not worry about last orders at the bar and in Milford on Sea, you’ll be close to some amazing restaurants, pubs, independent shops and the beach for an early morning or late night dip whenever you fancy. All you have to do is arrive, unpack, open a bottle of your favourite tipple and relax.

Bi-fold doors open out on to a large patio to create a wonderful indoor-outdoor dining experience and socialising space.

Also nestled in the village is Plover Cottage, a 200-year-old dog-friendly cottage with two double bedrooms and a courtyard garden. Just minutes from the village and sea, there is no need to venture further afield if you don’t want to as everything is on your doorstep.

Or check out Hart’s Lodge in the nearby village of Everton where host Rosemary will extend a warm welcome to you.

But if you’re looking for a hotel experience then check out South Lawn Hotel, a 51 en-suite former country house with fine views over beautifully manicured gardens or The Beach House, a grade II listed building, now part of the Hall & Woodhouse brewery and has 14 en-suite bedrooms and views across to the Isle of Wight.

It’s also worth checking out Shorefield Country Park if perhaps you’re looking for all the on-site facilities that a holiday park can offer you. The park offers stunning self-catering accommodation and a range of facilities, including swimming pools, restaurants and entertainment.

Its sister site, Lytton Lawn Touring Park is also available to those who prefer sleeping under the stars, offering camping and touring pitches in a peaceful parkland setting. Guests staying at Lytton Lawn also get complimentary access to all the leisure facilities at Shorefield Country Park.

If you’re looking for traditional camping without the strings then Muddycreek Farm, a 28-day August pop up campsite could be for you. There’s no swimming pool, no laundry blocks, no strings of static caravans. In fact, if you came here in mid September you’d never even know the site exists. Yet in the height of August the 60 pitches each harbour a colourful tent, set out in the expansive 15 acres of space, there’s no danger of being hemmed in by other people’s guy lines.
