The cottage is located in East End near Lymington and the National Park is very beautiful and it has a quiet undiscovered coast.

Local Attractions: Local beaches are lovely, very quiet and very British (some mud, some sand) and home to cows, donkeys and ponies. Tanners Lane beach faces the Isle of Wight and its a perfect spot for catching the last rays of evening sun for champagne or a takeaway pizza/curry. You can park at Tanners too. There are no rocks for rock-pooling but there is good mud to scratch about it, a stream and some great trees for climbing.

Other places to visit include Beaulieu Palace, Church and museums, Beaulieu village is lovely too; Exbury Gardens, Lymington markets on Saturdays, Walking in the forest is superb.
