Lymington is a pretty, Georgian seaside town located just south of the New Forest. The town is famous for offering some of the finest sailing waters in the UK and is home to the Royal Lymington Yacht Club which makes it an extremely popular hub for the yachting enthusiast.

Lymington High Street is the venue for the bustling Saturday street market and has a tremendous variety of unique boutiques and shops, as well as cafes, pubs and restaurants to enjoy all year round. As well as this, there are many parks and areas such as the Old Town Quay in which to relax and take in the atmosphere of this charming, individual town. The Quay itself is reached via a small winding cobbled street and provides impressive outlooks over the Lymington River. One should enjoy the locally made ice cream from one of the parlours whilst taking in this wonderful view.

Lymington is a popular year round destination with a great deal to offer, including easy transport into and out of town. A regular ferry link gives easy access to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, whilst the nearby village of Brockenhurst also offers a fast rail service to London (approx. 90 minutes to Waterloo).

Cobbled streets and beautiful scenery means Lymington is a highly sought after area with demand frequently surpassing supply. A large portion of homes in Lymington have been redeveloped into modern apartments and retirement properties, although there are still some Grade II listed homes and properties dating back to the Georgian and Victorian era.
