Why Jeff & Julie Faraday chose Milford on Sea
Good friends of ours purchased a second home in Lymington and whilst my husband was helping them with the renovation of their property he went on a bike ride and saw the cottage for sale. It was in need of a complete renovation - perfect project! We were lucky enough to purchase in August 2011 and haven't looked back since. We love Milford-on-Sea and the surrounding area. Everyone who stays leaves heartwarming comments in our guest book about the cottage and the area. You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay at Rosemary Cottage.

A comfortable stay despite the weather and Milford on Sea has a lot to offer
Nice property but not suitable for toddlers because no way of guarding the narrow staircases.
Good but wouldn't go back until the youngest grandson is much older than his present 10 months.
Wonderful weekend stay
We had a wonderful weekend stay at Rosemary Cottage. It is a very comfortable with a lovely homely feel and has all the room and facilities we needed. The welcome pack was very much appreciated. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here to explore the New Forest.
Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased you found the cottage comfortable and homely and thank you and appreciate you saying you would recommend the cottage to people wanting to visit the New Forest.
Home from home cottage
We absolutely loved staying at Rosemary cottage! It was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and very cosy. We stayed over New Year and were pleased to see a Christmas tree in the lounge when we arrived, as well as wine, tea, coffee and biscuits. The rooms are very tastefully decorated, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms were a little bit of luxury. We have stayed in lots of holiday rentals and this was easily the cleanest.
The location was very good, with the beach, the new forest and lots of good restaurants on your doorstep. We will definitely return at some point in the future. Thank you Jeff and Julie
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. We are pleased that you found the cottage clean and comfortable. We are so lucky with the location of the cottage and with it being so accessible to restaurants/beaches and tourist attractions. It is lovely to hear you would like to return one day. Thanks again.
Ideal let for beach, sightseeing or chilling out
All arranged at less than a weeks notice and it all went very smoothly. Key safe for the keys and a very nice welcome pack of wine, sweets, coffee bags , tea and shortbread.
Only thing missing was milk but that was readily available in the village. The co-op is open every day till 10 pm.
Excellent heating will suffice winter. Good shower but only used one on 1st floor not attic. A bit hot even at its coldest setting. Not sure why since hand basins and kitchen not that hot.
Entertainment consists of Freeview tv but also DVD player and some DVDs and books. HDMI port at side of TVs so can use chrome cast or plug in your tablet if you have streaming subscriptions.
Photos give a good impression but essentially walk into living room followed by a dining area plus stairs and then the kitchen. On the 1st floor two bedrooms, a double and two singles plus large bathroom with shower and bath. On the next floor or loft conversion is a 2nd double bedroom with ensuite shower room and this is the room with a view towards the needles.
Helpful neighbour Jenny who introduced herself on the first day. There is a dining table for 6 and the kitchen is reasonably equipped to self cater. Only just enough knives and forks for 6. Most of food shopping can be done in Milford with the Co-op (open till 10 pm) and Hollands (open till 8 pm). There is also a very nice fish and chip shop and a number of eateries plus 2 or 3 pubs also doing food. Nearest large supermarket is a waitrose in Lymington. Plenty to do and visit in the area even in winter.
Downsides; Only one bedside table & lamp per bedroom and no instructions on what can be re-cycled in the white bags.
Website payment worked well and security deposit returned after a couple of weeks. All in all an easy way to book.
A perfect holiday cottage
Delightful holiday accommodation equipped with everything you could need. Tastefully decorated and furnished. We had a great week and hope to return.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the Cottage and that you would considering staying again.

There is always plenty to do, this may include you enjoying cliff top and forest walks, bike riding, visiting the local sanding beaches, country rambles, bird watching, sailing, fishing and kite surfing. The village itself has many activities going on during the year which are very popular with the villagers and holidaymakers alike. Beaulieu Motor Museum and Bucklers Hard are among places to visit or a day trip to the Isle of Wight is just a short ferry crossing away from Lymington. Mudeford, Christchurch and Bournemouth are only a short drive away.
