Overview

About the property

House in Lymington- Ideally Located on the coast of the fabulous New Forest yet only half mile from High Street.

Little Home Farm oozes country cottage charm and is nestled in an idyllic semi-rural setting with views from the upper floors of the surrounding countryside and Lymington River valley. Think log burners, beamed ceilings, and original features which all combine to create a lovely, cosy home from home in one of the UK's most beautiful areas. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms. This stunning property started life as a complex of wheat and cattle barns when it was still a working farm, with parts dating back to the 1850's. Set back from the road the location of Little Home Farm is superb being close enough to Town, Forest and Coast to allow you to make the most of this unique area.

We accept bookings either weekly-Friday to Friday, Midweek-Monday to Friday or Weekends-Friday to Monday.

About Tiffany Robinson

We are a family with 2 children aged 13 & 15 who are growing up (as I did!) loving this area and all that it has to offer! My husband and I both work from home (next door) so are on hand if there are any last minute problems or if you need a suggestion for a great local restaurant!

Tiffany Robinson purchased this house in 2002

Why Tiffany Robinson chose New Forest

I have been lucky enough to have lived in this area for most of my life and can not think of anywhere that can offer so much to so many, at anytime of year.

It has everything; the remoteness of the New Forest to the hustle of town. There are beaches and cities within easy reach, there are theme parks and cycle tracks, Museums and Theatres, sailing and walking, horses riding and rowing, cycling for miles with no real hills to speak of!

On our door step you have access, by ferry, to the Isle of Wight, by train to London or by plane to anywhere in the world!

Lymington itself is a beautiful Georgian town with plenty of fabulous place to eat and local shops to peruse!

What makes this house unique

Within 1/2 a mile there are familiar shops such as Waitrose, Tesco, boots etc plus a multitude of independent shops, Restaurants and Pubs.

In the other direction, and only 1/2 a mile, you have the open Forest with miles of tracks and the wonderful New Forest ponies to explore. There are beaches close by and the Ferry to the Isle of Wight is walking distance.

There is so much to do in the area that I can not possibly put it all here, but please feel free to ask for any suggestions!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just had a brilliant week here: two adults and two children, aged 4 and 7. Can't believe how fast it's gone - so much to do and such an excellent base for exploring the beautiful New Forest and the coast. The property is easily accessible by one of the main roads into Lymington and next door to a pub, although neither of which cause any noise disturbance. The property is a very spacious: the lounge, with it's massive TV, is incredibly grand with its sink-into leather sofas and log burner; three bathrooms, including a fabulous shower in the downstairs shower room; three bedrooms; utility room, including an extra fridge, freezer, washer and dryer and a very well equipped kitchen. The owners were very quick to address any issues and questions we had, and Steve was super helpful with his local knowledge of places to go. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch, which included a couple of cuddly toys for the kids and a bottle of wine for the parents. Thanks for a super week! :) .

Great Place, Both In Itself, And As A Base For The Area!

  • 5 of 5

Little Home Farm was perfect for our four-night stay. There were five adults plus a large dog, and the layout of the property, and generous proportions of the three bedrooms, kitchen and lounge, together with the garden area (Even though our stay was in October, we were able to sit out!), suited us ideally. All we could have expected in a rental proerty, and more, was provided; the owners, Tiff and Steve, clearly have a good eye for detail, comfort and practicality, as well as obviously taking pride in the place, for it was spotlessly clean. The house is superbly positioned in that you can walk into Lymington in twenty minutes, drive there in three, has a good eating pub next door (A one minute walk - at most.) and, turning right out of the parking area, you are immediately in "typical" New Forest land.

In a sense the above is what one might expect from very satisfied customers, but, without going overboard (Lymington pun...), we truly felt at home in the house, and were quite happy to spend a good deal of our stay in the property. It is a lovely old building, but tastefully modernised. My wife and I took the upstairs rear bedroom; its en-suite has a superb bath! Our daughter was in the upstairs front bedroom - the one with the balcony in the photo - and it has a great view over the town and countryside.

We cannot recommend Little Home Farm highly enough. We loved it!

Thanks again, Tiff

Good sized accommodation, comfortable beds but in need of a little tlc in places.

  • 3 of 5

We booked this accommodation as two couples and our small dog. On arrival our first surprise was that the garden is on the front of the property, which is actually on the main road into Lymington. The property is a good size and can cater for six adults comfortably. We found the accommodation to be not as clean as we would have liked, and the carpets upstairs were very dirty. We had a few issues whilst staying at Little Home Farm. One problem was solved quite quickly but another was not, although Tiffany promises me this was just a communication error. There is a lot of traffic noise in the bedrooms at night which we are not used to, which did disturb our sleep. We also found our privacy was limited in the garden as one of the owners bedrooms is looking out over the garden above the lounge area. All in all the property is in a great location for exploring and we took the ferry to the Isle of Wight during our stay, however, overall we were disappointed and would not stay at this property again as it did not deliver what it had promised.

Owner's Response: Thank you Karen for taking the time to leave your review, we appreciate all feedback as it helps us to provide a better service for future guests. I am so sorry that you did not find things as clean as you would have liked as we always strive to provide immaculately clean accommodation. As you know we have already put improvements in place to ensure no future issues. I do wish you would have given us the opportunity to put things right during your stay as we did when you mentioned about the spent light bulb. This may have improved your experience with us. I disagree about “a lot of traffic noise at night”, as although it can sometimes get busy during the day (it’s a B road), the road is hardly used at all past 8pm and no guests have ever mentioned noise at night. You mention about being surprised by the garden being at the front so I checked the listing description and I feel the photographs combined with the location map, satellite and street view make it very clear, you can literally (virtually) walk past the house, which is a wonderful feature! Overall I am really glad that you found Little Home Farm to be comfortable, a good size and in a great location for exploring this wonderful area!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the New Forest and Little Home Farm made us fall in love with the area even more. The house is simply gorgeous and is in a wonderful location. You have the best of both worlds as it feels like the idyllic countryside but is only a short drive from shops and restaurants. Tiffany and Steve are also the perfect hosts - there when you need them and supplied a lovely little welcome basket. Nothing was ever too much trouble and when we ran out of teabags, Tiffany wizzed round with some! I honestly could not recommend Little Home Farm more and we are already planning to return in Summer 2018!

Large spacious property in a good location

  • 4 of 5

Large spacious property surrounded by wonderful countryside and fabulous restaurants. So much to see and do just on the doorstep. Owners very helpful and suggested lots of places to go and superb restaurants. A word of caution however to those who may have any mobility issues in that the stairs to the two top floor bedrooms are very steep and narrow.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Little Home Farm, and for the word of caution, the stairs, and pond are mentioned in the description of the property but worth mentioning again just incase.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well presented cottage, and every bit as impressive as the photo's. It is an ideal location to explore the surrounding area.

The beds are so comfy, after a busy day, you get a great nights sleep!

The pub next door is very good, you get a warm welcome from friendly staff, and the food is great. Just a short walk home, at the end of the night.

We met Steve on arrival, and he was most obliging.

We had a lovely time at the cottage, and I am sure we will be back!

Thanks Tiffany and Steve

Delightful farmhouse in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Steve and Tiffany for giving us such an enjoyable week in Little Home Farm. It was super well-equipped and all was of such good quality which made it a really pleasure to come back at the end of each day. The beds were luxury. Steve was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble whenever we called with what must have been for him trivial little problems. Another lovely touch and certainly appreciated was the welcome basket awaiting us when we arrived filled with goodies and wine. I will be recommending the farmhouse to friends and family and I should love to return in the future once I am a little more mobile.
