About Michael Fuller

Mick & Linda have always loved the New Forest area and purchased the cottage and used as a second home for many years. We could not think of a lovelier area to spend time whether a day out or holiday.

Michael Fuller purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Michael Fuller chose Lymington

We chose the Pennington/Lymington area as it has the best of both worlds the property being within the New Forest National park but only minutes from the sea and the lovely Georgian town of Lymington. The property looks out over common land yet local shops and a pub are less than a few hundred yards away and within a few minutes drive all the unique shops, pubs and restaurants around Lymington are there for all to enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

The property offers a very tastefully and comfortably furnished living space being fully modernised with all new double glazing and,central heating system. It also retains some original features being a Character Victorian cottage. There are both coastal and forest walks with many other outdoor pursuits on the doorstep. Also easy access to many other attractions in the surrounding area. Parking is no problem directly outside the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got back after a lovely stay at the cottage. I have to say that the central heating works beautifully. I did need to turn it down a little from the pre set settings as it is very efficient and the cottage really retains the warmth well . This will be perfect for guests in the winter.

Thank you for making the cottage so welcoming and a home from home. My little 4 year old boy loved it and said he wanted to stay forever. Although the stairs are steep after a couple of uses he was able to easily get up and down unaided. The beds are super comfy and to have such lovely linen and towels to use was a real luxury.

Charming character property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for a week. It was warm and cosy with great amenities. Perfect for dog walking as there is a parkland area across the road. Highly recommended.

  • 4 of 5

With close parking and a comfy snug feeling inside the property we had a great week in Lymington. If my wife was being picky she would have liked a washing machine but apart from that that it was just great.

A great property and location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from four days at Sun Cottage and had a great time.

The cottage itself is a very well presented property, clean and tidy and with all general needs catered for. I've read in other reviews prior to our trip that the beds were very comfortable and yes they definitely were! Our dog was also very happy with the cottage and the garden. The only thing to be aware of are the stairs which are fairly narrow and steep. Be careful. I took a tumble on them on one occasion but my fault for not being careful enough.

The location is also great. It's in Pennington Village opposite New Forest fields and a nice park for the dog to run about in. Shops around the corner and the White Hart pub a 5 minute walk away. Had a lovely meal in the White Hart one evening with really friendly service. A further 5 minute walk and you are in Lymington town centre and harbour. I would also recommend the Walhampton Arms which is just past the harbour. We had another lovely meal there too.

All around you're in New Forest scenery which is what we went for.

All in all I would highly recommend this cottage and the location to visit. Having perfect weather was a bonus.
