About Maureen Richards
We live in Gloucestershire but love being by the sea. Now we are semi retired we wanted a place near the sea to share with family and friends. We love being able to walk to the beach. Brian likes to fish and the barbecue is ready on our patio in case there might be a tasty sea bass for tea! We also love walking - preferably a circular walk including a pub. We have already found a good selection of these in the area. We will leave some suggestions for walks and days out in the lodge in case you are new to the area. We hope you can add to these through your own holiday sightseeing and exploring.
Maureen Richards purchased this House in 2014
Why Maureen Richards chose Downton
We looked at a lot of places along the south coast but nothing could beat the area around Milford on Sea. We liked the pitch that the lodge is sited on at Shorefield because it is very private and is not overlooked. It is a lovely sunny spot in a quiet cul de sac but still within a couple of minutes walk of all the site amenities. We love being in walking distance of the beach and Milford is a relaxing place which seldom seems to get crowded. Within 20 minutes by car you can be at more bustling coastal resorts or towns - such as Mudeford Quay, Christchurch and Lymington. You also have the beauty of the New Forest on your doorstep to explore.
What makes this House unique
As soon as you arrive at the lodge you can start to relax and unwind as it is so comfortable and well equipped. There is a small supermarket on the site. If you want to be pampered you are able to book yourself treatments at the day spa on site. We love to walk through the woodland walk from the site in to Milford. This follows a stream in to the village. It takes around 30 minutes and you can return along the seafront and back to the site. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants close by. We want you to feel at home and so will make sure the lodge is equipped with what we would expect as guests in order for you to enjoy your stay in our lodge at Shorefield.

Beautifully presented lodge with all that you need. Great kitchen facilities.
A lovely well appointed lodge, with good facilities such as DVD Player, choice of DVDs and even some boardgames. Comfortable for four to stay. Great location in the Shore field park too. Just a pity the pool & gym membership is extra.
April holiday Grandparents and two Grandchildren
Had a really nice holiday in this large sized Lodge. The Lodge is situated in a cul de sac and is very close to the good sized swimming pool with Sauna/ Steam room, bars and expensive on- site shop. The local beaches are shingle/stone but a very short drive away is the lovely Highcliffe beach where we spent a fantastic day, on route is a large Lidl store so we purchased groceries here. Kids loved the swimming pool and on-site adventure pirate themed playground. We all slept very well in this lovely Lodge and had plenty of room to individually chill with 6 people this may have been a bit cramped. All in all a great place to stay in a great location would recommend to anyone.
A pristine lodge with everything we needed and in a perfect tucked away location on the Shorefield holiday park and yet within 2 minutes walk of the swimming pool and clubhouse. Ideal too for the children as they also had space to play outside without worrying about cars. The lodge owners couldn't have been more helpful with the booking information. Highly recommended.
Shingle beach, with beach huts and café is approximately 800 metres from Shorefield Park - 3/4 minutes by car and 15 to 20 minutes to walk.
Car is recommended but many places are accessible by foot or local transport.
