About the property

Enjoy the beautiful and tranquil surroundings of the New Forest.

April Cottage is a comfortable cosy two bedroomed terrace cottage, set in the middle of the delightful village of Everton with our friendly local shop and pub offering scrumptious local produce.

Nestled in the heart of the New Forest, with only a short drive to the beaches, open forest and the charming market town of Lymington with it’s picturesque town quay, boutique shops and bustling Saturday market. The cottage has a sitting/dining room with a separate kitchen, conservatory and boot room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms (one double and one twin) with a shower room. There is a walled garden at the rear and a front garden with gravel parking for 2 cars.

Milford On Sea and Keyhaven is 'just down the road'; offering village shops, beaches, cafe's, pubs and restaurants. By taking a short walk/drive to Keyhaven, you will find a traditional pub and a beautiful walk along the sea wall, enjoying the spectacular views of the Solent, the Needles and Isle of Wight. Bird watchers will particularly enjoy the salt pans and marshes that are renowned for their bird-life. You can take a ferry from Keyhaven harbour to Hurst Castle and if you are feeling energetic you can walk back along shingle bank.

In the other direction is Christchurch and Bournemouth with long golden sandy beaches, theatres, pubs, restaurants and a buzzing nightlife.

Why Nicky Ryde chose Lymington

We fell in love with the New Forest when we used to bring the children here for beach and forest holidays. We moved here ten years ago and live only a few miles from Everton. We love the lifestyle being near the coast and New Forest - we enjoy sailing and all things boats as well as long walks with our dogs on the forest.

What makes this cottage unique

We bought April Cottage in 2016 and spent the early part of 2017 renovating the cottage. Everton is an extremely friendly village with lovely local facilities. We loved this cottage because of its beautiful rooms and private walled garden to the rear that leads out on to a lovely lane with a short walk to the local pub for a lunch or evening meal. The village is incredibly well positioned for access to both the coast and forest.

A wonderful stay in a very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable weekend break. The cottage was warm, cosy and had absolutely everything we needed. It was well positioned for visiting both the forest and the sea....which we did. We also had a meal at the local pub, which was amazing.

Can’t think of anything that would have made our stay any better.

Thank you

A lovely cottage in a good location for exploring the New Forest & Hampshire coastline

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the property and the wonderful weather we had added to this.

The house is very comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well equipped.

There is also a private walled garden with an outdoor table & chairs which was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine outdoors on a warm summer evening.

The cottage is perfectly located for exploring the New Forest & Hampshire coastline, anyone who like me was unfamiliar with this part of the country is in for a nice surprise as it is stunning & has something to offer for everyone.

On arrival there was fresh bread, milk, tea, coffee & breakfast for our first day which was much appreciated.

Excellent quality towels & bedding are used at the cottage & there are toiletries & hand wash provided too.
