Myrtle Cottage, Old Bursledon 

With its private pontoon, Myrtle Cottage is where memories will be made.   Adults lounging in chairs on the pontoon, in the sun & sipping a cool drink, or children squealing with excitement as they try their hand at crabbing.  Or just fish or swim off the lawn. Sunny day BBQ’s using the outdoor kitchen/BBQ facilities, & evenings sitting around the firepit or soaking in the hot tub. Adults & children will just love it.  On the south coast, 1hr 20 mins from SW London & very near the New Forest.




Manor Farm, High Street, Hamble


This Grade-II listed home’s white exterior and large bay windows make this address stand out from its neighbours and it all looks rather palatial, we must say. This impression continues when you head inside and spot the chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, the ornamental fireplaces and the lacquer dining table. The kitchen is rather more rustic in appearance, with exposed brickwork working nicely alongside the skylight constructed out of the sail from a boat — a thoughtful nod to the region’s nautical culture. Step out of the French doors and you’ll find yourself in the home’s garden, which comes with tidy plant rows, an alfresco seating area and a hot tub for those warm summer evenings — or even those chilly winter ones if you’re feeling hardy. The home’s location in the seaside village of Hamble-le-Rice presents a plethora of distractions to keep your guests entertained. It’s possible to see the Hamble River rolling on by from the kitchen and bedrooms windows, and if it gives you the inspiration to see it up close, it only takes two minutes to walk to the historic waterfront with its quay and marinas.


Straight out of a Bond movie, this spectacular home is unlike anywhere else on England’s south coast. Flooded with abundant natural light, the stylish living area offers a large curved sofa, elegant glass table, sleek and shiny furnishings, striking floor-to-ceiling shelves, nautical touches, and ample floor space – need we go on? This unique home welcomes up to fourteen guests – fit for those looking for a luxe, laid-back stay. The crowd-pleasing, curved kitchen and chic bar are a picture of pristine design – perfect for whipping up a round of cocktails and entertaining the group. It’s a villa made for seamless modern living and hosting. Outside, we can think of nothing better than sitting out on the private deck sipping sundown drinks, while watching the boats pass in and out of the harbour. But the self-care treatment doesn’t stop there. Rotate your mornings in the bubbling indoor jacuzzi and the fully-equipped gym. Drizzly days are best spent snuggled up in the lavish main living space, enjoying a movie screened on the projector integrated into the ceiling (because why not).
