  • "Lovely house and very comfortable beds."

  • "A lovely cottage, well equipped and very comfortable."

    Our only problem while staying was with the front door key. Instructions given by the owner were vague and did not contain any instructions as to the yale lock/latch which we unlocked on leaving the property on the first day with a consequence we could not get back in with the key for another lock on the door - had to call the owner who arrived an hour and a half later! We did recommend that he told future tenants of this problem and explain not to use latch lock

The property

This stunning, 300-year-old, detached cottage sits within walking distance of the sea in the coastal village of Barton-on-Sea.

Boasting contemporary fixtures and fittings with a well-maintained, enclosed garden, The Old Cottage provides an exceptional base for a family and their canine companion looking to escape to the south coast.

After a day on the beach, freshen up in the family bathroom, choosing between a bath or shower over, before heading to the kitchen to cook up a storm.

Fitted with a contemporary range of appliances and quartz worktops, here you’ll have everything on hand to assist with home-cooking, whilst the dining area sits within the living space and seats up to eight guests.

Afterwards, slump on the corner sofa and watch a film from the Smart TV.

Those balmy evenings should be spent within the enclosed lawned garden, home to a set of table and chairs which is perfect for alfresco dining.

As the evening comes to a close, venture upstairs and discover three tastefully furnished bedrooms, including two king-size rooms and a TV, whilst there is a double on the ground-floor, ideal for those with limited mobility.

Within a mile there is a wealth of amenities, ranging from independent shops to pubs and restaurants, not forgetting the magnificent beach where you can paddle in the shores and bath on the sand.

Head to the New Forest National Park for scenic rambles, boasting picturesque landscapes, open moor and fantastic wildlife including the famous New Forest ponies.

Why not head out for a day to the Isle of Wight, easily accessible with ferries running from Lymington, which is just a short drive away.

Escape to the South of England with a stay at The Old Cottage.

About the location


Christchurch 5.5 miles; Lymington 7 miles; Bournemouth 11 miles.

Barton on Sea is a clifftop village adjoining the bustling town of New Milton, only 5.5 miles from Christchurch on the south coast. Situated at the eastern end of Christchurch Bay, there are spectacular views across the Solent towards 'The Needles' on the western end of the Isle of Wight, towards Hurst Castle to the east and towards Christchurch and Hengistbury Head to the west. The coastal path winds its way beside the local golf course towards Lymington, where you can take one of the regular ferries to the Isle of Wight. Explore the beautiful New Forest National Park with its wild ponies and pretty villages, whilst a visit to the National Motor Museum or the stunning gardens at Exbury is a must. No visit to this area would be complete without a trip to the cosmopolitan seaside resort of Bournemouth, with its award-winning beaches, vibrant shopping centre, theatres and restaurants, or enjoy the attractive riverside town of Christchurch or Avon Beach at nearby Highcliffe which is popular with surfers. No matter what time of year you visit there's always a lot to do to suit all ages.
