About the neighbourhood
With lots of independent shops and restaurants (from the Angel Courtyard with its delicatessen and fab greengrocers, to the Cobbles by the Town Quay), Lymington is a delightful place to potter around. There is also a large Waitrose and Marks and Spencers Simply Food within 10 minutes walk of the Old Masters. The Solent is a delightful body of water linking the mainland to the Isle of Wight. Lots of fun is to be had a sea, either under sail or by motor, exploring the numerous creeks, towns and watering holes that grace the shores of the Solent, either on the Island or on the mainland. For those who don’t wish to sail, there is a fabulous nature reserve running 10 kms along the coast between Lymington and Keyhaven offering a wonderful haven to birds year round and superb walks.
How to get there
The Old Masters House is located in the Georgian market town of Lymington, in the heart of the New Forest. It is easily accessible from the M3 / M27 and is equidistant from Bournemouth and Southampton international Airports. The train service from London Waterloo (change at Brockenhurst ) takes under 2 hours so for some travellers offers a much quicker way to reach the house than coming by car. Check out special fares on SWR trains website.
