New Forest Escapes - Beckheath House

Beckheath House

Beckheath House is a chic, artsy, relaxed cottage in East End has access to the open Forest directly opposite the driveway – for escapist walking and superb cycling.

The house is on one floor, has an open-plan kitchen and a well-planted enclosed garden. The annex bedroom space is a perfect quieter space from the main house.

For days out – turn left to local beaches and right towards The PIG for a smart lunch. You can also walk home from here. 

We love that the house is opposite the most extraordinary group of ancient oaks that feature in forest folklore for hundreds of years. Gypsy Wood is a collection of over 100 huge trees on a small knoll surrounded by heathland, free-roaming wild deer, ponies, cattle and the occasional pig. It is an escapists’ heaven.

There are large groups of ponies and donkeys that live wild in this area. If you walk down the drive you’ll see them every day. If you leave the garden gate open – they’ll be in!  Please Don’t! Runners, walkers and cyclists (on and off-road) will appreciate the location here. We love the walk to the beach and back – passing the brilliant East End Arms pub.

The location...

This area between Lymington and Beaulieu is a sleepy and lovely part of the National Park. Ponies, cattle and donkeys live wild on the lanes and you must go slow because they have right of way - and they definitely know it! Just opposite the house is the most wonderful piece of ancient woodland - Gypsy Wood - a must for picnics and tree hugging - some very special 'ancients' here.

The Turfcutters is a great local pub. About 1 miles away, walk across the heath, toward the nearest shop in East End village. The East End Arms pub is flashier and 1 mile toward the sea. Lymington is 3 miles to the west.

Read the beach guide in the blog links below for more info on beaches.

Lymington is often in The Times ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’.  Obviously we are totally biased and agree. It is marvellous. The quality of life here is very good. The town is surrounded by National Park to the north, coastal otherwise. There is a good mix of industry (boats) and retail. Less obvious is the connection to the rural workings of the National Park itself.
