Pylewell Park House

Glorious! This aristocratic stately home is well known locally for it’s particular style of creative fun. Come here for a heady combination of glamour and eccentric British life.

Pylewell is steeped in history and there are many stories that can be told about it’s life and development through the ages. Staying here is to go back in time, the 1940’s, the 1920’s and the late 18th century are alive and well here. Make sure you bring your black tie, smoking jackets and wigs… this isn’t a place to hang back…

The whole place is yours. You can take 3 bedrooms for couples or 6 for singles. There are 10 in total. Each has an ensuite bathroom – many the size of a normal house large bedroom. All the bedrooms along the front of the house have wonderful views over the Solent and the Isle of Wight.

The house has 27 acres of gardens and a further 15 acres around the ornamental lake and arboretum – famous for the collection of Australian and Asian trees. A collection of rhododendrons was gradually established on the banks of the lake between 1912 and the early 1920s, at which time the entire gardens had reached their most elaborate stage.

The house is available during COVID times as a private rental because of the significant limitations on weddings, for which it would normally be fully booked for.

The location...

If you can drag yourself away from the gardens, estate (don't forget the beautiful cricket pitch), then you could walk through the fields by the house and you’ll reach the East End Arms in a 20 minute amble.

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.
