Just returned from a lovely weekend away at the boat shed. Such a cute little place,a little in need of some TLC,needs painting and a spruce up, daughter loved the upstairs bed...she's definitely got muscles as it's quite hard work pulling yourself up there!! Fantastic to be so close to the town and nature reserve. New forest escapes very attentive. Will definitely book with them again and be back in Lymington soon.June 2021
Such a cosy little place, throughly enjoyed our early Christmas here. Excellent kitchen, so easy to use. Lovely area, great for dog walks!December 2020
Location of the hut is outstanding, nestled in a private space in a lovely area. A pub is close by and is a lovely place to stop in for a drink. Great for experiencing the new forest and the coast including a day trip to the Isle of Wight. The boat shed itself is beautifully designed. Only minor issues were no gloves for the woodburner or oven, the grill pan doesnt work on the hob only flat bottomed pans and a few marks on the duvet itself. Overall I would highly recommend the boat shed and we enjoyed our stay!October 2020
We loved our stay at The Boat Shed. Cosy, welcoming and all the comforts you need for an off grid stay. Some of the outside lights werent working but other than that, it was perfect.September 2020
We enjoyed a very peaceful week retreat at The Boatshed. Quiet location, well equipped, stylish accommodation - lovely little terrace for outdoor dining and enjoying an evening glass of wine. Cosy evenings with the wood burning stove alight. The garden is so pretty, with birds to watch and dappled sunshine under the trees. One little thing that would have enhanced our ratings would be to offer more comfortable outdoor chairs in order to relax there and read after a long walk. Lovely setting for walking along the coastal path and cycling into the New Forest. The local town provided everything we needed within walking distance. We enjoyed eating at recommended venues: The Mayflower, The Haven and lunch out at The Limewood Hotel in Lyndhurst. We could also recommend The Elderflower in Lymington.September 2020
Lovely little place. My daughter loved the vertical climb to bed every night ( it is steep). Great location near the Haven and yacht club plus only a short walk (ten minutes) to the Quay. I would say to make it amazing, the outside space needs a little maintenance ( trees blocked some sunlight and would benefit from some pruning) and I certainly think the garden furniture needs to be renewed. Aside from nice place to stay in Lymington for 2-3 people.September 2020
