Bedrooms

Up the wide staggered staircase, which leads up from the large inner hall to the first floor with its small library of books, are Keyhaven and Hurst. Moving on and up, to a private domain with its own staircase, is The Attic Suite, where you can lay in bed and watch the stars.

  • Hurst – On the first floor, leading off from the elegant galleried staircase is Hurst, a most comfortable double room with a 5foot bed and an en-suite shower and loo.
  • Keyhaven – On the first floor at the western end of the house is Keyhaven. A large room with generous sized shower and a loo en suite, Keyhaven is offered as a twin but can easily be made into a 6 double.
  • The Attic Suite – Light and airy as befits its name, this two room suite (with shower and loo) is accessed by its own stairway, giving additional privacy, and providing an ideal hideaway for that romantic occasion.

 

Hurst

On the first floor, leading off from the elegant galleried staircase is Hurst, a most comfortable double room with a 5foot bed and an en-suite shower and loo.

This light and airy room looks out across the rear lawns with their horse chestnut beech and willow trees, thence taking in views across open arable farmland down to the western Solent and the Isle of Wight beyond.

The Lymington/Yarmouth ferries are easily spotted marching hourly across this section of water, and on a fine day they share the space with a multitude of pleasure craft.

At night the water craft become specks of coloured light. If you open the windows and listen, you can hear the owls hooting, sometimes you will hear a fox or two, and in spring, the song of the dawn chorus is all that may disturb your morning slumber.

 

Keyhaven

On the first floor at the western end of the house is Keyhaven. A large room with generous sized shower and a loo en suite, Keyhaven is offered as a twin but can easily be made into a 6′ double.

For those guests who have spent their honeymoon with us a stay in Keyhaven on or around the first anniversary of your wedding brings with it a gourmet picnic hamper with our compliments. (Minimum stay three nights for this offer. Subject to availability).

Keyhaven enjoys the same stunning views as Hurst, across the lawns of the house with its chestnut beech and willow trees, and in spring the ornamental cherry right outside Keyhaven’s windows seems to fill the room with its spectacular blossom.

From these windows the daytime vista of water traffic , changes at dark to a twinkle of lights from the fishing vessels sailing out to find their catch, and from the Lymington/Yarmouth ferry that provides the local link to the Isle of Wight.

 

The Attic Suite

Light and airy as befits its name, this two room suite (with shower and loo) is accessed by its own stairway, giving additional privacy, and providing an ideal hideaway for that romantic occasion.

Views from up here include the western entrance to The Solent and the Needles lighthouse.On a clear night you can lie in bed and watch the stars
