Located on the outskirts of the New Forest on the Hampshire coast, Lymington is ideal for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle, whilst also providing more than enough to keep you entertained.
The town itself has undergone a process of rejuvenation in recent years, evidenced by the growth of new cafes, bars, restaurants and brand name shops as well as independent designer boutiques. At the same time Lymington continues to retain plenty of culture and heritage, with several parks, a 9-hole golf course, an open air swimming pool and, more recently, a skatepark.
Lymington has long had a close association with sailing, and is home to many world famous regattas. Whether you're a sailor yourself or just like to watch others compete, the town has two sailing clubs providing opportunities for anyone to get involved. And after the UK's success on the water in the Olympics, sailing has never been more popular!
Lymington's close proximity to the New Forest makes it an ideal springboard from to which to enjoy all that the park has to offer, from camping, rambling and cycling to seeking out all sorts of wildlife. Just down the road is the popular tourist town of Lyndhurst, with a few miles along the coastline is Southampton, where you'll find plenty of exciting things to do and see.
