Yes, we had a great time at Grafton and have
enjoyed the house very much. We really felt at home, nothing like an
ordinary rental. Thank you for your attention and all the little things that
draw the line between sheer business and a homely atmosphere.

A lovely base to explore the New Forest and surrounding areas. A great deal of thought has gone into making sure everything you need is provided. We travel up and down the country regularly and I can honestly say I have never stayed in anywhere so well equipped and spotlessly clean. Will definitely stay again.

We stayed at Grafton in early Feb. Despite awful weather, we had a brilliant weekend. The house is well located and Is in a quiet residential spot and easy to find. It is absolutely spotless with all the amenities you would expect such as wifi, large kitchen and bathroom and very comfortable bed. Even though there was only the two of us, it would be an ideal rental for a family holiday. Lots to do and see...try the noisy lobster at Avon Beach! Great crab sandwich!!

‘location, location, location - this lovely clean, tidy and spacious house (3 bedrooms) is situated in the middle of everything wonderful about this area of the UK. To the south within 40 minutes are the lovely sands of Bournemouth and Poole. 5 minutes down the road is lovely small village of Milford on Sea, great for coastal walks and just chilling out, recommend the small tea rooms. 5 mins drive to the north you are in the New Forest, great for walking or cycling. 15 mins to the east is the lovely setting of Beaulieu, the Motor museum is extremely interesting day out with the lovely grounds and house. However the gem is Lymington itself, great for just strolling around in the lovely little shops and team rooms. However our favourites were the local pubs, friend atmosphere and some of the best local ingredients from the area, fish and meat. My wife and I loved it and our dogs were more the than welcome by the owners. We can't wait for our next visit and maybe the children will get to experience this area as well. Tina the owner was very helpful into our first experience of self-catering and I thank her for her time. MB. - St. Helens'


We had a great stay at grafton it was a comfy clean and spacious home, everything we needed in the kitchen to cook if we wanted to as well. Love the retro tiles specially the clouds in the downstairs loo reminds me of living with my parents, happy memories. The garden is really secure for dogs and is a sun trap, lovely to sit out for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We had fabulous weather and the white hart pub up the road had a good doggie garden and very handy after a long day out. Lots of places to visit, plenty of good doggie walks and most pubs and cafes are dog friendly. To be honest it's such a lovely area we ran out of time and struggled to fit everything in so we will just have to visit again next year! We will be staying at grafton again I would highly recommend it.

"Just a short note to thank you for the privilege of staying at your lovely home. We found the property to be deceptively spacious and very comfortable to live in. It was really clean and amazingly well-equipped for a holiday rental. It was our first time to visit the location and the house was very well situated to enjoy the Coast and the New Forest. We have had a most enjoyable holiday." B.W. 2010


"Your house was excellent - comfortable and warm, and very well located. There were so many beautiful places to visit in the area. Our 18-year old son particularly appreciated the DVD collection. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Grafton. We were sorry to leave!" K.K. Germany. 2010


"I have stayed in a number of holiday cottages and I can certainly say that your's is the cleanest I have seen. We would certainly stay there again." L.J. 2010

"We had a lovely time & the house was wonderful" M.R. Germany


"A really pleasant holiday home, ideally situated for lots of beach"


We and our children enjoyed every day of our three week vacation at Grafton. The house is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood and you can reach the charming towncenter of Lymington within a vew minutes drive.
Within short drives you get to lots of wonderful places at the New Forest as well as different beaches or beautiful gardens. A boat trip from Lymington harbour to the Isle of Wight is worth doing several times. Within 45 minutes you also get to Poole and Bornemouth by car with great beaches and shopping facilities.
The house itself is spacious enough for a longer family stay and the rooms are light and cheerful. It's also nice to have a little garden and terrace of your own. Everything is well organized and clean. Car parking nearby the house is available. Anyway this was one of our most pleasant holiday homes and we will surely come back.
