  The Detail...

This charming holiday home sits the sleepy Hampshire hamlet of Keyhaven on the coast. Sleeping up to six guests, this is a sleek, contemporary house, that offers plenty of peace and tranquility, as well as comfy furnishings and modern amenities.

The Edwardian cottage was recently renovated fully, and it now has a modern and fresh feel. You can socialise with your loved ones in the living room which has a large Smart TV and comfy sofas as well as a nice big bifold door that opens up onto the enclosed garden. Step outside and the garden is an idyllic sun trap that with a nice lawn and plenty of comfy furniture. The deck stretches the width of the garden and features a large L shaped sofa and table. You also have a tipi for the kids to play in, and a fire pit to keep you toasty into the evening.

Avocet's kitchen is modern and has all the amenities you'll want to cook up a storm. It features an oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, a Nespresso Coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, and a wine cooler. There's also a stylish kitchen island, which makes preparing food nice and easy. You can then dine outside, or on the picnic bench-style dining table in the open plan living area.

The cottage is in one of the sleepiest parts of the hamlet, on a tiny, gravel cul-de-sac that's bordered by fields. So you can enjoy a peaceful night's sleep in the three super-comfy bedrooms. There are three bedrooms in the cottage. One can be made up as a super-king or twin depending on your requirements, then there is a double and a twin. The shared family bathroom has a nice bath tub, so you can enjoy a relaxing soak after a busy day. There's also a downstairs shower room with a WC.

If you venture out, you're a three minute walk from the Quay and the coastal path. Youll pass The Gun Inn on the way, which is famous for its many whiskies and smuggling history - so be sure to pop in for a drink. You may also wish to walk to Lymington along the sea wall, and along the way there are some lovely cafes where you can enjoy some tea and cake.

Hurst Castle is also nearby and is great for crabbing, foraging, and cracking games of hide and seek. Milford on Sea is a little further along and has stunning beaches for wild swimming and playing on the sand. Milford village is also a great spot for foodies, with some delightful places to eat, as well as a Microbrewery that encourages board-games and allows you to order in food from the village.
