Why we’re in love with the autumn getaway

Have you noticed? The leaves are beginning to fall, and you need to put the lights on that bit earlier. It’s official – autumn is well on its way. Here’s to embracing the changing season!

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Yachtsman's Cottage:

The cottage was very comfortable and cosy, but had all the mod cons, with a real eye for detail.

The location was perfect, tucked away in a quiet area of Lymington. A really restful week!

Lovely cottage, beautifully furnished, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were very comfortable, bathrooms clean and my son loved having his own en-suite. Plenty of space for the three of us we have already looked at booking again! Thank you

The retreat was a delightful place to stay lovely interior with unexpected extras that made the whole experience memorable

On arrival at the cottage you immediately get the feeling of a warm, cozy and comfortable environment. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need for short break. It is a good location for access to shops, restaurants, pubs and local attractions. Our group all agreed that a further visit would be desirable.

We had a very comfortable stay in Yachtsmans’s cottage. It’s a great location for exploring both the coast and the Forest. We particularly appreciated the log burner and well equipped kitchen.

Yachtsmans Cottage was a wonderfully well equipped and conveniently situated. We particularly loved the fluffy towels, comfortable beds and sunny courtyard. We enjoyed many walks directly from the doorstep as well as a great choice for places to eat and drink. Boutique Retreats customer service was absolutely brilliant, due to Covid lockdown, our stay was postponed twice but each time the BR Team helped us find a new property and move our booking to a time convenient for us.

A beautiful bijou cottage in a perfect location.

Our stay at Yatchmans Cottage was very comfortable and enjoyable. I can't wait to book again. The owners thought of everything to make this cottage special. The courtyard garden was fabulous for morning coffee/breakfast and evening drinks..... Location was excellent, close enough to walk to Quay, shops, restaurants but still quiet. Can't wait for my next visit. Thank you!
