We just love this picture-perfect cottage for two, where you'll find a warm welcome complete with charming, laid back yet luxurious interiors, offering a cosy escape whatever time of year you visit.

Carrington Lodge is a beautiful red brick home with a ground floor that flows from one room to the next, complete with underfloor heating and a wood burner. Stairs lead up to the oh-so-romantic bedroom with super king-sized bed, and an en suite with roll top bath and separate shower completes this tranquil homestay. Step outside and a pretty garden awaits, complete with hot tub. It's dog friendly too, meaning your best furry friend can enjoy a holiday too.

Set in the New Forest yet in a coastal position, this is a beautiful location for exploring the epic New Forest whilst enjoying all the benefits of being by the sea, from clifftop walks to sunny days on the beach.

Living and eating

Set on the ground floor, the living areas are semi open plan, with each space leading gently into each other, complete with underfloor heating to ensure a cosy space, whatever time of year you stay.

The kitchen area is light and bright, with white cupboards and worktops - a perfect space for creating meals for you and your beloved. Fully equipped with everything you'll need, there's an electric oven with conduction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, and the all-important Nespresso coffee machine with milk frother.

Next to the kitchen is a circular table and chairs just perfect for intimate meals.

From here, the space leads into the sitting room, where you'll discover an oh-so-comfy blue sofa, perfect for curling up on, and a wood burner made for cooler evenings. This is the spot you want to come home to after a long walk, to rest weary legs and sip on your favourite tipple. There's an additional armchair that's perfect for a quiet moment with your favourite book, whilst a Smart TV is on hand for catching up on your favourite boxset or indulging in a film night.


The stunning, super-romantic bedroom lies upstairs and is just a delight to retire to at the end of the day. With a super king-sized bed swathed in luxurious linens, cloud-soft bedding and sumptuous cushions and throws, you'll fall effortlessly into a deep sleep, waking up beautifully refreshed and ready for breakfast in bed. In addition, there's a large wardrobe to stow away belongings and a dressing table too.


Pretty as a picture, the en suite has a gorgeous freestanding slipper bath for long soaks, whilst there's a separate shower for wake-me-up ablutions. A heated rail ensures towels are kept cosily warm for you too.

Outdoor space

To the back of the retreat lies an enclosed garden, a lovely, landscaped spot to spend time in for those days when all you want to do is laze at home. Here, you'll find a patioed area complete with a table and chairs for alfresco meals, two loungers, a chiminea and a bubbling hot tub, the only place to spend your evenings - just perfect for unwinding muscles after a long walk or cycle.

In the Area

Set in the pretty village of Milford on Sea near Lymington and within the New Forest, this is a lovely spot to escape to with the best of the countryside and the coast right on your doorstep.

With a traditional village green surrounded by independent shops and great places to eat such as Verveine, an award-winning fish restaurant, and Saltwater, a café, bar and restaurant, Milford on Sea is just lovely. It also boasts stunning views over to the Isle of Wight and The Needles and a gorgeous waterfront that's perfect whether you want to sunbathe, swim, or indulge in water sports. Hurst Castle is also worth a visit, for epic views and a peek into life back in the reign of Henry VIII.

Pop in your car and there's a plethora of beautiful places to visit just a brief drive away. Take a day to explore the lush richness of the New Forest and its lovely villages such as Brockenhurst, Lyndhurst, and Beaulieu with its Motor Museum. Lymington is a grand day out for its yachty-totty lifestyle and it's where you can also catch the ferry over to the Isle of Wight, whilst the Saturday market is well worth exploring. For a spot of traditional seaside fun, head to Mudeford Quay for crabbing, whilst a walk along Key Havern Sea Wall is a must.

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

We needed a relaxing stay and Carringdon Lodge was the perfect cottage for it. We spent our time around the fire, and walking on the very nice beach not 10min from the cottage. Would highly recommend

don't delay book this holiday

This was a wonderful property, well equipped and organised.

Fabulous stay in this lovely cottage. A great place to relax and recharge

Very impressed with the cottage. We’ve stayed at a couple of your competitors before and this is the only one that lived up to the listing. Looking forward to booking with you again.

The perfect romantic getaway

Beautifully appointed property inside and out with every luxury you could imagine.

Beautiful lodge and garden . We had a great relaxing week there with excellent weather. It was furnished well with everything you could possibly need. Being a cottage the stairs are rather steep but we were fine with them

An amazing stay at Carrington Lodge. A five minute walk to a fantastic beach, which Ted our labradoodle loved, the village green is the hub of this little village and used by all. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a glass of wine from The Cave (local wine bar and tapas) and watch the world go by. Fish and chips from Mister Pinks is also a must. Would highly recommend this to any couple or small family so much to do and see. Big thanks to Sally the Housekeeper and Alison the owner for sorting out a problem with the Hot tub so quickly.

The cottage is very well equity and makes it feel like a very special place to stay.

Sumptuous and comfortable. Some lovely touches provided by the owner.

A really lovely cottage. Very well appointed and would certainly recommend.

A beautifully presented and comfortable cottage in a lovely village, close to the seaside and The New Forest. We totally loved our stay here.

Very comfortable. Fabulous bed . Home from home . Every small detail was thought of to ensure our stay was memorable

A lovely cottage, spacious and well decorated. Very warm and perfect for two people and a dog!

This mid terrace cottage is very nicely furnished and well finished, beware the very steep staircase. The local facilities in Milford, all within walking distance are excellent.

It’s beautifully designed ,very small though we have clearly spoilt ourselves with bigger places previously! We were also unlucky with the weather ! It has everything you need and a cosy atmosphere.

Beautiful cottage with a truly superb interior. Location excellent for beach walks and walks in the New Forest. Always a treat to come back to the log burner in the gorgeous cottage. So lovely that it was dog friendly too.

The location was very nice. The cottage was very nicely decorated, linen was beautiful, bathrobes, etc... We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage.

Carrington Lodge is a cosy, extremely comfortable little house which is stylishly presented. We loved coming back to the warmth of the log burner and hot tub after busy days out . It is well situated for some lovely coastal walks, and there are some good places to eat nearby.

We had the most perfect break, the decor in the cottage was beautiful. Carrington Lodge is a delight and we can’t wait to return.

We had a terrific time at Carrington Lodge. The house has been decorated beautifully and is an extremely generous size for two people. There are thoughtful touches throughout, starting with the lovely welcome tray (including fizz!). All the linen etc is great quality, which makes you feel you are in the lap of luxury. There's everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. There's a lot to do in the area and a HUGE smart tv if you fancy some down time. The log burner is very cozy and extremely effective! There are first rate places to eat in the area - with some in walking distance.

Such a beautiful home, love the decor throughout and the garden and hot tub very welcome additions! Pup loved running around the enclosed garden. Would love to visit again in the summer :)

Lovely unique stay in a very nice area. 10 min walk to the seafront. Thoughtful interior decor and very comfortable bed and sofa. TV and fireplace were excellent.

We had a wonderful week at Carrington Lodge. The location was perfect for us, with great coastal walks from our doorstep plus the New Forest in easy reach, and shops, restaurants and the bus route just a few minutes’ walk away. We loved the styling and layout of the house, and the garden was a delight. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedroom extremely comfortable. We definitely plan to return!

We loved this charming, cozy cottage. it was tastefully furnished with everything you could want, including a very comfortable bed. We loved our short stay in the lovely village and have every intention of returning for a longer visit.

A lovely retreat, A well decorated cottage, that was comfortable, clean & had all we needed. With the changing season it's been great to use the log burner.The attention to detail in decor and style is truly superb. The house is in a lovely area.

As always Boutique Retreats have not let me down. A beautiful house with a stunning garden. I could have stayed far longer! The location is great for walks along the sea or jump in the car and head into the forest. Saltwater Cafe is just around the corner for an amazing breakfast and there’s a gorgeous shop called No 64 where you can buy similar decorative pieces to Carrington Lodge. The hot tub is fab and the garden is beautiful.The property was a real treat to stay in and we had a wonderfully relaxed long weekend.
