Downton is a delightful hamlet with a lovely local pub, the Royal Oak and is only a short distance from the cliff top walks leading to Milford on Sea, considered one of the area’s prime hot spots. This popular coastal village is centred around a delightful green, offers a selection of highly regarded bistros and restaurants, and an ‘outstanding’ primary school. There is easy access to the town of New Milton, the New Forest with extensive walks and riding opportunities and Lymington, a vibrant Georgian market town with train service to Brockenhurst mainline station, nearby Keyhaven has a yacht and dinghy sailing club and there are local beaches for bathing and water sports. Shorefields Holiday Park has a large super market, bar and restaurant, swimming pool and tennis courts.
The lodge occupies an elevated position with lovely far reaching views. There is a wrap around decking which has been extended on the left hand side as you look towards the lodge from the stream which benefits from the sun all day. This area is ideal for alfresco dining, surrounded by well maintained lawned gardens and a private double parking area.
** HOLIDAY LODGE ** A truly outstanding example of this 50ft x 22ft Wessex Holiday Home lodge which occupies a superior elevated view towards Danestream and is presented in as new condition.

The position of the lodge is arguably one of the most preferred on the park being the quiet eastern side with a pleasant walk to either Hordle clifftop or Shorefield Country Park clubhouse and facilities.
Living in Milford on Sea
Milford on Sea is currently a property hot spot. It is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire and is delightfully picturesque with a proper village green at its centre. This green is often the focus for popular village events such as maypole dancing and the annual food festival and is fringed by a range of independents (including antiques shops, butcher’s, chemists and greengrocer’s). Recently Milford has developed something of a reputation as a foodie destination with its collection of tea rooms, bistros, wine bar, fish and chips and specialist fish restaurant, plus more.
This is a vibrant village with a friendly and lively community, and appeals to both young families (the primary school has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted) and older couples looking for somewhere on the coast to relax. The old-fashioned seafront stretches from Hurst spit and Keyhaven nature reserve in the east towards Christchurch Harbour to the west, and enjoys lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and the Needles.
A good mix of properties includes striking contemporary seafront homes and cliff top apartments with big sea views, quaint terraced old fishermen’s cottages and some substantial 1920s and 1930s Ravenscroft arts and crafts influenced homes in and around Barnes Lane.
