The house forms an intrinsic part of Lymington’s history and identity. Positioned in a highly convenient High Street position, directly opposite St Thomas’ church the house could not be more ideally positioned for Lymington’s excellent shops, restaurants and Saturday market.

The house is also within minutes of the Marinas, Sailing Clubs and coastal walks as well as Lymington’s historic picturesque harbour. On the fringes of town the natural beauty of the New Forest National Park provides countless walks and cycle rides.

To the north is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 which links to the M3 for access to London. There is a branch line train link to Brockenhurst Railway Station (approximately 5.5 miles) which provides a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.

There is a range of both state and private schooling, with the popular Walhampton preparatory school close by.

The charming courtyard garden that gives the house its name is positioned centrally within the building and provides an extremely peaceful outdoor space well screened from the hustle and bustle of Lymington High Street. The courtyard has a distinct Mediterranean feel with glazed doors opening to the house on three sides lending this space the feel of an outdoor room, ideal for the summer months and warm summer evenings.

There is a superb integral garage opening off the high street which provides enough space to park a Range Rover. Behind the garage is a store room which has stairs down to a brick lined cellar. There is a door from the store room to the courtyard garden providing another means of access.


All mains services are connected.

Living in Lymington

This vibrant and picturesque Georgian market town, positioned between the Solent, Lymington River and the New Forest, has been a massive draw for many people over the years.

It has always attracted ‘yachties’ as it’s considered the UK’s sailing capital with its boatyards, marinas and sailing clubs. It is also popular with families and retirees escaping London and the Home Counties in search of a better quality of life, often light-heartedly referred to as ‘Richmond by the Sea’. It’s also the choice for many in the New Forest who are considering downsizing, but want to remain in the area.

Lymington is a lively hub. It has a very distinctive centre with many independents (such as Elliotts of Lymington for designer fashion) as well as a strong smattering of top quality names (including Musto and Waitrose). A tasty range of eateries includes cafes, pubs and restaurants – check out two good tapas bars, Elderflower on Quay Hill (the chef is ex-Chewton Glen) and stylish Stanwells House Hotel. And every Saturday the High Street is taken over by a proper, old-fashioned market with everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to flowers and plants, fashion to fishing equipment, and vintage collectables to artisan food producers.

Property ranges from elegant period townhouses in the town centre to big family homes down leafy lanes ‘South of the High Street’ and new waterside development. Looking for an Estate Agent in Lymington? Spencers are here to help.
