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.
