Milford on Sea

by thisisbanane

Milford is 3 or 4 miles to the west of Lymington, and claims to be one of the last true coastal villages along this part of the south. Although the beach has very little sand (it is mostly shingle), it is attractive for its views over the Needles (the rocks off the Isle of Wight). Typically English with a cafe selling ice creams and fish and chips, beach huts and a small green, you can also walk up on to the cliffs to Hordle. In the village itself are various shops including and old converted blacksmiths and THE best fish and chip shop, surrounding the old village green. The old Cof E church is just up the road and in the other direction you can get to the tiny village of Keyhaven. If you want to stay overnight, there is the Westover Hall Hotel, a camp site, Shorefields or Carrington caravan parks and a surfeit of B&Bs.

Milford has grown over the last few years, but is still very village-y. It is nicest to visit in the Summer. As you can see, this photo was NOT taken in the summer - it usually looks much nicer, honest!

Romantic hotel in the countryside

by Adam_uk

My parents are going to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in June and I wanted to surprise them with a trip away. Does anybody know a nice hotel/accomodation in a country house/hotel in Dorset/Wiltshire or Berkshire? We live in Southern Hampshire, so as long as it's not too far I would be interested to learn about it. I say countryside hotel, because I think this would be perfect for them, but really I am looking for somewhere luxurious for them to spend a few days. Any other ideas would be appreciated!

Thank you for your help!

When I said "not too far" I really mean less than 100 miles from Portsmouth, but somewhere nearer would be better.

Also, you could have a look in Alistair Sawday's Special Places to Stay - inns and hotels edition. There's an abbreviated version on the Net - www.specialplacestostay.com

There are a couple of websites you could check out. One is www.smoothhound.co.uk and the other is the Relais and Chateaux hotels site. The latter are luxurious and very posh. Your parents are lucky to have such a thoughtful son!

Zuriga in Surrey.. lots of grand places here, too.

Would certainly recommend the Woolpack in Beckington near Bath, nice rooms (might be a four poster) brilliant food and close to Bath (afternoon tea at The Pump room?). Really nice for a short break.
